Andrew Wrigley is an artist and shoemaker from Pennsylvania. Here is a video of Wrigley talking about his painting; here is a series of videos in which Wrigley talks about making shoes by hand.
On January 8, 2021,a special agent with the Capitol Hill Police Investigations Division Threat Assessment Section received a set of images from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Washington Field Office Intelligence Operations Center. The images were screenshots of photos and videos from Wrigley's Facebook account which Wrigley posted after attending "the protest in DC at the Capitol #stopthesteal."
Wrigley also updated his page to the effect that he had also entered the building: "At the protest in DC I went inside the capitol building and got tear-gassed," he told his Facebook friends (and the FBI).
But was there proof?
You bet. The FBI forwarded a screenshot of what it believes to be a crime in action against the nation: specifically, a picture Wrigley had taken of himself -- "often referred to as a selfie," the special agent with the Capitol Hill Police Investigations Division Threat Assessment Section explained in the STATEMENT OF FACTS attached to criminal complaint against Wrigley to be found on the Department of Justice web page devoted to "INVESTIGATIONS REGARDING VIOLENCE AT THE CAPITOL."
This selfie, the CHP special agent went on to say, was taken "while he [Wrigley] was located within the U.S. Capitol Building."
Showing what makes a special agent so special, the CHP special agent continued: "Your affiant went to the U.S. Capitol Building, specifically the Upper West Terrace door, and confirmed that Andrew Wrigley, as depicted in this selfie photograph below, was inside the U.S. Capitol building on January 6, 2021."
I'm looking, but I am not exactly breaking into a cold sweat the way I do when I see pics of Mohammed Atta waltzing through airport security.
The affidavit continues:
In a separate photo posted on Andrew Wrigley’s page from January 6, 2021, seen below, there appears to be a photo of Andrew Wrigley without his face-obstructed holding a flag wearing a similar colored hat and jacket as depicted in the photograph in the bottom right corner of the left column of the screenshot of the Facebook page above.
Slap the handcuffs on the shoemaker flying The Spirit of '76 and book him, Dano.
Reading the charges against Wrigley based on this "evidence" from his Facebook page, bear in mind the variety and heft of the evidence that the 2020 election was stolen from Donald Trump, and which the Justice Department and FBI refused to act on. The Wrigley "evidence," however, triggers a bogus arrest; the election fraud evidence triggers a massive cover-up on behalf of the fraudulently installed "president."
Here are the charges, in all of their legal mumbo jumbo:
Based on the foregoing, your affiant submits that there is probable cause to believe that Andrew Wrigley violated 18 U.S.C. § 1752(a)(1) and (2), which makes it a crime to (1) knowingly enter or remain in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority to do so; and (2) knowingly, and with intent to impede or disrupt the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions, engage in disorderly or disruptive conduct in, or within such proximity to, any restricted building or grounds when, or so that, such conduct, in fact, impedes or disrupts the orderly conduct of Government business or official functions; or attempts or conspires to do so.
For purposes of Section 1752 of Title 18, a “restricted building” includes a posted, cordoned off, or otherwise restricted area of a building or grounds where the President or other person protected by the Secret Service, including the Vice President, is or will be temporarily visiting; or any building or grounds so restricted in conjunction with an event designated as a special event of national significance. Your affiant submits there is also probable cause to believe that Andrew Wrigley violated 40 U.S.C. § 5104(e)(2)(D) & (G), which makes it a crime to willfully and knowingly (D) utter loud, threatening, or abusive language, or engage in disorderly or disruptive conduct, at any place in the Grounds or in any of the Capitol Buildings with the intent to impede, disrupt, or disturb the orderly conduct of a session of Congress or either House of Congress, or the orderly conduct in that building of a hearing before, or any deliberations of, a committee of Congress or either House of Congress and (G) parade, demonstrate, or picket in any of the Capitol Buildings.
I came across Andrew Wrigley's case only bby chance when scrolling down to the bottom of the arrest list, where he is alphabetically the last entry, but trumped up charges are by no means unique.
Take Andrew Williams' charges.
The complaint against Andrew Williams boils down to his presence inside the Capitol and a few whoops of "Yeah baby!" The piece de resistance on his federal arrest record, though, is this pic of Andrew Williams looking very stern as he points at the Pelosi placard. Three strikes right there, bruh.
Here is how the FBI sets up its disorderly conduct charge (and "sets up" is right):
Describing a video clip showing people "climbing up steps and through scaffolding on the exterior of the Capitol," the FBI notes the audio of a person saying: "We are storming the Capitol! Yeah, baby!"
Immediately after that statement the camera was flipped around and WILLIAMS, who appears to be holding the camera, was recorded uttering an additional "Yeah!" in what appears to your affiant to be the same voice as that which made the statement about storming the Capitol.
An additional "Yeah!"? He uttered an additional "Yeah!" Who does Andrew Williams think he is? Send him up the river -- and no parole, given his comments from inside the Capitol: "Taking it back, baby!" "We are inside the Capitol!" "Thank you fellow patriot!" How are they going to arrest every single person?" "Good job man" "This looks nice." "This is really nice" "We are in the Rotunda."
Not "Workers of the World Unite," not "ACAB [All Cops Are Bastards]," but "This Is Really Nice."
I'm not trying to be funny. The black-comic aspects of this crisis actually make it all the more ghastly. Maybe it's the triviality of it all, amplified and blown up into fake crises the Deep State perpetrators are using to hide their fresh crimes and keep a stranglehold on reality -- the end of liberty, the end of law, the end of We, the People, and the end of self-determination.
Yeah, baby, the Spirit of 76 is being ripped to shreds by a police state that doesn't care how many lives it destroys so long as it also destroys our liberty and pursuit of happiness.
