CA Man Who Threatened Congressman's Family Lied About Being AF Vet & Alameda County Sheriff


Quote:
The story of a whackjob who sent threatening text messages to family of Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (NY-Cool has taken an interesting turn. The story began on Tuesday...

Air Force Times

NEW YORK — A California man disgruntled about the presidential election result was arrested Tuesday on charges alleging he threatened family members of a New York congressman and a journalist in text messages sent during the attack on the Capitol, authorities said.

Robert Lemke, 35, was arrested in Bay Point, California, on charges filed in Manhattan federal court. He was scheduled to make an initial appearance in federal court in Northern California on Wednesday.

A criminal complaint charging him with threatening interstate communications said he identifies himself on Facebook as a former captain in the U.S. Air Force and a retired sergeant with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office in California.

Details emerged on Wednesday...

Politico

“Your brother is putting your entire family at risk with his lies and other words. We are armed and nearby your house,” one of the messages read, according to the complaint. “You had better have a word with him. We are not far from his either. Your words have consequences. Stop telling lies; Biden did not win, he will not be president.”

Jeffries identified himself on Tuesday as the lawmaker in the complaint. Speaking with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Jeffries said his brother received the message just as members were being evacuated from the Capitol as armed rioters stormed the building to stop the certification of President Joe Biden’s election. President Donald Trump was impeached the following week on a charge of inciting the insurrection, and several of the rioters publicly said they were motivated to storm the Capitol because of Trump.

“What was chilling in the message that was received is that this individual said, ‘Stop telling lies. Biden did not win. He will not be president,’” Jeffries told Hayes on Tuesday. “And so he was radicalized by the big lie that Donald Trump told and that has been supported by so many Republicans in the House and the Senate.”

Today the story took a somewhat unexpected turn…

Air Force Times

The Air Force said Wednesday that it cannot find records supporting the service claims of a man who is accused of threatening the family members of a New York congressman and a journalist.

Robert Lemke, 35, of California, identified himself on Facebook as a former Air Force captain and a retired sergeant with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, according to a criminal complaint.

(snip)

The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office in California likewise denied Lemke’s claim of service with them on Tuesday.

Completely stupid and a baldfaced liar just like his hero. Who could have guessed?

There's a growing body of evidence of tacit support within the Trump administration. Why did Trump replace the top staff within the Department of Defense and Justice with his administration winding down? Was he intending to defang the FBI investigations of impending white nationalist violence in support of overturning the election? Was it intended to hamstring any response by the National Guard to attacks on the Capitol? That is what happened.

When die-hard supporters of President Donald Trump showed up at rally point “Cowboy” in Louisville on the morning of Jan. 5, they found the shopping mall’s parking lot was closed to cars, so they assembled their 50 or so vehicles outside a nearby Kohl’s department store. Hundreds of miles away in Columbia, S.C., at a mall designated rally point “Rebel,” other Trump supporters gathered to form another caravan to Washington. A similar meetup — dubbed “Minuteman” — was planned for Springfield, Mass.

That same day, FBI personnel in Norfolk were increasingly alarmed by the online conversations they were seeing, including warlike talk around the convoys headed to the nation’s capital. One map posted online described the rally points, declaring them a “MAGA Cavalry To Connect Patriot Caravans to StopTheSteal in D.C.” Another map showed the U.S. Congress, indicating tunnels connecting different parts of the complex. The map was headlined, “CREATE PERIMETER,” according to the FBI report, which was reviewed by The Washington Post.

“Be ready to fight. Congress needs to hear glass breaking, doors being kicked in,” read one posting, according to the report.


41 minutes of fear: A video timeline from inside the Capitol siege
The Post obtained hours of video footage, some exclusively, and placed it within a digital 3-D model of the building. (TWP)
FBI agents around the country are working to unravel the various motives, relationships, goals and actions of the hundreds of Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Some inside the bureau have described the Capitol riot investigation as their biggest case since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, and a top priority of the agents’ work is to determine the extent to which that violence and chaos was preplanned and coordinated.

Self-styled militia members planned days in advance to storm the Capitol, court papers say

Investigators caution there is an important legal distinction between gathering like-minded people for a political rally — which is protected by the First Amendment — and organizing an armed assault on the seat of American government. The task now is to distinguish which people belong in each category, and who played key roles in committing or coordinating the violence.

Video and court filings, for instance, describe how several groups of men that include alleged members of the Proud Boys appear to engage in concerted action, converging on the West Front of the Capitol just before 1 p.m., near the Peace Monument at First Street NW and Pennsylvania Avenue NW. Different factions of the crowd appear to coalesce, move forward and chant under the direction of different leaders before charging at startled police staffing a pedestrian gate, all in the matter of a few minutes.

An indictment Friday night charged a member of the Proud Boys, Dominic Pezzola, 43, of Rochester, N.Y., with conspiracy, saying his actions showed “planning, determination, and coordination.” Another alleged member of the Proud Boys, William Pepe, 31, of Beacon, N.Y., also was charged with conspiracy.

