Kathyrn Fifield, the lead attorney representing the Justice Department, informed Judge Trevor McFadden that the “incalculable” volume of video collected by the government related to the Capitol breach investigation will prevent defendants and their lawyers from accessing the full body of evidence against them for several more months. “No system exists to wrap its arms around [all this evidence],” Fifield told McFadden. This includes at least 14,000 hours of surveillance video plus thousands of hours of body-worn camera footage from law enforcement.
Despite the lack of evidence against him, Hale has been behind bars since January. He is not charged with any violent crimes but the Justice Department repeatedly—and successfully—has sought his pre-trial detention. (McFadden denied Hale’s release in March.)
An informant wore a wire to record a conversation with Hale about a “civil war” and military investigators interrogated nearly four dozen of Hale’s co-workers about his alleged “white supremacist” views.
Hale was transported to at least five different prisons before arriving in early February at the D.C. jail specifically used to detain January 6 defendants. More than three dozen January 6 detainees are incarcerated at the D.C. Correctional Treatment Facility awaiting trial or plea offers.
“You would not arrest [someone] then gather evidence later. That’s not how this works.” When Fifield said full discovery is in the best interest of the defendant, McFadden shot back: “Freedom also is important to the defendant.” The Trump-appointed judge raised concerns over Sixth Amendment violations. “This does not feel what the Constitution [and] the Speedy Trial Act envisions.”
Despite the government’s confession that it is not prepared to make its case against Hale, McFadden set a trial date of November 9, 2021.

it's important to move all the informants and agents who took part in the violence and propagation of said violence away from all this, so the public never knows the involvement the FBI had in the attacks. No, rank and file aren't still 'good people', they are all covering for their fellow agents and allowing a lie to be told for the purpose of making sure Trump doesn't get another shot.
He fixed things, and that isn't how DC works. If you fix things, useless people stand out like a sore thumb. can't have that.
I won't stop posting these threads until the rank and file of the FBI STAND UP for what they have to know is WRONG.

I had heard about the 14,000 hours of CCTV video footage that the DoJ is refusing to release. They claim the footage would leak "sensitive information" about the layout of the Capitol complex. :eyeroll:
It'll be interesting to read the transcripts from the CI from the FBI to find out what they've set the bar at for being a "white supremacist".
