Closer: New January 6th Boebert Revelations Make Perfect Sense

Rep. Lauren Boebert at the January 6th “Stop the Steal” rally.

Sunday night, Rolling Stone’s Hunter Walker shook up national political news with a new report alleging many more meetings between organizers of the January 6th protest that devolved into violent insurgency at the U.S. Capitol and far-right members of Congress–including Colorado’s newly sworn-in Rep. Lauren Boebert–than have previously been disclosed:

As the House investigation into the Jan. 6 attack heats up, some of the planners of the pro-Trump rallies that took place in Washington, D.C., have begun communicating with congressional investigators and sharing new information about what happened when the former president’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol. Two of these people have spoken to Rolling Stone extensively in recent weeks and detailed explosive allegations that multiple members of Congress were intimately involved in planning both Trump’s efforts to overturn his election loss and the Jan. 6 events that turned violent…

These two sources also helped plan a series of demonstrations that took place in multiple states around the country in the weeks between the election and the storming of the Capitol. According to these sources, multiple people associated with the March for Trump and Stop the Steal events that took place during this period communicated with members of Congress throughout this process.

Along with Greene, the conspiratorial pro-Trump Republican from Georgia who took office earlier this year, the pair both say the members who participated in these conversations or had top staffers join in included Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.), Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.), and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas).

“We would talk to Boebert’s team, Cawthorn’s team, Gosar’s team like back to back to back to back,” says the organizer. [Pols emphasis]

Ernest Luning of the Colorado Springs Gazette’s political blog featured Rep. Lauren Boebert’s carefully-worded response, in which she denies any role “in the planning or execution of any event that took place at the Capitol or anywhere in Washington, DC on January 6th”–but not the specific allegation made in this story that Boebert was in contact with organizers of the January 6th protest:

“Let me be clear,” said Boebert in a statement released Monday afternoon. “I had no role in the planning or execution of any event that took place at the Capitol or anywhere in Washington, DC on January 6th. With the help of my staff, I accepted an invitation to speak at one event but ultimately I did not speak at any events on January 6th. Once again, the media is acting as a messaging tool for the radical left.”

Boebert was one of several Republican lawmakers who were scheduled to speak at a rally on the Ellipse, across from the White House, on the morning of Jan. 6, but the event ran long and she didn’t speak…

“Now, grasping at straws, Rolling Stone is using anonymous sources and shoddy reporting to attack me,” Boebert said.

Given the constant promotion by Boebert leading up to the riot on January 6th, which the timeline shows took place while John Eastman was formulating the last-ditch plan to hand the election to Trump in the final certification process, there’s little reason to doubt she was involved in discussions with organizers of the event. Whether or not Boebert was personally involved in the logistical planning for the protest is less important because the hard work of planning really wasn’t her role. Her role was to promote the event, which she did on the morning of January 6th with her now-infamous “Today is 1776” Tweet.

Between the highly questionable lack of security at the U.S. Capitol compared to racial justice protests the summer before, the violent rhetoric employed by Republicans (including Boebert) leading up to the January 6th insurrection, and most importantly the attempt by Trump’s legal team to exploit the delay caused by the storming of the Capitol to further delay the certification of Joe Biden’s victory, there is a great deal of evidence to suggest that the violence was a deliberate part of the plan. Donald Trump himself told the nation “remember this day forever” while the rioters rampaged through the building.

As the violence inside the U.S. Capitol horrified the nation and Pence refused to carry out Eastman’s instructions for throwing out enough electoral votes to swing the election, Trump’s unprecedented bloody coup attempt failed. What would have happened had Mike Pence gone along with Eastman’s plan? What would Lauren Boebert say about the violence on January 6th had it achieved its objective? “Victory has a thousand fathers,” as the old saying goes, “but defeat is an orphan.”

Put another way: “if it prospers, none dare call it treason.”

Treason didn’t prosper on January 6th, thank goodness, and we’re free to call it what it is.

    Call it treason.

    The GOP is trying to call it a sightseeing tour.

  2. MartinMark says:

    I heard that Rep. Gaetz was initially invited, but when he heard there wouldn't be any teen hookers involved, he turned it down.