Minutes before the crowd surge, at 12:45 p.m., police received the first report of a pipe bomb behind the Republican National Committee headquarters at the opposite, southeast side of the U.S. Capitol campus. The device and another discovered shortly afterward at Democratic National Committee headquarters included end caps, wiring, timers and explosive powder, investigators have said.

Pipe bombs found near Capitol on Jan. 6 are believed to have been placed the night before

Some law enforcement officials have suggested the pipe bombs may have been a deliberate distraction meant to siphon law enforcement away from the Capitol building at the crucial moment.


After an attempted coup, collusion by Trump appointees and Republicans in Congress, and support for violence by many Republican officials, it is clear that the Republicans in Congress have no intention to divorce themselves from Trump and his treason.

'A Sad Moment': Michigan Gov. Whitmer Responds to State GOP Chair Calling Her a Witch


Quote:
NYT: Justice Department investigating Rep. Gaetz over sex trafficking claim
CDC "deeply concerned" about COVID pandemic trajectory as cases rise again

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, slammed state GOP Chair Ron Weiser after he described her and two other top female Michigan officials as "witches," suggesting they should be burned "at the stake."

Weiser, who also serves as a regent for the University of Michigan, made the highly controversial remarks during a political event in Michigan's Oakland County.


"Our job now is to soften up those three witches and make sure we have good candidates to run against them, that they are ready for the burning at the stake," he said, referring to Whitmer as well as Michigan's Attorney General Dana Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, both of whom are Democrats.

When asked about the Michigan Republican leader's remarks, Whitmer told CNN on Wednesday: "It's just really a sad moment in America where people who are leading are treated with such disrespect."

The governor pointed out that the FBI arrested a group of men last year who were actively plotting to kidnap and possibly assassinate her. Whitmer said this is a "dangerous moment."

"We've seen threats come to those of us in office," she said, pointing to the "plot to kidnap and kill me." Whitmer noted that "we're seeing people in court this week on those very charges," saying remarks like the ones made by Weiser are "throwing gas on this fire."

"It is dangerous and it's unacceptable," Whitmer said. "And I've been, for almost a year now, calling on people to bring down the heat."

Newsweek reached out to the Michigan GOP for comment, but did not immediately receive a response.

Weiser issued an apology on Saturday for his remarks. But the GOP leader faces potential censure from the University of Michigan's board of regents due to the comments.

Trump supporters could be incited to future violence by his continued promotion of 2020 election lies, DOJ and judges say


Quote:
Former President Donald Trump's continued promotion of the "big lie" about the 2020 election could still incite his followers to violence, the Justice Department and judges noted repeatedly this week, as courts weigh the future dangerousness of US Capitol riot defendants.

Two federal judges this week brought up the disinformation about 2020 from right-wing figures, and even Trump himself, as they considered keeping alleged Capitol rioters in jail before trial.


And prosecutors from the Justice Department are arguing more explicitly that violent threats stemming from Trump-backed conspiracy theories are still alive, and that Trump supporters could be called to act again.

"It's never too late" for pro-Trump extremist groups like the Proud Boys to mobilize, because the right-wing political climate hasn't shifted much since Trump left office, federal prosecutor Jason McCullough argued at a hearing for one of the accused Proud Boys leaders earlier this week.

The comments from prosecutors and judges demonstrate how Trump's post-presidency lying about 2020 is complicating matters for some of his most ardent supporters -- including people who heeded his call to come to Washington on January 6 and are now in jail cells awaiting trial.

Trump still 'constantly' lying about 2020
Most Trump supporters still believe his lies about 2020, according to recent polling, including a Quinnipiac University survey from February that found 76% of Republicans think there was "widespread fraud" in the election. There is no proof of massive vote-rigging, audits in key states confirmed the accuracy of the results, and election officials from both parties said the vote was free and fair.

Nonetheless, Republican lawmakers in swing states have used their concerns about fraud to propose and enact restrictive voting laws that many experts say make it harder to cast a ballot.

Trump has embraced many of these proposals and has continued peddling conspiracies about the election in recent interviews and statements. He said Friday that "large scale Voter Fraud" occurred and praised Arizona Republicans who ordered a new audit of ballots in the Democratic stronghold of Maricopa County, despite previous audits finding no widespread irregularities.

Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan raised some of Trump's other recent comments in a written opinion Tuesday that kept in jail one of the men accused of dragging and beating police on the Capitol's terrace.

"The Court is not convinced that dissatisfaction and concern about the legitimacy of the election results has dissipated for all Americans. Former President Donald J. Trump continues to make forceful public comments about the 'stolen election,' chastising individuals who did not reject the supposedly illegitimate results that put the current administration in place," Sullivan wrote.

The issue came up Thursday at a hearing for another defendant in the same case.

