'Strong evidence' shows rioters intended to 'capture and assassinate elected officials,' prosecutors say
"Capital riot, recurrent regards the so called que non shaman. Jacob Chan's leave. Arizona is accused of taking parts in the riots while sporting face paint, no shirt and a furry hat with horns. But while Chancellor's appearance has been the stuff of ridicule, prosecutors say his intentions were in their words. Capture and assassinate elected officials in court documents hints at a more organized effort than first thought. Let's bring in w T o p national security correspondent J. J Green to talk more about this J. J. Why do investigators think writers had plans to actually kill US officials? Yeah, Brennan and Shawn. It's because of the tale of the tape and the transcript prosecutors in Phoenix or in court right now seeking pretrial detention of Chan's Lee, and it's because they say they have strong evidence, including chancellor his own words, which are on video in some places. And his actions at the Capitol that support what they say was the intent of capital rioters to capture and assassinate officials in the U. S government. And that was something that they found evidence of, or at least statements made by Numerous other people that have been involved in this not just on the day of the riot but leading up to it. And even since then, That's the reason why they think there is something to this. And that's the reason why so many people are being rounded up and asked about this particular thing. But JJ during the news conference today by the U. S attorney for D, C and the FBI, the officials there suggested they didn't have any direct Evidence of that yet that the mob intended to murder someone. What does that tell you about the investigation? At this point? Yeah, They're only a week into the investigation, and they're still rounding up suspects and and and evidence, of course, and I think authorities were saying they don't have any evidence that they were organized teams or groups of people that were organized to do this, But that doesn't mean That there wasn't the intent to do this because again looking at some of the weapons that ended up in there. They were firearms in there. There were, um, hammers. There were knives. There were all sorts of items that could inflict bodily harm, and there were people. They said to be to have been literally hunting down members of Congress and other officials. And we're very close to actually getting to vice president Pence and some of them were chanting Hang pants. So you know there is a significant concern about that, actually, being something that was on the minds of people, so this investigation is still kind of early. They maybe haven't found the Actual concrete slam dunk information they want, but there's definitely some indication that it was on the minds of some people now onto the concern about arm protests, possibly around the country. You've talked with law enforcement officials in other states, including Virginia. They say it is a very real concern. What have you learned? Yeah, just spoke not too long ago with Brian Moran, the secretary of public safety and Homeland Security in Virginia. And he made it clear They knew about this intelligence that the FBI brought to us this week, he said. We knew about that several weeks ago. We've been working on this for a while. And that's because Virginia has a very robust intelligence collection apparatus of its own. But the message he says to those that are thinking about going to Richmond or anywhere else in Virginia. Don't do it, he says. We are ready for you, and we're not going to tolerate it, sending a very strong message to those that might be considering going anywhere in Virginia in the next few days, weeks or even months to commit this kind of violence. That they are going to be ready for him. All right, more to come. Thanks, JJ. You're welcome. W T OBY national security correspondent J. J

"Well. Do your point you need look no further than what Bernie Sanders said. I thought it was important to quote Bernie Sanders. In his address at the Democrat National Convention Sean when I spoke last night. He said, he said many of the ideas that he had fought for. That, a few years ago were considered. His words were considered. Radical are now mainstream. In the Democratic Party. That's what Bernie Sanders said. I Know Bernie Sanders. I served in the Congress with Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders is an unapologetic. And and for for him to stand up and you look at their unity agenda and for all the things that you said and and then we spoke about them last night the the choice in this election has never been clear where we cut taxes by more than five trillion. Joe Biden in the middle of a global pandemic wants to raise taxes by four trillion dollars. He wants to bury our economy under a two trillion dollars version of the green new deal I mean all all of the policies one after another I think lay out the kind of choice that that I I'm I relish the opportunity I'm headed out tomorrow. I'm going to be in. We're going to be taken our case all across this country, and I think we're going to win four more years for President Donald Trump in the White House. It's the stated policies of of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are implemented in other words. The Kamala Harris had said that she supported defunding the lapd one, hundred, fifty, million dollars Joe Biden he can run as much as he wants, but he said police become the enemy and he would reallocate funds away from the police he said it. If that policy if open borders if that policy is implemented and free healthcare for people that didn't respect our law sovereignty borders et Cetera if they're planned Comma Harris that I would ban fracking Joe. Biden literally said, no, no new oil drilling or fracking on federal lands. My my plan goes beyond the new green deal We have to shut down all coal burning plants. Joe. Biden said. So they promise everything is going to be free from cradle to grave womb to tomb, and they're going to get rid of the lifeblood of the world economy and Donald Trump has brought us to energy independence of the. We're now the world's largest producer of energy for the first time in seventy five years. What would the stated plans if implemented make this country look like? Well it that's why I said last night I think the question. The issue in this election. Is whether America remains America look we have built and this president. Revived the most the the strongest..

