Neo-Nazi gang may get brought down because members discussed murder coverup — on a 911 call

Published

on

A newly unsealed Department of Justice indictment reveals that federal officials first started investigating a neo-Nazi gang called Aryan Circle when some of its members accidentally discussed covering up a murder during a 911 call.

The Daily Beast reports that trouble for the Aryan Circle began during a white supremacist house party in Evangeline Parish, Louisiana in 2016.

While at the party, gang members Jeremy Jordan and Clifton Hallmark got into an argument that allegedly ended with Jordan shooting Hallmark in the head. Two women in the gang, including one who was Hallmark’s wife, drove to a gas station to call 911 to get help for Hallmark, who at that time was clinging to life.

However, before she thought anyone on the other line could hear her, one of the women explained to the other that they were making up a cover-up story about how Hallmark got shot to protect Jordan from going to jail.

“We are going to tell them he got robbed, OK?” the woman said as the 911 dispatcher listened in.

The botched cover-up attempt set in motion a chain of events that the Daily Beast notes now threatens to destroy the entire Aryan Circle.

“The shooting got investigators’ attention,” the publication writes. “But the cover-up might bring down the group. The indictment unsealed last week accuses Jordan of using a firearm in a crime resulting in death, and seven Aryan Circle members of accessory after the fact to the murder.”

Trump has been lashing out at the four first-term congresswomen, who include Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.

"No matter what your politics are, I have to say that I appreciate the access ?Trump? gives us on a regular basis and the ability to ask any question," she said.

She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.
