The indictment creates, at the minimum, a serious appearance of a double standard and a miscarriage of justice—an impression that is only strengthened by allegations that a Biden Justice Department lawyer “inappropriately sought to pressure” a Trump-affiliated lawyer with the prospect of a judgeship." At WaEx, Biden injects partisanship into the National Counterintelligence Center. More partisanship? Capt. Ed replies "One wonders what kind of counterintel operations will get priority under a partisan player like Casey.

Vicky Taft at PJM reports Leaked Video Shows D.C. Cops Were 'Rioters' and Instigators at J-6 Protest

A leaked video shows that at least one Washington, D.C., cop—and likely more—acted on January 6 as apparent agent provocateurs, dressing as protesters outside the Capitol Building and urging protesters toward the iconic building. See the video below.

Congressman Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.) says the authenticated GoPro video raises the question of why police officers, who were identified as intelligence officers, were working to stir up the crowd of protesters instead of working to stop an assault on the Capitol.

At one point in the video, the unidentified police officer equipped with the camera said to another that he thought the idea was to get people inside the Capitol Building and trap them inside. The observation by the undercover officer leads one to conclude that there was intelligence about a plan to attack the Capitol, and the apparent response by the police was to let them do it and take pictures.

When another officer on the video saw people climbing the scaffolding, he told the officer with the GoPro, “That’s dangerous. Somebody’s going to get shot.” A third officer said, “They’re not going to shoot anybody.” Yet, they encouraged and participated in the dangerous activity.

As the group of officers worked their way through the crowd and to the scaffolding, they joined in with the protesters’ chants, “Whose house? Our house!”

Loudermilk told the “Just the News, No Noise TV” show, “We know that it is one of their officers and at one point he is encouraging, and it appears he’s encouraging. He’s definitely helping people climb the scaffolding, and he’s telling them ‘go, go, go.'”

PJM's Cathy Salgado is aghast that  CIA and FBI Celebrate Pride Month but Saw Catholics, J6 as Domestic Terrorists.

And off topic and just for the FNJRA, Stacy McCain, Right-Wing Trump Supporter Charged in Murder of Black Transgender Woman

As everyone knows, transphobic racist Republicans are constantly terrorizing LGBTQ people of color in cities like Atlanta:

Atlanta police on high alert after 2 Black trans women shot to death a week apart

April 21, 2023
ATLANTA — Police are working to determine if the murders of two Black transgender metro Atlanta women a week apart are hate crimes. 
Accused murderer Darius Mills, 31

Friends and family shared photos of Koko Williams and Ashley Burton, who were both shot and killed earlier this month.

Williams, 35, was shot to death on MLK on Tuesday night. . . .

Koko’s murder marks the second in just a week involving Black transgender women.

"This guy was clearly a right-wing Republican, just like those guys in MAGA hats who attacked Jussie Smollett in Chicago."