Not The there are there are other options it is so frustrating to me. That we don't, you know think out of the box where the United States of America we are. You know the heart and soul of nuclear energy of of Defense Weaponry Predator drones. We can come up with a non lethal alternative t for cops rather than just having one option option the the nuclear option to tell us that which is to pull out of firearm when you pull it out by the way. Guess what you've got you know pull out unless you're GONNA use it. It's it's just so frustrating. Democrats complaining about Pompeii Oh Let's see six I'm sorry I said twelve six Obama. Cabinet. Members spoke at the twenty two convention hoops daisy. See. We had secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Bilious. You know she's the one that lied about you get to keep your doctor, keep your plan and save on average twenty, five hundred dollars per family a year. Well, just the opposite happened Secretary of Interior Ken. Salazar he spoke Secretary of Agriculture Tom Bill Sex spoke secretary of Education Arne Duncan spoke. Secretary, of veterans, Affairs Ernie Shin Seiki also spoke Karen Mills Administrator of the US Small Business Administration. You know elevated in the an cabinet to the cabinet level position. The Obama. Years Oh that would be media hypocrisy again, the mob lying to you yet. Again, we have AOL, see saying liberals should take the elephant mascot from the GOP because they are compassionate creatures. But but but I don't even know what to say about this madness Democrats are in panic because voters turning away from the left unending violence. Why is Joe Buying? So reluctant because he already adopted the they become the enemy, his words you can run and hide only once he said it, and of course, will redistribute funds elsewhere. That would be de Fund and Comma Harris more honest praising. The the defunding of the LAPD by one hundred and fifty billion dollars Oh. So now that the can't get Mike Pompeo, over speaking at the Convention Susan Rice's saying, well, he's problematic as secretary of state because he's overtly religious.

"I found it somewhere I apologize not remembering the liberal media, the mob ignoring one of the big stories in the convention. The president of the United States. You know you think of the speakers at this convention and you think of everybody every race, every background, every creed, every religion participating what what did you see at the Democratic Convention Michael Goodwin has a good point in his column today Michael Goodwin for two weeks. I think has been the best writer in the country on analyzing what's going on in these conventions. And that is about law and order and how he says that the president has staked out a position, the defender of America. By the way a little late but now in Kenosha Wisconsin. Wow. Now that the governor finally got up off his ass and is now requested the help president trump was more than willing to to give to every big city. Well, they're restoring law and order and safety and security for the people of Kenosha that deserve all of. That every American has a right to live in a safe neighborhood town city so that they can have their pursuit of happiness that is basic. That is fundamental. You don't have safety you don't have security you don't have law. You don't have order. You don't have a shot. If you worried about a one year old getting shot in a stroller in park or worried that you know mom might make a wrong term in turn into a autonomous Chaz. Atlanta or that you might actually leave your house or maybe not even leave your house in Chicago on an average weekend or you know what? How many would now on three straight months of violence in Portland? Are you kidding me? Democrats didn't even mention it. For the four days they had their convention nine words, Karl Rove. Reminded me and it'll be on later today nine words Joe Biden uttered about safety insecurity in our cities. They they didn't acknowledged that this is happening in this country and back to Michael Goodwin, you know finally now I guess, Joe's being pressured because well, first of all, why is Joe one willing to call it what it is? This is anarchist taking over cities. The rioting is organized and orchestrated that businesses and lives are lost and policemen are injured and killed, and then they can't even mention a word about it. You know do we talk about every cop? The dies every year in the line of duty. Do we talk about you know I I the only one that I know the media during Barack and Joe's eight years that would scroll names that you've never heard before of the people that were shot in Barack Obama's hometown of Chicago and I'd scroll them. They barely mentioned it never mind lift a finger to fix anything. I mean how how is that possible? That you just.

