Timeline and questions about the attempted coup.

Last edited Wed Jul 20, 2022, 08:39 AM - Edit history (1)

Timeline and ?s

Shit took place on 1/5 and 1/6/21
The S.S. were told to preserve their texts on 1/16/21
The inauguration of Joe Biden took place on 1/20/21
The S.S. texts were deleted on 1/25/21

On 1/4/21 or 1/5/21 Chuck Grassley said he did not think that that Vice President Pence
was going to be there (@ the Capitol) to oversee the county of the electoral votes on 1/6/21.

An investigation has begun into the removal of panic buttons from the congressional office of Ayanna Pressley prior to last week’s storming of the Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump.

Of the 658 windows on the US Capitol there were 12 that had not been upgraded to be bomb proof
and the 1/6/21 rioters hit each one of those windows.

“Just say the election was corrupt and leave the rest to me and the Republican congressmen,” Trump implored top Justice officials in a Dec. 27, 2020, conversation memorialized in then-acting Deputy Attorney General Richard Donoghue’s contemporaneous notes.

And even after the attempted coup 70% the republican congresspersons voted not to uphold
the results of the 2020 election.

There are a group of offices available for privacy that only a handful know about.

Nancy Pelosi's daughter said she grew up in the Capitol Building and thought she knew every square foot of it. But she had never heard of the private offices hidden away.
Those were breeched on 1/6.

There had to be inside help, these offices, the panic buttons, and windows all point to that.

That points to widespread GOP MOC involvement.

When the MOCs had to shelter in place in tight quarters, they were asked to wear masks.
Every single GOP MOC adamantly refused to wear a mask.

There was video of GOP members laughing and talking while this is going on, as opposed to the Dem MOC who are clearly terrified of what might happen with the crowd gets to them.

One Dem MOC has cancer and was in treatment. Concerned for her safety Rep Swalwell asked one GOP MOC to please put a mask on. This guy was a personal friend of Swalwells.
Swalwell was shocked when his friend adamantly refused, point blank and would not budge on the issue.

My theory is that there had been a prearranged plan. GOP MOCs would not wear masks and that was a sign to the insurrectionists to leave them alone. And only go after those wearing masks.

I thought to myself that the mob would go after anyone in a suit, because bloodlust. Attacking people wearing masks would have limited injury to the moc on traitor's side.

That is where the traitors believed the electoral ballots would be kept.

They are Trumpites — loyal to a frustrated NAZI despot over the Constitution of the United States, wannabe white supremacists, mafia and Mafiya, the warmongering, mass murderers, grifters and parasites, the psychotic, sociopathic, deluded, and clinically, criminally and practically insane, the stupidest, cheapest, forest burning, short-sided penny wise and pound-foolish morons, plutocrats, oligarchs, and kleptocrats who seek justification for their love of money and hatred of others while proud to pursue lives as the lowest of the low.
