[ Editor’s Note: Damn! Burner phones now have made the news finally after all of this post Jan 6 time. I was beginning to wonder if they would ever hit the news despite the stakes so high.
The story mentions the instructions to buy the three phones with cash, but that act alone is a potential terrorism charge in itself, stemming from post 9-11 legislation to discourage their use. The burner phone insurrectionists should have had a lawyer on retainer to call first, or maybe it was already Meadows.
The Rolling Stone story has the ‘burner phone’ Whitehouse coordinators as Eric Trump and his wife Laura, plus Mark Meadows and former White house chief of staff Katrina Pierson, a campaign consultant. One could safely assume this was a two way channel, with updates going in and instructions coming out of the White house. From Rolling Stone:
The member says a second phone was given to Amy Kremer, Kylie Kremer’s mother and another key rally organizer. The team member says they did not know who the third phone was purchased for.
“That was when the planning for the event on the Ellipse was happening, she needed burner phones in order to communicate with high-level people is how she put it,” the March for Trump team member tells Rolling Stone, referencing Kylie Kremer.
“They were planning all kinds of stuff, marches and rallies. Any conversation she had with the White House or Trump family took place on those phones,” the team member says of Kylie Kremer.
What we are seeing is that more and more sources are contacting the press to give information so it can be put out now versus six months from now.
What this also does is the Chinese drip torture routine, by showing the Trump targets that the prosecution is already lining up people to testify against them, which could possibly make some choose taking the 5th amendment to not get tagged with additional perjury charges, or flip on Trump early to get a better deal… Jim W.

In recent days there has been reporting about attempts by Bannon’s defense attorneys to convince a judge to allow them to distribute to the public the discovery given over by the prosecutors in Bannon’s criminal case for contempt of Congress.
This video discusses the common practice of courts to issue protective orders regarding discovery in criminal cases and what Steve Bannon is really trying to accomplish by objecting to these standard procedures.
Additional reporting has revealed that one of the organizers of the January 6 “Stop the Steal” rally insisted on having hard-to-trace “burner phones” to communicate with Trump family members, aides and former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows. This video also discusses the implications of these revelations.
