> A Republican state legislator from Oregon is under fire after a YouTube video discovered by journalists at Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB) shows Rep. Mike Nearman explaining step-by-step instructions on how to get into the Oregon State Capitol with his help, just days before an actual breach occurred. […] > “We’re talking about setting up Operation Hall Pass,” he says in the video, “which I don’t know anything about and if you accuse me of knowing something about, I’ll deny it.” > He added “but there would be some person’s cell phone which might be,” and proceeded to tell them a phone number that was edited out of the video. “But that was just random numbers that I screened up. That’s not anybody’s actual cell phone. And if you say ‘I am at the west entrance’ during a session in text to that number there, that somebody might exit that door while you’re standing there. But I don’t know anything about that.” Wow!!! Unbelievable…They literally got the “smoking gun” on this guy. Part of me wonders if something like this exists for the US Capitol Riot. Is that why the G**Q**P doesn’t want a commission to investigate it??? 🤨


Hint at? He fucking opened it for them on camera!


What other evidence do they need? Now do the US Capital riot


Suggesting to ransack a federal building is treason, not patriotism.


All of a sudden all these coincidental jokes and hypotheticals on air to wage war and to stand by are exactly what we have always known them to be, marching orders to the far-right terrorist.
