Out of all the innocent people who have been railroaded by the government over the mostly peaceful January 6 Election Justice protest, none have had it worse than the Oath Keepers. The group’s founder, Stuart Rhodes, received a prison sentence of 18 years for his role in the protest. Many of the group’s members have been sentenced close to that length of time as well.
Newly released footage, which has been corroborated by a Member of Congress, proves that Capitol Police officers LIED UNDER OATH during the Oath Keepers’ trial.
Capitol Police Special Agent David Lazarus was the head of Nancy Pelosi’s security detail at the US Capitol on January 6th. He testified under oath in the Oath Keepers trial. The government’s central argument that the Oath Keepers were guilty of “seditious conspiracy” and leading an “insurrection” was due to an interaction in which the members allegedly clashed with law enforcement.
This “clash” happened at the top of the stairs next to the Capitol Rotunda, also known as the Speaker’s Lobby. The jury in the Oath Keepers trial was never shown any security footage of this supposed “clash.” They had to take the government’s word for it. And they did, since Special Agent Lazarus and other Capitol Police officers appear to have LIED to the jury under oath.
The altercation with four Oath Keepers supposedly happened between them and U.S. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn. Lazarus testified during the trial that he was evacuating “11 or 12 staffers” of Nancy Pelosi’s when he observed Officer Dunn in this altercation “3 or 4 times.”
Assistant United States Attorney Alexandra Hughes asked Special Agent Lazarus whether the encounter between Dunn and the Oath Keepers was antagonistic.
“Every time I interacted or came by, yes, it was antagonistic,” testified Lazarus under oath, in what was a pivotal moment in the Oath Keepers trial. Lazarus claimed that he was able to evacuate the 11 or 12 staffers because Dunn had the Oath Keepers tied up in this supposedly violent, tense, and antagonistic confrontation.
Except that never happened. Special Agent David Lazarus was not even in the same building when Dunn’s alleged confrontation with the Oath Keepers happened. He didn’t witness anything. He clearly lied under oath.
The Blaze Media (Glenn Beck’s outlet) has been reviewing the January 6 footage from the Capitol. Beck is one of the conservative media figures who was sort-of-but-not-really given access to the footage of the protest. They have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt, based on David Lazarus’s movements that day, that he was nowhere near the Capitol Rotunda. The Oath Keepers had already peacefully left the building by the time that Lazarus stated under oath that he saw this alleged “altercation.”
There are more than 1,700 cameras inside the Capitol, and all of them record time-stamped footage, but no sound. The Blaze was able to retrace the steps of Lazarus and compare that to the exact time when Dunn was interacting with the Oath Keepers. Special Agent Lazarus was about a half-mile away when the Oath Keepers were talking with Officer Dunn. Lazarus did not see squat.
He perjured himself on the stand in order to allow the Biden regime to score a conviction against innocent men and women in the Oath Keepers. This is crystal-clear from the video footage.
Congressman Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) is the Chairman of the Committee on House Administration’s Subcommittee on Oversight allowed The Blaze to have access to the CCTV video and images of Lazarus’s whereabouts on January 6th. Loudermilk released additional images corroborating the entire story. It’s all true. Lazarus lied under oath about where he was and what he saw on January 6th, and innocent people were sent to prison for decades because of his lies.
Rep. Loudermilk issued this statement when he corroborated The Blaze’s story:
“An allegation of a Capitol Police officer lying under oath is very serious and must be fully investigated. For this reason, I am releasing these still frames from USCP CCTV video footage, with timestamps, showing the movements of Officer Lazarus on January 6, 2021.”
All of the Oath Keepers should immediately be released from prison. The government lied to secure a conviction against them for “seditious conspiracy” and for supposedly attempting to overthrow the government.
Here is the proof:
