“opposed by most Republicans” Who’d a thunk?
You know who else was sentenced to prison for an attempted insurrection?
AK State Rep David Eastman, proud lifetime Oathkeeper and January 6 DC tourist, had the initial outcome of the challenge to his eligibility to serve per the AK State Constitution > it is doubtful. Good first step but full trial isn’t until December.

David Eastman is likely ineligible for public office but ordered that he remain on the state’s Nov. 8 election ballots, pending the result of a trial in December: https://t.co/L7Ut9ZqHoA #akleg #akelect https://t.co/lMxG8XvhcX” / Twitter

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.”
Nice a-ha you got there, hope it turns into a gotcha.
I thought that name sounded familiar.
In 2020, Riggleman released a book titled Bigfoot… It’s Complicated, and described himself as a “Bigfoot scholar.” Despite that, he does not believe in the creature’s existence.
Making VA look good again…
And I guess when it comes to breaking laws, confusion is no better an excuse than ignorance.
Because storming the White House would somehow be less of a crime than storming the capitol?

Very confusing. Trump still lived in the whitehouse at the time.
Will be an interesting data point: recidivism rates of a pool of mostly well-off, mostly white people who commited a specific crime.
He thought he was part of a rescue mission.
Jan 6 grand jury, rather than the fake electors grand jury, I think. (Is there a documents grand jury yet?)
