Following the Money Trail(s), Members of the Jan. 6 Select Committee Are Uncovering a Well Organized and Financed Coup Attempt

When rooting out corruption, it’s best to follow the money. That is precisely what the Jan. 6 Committee is now doing according to reports detailing lawmakers’ highly organized effort to sniff out potential criminality in funding for pro-trump rallies coordinated ahead of the assault on the Capitol.

First reported by CNN, the committee is digging into financial details around Stop the Steal rally organizers and other similar vendors on their radar. In particular, they are rooting out possible campaign finance or election law violations, as well as other financial crimes.

Earlier this month, the investigatory body issued subpoenas to far-right activist and leader of the Stop the Steal movement, Ali Alexander, and Shelby County, Ohio, city councilman Nathan Martin.

According to the committee, Martin was listed as the point of contact on a permit application submitted to the U.S. Capitol Police for a “One Nation Under God” event last December protesting the 2020 election results.

An unnamed source cited in the CNN report suggested the committee is breaking up its work into teams. Some of the committee’s teams track funds specifically tied to rally organizers and other groups connected to the cheeto-in-chief.

The source also explained that additional teams are reviewing how those groups may overlap while other teams are zeroing in on the cheeto-in-chief himself. Those teams are reportedly reviewing how the bigoted-orange-liar may have leaned on legislators to follow his lead in attempting to overturn the election results or how he used his executive authority to pressure his former lapdog Mike Pence and the Justice Department.

A spokesperson for the Jan. 6 Committee has yet to return any comment, even after multiple requests.

So far, fifteen subpoenas have been issued by the committee publicly. The first batch was delivered by the committee to trump administration officials like former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino. Onetime Pentagon chief of staff Kash Patel was also subpoenaed for records and deposition, as was Steve Bannon, who defied the request and was found in contempt of Congress.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi signed off on the contempt referral, after which it was sent to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington. Some of what the committee sought from Bannon were records and details related to the financing behind the rally in D.C. on the morning of Jan. 6. Investigators also want information Bannon might have regarding travel arrangements and hotel accommodations for rally participants.

Eleven other subpoenas were issued in late September to organizers, including Amy Kremer, founder and chairwoman of Women for America First. The group coordinated the rally at the Ellipse, which overflowed with a mixed bag of trump’s supporters, far-right extremists and white nationalists, among others. Kremer’s daughter and co-founder of Women for America First, Kylie Kremer, was also subpoenaed, as were Caroline Wren and Cindy Chafian.

ProPublica reported in January that text messages and memos between Wren and Cindy Chafian, another organizer of the rally at the Ellipse, were heavily involved in the logistics and budgeting for the event. Maggie Mulvaney, the niece of trump’s acting White House chief of staff-turned director of the Office of Management and Budget-turned special envoy for Northern Ireland Mick Mulvaney, was also subpoenaed.

Mulvaney was listed as a “VIP lead” in the permit arranged by Women for America First. She also served as the director of finance operations for the trump campaign.

Megan Powers, of MPowers Consulting LLC, and Hannah Salem, of Salem Strategies LLC, were also listed on permits for the rally. Both of the women were in charge of scheduling and logistics. Lyndon Brentall of RMS Protective Services was also flagged on permit paperwork as an “on-site supervisor” and Justin Caporale and Tim Unes—both of Event Strategies Inc.—have information about project and stage management for the rally sought by the committee.

Katrina Pierson, trump’s campaign spokesperson in 2016, is also under scrutiny by the committee and received a subpoena last month. According to the FEC, Pierson received $10,000 biweekly for her work with the trump campaign from September 2019 to January 2020. Pierson is believed to have been in contact with trump regularly before and on Jan. 6.

Norm Eisen, a legal analyst for CNN, reported that the committee members divvying up the probe and homing in on financial crimes might be among “the most valuable avenues” to directly connecting trump to the planning and coordination of the insurrection at the Capitol.

As the noose tightens, trumpublicans are anxiously anticipating their big wins in the 2022 Mid-term Elections, after which, as the congressional majority they will have a celebratory bonfire to burn the volumes of damning evidence of the January coup collected by the Select Committee. Also to be thrown into that fire, all copies of the U.S. Constitution found in D.C. and nearby communities.

Republicans were invited to join and help direct the investigation, but they refused.
You might want to do a better look at the makeup of the investigative team. Two accepted.
Whether they remained on or not, I'm not entirely positive.

