The case against a DC police lieutenant accused of helping Proud Boys is growing increasingly 'terrifying'

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced earlier this month that District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) Lt. Shane Lamond had been indicted on four federal criminal charges: one for obstruction of justice, three for making false statements. DOJ prosecutors allege that Lamond shared police information with Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio and tipped him off about a case against him: the one in which he was arrested for his part in burning a Black Lives Matter sign that had been stolen from an African-American church in late 2020.

Lamond's arrest follows Tarrio's conviction in a separate case. Tarrio, along with three other members of the Proud Boys, was found guilty of seditious conspiracy for his role in the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol Building.

In an article published on May 26, Politico's Michael Schaffer emphasizes that the allegations against Lamond are especially troubling in light of his position in the MPD.

"The indicted officer is not some random beat cop," Schaffer notes. "A 24-year veteran of the department, Lamond led the Intelligence Branch of the department’s Homeland Security unit until last year, when he was suspended after coming under investigation. That investigation culminated in a May 19 obstruction of justice indictment for allegedly lying to investigators who were looking into the relationship with Tarrio…. According to prosecutors, Lamond and Tarrio communicated 500 times beginning in 2019, often via chummy exchanges."

Michael Fanone, a former MPD officer who was violently attacked by Donald Trump supporters inside the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021, has been sounding the alarm about far-right extremists working for police departments.

Fanone, now a CNN contributor, told Politico, "I think that most law enforcement agencies in this country are scrambling to maintain the officers they have and recruit new ones to replace the hundreds that they've lost. The last thing that they're worried about is coming up with a comprehensive screening process for domestic extremism.”

Schaffer warns that "the idea of even a small number of domestic extremists" being on the MPD "ought to be terrifying."

Civil rights attorney Mara Verheyden-Hilliard told Politico, "You'd be hard-pressed to think of a city where this is a more critical issue than Washington, D.C. What happens the next time we go on the January 6 path, which we all know could happen? What happens if there's this festering group within the MPD that haven't been weeded out? It's very dangerous.”

WATCH: Video presentation of key findings from House investigation | Jan. 6 final meeting

Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., introduced a video presentation on Dec. 19 as the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack presented its final findings to the public.

Before presenting the video, Thompson said “it’s important to remember what we’ve learned and, critically, exactly what happened at the United States Capitol on January 6th.” He noted that the presentation would include “some of the key evidence” collected during the investigation.

The compilation included footage from the Capitol insurrection and video testimony from White House staff and advisors, state elections officials, leaders at the Department of Justice and other key witnesses called over the course of the committee's hearings.

It was divided into labeled sections that asserted former President Donald Trump knew he lost the election, that he pressured state officials, the Department of Justice and former Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the election results and that Trump summoned the mob that carried out the insurrection.

Jan. 6 rioter who wanted Pelosi brought out to mob is sentenced to 2 years

Pauline Bauer was near the speaker’s office and said “we’re coming in if you don’t bring her out here.” She also fought police, officials said.



She was convicted at a bench trial — meaning before a judge rather than a jury — in January on charges of obstruction of an official proceeding, entering and remaining in a restricted building, disorderly or disruptive conduct in a restricted building and other counts.

An attorney listed as representing her did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Prosecutors said Bauer was part of a mob of supporters of then-President Donald Trump who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, as Congress was formally counting the electoral votes affirming Trump’s loss.

Trump and his supporters had spread lies about the 2020 election, and Trump falsely said that then-Vice President Mike Pence could halt the proceedings. Pence refused, saying he had no authority to do so.

Bauer had also pushed a Washington police officer during a confrontation and was physically removed from the area by officers in riot gear, the U.S. attorney's office said.

Bauer’s attorney argued for a period of supervision without additional imprisonment, writing in a sentencing memorandum that she regrets and takes responsibility for her actions and poses no threat to society.

Prosecutors sought 78 months in prison, or 6½ years, according to the government’s sentencing memo.

They argued that Bauer threatened to kill Pelosi of California, the Democratic House speaker at the time, yelling “They’re criminals. They need to hang,” and threatening to hang Pelosi by name.

In addition to the prison time, Bauer was sentenced to 24 months' supervised release and a $2,000 fine, the U.S. attorney's office said.

Woman who wanted Nancy Pelosi to "hang" on Jan. 6 sentenced



A 55-year-old Pennsylvania woman who said she wanted to "hang" House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021, was sentenced Tuesday to more than two years behind bars.

