Capitol rioters communicated using military hand signals, law enforcement official says

Capitol rioters communicated using military hand signals, law enforcement official says

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbsnews.com/amp/news/capitol-rioters-communicated-using-military-hand-signals-a-law-enforcement-official-says/

A Washington D.C. police officer witnessed rioters using military-style hand signals to communicate inside the Capitol building during the breach on January 6, a law enforcement official tells CBS News.

The identification of individuals using military, small unit tactics is among the "highest priorities" for a Sedition Task Force being run by the D.C. U.S. Attorney's office.
The apparent use of "small unit tactics," trained to military and law enforcement, drew immediate scrutiny from investigators. These tactics were witnessed both outside and inside the Capitol Building, CBS News has learned.


Federal investigators are reviewing images that appeared on social media, as well as thousands of hours of video from closed circuit cameras positioned outside the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, the Republican National Committee, the Democratic National Committee, the Capitol campus and police body cameras.

1. Yup. It was apparent early on that there were a lot of police and military in that mob.

Shameful.

2. Sounds like Mike Flynn earned his pardon!

He's got mercenaries around the world doing this same shit.
As does Eric Prince.

3. Yup. Flynn spoke at the 1/6 rally, helping incite those mouthbreathers.

"We stand at a crucible moment in United States history," Flynn told the mostly maskless crowd. "This country is awake now."

5. He's probably back in Turkey by now.

12:00 noon on Jan 20th there better be MPs dragging DJ Trump in cuffs & shackles.

12. I wasn't aware how many military white-nationalists

had recruited until I read an article on it. Makes sense. We abandon our ptsd vets and they are ripe for the picking, a valuable trained asset for the extreme radical right.

I want to hear charges of Treason.
No dancing around the definition either. It is Treason.

7. Gotta love this.. the trump Seditious Terrorist Attack

was Well Documented!

Federal investigators are reviewing images that appeared on social media, as well as thousands of hours of video from closed circuit cameras positioned outside the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, the Republican National Committee, the Democratic National Committee, the Capitol campus and police body cameras.

8. How much preplanning went into the Trump supporters attack on the Capitol?

Well, we had fire, police, & sheriff department people from NYC, Philadelphia, New Hampshire, OH,
Arizona, Seattle, and other places and active duty military from N.C. taking part in the coup so what
is gonna happen to 'em?

BTW if these are D.C. charges Trump can't pardon 'em right?

9. Even if they are federal charges, it seems

like a valid challenge to a pardon could be made since Trump is himself involved in the crime and being investigated for his part in it.

10. the vid of them forming a line, hands on each other's shoulders,

and going to the head of the line jumped out at me.

this was all very well planned. if not for the dc gun ban, this would have turned out very differently.
