A well placed source, whose position was verified by National Justice, is blowing the whistle on the largest Department of Justice investigation in history.

Federal prosecutors and the FBI are using dirty and unethical tricks to keep January 6th defendants in solitary confinement for an indefinite period of time.

The government’s strategy relies on compelling defense attorneys for jailed January 6th protesters to waive their client’s rights to a speedy trial, which requires that proceedings begin within 70 days of an indictment.

In proceedings, the FBI has claimed that it is “impossible” to provide all the exculpatory evidence, such as surveillance videos from the Capitol, in the time frame demanded by law. So far, this excuse has not been challenged. Defense lawyers are waiving their clients’ rights in order to give the FBI a chance to generate the evidence they need to make, but this is coming at the expense of defendant’s continuing to languish in solitary confinement. There doesn’t appear to be even an estimation for when the feds will fully produce the necessary information.

National Justice was informed that this process is being dragged on in bad faith in order to keep defendants interned. The goal is for them to break and take uncharitable plea bargains. Journalist Michael Tracey recently interviewed Bigo Barnett on the horrors he had been experiencing in his Washington DC jail. The DoJ is desperately afraid of the political problems and publicity problems, including scrutiny from foreign powers the United States is used to lecturing about human rights, that could emerge if all the facts are exposed in a public trial.

Additionally, the source said that plea deals like the one given to Anne Morgan Lloyd, the first person sentenced in Capitol cases, are not going to be offered again. Federal officials were enraged when Lloyd, an Indiana grandmother whose charges were reduced to a misdemeanor in exchange for writing a book report about Schindler’s List, went on Fox News the next day and “downplayed” the incident.

Ultimately, the DoJ’s strategy for dealing with the enormous backlash they are receiving, including an attempt to inspect jail conditions for January 6th defendants by US Congressmen, is to double down on the cruelty.

The source concluded the discussion by pointing out that those pushing the envelope on the case are growing both neurotic and angry that their narrative about the “1/6 coup” is not only failing to catch, but causing them a massive headache. The alternative media’s close coverage of the issue is having a greater impact than meets the eye.

    It started with “foreign terrorists” under Bush Jr, then spread to “foreign-born spies” like Maria Butina when the swamp was attacking Trump, and now has quite logically reached heritage US citizens who disagree with the agenda.

    Just like what started as self-perpetuating mechanisms to take over foreign societies and milk them, while treating the native like subhuman scum to be “pacified”, slowly turned on the host society.

    Very valuable work, Mr. Striker!

    DO NOT PLEAD GUILTY AND DO NOT WAIVE ANY RIGHTS—JAN 6. PROSECUTIONS OF TOURISTS ARE ILLEGAL, ILLEGAL, ILLEGAL……..JUST TERRORISM

    From looking at the evidence, DOJ has no case and Jan. 6 prosecution of tourists are just a scam by the DOJ to terrorize the tourists. I see no probable cause to prosecute these tourists. Brazenly illegal and violation of the RPC.

    If my relatives were being prosecuted like this, I would recommend to them to not plead guilty, do not waive any rights to a speed trial, etc. and demand full discovery, demand all videos, etc.

    The DOJ is scared of public trials, and knows that most of the poor tourists they are framing will be set free by the juries, so they are resorting to these dirty tricks.

    Like the NYT once told black criminals—demand a full trial, clog the system.

  3. Ignoring habeas corpus n due process are clear violations of domestic n international law. Where is the Supreme Court in all this?

    The SCOTUS is corrupt…they are every bit as much a part of the Deep State as the rest of the government. Never forget: The SCOTUS has passed down egregious decisions that abridge the First Amendment and show contempt for the concept of representative democracy. Buckley v. Valeo, 424 U.S. 1976 and exacerbated by continuing stupid SCOTUS decisions First National Bank of Boston v. Bellotti, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission.
    These decisions have codified that money is free speech thereby giving entities of wealth and power total influence in elections.

    They have biased terrible Federal “judges” overseeing these cases — Leftist Activists in Robes.

    The appointed Public Defenders seem also to be Leftist Activists. There is zero chance for any non-Leftist to get a fair trial in DC as the Roger Stone trial proved.

    I talked with a decent State Court Judge the other day–he could not believe how low the Federal Judiciary has sunk–none of what is being done would have been tolerated pre-Obama–you would have been removed from the Bench. The USA has descended to the level of a putrid joke — stinking Bolsheviks “run” the country and the Courts.

