"I would never and did not advocate for any sort of end-run shenanigans. I wanted to push to make sure that shenanigans weren't being pushed in either direction," North Dakota Attorney General Drew Wrigley said in response to a report that he advocated for recounts in the 2020 election in a message that reached former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows.
Bowman County Sheriff Frank Erberle, who was named in an article published this week for being a member of the Oath Keepers according to a leaked membership roster, speaks out.

"General Mark Milley accused Donald Trump of preaching 'the gospel of the Führer' on Jan. 6, 2021, and referred to his supporters as 'Brownshirts in the streets.' Need more? 'This is a Reichstag moment,' Milley said. 'These guys are Nazis, they’re Boogaloo Boys, they’re Proud Boys. These are the same people we fought in World War II.'"

More than 840 people been charged with taking part in the Capitol riot, attacking police and sending lawmakers scrambling for safety.
