In October 2021, Retired Lieutenant Commander Thomas J. Caldwell and his wife appeared with Tucker Carlson on his top-rated Fox News show to explain how he’s been framed by the FBI for his alleged involvement in the Jan 6 “insurrection.”
Caldwell was held in solitary confinement. His wife was able to find a lawyer, David Fischer, to help them in their legal fight against the government that’s hell-bent on destroying Trump supporters who were present on January 6th, many of whom never entered the Capitol building.
On April 12, Fisher filed a motion to dismiss the charges against Caldwell. In his filing, Fisher claims at least 20 FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives “assets” were embedded around the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
Epoch Times reports – The allegation was made in a motion seeking to dismiss seditious conspiracy and obstruction charges against 10 Oath Keepers defendants in one of the most prominent Jan. 6 criminal cases.
David W. Fischer, attorney for Thomas E. Caldwell of Berryville, Virginia, filed a 41-page motion to dismiss four counts on behalf of all Oath Keepers case defendants before U.S. District Judge Amit P. Mehta in Washington.
Caldwell is charged in the indictment but isn’t a member of the Oath Keepers, he told The Epoch Times in March.
The footnote said defense attorneys “combed through a mountain of discovery,” including FBI form 302 summaries of interviews conducted by FBI agents.
In addition to the information about law-enforcement assets on the ground at the Capitol, the footnote says, the Oath Keepers “were being monitored and recorded prior to J6.”
An examination of evidence turned over in discovery by prosecutors in two major Oath Keepers cases has “not found one iota of proof” that defendants “had any plan, intention, design, or scheme to specifically enter the Capitol Building on J6,” the motion says.
The FBI finally admitted last September to The New York Times that they were running informants and operatives inside groups attending the January 6 rallies in Washington DC.
