So while the world is focused on the debacle in Afghanistan, the FBI quietly drops this little piece of news into the media cycle.
After almost 8 months of persecuting, harassing, and detaining Americans for minor crimes the FBI could find no coordinated effort to accomplish an insurrection on January 6th, 2021.

According to Reuters:
The FBI has found scant evidence that the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result, according to four current and former law enforcement officials.
Though federal officials have arrested more than 570 alleged participants, the FBI at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump, according to the sources, who have been either directly involved in or briefed regularly on the wide-ranging investigations.
“Ninety to ninety-five percent of these are one-off cases,” said a former senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. “Then you have five percent, maybe, of these militia groups that were more closely organized. But there was no grand scheme with Roger Stone and Alex Jones and all of these people to storm the Capitol and take hostages.”

It was centrally coordinated.

This is so infuriating, considering how much people have suffered because of these accusations.
A couple of weeks ago I shared a video of an interview with 1/6 detainee Karl Dresch, who described being in solitary confinement for 28 hours at a stretch and being allowed to shave or meet his lawyer if he refused the vaccine.
Thanks in great part to welovetrump readers, that video has received more than 150K views and has brought attention to the plight of those still inside the jail.
Recently, we heard from his wife who has a page created on a Christian site.
Please support the Dresch family as they try to recover from 6-months wrongfully held in solitary confinement for “parading” on Jan. 6th. https://t.co/Jbm493ARIl

On her Givesendgo page, Karl’s wife Sara shares some of her own suffering at losing the breadwinner of their home at a time when she had just lost her father:
During our return home on the 16th, from our DC trip, we received the news that my father passed of cardiac arrest due to Covid-19. Karl immediately drove me to care for my mother who was also suffering from the illness, and then to help make funeral arrangements for my dad. He returned to our home to attend to what was needed before he was to travel back; pay on our bills, mail my calendar, pick up his son from school, and then return to SC for his father-in-law’s funeral. However, January 16th ended up being the last day I’ve been able to see my husband. While running errands on the 19th, he was stopped by the police with warrants and taken to the station as feds were ransacking our home.
I returned to our home in MI and the feeling of being violated was sickening, they had flipped and ripped mattresses, keepsakes dumped out of storage totes and tossed clothes and items out of closets, it was “ransacked.” I was now alone to grieve the loss of my husband and father.
Since that day, the mainstream media outlets have repeatedly written fictitious portrayals of his intentions and actions and is facing several indictments for attending the protest. He was denied bond and dragged through five different prisons before arriving in DC in May to only be denied bond again. My husband is a gentle and kind man and caused no damage and was not violent. He was turned in by a stranger to the FBI on a tip from pictures online, along with false information of who we traveled with and how we arrived. Many people from our community have written letters on his behalf to his appointed judge. Our late Sheriff, Mayor, Pastor, family, and friends let the judge know he was not a threat to our community.
It’s so convenient that there is no one to call out the FBI for their sham investigation and their persecution of those who were caught up in it.
I guess the small mercy is that it’s finally over.
And hopefully, these poor people can go on with their lives.
