I mean, why else would they wipe the entire service's cell phone system.

That and basic maintenance.

Seditious conspiracy... So.. yeah. Can we have a public trial and hanging anytime soon?

I wouldn't doubt he'd lie about that to his followers either though

Former Oath Keeper testifies that Stewart Rhodes informed him that he was in contact with a Secret Service agent.


Seems like a good day to watch this again:

Uh, this. Someone got implicated and the head of the SS (and yeah, I'm using the initials "SS" and don't care if that offends someone) said, "Oh shiat, we need to wipe all the things so the woke mob doesn't come after us."
 
2022-10-06 1:34:21 PM  
It's impressive we had an active attack and blatant conspiracy and we're like "Guess I'll head in to the office Monday"
 
2022-10-06 1:34:31 PM  
I thought they were supposed to be in contact with people threatening violence against the government--

oh wait.

No, it's an election century.

Could you imagine feeding Trump that many phones? The plumbing would never recover.
 
2022-10-06 1:36:02 PM  
I think this is the final straw that will nail shut Trump's coffin. What's that? A straw is not the same as a hammer? Well, we don't care. It's Straw Time!
 
2022-10-06 1:36:49 PM  
Those groups actively recruited military, police, etc.  The idea that Secret Service wouldn't be welcomed would be ridiculous.

However the idea that someone in the Secret Service felt it was OK to join is a significant problem.
 
2022-10-06 1:37:48 PM  
Color me shocked the USSS has been hijacked by fascists.

So every single time there's a coordinated effort by fascists in the Republican party to usurp the election process, you want to make a big deal about it? And I suppose you expect real Americans to pay for it? Typical.

"Former Oath Keeper testifies..."  If someone didn't know about the Oath Keeper organization, they'd probably be like "So they used to tell the truth, but now they don't?  Why on Earth are you letting them testify?"
 
2022-10-06 1:45:43 PM  
Don't worry, no matter how bad you think things were, they were somehow much worse. Probably more than a single collaborator in the SS. Sorry, USSS.

Never forget that the Secret Service's initials are "SS" for a reason.

Unfortunately, he didn't. If he had, Pence would have etched himself into history as a true patriot if he had gotten in that car and been killed for his troubles. His sycophancy would have been all but forgotten and his murder would, I'm certain, have jolted the rest of the GQP out of their hypocritical stupor and cultish behavior to TFG.

Sooner or later we will have enough evidence to convict trump and all the traitors who tried to usurp our govt and overthrow a legal election to convict them in the highest court of public opinion! Courts that might provide consequences not so much
 
2022-10-06 1:54:44 PM  
Why is the Andrew Giuliani connection not just it's own story and instead just thrown in the middle of a news tweet?

farks sake Twitter was a mistake.

Myrdinn: I mean, why else would they wipe the entire service's cell phone system.

Here's a nagging question though--shouldn't the powers that be have Rhodes' phone records already?  Unless he was dialing the all-purpose SS switchboard, they should know by now whose phone he was dialing or messaging regardless of the SS records.  Might not be enough for "evidence" for some legal or technical reason, but I gotta imagine that the investigators know this.

That's how civil wars work.

I had a friend in Beirut whose car got exploded at the supermarket while she was shopping. Had to take a cab home.
 
2022-10-06 2:02:18 PM  
Well that certainly explains a few things. No wonder they tried to wipe their entire cell phone network.

What amazes me is that these are people in intimate, daily contact with Trump.  They can't have any illusions that he's some sort of 6'8" ripped demigod with Einstein level intelligence.  They would have seen him as he is- a fat, confused old man who was watching TV every day rather than governing.

And they still thought overthrowing American government for him was a good idea
 
2022-10-06 2:05:00 PM  
Yeah, I'd wait to see the evidence of this one. These guys claim to have all sorts of inside contacts. Half of them use stolen valor like it's an American Express card. Just like TFG, never any actual proof. Just claims and "People are saying".

They attempted to erase the evidence, which is itself really damning.

Sometimes the symbol of a benevolent businessman who ascended to god emperor is more important than the truth.

Which is why trying to erase evidence is extra stupid.  You cover up something and any patriot LARPer can say it was your conspiring to assassinate a vice president.

I guess we'll find out if the Oaf Keepers think deleting a text actually erases it.

Maybe. But Rhoades has the background to have old buddies in SS. Or at least sympathizers

I mean, if the last few years are anything to go by, they could've succeeded and executed government officials on live TV (and no way would the guys in the studio cut away, think of the ratings) and installed a full on Junta, with skirmishes between military units of different loyalties and a complete breakdown of the systems that keep the country running, and you would STILL get word from your boss telling you that you're expected in on Monday morning.

9 to 5 commute takes you past a couple burning tank husks and a checkpoint? That's a YOU problem.

I mean, the stories coming out of Amazon Warehouses are exactly that. It just surprises me how much people are willing to put up with.  All these "I'm not a sheep! I'm a lion! I'm a shark!" types, and then they go tuck their head for their overlord's whips.
