Violent assault on US Capitol: Telephones strain Trump’s family and environment

Violent storm on US Capitol
Telephones are a strain on Trump’s family and environment

On January 6, demonstrators violently entered the US Congress. Is there anyone in politics who pulled the strings, possibly even Trump himself? According to several sources, there is a direct line to Trump’s son Eric and the White House chief of staff.

Trump’s environment and family were apparently in contact with the organizers of the “Save America” ​​event on January 6th in Washington DC, which subsequently led to the storming of the US Capitol. So-called burner phones are said to have been purchased specifically for communication, i.e. prepaid cell phones that cannot be tracked and are therefore often used temporarily by criminals in order to remain anonymous. this reported the magazine “Rolling Stone” citing several informants.

When Congress officially counted the votes of the electorate on January 6, supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the building. People died, politicians fled, and the incumbent President Trump initially refused to call people to reason. His removal from office for “inciting insurrection” was then rejected by the Senate with a Republican blocking minority.

The media report is so far the potentially most incriminating publication about a possible agreement between Trump’s immediate environment and attackers on the congress building. Kylie Kremer, head of March for Trump, had told a helper in the run-up to the event that he should get three such cell phones, whereby it is “extremely important” that the cell phones are paid for with cash. One was used by herself afterwards and the second by her mother Amy Kremer, who was also one of the organizers, said a member of March for Trump.

March for Trump is a series of events organized by the group “Women for America First”: After the election defeat by Democrat Joe Biden, a bus drove through 20 cities in the country, repeating Trump’s allegations of the allegedly stolen election and berating the political opponent . The president, who was still in office at the time, publicly supported the tour. The tone at the events was often rough. “We’ll solve every problem in this country if every conservative goes out on (national holiday) and shoots a liberal,” said one speaker. “Only a dead democrat is a good democrat,” said another stop.

While it is unclear who exactly received the third phone, three other informants told the US medium that Kremer used these cell phones to communicate with Trump’s campaign team, including Trump’s son Eric Trump, his wife Lara Trump, then White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, and Trump’s advisor Katrina Pierson. “They organized all sorts of things, demonstrations and campaign events. Any conversation with the White House or the Trump family was carried out on these phones,” an informant is quoted as saying.

Bannon, Stone and militias summoned

Half a year after the chaos in the Capitol, the House of Representatives set up a commission of inquiry on January 6, and 35 Republicans also voted in favor. The committee has since examined documents and summoned dozens of people. For the history books it should be recorded who could have been politically responsible for what happened. It is also about possible campaign ammunition to torpedo Trump’s renewed presidential candidacy.

Among those summoned are prominent figures from Trump’s environment, such as his former National Security Advisor Steve Bannon, lawyer Roger Stone and Mark Meadows. It is unclear who will actually testify about this. Bannon, for example, missed his hearing, whereupon the commission threatened him with jail time. The commission has also summoned representatives from the militias “Oath Keepers” and “Proud Boys” who support Trump. Trump’s opponents hope that the trace of violence will lead directly to the ex-president.

“We fight like crazy. And if you don’t fight like crazy, you will have no more land,” Tump said in front of the demonstrators. That quote was one of the key arguments used by the Democrats who accused the president of incitement and wanted him removed from office. Trump’s lawyers countered saying in the same speech, “I know everyone here will soon be running over to the Capitol to peacefully and patriotically make their voices heard.” The place of the speech was about two and a half kilometers from the congress building.
