A member of the far right group who traveled to D.C. before the attack testified about a massive cache of weapons stashed by the extremist group at a Virginia hotel room, Terry Cummings show drawers and AR-15 rifle and an orange box for ammunition that he contributed to a so called quick reaction force, the oath keepers had staged at the hotel in Arlington in case they needed weapons. Federal investigators reportedly have surveillance video of government documents being shuffled around Mar-a-Lago, and they have questioned a staff for allegedly involved. Two years news has learned the FBI has seen videos of boxes of government records being moved around the Trump Mar-a-Lago estate and has talked to an employee seen on them who reportedly told investigators the instructions to do that came from the ex-president.
