[ Editor’s Note: This guy jumped of the cliff. His training did not include how to adivse and insurrectionist while covering your insider trail. I would have thought a cop could have figured out that reviewing all social media was a brain dead guarantee.

But one prosecution out of the bigger batch they snagged for other violations leaves a lot of pro-Trumpers still on the payroll. I wonder if they will form their own union.

This is the part that blows me away:

“Next time you want to come to DC just call me, you can stay at my house on shore for free and bring your daughter to the museums,” Riley wrote, according to the indictment. “If you want to see the capitol building, lets do it legally next time….I know a guy who can get you a tour…lol.”

What is with this cop? Was he lonely. Someone once said, “You just can make this shit up.” To that I concurr 🙂 … Jim W. Dean ]

The insurection battle continues

First published … October 15, 2021

A Capitol Police officer has been charged with helping a Jan. 6 rioter attempt to obstruct justice by encouraging him to delete incriminating social media posts, federal prosecutors announced Friday.

“im a capitol police officer who agrees with your political stance,” Riley wrote, according to the indictment. “Take down the part about being in the building they are currently investigating and everyone who was in the building is going to be charged. Just looking out!”

In the two count indictment, prosecutors say the officer, Michael Riley, expressed support for the unnamed rioter’s political views and contacted him on Jan. 7 via Facebook direct message.

Riley encouraged him to remove incriminating evidence that he was inside the Capitol on Jan. 6. The rioter, identified only as “person 1,” was subsequently arrested.

Riley, a 25-year veteran of the Capitol Police force, faces two counts of obstruction and is expected to appear in court Friday afternoon.

“Obstruction of Justice is a very serious allegation. The Department was notified about this investigation several weeks ago,” said U.S. Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger. “Upon his arrest, the officer was placed on administrative leave pending the completion of the case. The USCP’s Office of Professional Responsibility will then open an administrative investigation.”

  1. Ok, I’m gonna have to show my ignorance again.
    I didn’t watch any of the “01/06” coverage, only snippets on VT after the fact.
    So basically, the “insurrectionists” broke through police lines and forcefully entered the Capitol.
    They were unable to accomplish their “objectives.”
    So everybody just went home?
    If not for the violence and deaths, the whole thing seems like some kind of joke.
    Like someone said, “if it happens in politics, it was planned that way.”
    Obviously the “insurrection” was planned.
    And obviously so was/were the outcome(s).
    One long drawn out psychodrama to what effect?
    The effect is, what the effect is.