  3. Voyageuses says:

    If enough of these traitors give "carefully worded" statements like hers, maybe we can figure out the roles like a nonogram.

    "Boebert was NOT involved in the "events" at D.C. on the 6th, so we can cross her off the "agent provocateur" on the day of, which still leaves the time leading up to and after it."

    Seriously, though, reading her tweets as the events unfold with the eye of a Meal Team 6 traitor, it looks very damning.  Not to mention, has she ever tweeted about Pelosi or any Dem for that matter without attacking or insulting them?  Why would she suddenly feel THAT news, of all the things in that moment, was what she wanted to tweet?

    Curious!
     

    • PMan says:

      Are you "Voyageur" posting under "Voyageuses"?

      • deleganza B==D says:

        Nope.  Completely different person than the unabashed homophobic/transphobic/racist lying bully /geriatric/loser everyone here calls “V”.

        Although I have also not won a Pulitzer, so we have that in common. Then again, I would NEVER insult someone after finding out their mother had a tragic death. Whatshisname has no qualms with such depraved hypocrisy.

      • kwtree says:

         PMan, unless you want all the threads slopped up with gross ageist "Grampa diaper" posts, avoid responding to "Voyageuses" or any alternate spelling of Voyageur.

        This troll does not care about having a forum that informs and is fun to read. His gigantic ego only cares about continuing on his grudge forever.

        • M. chapeau blanc says:

          “This troll does not care about having a forum that informs and is fun to read. His gigantic ego only cares about continuing on his grudge forever.”

          Haha, talks about ego while supporting a literal homophobe and transphobe.  

          I’m happy to leave, but man, he just makes it so easy! Why would failure like him come on here and prolong this agony for everyone when all he has to do is acknowledge he was having sick fun because he is a sick man who lies.

          If not, well, you guys aren’t complaining about this bed you keep returning to, so why change? 

          He slings juvenile humor and you guys chuckle, cool for you.  It’s not cool for outsiders.

          If you want to silence anyone who isn’t your bully pal, may I suggest TRUTH Social?  They at least make an attempt to put their favoritism in plain english, unlike you.

          BTW, you never answered.  Isn’t smoking cannabis a problem as a teacher? I mean, drug testing isn’t assured, but there’s not really any recourse for you if one uptight parent complained, would there be? Seems like some thin ice!

           

        • M. chapeau blanc says:

          This is the "justified mockery" you meant right? It really does make this place fun, being unapologetic dipshits to each other.  

          DEFINITELY don't get enough of that in the rest of America right now. 

      • Voyageur says:

        No, Pman.  I have my failings but identity theft isn’t one of them.  Gudolph the troll  — his original name here and still the handle he uses on other sites like Twitter, where he has also f aced sanctions, has created about a dozen sock puppets here.  Each featur es my stolen avatar of a platypus and a screen name as close to Voyageur as he can get — even repe atedly using the transposed VoyagUEr hoping to fool people.

        it doesn’t work, of course.  But everyone was shunning Guldolph’s rantings.  By posing as me, he hopes you will read at least some his drug-slurred ravings.

        Then he uses his sock puppets to praise the writings of his other sock puppets! Goebbels would be proud.

        Keep the faith and sp read it gently.r

        .

        And don’t feed the troll.

        –The one and only real Voyageur.

        • M. chapeau blanc says:

          Nice, Miles.  Not backing off I see.I know about your twitter handle too!  You have a lot of work-related followers! Shall we get their take on your attitude and language as well? 

          Hahaha. You are so old.  What else have you found Googling, gramps? See, I don’t have a public persona or platform – unlike you – so I am not so worried.  You started out harassing me, Miles. Now you’re actually trying to find who I am?  That is psychotic.  Pretty sure your paper has a clause about code of conduct explicitly about that.

          You are still here lying, Miles.

          This is not the conduct of a Pulitzer Prize winner. 

          Which makes sense. And not in a good way devil

          (cuz you are a loser!)

          Tee Hee HEE.
           

          Sad Grandpa’s alcohol soaked brain 🙁 Can’t remember the word “Sorry”

        • SorrySeemsToBeTheHardestWord says:

          "sock puppets" lol.  You are SUCH a boomer, gramps.

