Seems that the FBI is being weaponized against Congress Members. Collecting cell phone records to look for some way to hang them. I’m pretty sure it will manage to avoid looking at any Democrat records… Dump a few more Republicans out of the Senate and hey, easy running to perpetual Democrat / Chinese rule.
First ran into it in this very good Tim Pool video:
He references this article:
FBI SEIZED CONGRESSIONAL CELLPHONE RECORDS RELATED TO CAPITOL ATTACK
The inclusion of congressional phone data in the FBI investigation raises thorny constitutional questions.
Ken Klippenstein Eric Lichtblau
WITHIN HOURS OF the storming of the Capitol on January 6, the FBI began securing thousands of phone and electronic records connected to people at the scene of the rioting — including some related to members of Congress, raising potentially thorny legal questions.
Using special emergency powers and other measures, the FBI has collected reams of private cellphone data and communications that go beyond the videos that rioters shared widely on social media, according to two sources with knowledge of the collection effort.
In the hours and days after the Capitol riot, the FBI relied in some cases on emergency orders that do not require court authorization in order to quickly secure actual communications from people who were identified at the crime scene. Investigators have also relied on data “dumps” from cellphone towers in the area to provide a map of who was there, allowing them to trace call records — but not content — from the phones.
The FBI is “searching cell towers and phones pinging off cell sites in the area to determine visitors to the Capitol,” a recently retired senior FBI official told The Intercept. The data is also being used to map links between suspects, which include members of Congress, they also said. (Capitol Police are reportedly investigating whether lawmakers helped rioters gain access to the Capitol as several Democrats have alleged they did, though Republican officials deny this.)
The Justice Department has publicly said that its task force includes senior public corruption officials. That involvement “indicates a focus on public officials, i.e. Capitol Police and members of Congress,” the retired FBI official said.
So “they” are “coming for the Congressional opponents”…
Hey, RNC: Any interest in fighting back against demonizing and vote fraud yet?
In a letter sent two days after the riot to 11 major cellphone and internet companies, including AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Apple, and Facebook, Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., urged the companies to “immediately preserve content and associated meta-data connected to” the riot. Some of the telecommunications providers questioned whether Warner has the authority to make such a request, but a number of them appear to have been preserving data from the event anyway because of the large scale of violence, the source said.
Large scale of the violence? 5 people died. Turns out 2 of them in the crowd were natural causes (stroke, heart attack), one was a crowd crush that is an accident that happens in big crowds. ONE was a crowd member shot by a Capitol Employee of some sort. That leaves only one who was ASSERTED was an attack by ‘the crowd’. Supposedly hit on the head with a fire extinguisher. Except now we have him on video that night saying he was fine, his MOTHER saying he was not hit and that it was an unrelated stroke, and retractions of the earlier story.
So in reality what we have is that in about 1/4 to 1 million people, 3 died of health problems (not at all unusual), one was shot by an over zealous (probably security of some sort) agent, and one was a crowd crush accident. That is, in fact, extremely LOW “scale of violence”.
We also know now that many were BLM and ANTIFA folks putting on Trump gear and acting as Agent Provocateurs trying to create a violent image as a False Flag event. We have video of them changing clothes, one arrested and on camera in the event (probably more but only one I personally have seen the film), and eye witness accounts.
Mine being one of them. I *saw* what looked to me like Antifa folks (based on clothes, speech patterns, affect, attitude, age and more – they did not fit the model of the Trump folks all over the rest of the place). I *saw* them trying to gin up participation. I had 2 of them try to get me involved and I said no.
So what is this whole thing? To me it looks exactly like an attempted False Flag that managed to recruit maybe a hundred or so folks out of hundreds of thousands, to commit very LOW GRADE “civil disobedience” at worst, but now being ginned up and painted as the equal of 911 or Pearl Harbor. Just complete bull shit.
How can you have Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Minneapolis and so many more with blocks of buildings on fire, miles of stores looted, mobs in the streets beating people, occupation of blocks of a city and declaration of an Autonomous Zone complete with armed guards and shooting deaths; ALL of that “Peaceful Protest”, but a minor percent of a group breaks some windows and enters a building, that’s the end of civilization as we know it? What?
This is just a fraud, yet again.
I’ve reached the point where ANY Democrat is, first and foremost, to be assumed a corrupt, lying and manipulating or manipulated evil person. How can you assume anything else given their history of actions and lies?
BTW: I am NOT a Republican. They are useless feckless wimps who can’t find a single spine between them and are in some cases complicit in Swamp Dealings anyway. I’m an independent best described as a “middle of the bird” Libertarian leaning traditional American.
FWIW, we have confirmation from another source:
FBI Seized Congressional Cellphone Records

“Within hours of the storming of the Capitol on January 6, the FBI began securing thousands of phone and electronic records connected to people at the scene of the rioting — including some related to members of Congress, raising potentially thorny legal questions,” The Intercept reports.
“Using special emergency powers and other measures, the FBI has collected reams of private cellphone data and communications that go beyond the videos that rioters shared widely on social media.”
So it goes.
Oh, and “Am I worried”? Nope. At most MY cell phone data can confirm exactly what I’ve said here publicly and improve the time stamps. At the Ellipse listening to Trump until the speech ended. Slowly walking toward the Capitol building. Stopping at the car to listen to news and have a snack / warm up. Hearing on the radio that the Troubles at the Capitol were already underway (and had been for about 20 to 30 minutes before Trump finished speaking). Walking on the approved roads to the road in front of the Capitol (from which my published photo was taken), seeing it a mess, and leaving in short order.
Though if they can get the film of the Antifa guy with a bull horn in front of me (I’m the one in the motorcycle suit) and his two handlers (to my left), that would be very helpful in showing Antifa False Flag activists.
Bonus Tim Pool video on DNC Congress Critters trying to ban Fox, Newsmax, America One, etc from Cable News too:
