Don’t know if you’ve seen this yet but it’s pretty damn funny.
Brian McCreary just wanted to help I guess. So he called in a tip to the FBI tip line:
“I noticed the instigators call for action early on- and decided to follow them in order to record. -Clip 20210106_140817 don’t see the person but overhear Get more people up there. -Clip20210106_140957 Not sure if this is useful..."
"On January 7, 2020, the FBI received information through one of its Internet portals from an individual, believed to be MCCREARY, who provided the following identifying information:
Name: Brian P. McCreary
E-mail address: email@example.com.
Telephone: (321) 274-xxxx
The information provided by MCCREARY included ... text and video clips"
Useful? Yeah I think so. Special agent Emily Eckert had this to say in the complaint with arrest warrant:
"A review of the video clips provided by MCCREARY, described above, showed various video footage both inside and outside the U.S. Capitol, to include rioting on the Capitol steps, a mob of people rushing the doors of the U.S. Capitol, a mob of people breaking down doors and windows of the U.S. Capitol, and multiple videos showing confrontations between rioters and uniformed police officers inside the U.S. Capitol."
Useful enough to drive to Massachusetts and have a talk with Mr. McCreary.
"During the course of the interview MCCREARY was shown the first image pictured above, and he identified himself as the individual wearing the blue surgical mask inside the U.S. Capitol."
So thanks Brian your tip was very "Useful"
