Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Former senior technical adviser for the January 6 Committee, Denver Riggleman, said the White House switchboard connected a phone call to a Capitol rioter on January 6, 2021. "You get a real 'a-ha' moment when you see that the White House switchboard had connected to a rioter's phone while it's happening," Riggleman told 60 Minutes correspondent Bill Whitaker. "That's a big, pretty big 'a-ha' moment." Riggleman, an ex-military intelligence officer and former Republican congressman from Virginia, oversaw a data-driven operation for the January 6 committee, pursuing phone records and other digital clues tied to the attack on the Capitol. He stopped working for the committee in April. "I only know one end of that call," Riggleman said. "I don't know the White House end, which I believe is more important. But the thing is the American people need to know that there are link connections that need to be explored more."

More from the cited article...

...Riggleman said, "From my perspective...being in counterterrorism. If the White House, even if it's a short call, and it's a connected call, who is actually making that phone call?"

"Is there a simple, innocent explanation for that?" Whitaker asked.

"Was it an accidental call?" Riggleman responded. "When the White House just happened to call numbers that somebody misdialed a rioter that day, on January 6th? Probably not."

The call was uncovered after Riggleman assembled a small team of data miners and analysts for the committee to comb through 20 million lines of data: emails, social media posts, phone records, and texts, to learn who did what leading up to and on January 6th.

"We were able to do things, I think, in a way that had never been done before with millions of lines of data," Riggleman said. "And to actually create a graph that shows how these groups actually intermingled."

Those groups, according to Riggleman, included, "Trump team, Trump family, rally goers, unaffiliated DOJ-charged defendants, Proud Boys and Oath Keepers, and others, which are state legislators, alternate electors, things like that."...

The logical part of my brain is adamant no one would be dumb enough to knowingly call a domestic insurrectionist from the white house land lines.

Then the rest of my brain shows up with memories.

It was Trump wasn't it?

No one else in the white house is that stupid.

Dotard liked the trappings of being POTUS, the feeling of importance he got when having somebody else connect his calls for him. Of course, it was Diaper Donnie; who else would it have been? Now DOJ just has to prove it.

And speaking of "Bunker Bitch" it's telling that der Gropenfuhrer Bone Spurs waddled down to the bunker with his tail between his cheeks when peaceful George Floyd protesters were outside the WH, but wanted to be front and center when the knowingly armed domestic terrorists attacked the Capitol. It's almost like he wasn't POTUS for the whole country, divisive fascist POS, I hope he fries in Christian Hell, or at least half the country gets to piss on his grave. I'd even pay for a round at Bedminster for that opportunity if they planted him next to Ivana.

Easy answer: waterboard the recipient until the truth comes out.

Yeah, this looks pretty bad for old Don. Not that any of his supporters care.

"waterboard the recipient until the truth comes out."

Wouldn't that damage the switchboard?

Ah, never mind. I misread the headline.
