It continues to come crashing down.

Georgia lawyer said he kicked in Pelosi's door, she could've been 'torn into little pieces'
"And get this - the first of us who got upstairs kicked in Nancy Pelosi's office door and pushed down the hall towards her inner sanctum, the mob howling with rage," Calhoun wrote, according to the FBI.

"Crazy Nancy probably would have been torn into little pieces but she was nowhere to be seen."

It's good job they made Facebook albums with their photos of the insurrection, making it very easy to prosecute them.

Yes it’s obviously Pelosi that’s the crazy one in this scenario.

From details of another there also...
After the interview, Pham agreed to hand over his cellphone, which investigators noticed had no photos from Jan. 6, the affidavit states. However, the "Deleted Items" folder contained photos and images of him inside the Capitol building.

Probably more gullible than low intelligence. They believed that they were doing what Trump wanted and so he'd protect them. They didn't need to worry about taking selfies or deleting the evidence because he'd make sure that patriots were not thrown into jail, or at least got a pardon later.

Until they weren't.

I notice private jet flying, estate agent/realtor woman who'd boasted about having loads of money and only needing to work 15 hours a week has tried to solicit funds to pay get legal fees.

Apparently she's not got that much money, it was just bragging and, anyway, it was a friend's jet. So, please send money.

It's amazing reading. On page 12 there's a quote from some moron saying they're all performing a citizen's arrest on the whole congress as they have probable cause of treason in the form of election fraud. It's as if he thinks "probable cause" is a magic spell that lets you do anything. I'm picturing a bunch of Harry Potter cosplayers pointing their wands and chanting "probable cause" and actually expecting doors to fly open.

As well as another saying "This is what we trained for." Does rather support the notion that while some MAGAs may have spontaneously joined in after hearing the tangerine tw.t's speech, this was a planned insurrection.
And remember that if you botch the exit, the carnival of reaction may be coming to a town near you.