          Once again, same account. 

          Once again, NEVER used your name. Never pretended to be you. 

          You are self-identified as a journalist who won a very specific award which you use as a cudgel to bully me and try to make me leave.

          I hate lying liars and homophobes in the media! You feign like you are on the right side, but it's not until your bff MichaelBowman shows up to actually give it legitimate scrutiny. 

          You're a lazy writer. No wonder you don't win awards if you can't even fact check a simple post before slandering them for diction!

          Also, your vocab is slipping in your twilight.

        • SorrySeemsToBeTheHardestWord says:

          Will the real Voyageur please stand up?

        • pxtree says:

          Oh! I just saw your new baseless accusation that you’ve concocted.

          You don’t understand sock puppets. I have used one account to comment here. I have never spoofed accounts to praise myself, dumbdumb. 

           

          Just keeping a step ahead of bigots like you.

          Sleep tight. Hope you don’t make boom booms! And I hope that you shut the fuck up about me unless it’s to apologize 😉 Unbelievable how many pussies like you there are here trying to claim ageism as a legitimate abuse while you have verbally assaulted me for my homosexuality. Fuck. You.

      • The realist says:

        And the only efficient, effective solution is to scroll past each and every comment the troll posts.

        • Gianni Autobot says:

          That's right, REALIST! 

          That was Skip Realist with the "Does scrolling still work?" update! Stay safe out there, Realist! Who knows how long this storm will last?

          Only Voyageur can tell!

        • Duke Cox says:

          It seems this troll is determined, perhaps well paid. It seems the goal is to suppress participation and readership..

          This will come down to a decision by Alva.

    • Voyageur says:

      Don’t feed the troll.

      • M. chapeau blanc says:

        Uh oh, grampy edited his comment. Someone’s getting tired of being such a big dick!

        THAT’S OKAY GRANDPA! LET’S GO AHEAD AND GET YOU READY FOR BEDDY-BY.

        Who’s a homophobic liar, FCC felon, and failure? YOU ARE!

        Apologize, you tired sad sack of dick.

  4. MartinMark says:

    I don't know a couple of those Reps on the list, but I just looked around the room and played a game of "who's the patsy?" and suddenly things aren't looking so good for Boobert.

     

    Bus; meet the dimwitted tool from Rifle.

    • Meiner49er says:

      +100. Just naive enough to fall for it, and let's hope she will.

      • Diogenesdemar says:

        Unwitting fool might actually be her very best defense, . . .

        . . . it’d be damn difficult to prove or argue otherwise.

        It’s a role she was born to play, and has been assiduously working towards her entire life. Too bad for her she’s not nearly smart enough to play even that part.

        • Voyageuses says:

          She's like the Forrest Gump of MAGAts.

        • Duke Cox says:

          Seriously. How hard can it be? How can you fail so miserably at being a representative of CD3? Even Doug Lamborn figured out how to keep his job…so far.

          The role of “unwitting fool” is one, I admit, I have played in my early years. I think we all do, once or twice…but, then we learn. My congresswoman doesn’t seem to have an overly friendly relationship with knowledge and learning.

          She should know that proving the “fool” part is easy. Convincing authorities of the “unwitting ” part…a bit dicier.

          • Conserv. Head Banger says:

            You give too much credit to Lamborn. In several primary seasons, the opposition wasn't able to unite behind a single candidate. Ergo, Doug has continued to be re-elected.

            • RepealAndReplace says:

              And that clown car show will probably continue into the future. 

              Taking on and replacing Stillborn is such an attractive prize that many will try for it but none will win it.

  5. NOV GOP meltdown says:

    If you're explaining, you're losing.  She is now explaining. I don't read all of her tweets because I value my own sanity, but I agree this is the first one I have seen from her on the defensive. That says a lot.

  6. FSD2021 says:

    You have to admit that people's determination towards what they believe is incredible (although it can be ridiculous and crazy as well). Frank Speech (that Mike Lindell broadcasting site) has entire section called "fix 2020 first

    As for the Jan 6th thing, didn't the FBI say that there was no corrdination. just a bunch of protesters? I'm just confused a bit. Honestly, the world is going crazy lately.
