FBI Seized Thousands of Cellphone Records of Those at the Capital on January 6

The FBI collected thousands of phone and electronic records of those at the Capitol on January 6, including some belonging to members of Congress. The FBI relied on emergency orders that do not require court authorization to secure communications from people at the scene. They also obtained information from cell phone towers and telecom providers. Many felony indictments are expected. -GEG

Investigators have also relied on data “dumps” from cellphone towers in the area to provide a map of who was there, allowing them to trace call records — but not content — from the phones.

Were the Bolsheviks ever put on trial? Mau? Castro? Pol Pot? Seems Communists have yet to be held accountable for their massive crimes against Humanity. That’s why this is happening now.

How ironic that the FBI confiscated thousands of Mobile Phones should also be confiscated from Antifa, BLM and Capital Police as well.
