The Washington Post has finally made the admission that President Trump did not incite the riot at the Capitol on January 6th, now reporting that the attack was “planned days in advance.”
The report is buried in the “local” and “legal” sections of the Washington Post website, as archived by The National Pulse here.
Written by three non-political reporters, the Washington Post story illustrates just how out of control the blatant misinformation about “incitement” by the President has been over the past two weeks.
“Self-styled militia members from Virginia, Ohio and other states made plans to storm the U.S. Capitol days in advance of the Jan. 6 attack, and then communicated in real time as they breached the building on opposite sides and talked about hunting for lawmakers, according to court documents filed Tuesday.
“While authorities have charged more than 100 individuals in the riots, details in the new allegations against three U.S. military veterans offer a disturbing look at what they allegedly said to each other before, during and after the attack — statements that indicate a degree of preparation and determination to rush deep into the halls and tunnels of Congress to make “citizens’ arrests” of elected officials.”
The report goes on:
The arrests this weekend of several people with alleged ties to far-right extremist groups, including the Oath Keepers, the Proud Boys and the Three Percenters, suggest that the riot was not an entirely impulsive outburst of violence but an event instigated or exploited by organized groups. Hours of video posted on social media and pored over by investigators have focused on individuals in military-style gear moving together.
“This is the first step toward identifying and understanding that there was some type of concerted conspiracy here,” said one senior official with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, which is leading the investigation.
The news item even contains a quote from one of the alleged instigators of the move on Congress, which states:
“Keep eyes on people with Red MAGA hats worn backward. Saw a report that they were going to infiltrate crowd tomorrow,” Crowl was warned Jan. 5 in another Facebook message, as he prepared for what he called an “Oathkeepers op,” court documents said.
The idea of infiltrators was originally dismissed, without reason nor evidence, by establishment media outlets and left-wing talking heads. Now the claims are made in a court filing, though no corporate media outlets have yet retracted their rejection of such ideas.
Indeed The National Pulse had previously reported on claims that political events would be hijacked to foment violence – as part of our ongoing investigation into the Transition Integrity Project.
The National Pulse was also the first media outlet in the world to break down the timeline of events on January 6th, disproving the corporate media narrative that President Trump incited the violence.