"That was. All the Joe Biden mentioned about the violence in American. Cities that have now been ongoing for over three months and and it's like, okay what hear? No Evil See? No Evil Say no evil. How do you stick your head in the sand when people are dying and businesses of being destroyed and you just deny the reality I mean actually you know when I get back to regular programming which you know and obviously covering the news, which is what we do but you have a scene of fake news CNN with flames of flying everywhere fiery. Peaceful protests after police shooting there's nothing peaceful. Here. Joe Biden should go and get out of Delaware and just listened to families they're scared they're scared to walk the streets. They walked every day before how many reports do you see day in and day out of somebody being beaten to be in a coma but somehow that was a safe protest. Are you see buildings being burnt? I mean what's happening in Wisconsin? That's an Americana city of about one hundred. Thousand people and who's coming in and doing that comes from Chicago we watched. But what was the mayor of Chicago? She protects her street and thinks she has a right for her protection but the rest of the people their lives don't matter how is every single weekend? We hear a report of a young child or somebody else being shot and killed in those cities and what's the common denominator they've had Democrat. Governor. Give Democrat leadership for number of years and that's what you'll buy. How could he ignored that when you've watched city after city American after American afraid all they want is their way of life back again want security they want safety and they only see the president willing to stand up for it the only reason why you're getting National Guard troops down in Wisconsin because the president is pushing and pushing. Same thing happened in the other cities. Well, I gotTa tell you something this. This is now the biggest choice election in history. I would argue that if Republicans stay United Republicans lay out a plan for restoring law and order we see unemployment you know they're predicting twenty-five percent outs below ten percent and I did not expect these jobs to comeback this quickly but this guy, the very specific issues. Of. Okay. Well. Biden had eight years with Barack what did they? They didn't do criminal justice reform police perform opportunities, zones They didn't create the jobs it was the worst recovery since the forties they put thirteen million more Americans on food stamps and eight million warned in poverty and the worst labor participation rates since the seventies they said nothing about corona virus when it actually mattered into Donald Trump. was acting they were busy with their sham impeachment trial hoax.

Must Tell You we we mourn with those who mourn and grieve with those who grieve. And we will never never diminish the losses that American families have experienced. But when I see the way, the American people have responded, our healthcare community has responded. In the way that this president has led all fifty states and territories to respond to this I I just I couldn't be more proud of this country and couldn't be more proud. To serve along the side, this president and all the second guessing by Joe, Biden. And his running mate won't won't change the fact of of what this president did and how wrong? Joe. Biden was. Your point is exactly right when when the president shut off all travel from. China. Sean I can tell you for a fact. That's saved. Countless. American. Lives it bought US invaluable time. To stand up it and an industrial response across this country, the likes of which we hadn't done since world, War Two I mean the truth is we knew that many people actually died in northern Italy when the coronavirus pandemic struck there. Because the hospitals were overwhelmed because they didn't have equipment they didn't have supplies but the when the president look he looked at the second largest economy in the world. And before there was a first community transmission case in this country, the president shut off all travel from. China. He said we're going to put the health of America. First, we're going to stand up. Cronin virus. Task Force that gave us the opportunity to launch this massive. Mobile Zeh Asian to make sure and credible doctors, nurses and healthcare workers. Had the P p. had the equipment we scaled out the testing to meet this moment. So we're we'll have that debate in the days ahead but I I must tell you that the president's foresight in making that decision as he did in January made an enormous difference in our national response and and I wanted people to be clear that we're not going to rest were not going to relent.

The comments that the president made about his position on life in just the heart of what he was saying was so phenomenal for those of us who are pro-life and I want to play a couple of these clips to give you an insight of what that day felt like hearing from the president for the first time at the march for it is profound honor to be the first president in history to attend the march for life.

We Glimpse The Majesty of God's creation when we hold a newborn in our arms we know the endless love that each child brings to family. When we watch child grow we see the splendor that radiates from each human soul and as the Bible tells us each person is wonderfully made John. I was standing there with those other. Hundred hundred and fifty thousand people and my job was hanging open. This is the president of the United States speaking so about the truth of what we believe in the Christian community about how God sees a baby in the world that we all have potential and it was so riveting to hear that truth proclaimed from the highest office in the land. Yeah and it just. Everybody was so appreciative. The politics aside. I've always said the abortion issue was taken from the moral sphere into the political sphere. This is a moral issue that our nation is facing and I'm grateful for anybody Democrat Republican. Anybody that has the clarity to see what life is about well. Let's go ahead and continue now more remarks from president trump back in January at the march for life specifically encouraging MOMS today. Your devotion in your leadership uplift our entire nation. And we thank you for that. The tens of thousands of Americans gathered today not only stand for life.

