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 lashes out at ‘grossly incompetent’ Nancy Pelosi but claims GOP ‘killing it’ in impeachment hearings

President Donald Trump attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) from the White House on Tuesday.

As impeachment testimony was underway in the House, Trump told reporters in a Cabinet meeting that Pelosi is "grossly incompetent."

The president also said that Republicans are "killing it" in the impeachment hearings.

But Trump took a shot at Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who was testifying at the time.

"I don't know him. ... I never saw the man," he said. "I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in. No, I don't know Vindman at all. What I do know is that even he said that the transcript was correct."

Donald Trump Jr. questioned the military service of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, and was sprayed with venom.

The president's eldest son posted a link to a Federalist article suggesting Vindman is not a dedicated military officer and public servant, a line of questioning which Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) also pursued during an impeachment hearing.

"Let’s Stop Pretending Every Impeachment Witness Is A Selfless Hero," Trump Jr. tweeted, quoting the piece's headline.

‘I’m an American’: Lt Col Vindman laughs off GOP counsel’s attempts to question his loyalty

Published

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman laughed off questions about an offer by a Ukrainian official to serve as that country's defense minister.

The Soviet-born Vindman, who emigrated to the U.S. as a child and later served in the Iraq War, agreed that a Ukrainian official had offered him the government position three times during an official visit for the inauguration of the country's new president, Volodymyr Zelensky.

"I don't know (why the position was offered), but every single time I dismissed it," Vindman said. "Upon returning I notified my chain of command and the appropriate counter-intelligence folks about the offer."
