Dallas man's social media 'incriminates' him in Capitol attack; charged for death threat against AOC

1 month ago 19

As noted by Law and Crime’s Jerry Lambe, Garret Miller essentially wrote his own charging document on social media. Before he went to Washington, D.C. for “this Trump shit,” as he called it in a Jan. 2 Facebook post, Miller was expecting, perhaps even hoping, that “some crazy shit (was) going to happen. “Dollar might collapse,” Miller predicted, and “civil war could start.” Miller, 34, also told his Facebook friends what he planned to bring: “a grappling hook and rope and a level 3 vest. Helmets, mouth guard, and bump cap.”

He tweeted video from the Rotunda, mid-riot, and under a handle that included his full name, with the caption “from inside Congress.” He posted selfies in real-time, and he engaged with people, joking with one commenter that he wanted to “incriminate” himself “a little” with his photos. While still on Capitol grounds, Miller, apparently scrolling his feed, challenged false “antifa did it” narratives—by taking credit for the assault on Congress. “Nah, we stormed it. We (were) gentle. We (were) unarmed. We knew what had to be done,” he tweeted, in addition to telling a member of the clergy to “wake the fuck up.” “I charged the east gate myself with an anti-masker,” he insisted on Facebook, while noting on Instagram that he and his fellow invaders got in “as peacefully as we could without weapons.”

And when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted “Impeach.” from a Capitol safe room, Miller replied, “Assassinate AOC.”
