Former President Donald Trump posed for a photo with Jan. 6 defendant Rebecca Lavrenz of Colorado Springs, according to an Aug. 24 Facebook post.
Rebecca Lavrenz of Colorado Springs was arrested yesterday in connection with her participation at the Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection. Lavrenz is facing four charges, according to a September arrest warrant: entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds, disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds, disorderly conduct in a Capitol building, and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building.
During a Republican U.S. Senate candidate forum in February, Denver businessman and U.S. Senate candidate Joe O’Dea said he had friends who attended January 6, characterized it as a “rally,” and compared participants to those who took part in nationwide police brutality protests that occurred during the summer of 2020.
At a debate for Republican U.S. Senate candidates in Evergreen Tuesday, candidates were divided over whether it was appropriate for national Republicans to censure U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) last month.
Attorney John Eastman, the architect of former President Trump’s failed attempt to have Vice President Mike Pence block the certification of the 2020 presidential election results, is looking for donations — apparently targeting Christians in particular — to fund his legal fights, including his lawsuit against the University of Colorado (CU) and the state of Colorado
A year after the nation survived its first-ever insurrection, federal law enforcement has so far arrested twelve Coloradans for their participation. While prosecutors are focusing on bringing charges against the most serious offenders, such as those suspects who assaulted police, vandalized federal property, and entered the House itself, it’s worth keeping in mind that the sheer size of the march overwhelmed the Capitol Police who simply didn’t have the numbers to prevent the crowd from surrounding the building. Those protestors who walked past police barriers, but stopped short of entering the Capitol may not have committed as serious crimes as those who broke in, but their presence allowed more aggressive marchers to act with impunity.
Grassroots activist leaders in the Colorado Republican Party have new hope in overcoming legal and financial barriers in their 5-year quest to withdraw from open primaries in Colorado, with an apparent offer of discounted legal representation in challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 108, a state law instituted by voters in 2016 that regulates how parties can choose their nominees for state elected office.
