A well placed source, whose position was verified by National Justice, is blowing the whistle on the largest Department of Justice investigation in history.
Federal prosecutors and the FBI are using dirty and unethical tricks to keep January 6th defendants in solitary confinement for an indefinite period of time.
The government’s strategy relies on compelling defense attorneys for jailed January 6th protesters to waive their client’s rights to a speedy trial, which requires that proceedings begin within 70 days of an indictment.
In proceedings, the FBI has claimed that it is “impossible” to provide all the exculpatory evidence, such as surveillance videos from the Capitol, in the time frame demanded by law. So far, this excuse has not been challenged. Defense lawyers are waiving their clients’ rights in order to give the FBI a chance to generate the evidence they need to make, but this is coming at the expense of defendant’s continuing to languish in solitary confinement. There doesn’t appear to be even an estimation for when the feds will fully produce the necessary information.
National Justice was informed that this process is being dragged on in bad faith in order to keep defendants interned. The goal is for them to break and take uncharitable plea bargains. Journalist Michael Tracey recently interviewed Bigo Barnett on the horrors he had been experiencing in his Washington DC jail. The DoJ is desperately afraid of the political problems and publicity problems, including scrutiny from foreign powers the United States is used to lecturing about human rights, that could emerge if all the facts are exposed in a public trial.
Additionally, the source said that plea deals like the one given to Anne Morgan Lloyd, the first person sentenced in Capitol cases, are not going to be offered again. Federal officials were enraged when Lloyd, an Indiana grandmother whose charges were reduced to a misdemeanor in exchange for writing a book report about Schindler’s List, went on Fox News the next day and “downplayed” the incident.
Ultimately, the DoJ’s strategy for dealing with the enormous backlash they are receiving, including an attempt to inspect jail conditions for January 6th defendants by US Congressmen, is to double down on the cruelty.
The source concluded the discussion by pointing out that those pushing the envelope on the case are growing both neurotic and angry that their narrative about the “1/6 coup” is not only failing to catch, but causing them a massive headache. The alternative media’s close coverage of the issue is having a greater impact than meets the eye.