  7. BLM protestors in Iowa who demonstrated at the State Capitol in 2020 have been paid compensation for their treatment at the hands of police.

    “An Iowa panel voted Monday to settle a lawsuit and pay five protesters who supported the Black Lives Matter movement and alleged constitutional rights violations when they were banned from the state Capitol grounds.

    “The State Appeal Board approved a recommendation by state lawyers to pay Jalesha Johnson, Louise Bequeaith, Haley Jo Dikkers, Brad Penna and Brandi Ramus \$5,000 each and their attorney \$45,000.

    “The five were arrested July 1, 2020, when a scuffle broke out with police officers at the Capitol. After the arrests, the Iowa State Patrol, which provides security at the Capitol, told the five protesters that legislative leaders ordered them banned from the grounds.

    “The patrol told them that if they returned to the state property around the building, they would be charged with trespassing. Some were banned for six months and others for a year.

    “The American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa filed a lawsuit, saying the ban blocks the individuals’ fundamental constitutional rights of free speech, assembly, right to petition their government, their fundamental freedom of movement and due process.

    “U.S. District Court Judge Rebecca Goodgame Ebinger issued an order in December that prevented enforcement of the ban, concluding it likely violated the protesters’ rights.”

    I LOL’d reading that, but then considered how many ‘law’ grifters worship/parrot such crap. Whores.

    A disastrous decision. It reinforced the monopolies that have come to control every aspect of American life. SCOTUS is out to lunch. If a President doesn’t have standing to challenge wholesale fraud that stole a national election, what rights remain to the average joe? The world looks on in amazement at the collapse of the Constitutional system in America.

    What’s clear is that the judiciary is corrupt, winning or losing depends entirely on which party owns the judge. Except on any matter that really affects the public the outcome is forordained because the Uniparty owns them all.

    Both factions are quick to use “their” judges to cancel any election that might upset the elites’ apple cart, n SCOTUS is quick to confirm. It’s only the left hand of the elite shadow boxing with the right hand. Democracy in this country is a stinking corpse.

    Trump’s words matter. His cult of personality is as mindless as any Bushie, Clintonista or Obama Maniac.

    I know that most had good motives. But Trump hung them out and basically caused this with his words. The mindless don’t need much prodding.

    Of course, Striker hits the nail squarely as usual. Even mindless sycophants should be treated fairly, not just that they are Drumpfters. But the glaringly obvious double standard being displayed will be their downfall… eventually.

    Exactly correct. Those decisions I listed most likely are the biggest gift given to those of wealth and power, the Deep State, in the history of U. S. history. This brings us to the current insuperable plutocratic oligarchy existence.

    This country as it once existed…is no more.

    The people involved at the Capitol didn’t attend Trump’s speech. What happened at the Capital was another FBI sting. How is it that there were so many Trump haters at the hallway doors where Ashley Babbitt was allegedly shot?

    Regulating money used to enable speech is regulating speech. You’re no friend of liberty.

    Babbitt was clearly committed to her cause, as her social media history shows. On January 5th she flew across the country from her home in San Diego to Washington D.C. to take part in the #StopTheSteal rally.

    She listened to President Trump make his speech, and was evidently enthusiastic to be part of the movement, beaming as she described “a sea of nothing but red, white and blue, patriots and Trump. And it was amazing, you could see the president talk,” in this video obtained by TMZ.

    Babbitt, like so many others, walked from the site of Trump’s speech down the inaugural path to the Capitol building, describing the group as a “mob”. There, she joined the people who had already broken through the first lines of woefully underprepared Capitol police, and who would eventually break into the Capitol itself through a door on the vast building’s North-West side.

  18. I cannot find the link, and it may even be here at Unz. It was an account of someone who attended Trump’s speech, stood at the back, and took a cab to the Capitol. He reported that the violence had already started. He did admit that there were small numbers of people left before Trump had finished speaking. There were also videos taken of 6 police escorted buses arriving at the capital with “Trump supporters” getting off them and going directly to the Capital.
    Aside from Bellingcat being a known intelligence mouthpiece, there is much about the Babbitt narrative that doesn’t ring true, including how John Sullivan, aka Jayden X, and another “activist” Zachary Jordan Alam, who broke the window, were at the front of the “Trump supporters”. Sullivan filmed Babbitt’s bloodless “execution”. My guess is she’s not dead and was in on it.