Pauline Bauer was sentenced to 27 months in prison, 24 months of supervised release and fined $2,000 for her conviction on charges including obstructing an official proceeding, entering and remaining in a restricted building and disorderly or disruptive conduct in a Capitol building.

Prosecutors said that on Jan. 6, as she was close to Pelosi's office, Bauer yelled, "They're criminals. They need to hang. Bring Nancy Pelosi out here now. We want to hang that f****** b****." Prosecutors also introduced body camera footage showing Bauer about 30 feet from Pelosi's office, saying, "Bring her out. Bring her out here. We're coming in if you don't bring her out here." When a Washington, D.C., police officer tried to push Bauer from the vicinity, Bauer pushed the officer back, according to prosecutors.

Bauer was a part of the crowd that forced the U.S. Capitol Police to retreat up the stairs, before she was eventually escorted out of the building, the federal government said.

More than 1,000 people have been arrested on charges related to the Capitol breach on Jan. 6, 2021, in the largest criminal investigation in the Justice Department's history. And over 300 defendants have been charged with assaulting or impeding law enforcement, according to the Justice Department.

Jan. 6 rioter who invaded Nancy Pelosi’s office denied summer respite and cushy prison camp recommendation



A Jan. 6th rioter seen gleefully kicking his foot up on a desk inside of then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office had wanted the rest of the summer to “arrange for his affairs” before reporting to prison. That man, Richard “Bigo” Barnett, also wanted a federal judge to recommend a low-security camp for him to serve his 4 1/2-year prison sentence.

On Tuesday, a federal judge refused to make those recommendations, leaving Barnett’s fate in the hands of the Bureau of Prisons (BOP).

“Defendant has had ample time since his conviction to prepare for his incarceration and presents no compelling reasons to justify additional delay,” U.S. District Judge Christopher R. Cooper wrote in a brief minute order. “Defendant’s request for a recommendation for a BOP placement beyond 500 miles from his home in order to qualify him for a minimum-security facility is also DENIED. Determinations regarding security-level placements lie in the sound discretion of BOP based on its internal criteria. The Court generally plays no role in those determinations.”

Barnett had requested a surrender date of Aug. 22, 2023, claiming it’s “not uncommon” to have a 90-day window between sentencing and prison. His attorney claimed that his client’s life circumstances warranted a summer recess.

“Specifically, Mr. Barnett’s significant other is disabled and he will need to liquidate personal property and try to earn some extra income to help her before he leaves,” his attorney Jonathan S. Gross wrote in a motion. “Additionally, he needs to do repairs to her home to make sure everything is in working order and other miscellaneous projects that will be unduly burdensome on her as she is not in a financial position to hire someone to do these projects.”

According to the motion, the Bureau of Prisons doesn’t typically support a prison recommendation that’s more than 500 miles away from the defendant’s residence. Barnett is from Gravette, Arkansas, a city of a little more than 3,500 people. Court papers do not disclose what prisons are being considered for Barnett’s term.

When photographed inside Pelosi’s office, Barnett smiled ear to ear with a stun gun in his pants and a foot kicked up on a desk. He left a note on the desk sneering: “Bigo was here b—-.” He then swiped an envelope from the office and claimed it as a prize in an interview outside of the building.

Barnett’s attorneys called his offense a nonviolent one and argued that he was being harshly punished because his case was “famous.” But Judge Cooper said that Barnett enjoyed the “notoriety.” A federal jury convicted him of obstructing an official proceeding, interfering with a police officer during a civil disorder, entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds with a dangerous or deadly weapon, and disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds with a dangerous weapon.

The dangerous weapon was a 950,000-volt stun gun and walking stick, with the brand name “Hike ‘n Strike.”

Another month passes and still no answers for the parents of the children killed in Nashville.  The FBI continues to illegally suppress the leftist manifesto.  They are being sued by the school that was victimized.  Disgraceful.  The FBI has also refused to provide a document alleging corruption by Old Joe while VP.  This despite a subpoena from Congress to make the document available.  They also continue to sit on the Hunter laptop.  Nearly a decade now.  How about they either confirm that there is no crime or prosecute Hunter?  Why sit on this?  Are they waiting until after the 2024 election as they did in 2020 with the fake Russian disinformation story?  Where are the prosecutions for the IRS officials who pulled the whistleblowers off the Hunter tax investigation when they reported that they were being stonewalled?  Retaliation against whistleblowers is a crime.  Remember when Dems told us that such whistleblowers were heroes?  I guess that works only one way.

More bogus propaganda, and another off topic post, but Trump insurrectionists are still going to prison and Criminal Donald is on his way.
