Protest organizer claims three US Reps helped with planning

Weeks before a mob of President Trump’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol, right-wing activist Ali Alexander told his followers that he was planning something big for Jan. 6.

Alexander, who organized the “Stop the Steal” movement, said he hatched the plan — coinciding with Congress’s vote to certify the electoral college votes — alongside three GOP lawmakers: Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Mo Brooks (Ala.) and Paul A. Gosar (Ariz.), all hard-line Trump supporters.

“We four schemed up of putting maximum pressure on Congress while they were voting,” Alexander said in a since-deleted video on Periscope highlighted by the Project on Government Oversight, an investigative nonprofit. The plan, he said, was to “change the hearts and the minds of Republicans who were in that body, hearing our loud roar from outside.”

Apply sec3 of the 14th amendment to all three - they are disqualified from holding office.

No Person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

Yeah and the days of pretending you “couldn’t have known” will soon be behind us.

The good news is that at least among credible news sources the word “insurrection” is commonly being used, along with Trump’s causation. But it’ll be harder to prove others were complicit. Shouldn’t be but will be.

Not to mention the one QRep who was providing real time intel on Nancy Pelosi's whereabouts. A literal tactical spy in the House.

This guy is such a dirty piece of work, I’m not sure his claims should be believed at first hearing.

Ali Akbar was born in 1984 or 1985. He went by that name until partway through his career as an activist, when he renamed himself Ali Alexander.

Alexander is a convicted felon, stemming from felony property theft and credit card abuse charges in 2007 and 2008.

He identifies as Christian, Black, and Arab.”

Fits in with the other insurrections.
