Revolver.News investigative journalist, Darren Beattie joined Steve Bannon on the War Room on Wednesday to discuss how the 1/6 Commission is now expanding its investigation to include all of the communications records of all the MAGA congressmen and everyone in Trump’s inner circle, including all of their user data from all social media sites, with subpoenas being issued to AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.
Late on the evening of the following day, the January 6 Select Committee announced subpoena depositions and records from Steve Bannon, Mark Meadows, Dan Scavino and Kash Patel.
Beattie has been staying on his investigation into January 6th, which he calls “The highest-stakes, most dangerous and most important story in the country.”
In his previous report, Beattie said the evidence was overwhelming that 1/6 was actually orchestrated by the government saying, “I believe was engineered as an infiltration operation. This false narrative is now the key pretext that our National Security state is using to ram through Patriot Act 2.0, the Domestic War on Terror.”
He said the biggest proof of this were the upwards of 20 unindicted co-conspirators in the 1/6 indictments made against members of the key implicated militia groups, who have not been charged for the same activities — in some cases, more severe activities — as those named alongside them in the indictments. Beattie believes these individuals were not indicted due to grants of immunity, because they are either federal agents or assets.
“Basically, anyone who set foot in DC within a month of 1/6, the Commission, in this expansionist fishing expedition wants all their communications, all their electronics. But there’s one very notable exception to this fishing expedition.
“One fish that seems to elude the net and elude interest, completely. And that happens to be the Founder and Head of the key militia group [the Oathkeepers] that both the Government and the media has branded as the ‘Boogie Man’ associated with the ‘insurrectionist elements’ of 1/6. That’s ‘Person One’ in the charging documents. That person is Stewart Rhodes.
“For all of the Commission’s interest in literally everybody, they’ve expressed zero interest in Rhodes…After 8 months, this head of this main militia, the big Boogie Man has not been indicted, when his own statements and actions have been used by the Government to incriminate and attempt to deny bail to his underlings in the Oathkeepers.
“And not only that, Stewart Rhodes, ‘Person 1’ hasn’t even been subject to a thorough search. As far as we know, the only search the Government has done on him is they took a single cell phone for months after 1/6, which is amazing when you look at the – look at the search they slapped on Rudy Giuliani, for instance…
“Just recently, there was a story of a whole family and they were at a Stop the Steal rally…they had their whole house raided. The Feds seized everything, including the 11-year-old’s tablet – and yet, they’ve only taken a single cell phone from the head of the major militia groups and they did it 4 months after the event, when it would have been easy to destroy any evidence in that period.
“So, again, we ask, ‘Why is the Commission ignoring this key militia leader?'”
This oversight cannot be chalked up to Congressional incompetence, because we know that they’re acutely aware of who Rhodes is. As Beattie points out, Rhodes plays a central role in the theory of the case personally advanced by the head of the January 6 commission, itself, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS).
“Five months before he was tapped as chairman of the Commission, Rep. Thompson filed a lawsuit in his personal capacity, with himself as lead plaintiff, against four parties:
“Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, the Oath Keepers organization, and the Proud Boys organization [in which Stewart Rhodes was named as a defendant]. In his complaint, Thompson alleges an ‘Alley Oop’ theory of January 6. According to this theory, Trump and his agents on the inside conspired with the Oath Keepers, Proud Boys and agents on the outside to incite a crowd to attack the Capitol.”
“Yet now that Thompson is chairman of the January 6 commission—with total subpoena power to investigate Rhodes—suddenly ‘Attn: Stewart Rhodes’ has given way to ‘pay no attention’ at all.
“Could it be that this is because Rhodes, if later discovered to have an undisclosed relationship with a Federal intelligence or law enforcement agency, would demolish Thompson’s entire ‘Alley Oop’ theory, revealing the ‘slam dunk’ to be orchestrated by the Feds themselves?”
