In a motion to dismiss accusing the FBI of misleading the court, Owen Shroyer lies about the circumstances that led Alex Jones and him to lure hundreds of people to the East side of the Capitol only to inflame them with chants of "1776."

New language in Jenny Cudd's statement of offense shows that, before she went to the riot on January 6, she stated she was "all for" a revolution. After she returned, she bragged that she had been present "when the new revolution started."

Defense Attorney Heather Shaner argues that probation is a better way to deal with "pawns" whom coup plotters exploited as part of their coup attempt. She may not have the answer, but she's asking the right question.

For months, the Proud Boy leaders have been claiming that Aaron Whallon-Wolkind's behavior leading up to the January 6 riot was more damning than their own. Now, Zach Rehl's lawyer is attempting to claim none of that is true.

In a motion for a Bill of Particulars, Michael Sussmann identifies two big holes in John Durham's indictment of him. But he also makes a reasonable argument that Durham's description of Sussman's alleged lie is too squishy to prove at trial.

DOJ IG released another of its reports on FISA, showing that for 2.6% of FISA applications, the FBI didn't have any Woods file attesting to the accuracy of discrete factual claims in the application. But while the report shows far more substantive issues that need to be addressed with the FISA process, it doesn't acknowledge that those substantive issues are more important to the integrity of the process than Woods files.

In the second bid by a January 6 defendant to claim he's being selectively prosecuted, David Judd claims that he's being treated unfairly because, unlike Portland rioter Isaiah Maza Jr, his charges weren't dismissed after he got murdered.
