Does anyone at the DOJ really know what’s going on?
A few hours ago, Politico reported that acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin told reporters on Friday that there is no “direct evidence” that the rioters who took over the Capitol had a plan to “capture-and-kill” members of Congress or the Vice President despite an earlier filing in Arizona saying otherwise:
NEW: Federal Prosecutors are walking back a claim that the Capitol insurrectionists had a "capture-and-kill" plan for Pence and lawmakers. There's no "direct evidence," they say, despite a Thursday filing describing "strong" evidence.
