...Badalian and Rodriguez reportedly created a group chat on the Telegram app, called "Patriots 45 MAGA Gang," that prosecutors allege was used as a platform to "advocate violence against certain groups and individuals" who "supported" the results of the 2020 presidential election. The two men in late 2020 also attended pro-Trump and anti-coronavirus mask mandate rallies in Southern California, including in Huntington Beach and Beverly Hills, according to the indictment. ...

Prosecutors allege that Badalian, Rodriguez and a third defendant " whose name is currently redacted in court documents " encouraged others to attend the Jan. 6 "Stop the Steal" rally that proceeded the riot and collected "weapons and tactical gear" that included "a taser, pepper spray, a baseball bat, gas masks and walkie talkies."

In one "Patriots 45" chat message cited in the indictment, Badalian allegedly wrote "we need to violently remove traitors and if they are in key position rapidly replace them with able-bodied patriots."...

It appears that, contrary to what some have asserted here, there was prior planning for January 6.

They called themselves the gang so they should probably charged under the RICO Act as well.

"we need to violently remove traitors and if they are in key position rapidly replace them with able-bodied patriots."...

Yeah.. but when they said "violently" they didn't really mean with violence.

And when Trumpy said, "if you don't fight like hell you're not going to have a country anymore" they didn't mean to literally "fight like hell".

And when Trumpy said we can't take it anymore and we won't concede the election" didn't really mean he would never concede the election.

And when they said March to the capital and take back your country they didn't really mean TAKE back your country.

And when he said "everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard."

Trumpy didn't really mean "peacefully".
