Edward Kelley was charged with conspiracy, retaliating against a federal official, and solicitation to commit a crime of violence while simultaneously being subject to charges of assaulting an officer during the January 6 riots at the Capitol. Austin Carter was arrested and charged with partaking in the plot.
According to the New York Times, the pair planned to take out a list of 37 agents, but an anonymous individual alerted the authorities after obtaining the list from Carter alongside a USB from Kelley’s home holding video of officers approaching his residence on the day of his arrest.
They were going to start with the agents that arrested Kelley, and then keep going.
With the House of Representatives committee on the insurrection preparing to deliver its final recommendations on Monday, 34-year old Edward Kelley of Maryville was charged with conspiracy, retaliating against a federal official and solicitation to commit a crime of violence, reported CNN.
Kelley was already facing charges of assaulting an officer during his participation in the 6 January riots.
Evidently Kelley and his buddy Carter were caught when the person they asked to “stash some stuff”, and told of their plans, decided they wanted no part of this madness.
So when Steve Bannon asks “Are we at war [with the Deep State]”, Edward Kelley and his ilk believe that yes, we are.
Donald Trump is quite willing to destroy America itself to keep himself out of jail, and Steve Bannon is eager to help him do it.
