... Newly unearthed footage from Jan. 6, 2021, appears to show a rioter -- a man identified in an NBC News story nearly two years ago -- firing a gun into the air outside the Capitol during the attack.

Online sleuths who have aided in hundreds of Jan. 6 prosecutions say he is the same man they identified to the FBI who is currently individual No. 200 on the bureau's Capitol Violence page, which he first appeared on three years ago. Videos and photographs from the Capitol on Jan. 6 showed him with what appears to be a gun in his waistband.

As NBC News previously reported, that man, John Emanuel Banuelos, told Salt Lake City police that he was at the Capitol and had been captured on film with a gun. "I was in the D.C. riots," he told the investigators, according to a police transcript. "I'm the one in the video with the gun right here." ...

One wonders what might happen if and when Trump is sent to federal prison...will his cult allow that to happen?
And, of course, if he wins again, to stay out of jail, what the hell will his inauguration look like? It would be most likely the time and place of the largest public demonstration of unity...against Trump.

Rioters in service of insurrection. At least some of them. Others were para-militaries in service of insurrection.

The cops invited them there tourists into the Capitol and served them tea and biscuits while they shared some legitimate political discourse and a few legitimate bullets and some legitimate bear spray and some legitimate tasers.

From what I've seen, they were referred to as "rioters" since J6. The "insurrectionists" reference started when more evidence started to become available.

imo, "insurrectionists" refers to their J6 goal, while "rioters" refers to how they wanted to attain that goal.

Do you not believe him?
"I was in the D.C. riots."
"I'm the one in the video with the gun right here."

How are we getting "new footage" 3 years after the fact?

12. How much DC footage has ever been released at all from 9/11? No doubt they had that plane coming in from all different angles. Not that it would have aided in any prosecution ... but I'd like to see it. However, that would reveal where surveillance cameras are.

Why do new people continue to get arrested? Because the law enforcement bodies are still reviewing the even more massive amounts of video evidence available and tracking have down leads. They're working in shifts.

Not that hard.

*tracking down leads.

Sucks to mangle the punchline. No doubt it'll happen again.

45,000 hours of footage is a lot of footage.

It would take you 1875 days watching it 24 hours a day 7 days a week to watch it all.

But you didn't even watch the weeks J6 coverage in Congress so I am betting most of it is new to You.

The Trump cult will do what it has been instructed to do.

Trump threatens 'potential death & destruction' if he's indicted in New York (March 2023)

... Trump said that there's a "potential" for "death & destruction" if he's charged by NY prosecutors.

It's the third time Trump has alluded to the possibility of political unrest and violence in the last several days.

Earlier this week, he employed an anti-Semitic trope against the Manhattan DA and mocked calls for his supporters to stay "peaceful." ...