"The unfounded allegations are out there, and they're being made constantly by the former President," Sullivan said, prompting a defense attorney to condemn Trump's comments as "absolutely reprehensible" and express hope that "somebody" will "try to stop" the lying.

The defendants that Sullivan was worried could commit future violence -- Jack Whitton of Georgia and Michael Lopatic of Pennsylvania -- have remained in jail since their arrests.

Right-wing media still 'stoke' anger
The "big lie" lives on not just in Trump's press releases but also in many of the media outlets that cheered him on during his presidency, which are deeply influential among his followers.

Many of these right-wing outlets have given airtime to false claims about the 2020 election.

"It's not as if the effort by some political leaders and media figures to stoke this sort of anger has abated in any way," Judge Amy Berman Jackson said at a court hearing on Thursday, where she weighed releasing from jail an alleged Capitol rioter who claimed he was called upon by God to enter the Senate chamber and said he would take up arms in a revolution if needed.

She added, "Isn't it fair to say that the same political issues and the same political concerns are being pumped out into the airways on a daily basis?"

But because of strict legal standards, Jackson chose to release the man, Joshua Black of Alabama, on home detention. He has pleaded not guilty to an eight-count indictment.

"Do you understand that if you're opposed to the current leadership of this country and you choose unlawful means to bring about change, you're going to be in violation of your conditions of release?" Jackson asked Black in court.

"Yes, your Honor, I understand," he said, then took an oath, with his eyes closed and one handcuffed hand up, to abide by her ruling.

Future dangerousness
The question of future dangerousness by Capitol rioters keeps coming up in part because of an appellate ruling that prompted judges to ask whether a pro-Trump mob could attack again.

That federal appeals court, whose decisions govern the trial courts handling the Capitol riot defendants, noted that January 6 was a unique event -- with the threat of the crowd not likely to be repeated. The court said "specific circumstances" made January 6 possible, because the Electoral College vote was happening while Trump supporters rallied against the perceived of fraud.

That has opened the door for prosecutors to argue more about the current political environment. In court filings about detaining Capitol rioters, the Justice Department now addresses head-on the possibility of persistent danger inspired by Trump.

Prosecutors explained to a judge in a court filing Thursday that its Capitol riot cases pursue right-wing militia members and people who have said they want to "continue in similar violent endeavors until the current administration is overthrown."

The prosecutors also noted in a separate criminal case on Friday that defendant Nathaniel DeGrave had posted online in late January a picture of Trump, calling him his "idol." DeGrave is accused of driving cross-country to the Capitol with two others who had assembled a weapons cache and a walkie-talkie communications plan, then tussling with a Capitol Police officer. He has pleaded not guilty.

"The defendant is of course entitled to his political preferences. But given his prior acts of traveling across the country with weapons to 'stop the steal' and interfering with the peaceful transition of power on behalf of his idol," prosecutors wrote, "and his idol's continued inflammatory rhetoric about a stolen election, the defendant continues to pose a concrete and articulable threat to the community."

U.S. grand jury adds WMD charge against men accused of plan to kidnap Michigan Gov. Whitmer


Quote:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -A federal grand jury added new charges on Wednesday against three men charged with conspiracy to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, saying they planned to use weapons of mass destruction to destroy a bridge, the Justice Department said.

Adam Fox, 40, of Wyoming, Michigan; Barry Croft Jr., 45, of Bear, Delaware; and Daniel Joseph Harris, 23, of Lake Orion, Michigan, were charged with knowingly conspiring to use weapons of mass destruction against persons or property, the department said, in addition to a kidnapping conspiracy charge in October.

The superseding indictment on Wednesday alleges that they three planned to destroy a nearby bridge, which would have harmed and hindered Whitmer's security detail and any responding law enforcement officers, a Justice Department statement said.

The new indictment also alleged that Croft and Harris possessed a "destructive device" that was not registered as required by U.S. federal law. It said Harris also possessed an unregistered semiautomatic assault rifle.

Fourteen men were accused of taking part in a plot by right-wing militia extremists to abduct Whitmer. One of them broke ranks with his co-defendants in January and pleaded guilty to a federal kidnapping conspiracy charge.

Prosecutors have said all 14 suspects targeted Whitmer in retribution for public health orders she imposed placing restrictions on a wide range of social and business activity to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.

Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego and GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene got into a heated Twitter exchange this week, exposing the deep anger still roiling the ranks of Congress after the Capitol riot on January 6.


After Greene, the freshman Republican from Georgia who's embraced a host of far-right conspiracy theories, called her Democratic colleagues "the enemy within" in a tweet on Sunday, Gallego said Greene was aligned with the Capitol rioters.

"I was trying to figure what type of pen to stab your friends with if they overran us on the floor of the House of Representatives while trying to conduct a democratic transition of power," Gallego said. "So please shut your seditious, Qanon loving mouth when it comes to who loves America."

Gallego, a Marine combat veteran from Arizona, helped colleagues with their gas masks as Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in January. He also provided shelter in his office to several journalists after they were denied entry into a safe room.
