Republicans launched a new conspiracy based off J6 footage claiming an insurrectionist was holding an FBI badge & must be an agent.— MeidasTouch (@MeidasTouch) November 19, 2023
It was a vape and he was sentenced to more than 4 years in prison.
These lies are sickening. Story… https://t.co/wd14r0qdOj
A lot of Republicans having read the community notes now understand they have been led astray, but Mike Lee, US Senator and former law clerk for Sam Alito, wants to hold on to the fantasy that an FBI "op" instigated the 1/6 melee, and that an undercover fed was for some reason caught flashing his actual badge on camera. In a set-up to compromise Trump supporters to make it look like they stormed the Capitol and beat up cops and whatnot which they did, but to somehow make it look worse for reasons?
That's fucking asinine. There was no need for an op: every damn extremely online human associated with politics knew what was up that day. All antifa humans knew they were not going there because the headbreakers were coming out in force. MAGAs were being drawn like moths. And actual "cops" seemed to have little clue. This all would make a lot of sense unless your guilty little soul needed a retcon for some reason.
Like actually being one of the people who wanted to overturn the election. I don't know why the boy needs to be so shy about it, after Trump misdialed Mike trying to reach Tommy Taterhead. He considered Sidney Powell a "straight shooter".
Is Mike Lee saying he's still going around looking for the "REAL CULPRITS"?
Somehow, I'm not buying it. And I think Mike Lee is just playing at being this big of a meathead himself.
