Oaf Creeper wanted to load boat with weapons for Potomac

A member of the right-wing paramilitary group the Oath Keepers in the days leading up to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot proposed a plan to transport "heavy weapons" in a boat across the Potomac River, prosecutors said in a Thursday court filing.

Federal prosecutors made the allegation in a memo opposing a motion for release from the attorneys of Thomas Edward Caldwell, who along with fellow Oath Keeper members Jessica Marie Watkins and Donovan Crowl, faces conspiracy charges in connection with alleged plans to lead a coup ahead of the deadly pro-Trump mob attack.

Days before the attack, prosecutors in the court filing say Caldwell reached out to a member of the Three Percenters, an extremist gun rights militia, saying with "someone standing by at a dock ramp (one near the Pentagon for sure) we could have our Quick Response Team with the heavy weapons standing by, quickly load them and ferry them across the river to our waiting arms."

The revelation came the same day prosecutors in a separate memo called for Watkins to be held in jail without bail, saying she had been awaiting instructions from former President Trump in the days leading up to the attack.

Can you imagine what a 30 or 50 cal machine gun could have done in that mess? Or an rpg?

3. A howitzer comes to mind. It's possible. Some gun nuts might have something like that.