Millions of us who stand for the voiceless speaking into power and You know I understand. Maybe people who disagree don't like hearing that but I've got to tell you. The pro-life movement is is moving gaining steam. And it's gaining steam and people are beginning to wonder. Why do we do this? How can we do this? Should we doing this and I think I am hopeful that the end of abortion is near and I think we will be a better nation for it? It will certainly were praying toward that.

And I really couldn't speak I. I was really struck with emotion. I just kept thinking about what this moment meant. Our daughter who were just so proud of incredible young woman but we got about twenty feet away from the altar and I looked up and there stood her fiance and there were tears in his eyes and there was something in that moment. Jim that when I saw the look on her future husband's face. I just had this piece wash over and I think it may have been God's grace it may just simply been the look on his face but I just felt this great calm that This is exactly where the Lord wanted my daughter to be exactly where you know. It was going to be a new. It was good is good. I gotta ask you. This question is probably way outside protocol do you do background checks when you're the VP? John you're on your daughter's dating okay. Don't tell we don't but I tell them. We put the fear of the Lord in them right so good I always I had he let me ask you a family formation. There is a recent article David Brooks wrote. I think for the Washington Post and he pointed out the fact that the nuclear family doesn't seem to be working and he was suggesting in his piece that maybe we have to lean on the extended family and of course here focus on the family or saying. Wait a minute mom. And Dad's count. This is the way it should be any went on to say that You know fewer people less than half of the adults in our country now are actually married. Have a spouse and there's more pets in the home than there are children as a man who sits where you sit as the vice president and your core belief is a Christian. What are your thoughts about that in terms of family in this country? And what we're going through. There's no institution in the life of this nation more important than the family the bedrock and And making sure that we're making room for families making sure that That those who wear the uniform of the United States are able to serve his. Family's I just came from Peterson. Air Force Base. I I met with a number of the new leadership of our Space Command and the space force but I also had the chance to meet with spouses and one of the things that Karen has been working on. Diligently has been making sure that as as we support our military we also support our military spouses and their families and Let me just say that we. We really do We have worked to do. I mean they`re. They're many many years where we've seen Particularly in some of our inner cities of breakdown of the family. But even as I say that I have to tell you Jim Everywhere I go. I sense a renewal in this country. I I sense. People turning back to faith people turning back to family. I meet people every day and who I sense. That that energy from and And the letters that I receive every day my wife and I'll be married thirty five years. This year's graduation proud parents of these three kids And and we hear from people about The pride that people are taking in in their families lives and so I think we're I think we're in the middle of a not just an American comeback in our economy. I think we're we're in the middle of a comeback of the American family. Well I so appreciate that. I think I would agree with you wholeheartedly. That the family is coming back and we see it in different ways and I think A lot of what you and the president have achieved has provided that economic ability for families to become stronger. And do the things they they need to do I really think that's true. Jim and I appreciate the connecting. Those you see this booming economy when you see the way. The stock market is rising and remember that means people's pensions. Their 401K's are increasing. I just was. I was told by a hard-working blue-collar American the other day that they were planning to retire in seven years now they're going to retire in two years because their 401k has grown so much under president trump's leadership in the policies that we've advanced so you're absolutely right the stronger economic foundation rising wages that we see all across the country. We have absolutely every confidence that that's going to strengthen families and strengthen communities. Well now the connection there I remember having a discussion with James Lankford. The Great Senator from Oklahoma degree youth pastor by the way a great guy said to me. Jim You know a legendary youth camp. Yeah and he said one of the one of the things that people don't understand is that as family weakens government by necessity become stronger through welfare through food stamps etc when we have strong families government isn't as needed. Isn't that interesting and I thought that was quite profound. We need strong families. And I'm sorry to say to someone who works in the government. We need less government. Well it is an absolute truth of history. Since the days of Edmund Burke who is in so many ways the father of of conservatism. In the last two hundred years he talked about the family as the the little platoons there. It's it it is. The family is the it's the nucleus of our civilization and stronger families. will always contribute to to greater freedom more limited government. Here's an interesting insight. I remember talking to Supreme Court justice. I won't name him and he mentioned that you know when Christian organizations He looked a little puzzled and talked about. Do they all just feed the poor and take care poverty? I said no. Christian organizations have a variety of impact focus on the family. We're actually the number one fighter of poverty and he looked at me a little puzzled and I said the number. One predictor of poverty is a divorce. The breakup of a family.
