Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

U.S. prosecutors have obtained a conspiracy indictment against six California men associated with the Three Percenters right-wing militia, the latest in a series of such charges arising from the Jan. 6 riot by former President Donald Trump's supporters.

Two of the six men, Alan Hostetter and Russell Taylor, were seen a day before the riot with Roger Stone, a friend and adviser to Trump, during a protest outside the U.S. Supreme Court against the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

Beginning in December 2020, the six men hatched a plan using the encrypted messaging app Telegram to bring weapons to Washington and storm the Capitol, according to the indictment. Prosecutors said the men selected Jan. 6 because of a Dec. 19 Trump Twitter post stating: "Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!"

So much for the myths that there aren't conservatives in CA and that new agers are all peaceful.

Enough stories about charges.
Where are the trials and sentences?
This administration is slow walking itself into one term irrelevance.

"This administration is slow walking itself into one term irrelevance."

Don't be ridiculous. Now is the time to start sucking the life out of them for leads to other indictments. There are still bigger fish to fry.

How dumb do you have to be to take selfies in the middle of all that?

I hope you are correct.
I'm impatient.

If ever there was a time to for the DOJ to build a case that is both overwhelming and bulletproof, this is the case. Trump is certainly going to do the same when he's brought to justice.

The testimony of those who have already plea bargained gives the defense a lot of wiggle room. The one thing the prosecution has to avoid is missing their one chance to cut of the head of the snake. Trump is very good at squirming his way out of his own culpability. That can't be allowed to happen.

I understand your angst, but don't forget AG Garland's confirmation and those of his top deputies were held up by the GQP traitors. He has taken over a hollowed-out DOJ where Dotard sycophants were seeded deep in the agency. So he's trying to oversee the largest investigation ever attempted by the DOJ while short handed, trying to root out traitors who I am sure are erecting internal roadblocks, while trying to get staffed up. A battle ship does not turn on a dime. This will all take time, but justice is coming.

They show no remorse and are still promoting a lie and as such are still threatening more violence. They are dangerous to themselves and others and should still be in jail.

Conspiring to overthrow the government. Domestic terrorists. Bail was set too low obviously.
