The Defense attorney for one of the Oath Keepers charged in the Jan 6 riot is seeking 80 “suspicious actors” and material witnesses. Brad Geyer believes that the Federal government engaged in entrapment of his client, and he has video footage to back up the claims of a coordinated group effort against his client and others.

As we have reported previously, the bronze doors leading to the Capitol Rotunda were opened from the inside, not “breached” by the crowd outside. The Defense lawyers claim that a specific group of men acted in a coordinated effort and “committed crimes including the removal of security fencing, breaching police lines, attacking officers, and inciting crowds to storm into the Capitol.”

A motion filed on April 12 suggested that there were at least 20 FBI and ATF members embedded in the crowd. The motion filed on May 5 suggested there were at least 80 people the attorney called “suspicious actors.” Brad Geyer, the defense attorney representing Kenneth Harrelson requested the court force the Federal government to identify those people.

In a motion (pdf) and supplement (pdf) filed after 11 p.m. on May 5 in federal court in Washington, attorney Brad Geyer listed 80 people, some of whom he said could be government agents or provocateurs. The people are seen on video operating in a coordinated fashion across the Capitol grounds on January 6, the attorney alleged…

….According to the new filing, video evidence the defense gained access to only recently shows that some of the 80 people attacked police, other people, and members of the Oath Keepers; entered the Capitol on the west side “with apparent permission or acquiescence of government actors”; opened the Columbus Doors on the east side of the Capitol “from the inside, possibly with even further assistance of government actors”; and deployed “sophisticated crowd-behavior techniques,” orienting themselves between protesters and police.

Suspicious actors are seen on video “associating, conferring and traveling with others, engaging in behavior to confuse law enforcement through body masking, facial masking, clothing changes, and disorienting skirmishing behavior,” Geyer wrote.

The suspected people used earpieces, satellite phones, and other communication equipment. “Often it appears that these communications devices do not seem to be affected by capacity restriction or sophisticated jamming that was evident throughout the day,” Geyer wrote.

The recent decision for the defendants in the Gov Whitmer case in Michigan where the jury was allowed to consider entrapment by the FBI may play a vital role in this case. Two defendants were acquitted and two had a hung jury. When a group of “suspicious actors” may have funneled the Oath Keepers into the Capitol Building, it begs the question about entrapment. IF those same “suspicious actors” were indeed government assets, the defense can make a huge case that should cause the entire proceeding to be dismissed.