The democrats have no room to whine they appointed far left biased people further it is UNHEARD of for a speaker to refuse to seat the other parties choices.
The only ones whining are the GQP.

“I remember [Georgia Rep.] Marjorie Taylor Greene specifically,” one of the planners reportedly said.

Greene denied meeting with any rally organizers, calling the allegations “ridiculous” and Rolling Stone a “pathetic piece of trash” for publishing them.

“They’re talking about their sources and sources and quoting sources, but not giving names, so that just reminds me of the whole Russian collusion lie, and the type of language that Adam Schiff uses when he’s talking about sources,” she told the Daily Caller.

Then the loony tune said this.

'If you think about what our Declaration of Independence says, it says to overthrow tyrants,” Greene said in defense of the attack. “There is a clear difference between Jan. 6 and the Marxist, Communist revolution, the Antifa, BLM, Democrat ground troops waged on the American people in 2020.'

WTF?

Sure, when Trump's cult attacks the capitol building when congress is in session, you tend to be biased, just a little.
Gym Jordan is Trump's confused little bitch.
Of the House Republicans' five picks, Jim Banks and Jordan were the only two who not only refused to certify the election results, but who also signed onto a brief to the U.S. Supreme Court, asking the justices to help overturn the presidential race.

What's more, Jim Jordan, a controversial Trump sycophant, is on record saying, "I don't know how you can ever convince me that President Trump didn't actually win this thing."

Yeah, no bias there.
And Jim Jordan is absolute right...but you still whine and spin nonsense.

The only one spinning nonsense is Jordan and .....................you.
Gym is a idiot nut job and a traitor.

October 20 2021
House Rules Committee Chairman Jim McGovern (D- Mass.) asked Jordan about interviews he gave over the summer admitting he had spoken with Trump on Jan. 6.

In July, Jordan told Fox News’ Bret Baier that he and Trump had spoken, but changed the subject when asked what they’d discussed. Pressed to elaborate on Spectrum News the following day, Jordan said he believed he had spoken to Trump after the riot but wasn’t sure, and couldn’t recall if they had spoken in the morning. “I’d have to go back,” he said.

And then, in August, Jordan told Politico he had “definitely” spoken to the president more than once that day but couldn’t remember when. He told the site one of those calls was from a safe room during the attack.
“So, my question is: You’ve had 84 days since that interview [on Spectrum News] to go back and check the records. So, when did you speak with the former President on January 6th?” McGovern asked.

“Of course I talked to the president. I’ve been clear about that. I talk to him all the time. This is not about me, Mr. Chairman. I know you want to make it about me,” he said before changing direction to say the focus of the investigation should be on the “lack of security presence” on Jan. 6.
Jordan said he couldn’t remember how many times he’d spoken with Trump.

Once again the demonstration was a legitimate 1st Amendment right of the people to assemble and petition the government. All the permits were sanctioned and there was nothing sinister about it. If it was a coup attempt it pales in comparison to the FBI's use of a foreign agent to obtain a forged and faked dossier which was the basis for the 1st impeachment attempt. It's beyond logic and absolutely laughable to use the word "coup" to describe the Jan 6 incident when a bunch of unarmed mom and pop demonstrators were swept up and ultimately hunted down and prosecuted by the federal government. More like a setup.

No permit allows you to breach police barriers

No permit allows you to attack LEOs

No permit allows you to Break into a government building

No permit allows you to damage government property

No permit allows you to obstruct a legitimate government proceeding

And No permit allows you to commit conspiracy to do the above

She rejected TWO Republicans...who may have been part of this.
She shouldn't have the power to reject ANY choice by the other party to seat THEIR allotted members on a committee.

Yes, it was.
What happened after that wasn't.

Yeah, a setup by morons perpetuated by morons.
The Trump cult was happy to oblige.

Traitors.

Some one actually disagreed with this post, I assume they do not support democracy or our republic since it has NEVER been done before by any party.

Former President Donald Trump 's campaign reported paying over $4.3 million to organizers of the January 6 "Save America" rally held prior to the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, OpenSecrets reported. Questions remain about the extent of the campaign's involvement.

An investigative committee comprised of Democrats who hated Trump and two Republicans who hated Trump, all of whom voted to impeach him.
Clearly......no bias there.
That might be the case but don't forget the facts. That's where the truth lies.
