January 5 Meeting at Trump International Hotel Could Hold the Key to the January 6 Insurrection

January 5 Meeting at Trump International Hotel Could Hold the Key to the January 6 Insurrection
Seth Abramson

"Well after dark on January 5, 2021—just 15 hours before an insurrection against the United States government incited by the President of the United States—Nebraska Republican Charles W. Herbster, at the time the National Chairman of the Agriculture and Rural Advisory Committee for the Trump administration, attended a private meeting of Trump family members, Trump administration officials, Trump campaign advisers, January 6 organizers, and at least one member of the United States Senate at Trump International Hotel in Washington."
"In attendance at the large and only recently uncovered meeting, conducted “in the private residence of the President” at his hotel, were, according to Herbster’s account, the following individuals (Note: Donald Trump’s presence at the meeting, either in person or via speakerphone, as yet remains unclear, so his name is temporarily absent from this listing):

Donald Trump Jr., eldest son of the president

Eric Trump, second-eldest son of the president

Michael Flynn, former National Security Advisor to the president

Peter Navarro, Assistant to the President, Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, and National Defense Production Act Policy Coordinator

Corey Lewandowski, 2016 Trump campaign manager

David Bossie, 2016 Trump deputy campaign manager

Adam Piper, executive director of the Republican Attorneys General Association

Tommy Tuberville, United States senator from the State of Alabama

According to research by political strategist and regular CNN, MSNBC, The Hill, CBS, and Fox News contributor Cheri Jacobus, Txtwire CEO Daniel Beck claims he was at the January 5 meeting also, and that additional attendees at the gathering included the following three people:

Rudy Giuliani, personal attorney to the President of the United States

Kimberly Guilfoyle, girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr.

Michael Lindell, Trump donor and MyPillow CEO

"In a Facebook post, Beck claims that there were “fifteen of us [who] spent the evening [January 5]” at Trump International Hotel in DC, a statement that tracks with the nine attendees listed by Herbster, the additional three referenced by Beck himself, and a photograph Beck took on January 5 in which he appears outside the hotel with an unidentified woman and three unidentified men, two wearing red “Make America Great Again” caps:

Guilfoyle’s presence at the meeting is critical given that Stop the Steal coordinator Ali Alexander claims he received a call from Guilfoyle during the evening of January 5—when she would have been with Trump’s family and advisers at Trump International. As for Tuberville, he now claims, contrary to the statements of Herbster and Beck, that he was never at the Trump International Hotel on January 5."

14. Very big. Lewandowski was civilian appointee at Pentagon, group that BLOCKED NG troops


DC National Guard was hobbled by those civilian appointees / Chris Miller acting Secretary of Defense. The Guard would normally have been able to roll in response to a request, by the command of the commander.

But the tRump appointees explicitly took that authority away from him in the days just before the Insurrection.

Then they were slow to release the Guard. Multiple requests were ignored, until I think it was the Vice President who authorized them. But the party line is that tRump finally authorized them, in which case the question is why was he so slow? We know he was watching coverage.

16. He didn't send in the national guard til he knew it was a failure

Somehow he thought that his army of rednecks and QAnons would be successful in taking hostages or something, and once he realized he lost he tried to distance himself from it. They watched with glee as those folks streamed into the Capitol, any reasonable president would have immediately been on the horn sending in cavalry.

4. Was Rudy G. talking code when he called Tommy T.

about the additional information that was going to be available so long as the vote was delayed or is Tuberville that stupid? I mean the guy has already demonstrated he is one of the many stupid Republican Senators. The fact he was new to Washington also made him exploitable.

Have we ever got that earthshaking information from Rudy G. that would have justified challenging ten states? That seems like a really good question to ask him under oath.

I don't wish to make too much joshing around a serious topic, though.

6. So casual dress shock troops were a ruse to hide command and control??

Big things don't happen without reason, there has rarely if at all been a spontaneous rabble to storm any institution in America, let along the U.S. Congress.

This whole thing begins to smack of an operation more than a protest gone wild.

19. It stank with organized conspiracy as events unfolded on 6th and after


We very quickly learned that the Guard had been blocked.

Bobert's tweet.

Organized tours.

Lots of warnings before the 6th coming from people scanning Hard Right chatter.

... and more.

8. Tuberville and others involved shouldn't be allowed to vote in impeachment trial unless they testify

under oath that they were not involved in any way, no matter how small. If they lie, throw the book at them.

This is just crazy. Participants in the Insurrection are allowed to vote in a Trial to convict their Leader.

Pres Clinton was impeached for perjury, not sexual misconduct. Any lying Senators, Representatives or other government officials should face the same charges if they lie under oath.

24. 👆 This.

Anyone under credible suspicion of being involved must testify. Co-conspirators and those proven to lie about their involvement or others' involvement have no business being allowed to vote. That would give them opportunity to clear themselves at the same time and it just won't work.

20. To the tune of about 70%, Americans are already shocked & dismayed by the violent attack, but


... you are right, when more is uncovered, that percentage will only go higher.

The FBI seems to be particularly disgusted with the insurrectionists and is hunting them down vigorously. Starting with all the low level criminals. I think they will work it up chains of connections with grim determination.

I'm sure I'm not alone in that. LOL A well-placed "47%" cell phone, carelessly left in "Record" mode wouldn't have been unwelcome.

Time will tell. Meanwhile seems the media should at least make mention of this.
