A high-ranking member of Donald Trump’s 2024 election machinery in New Hampshire was part of the infamous January 6th riots. But after what he said to police, he’s probably just hoping he doesn’t get pulled over. Here is the full story.
Heat Is On
The 2024 election season wasn’t the only thing heating up during the late summer of 2023.
Trump’s Minions on Hot Seat
As former president Donald Trump faced his own indictment in Georgia, members of the Proud Boys who stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021, were facing their own legal battles.
Citizens on Patrol
And there were plenty of vigilante groups on the lookout for anyone who might have been involved in the failed attempt to overturn the 2020 election.
Hunting for Sedition
One of the most well-known and successful of those groups are the Sedition Hunters, who do much of their work on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Shocking X Video
A video posted to the platform in August of 2023 doesn’t show Teflon Don himself, but it hits pretty close to home for the 2024 presidential hopeful.
Fake Patriot Clown
In the video, a young man in what can only be described as a fake-patriot winterized clown suit is standing in front of the Capitol building.
Keep America Great?
He’s wearing a “Keep America Great” Santa hat and a garish red, white, and blue suit and tie, adorned with snowflakes.
“Stop the Steal”
The young man is also waving a “Stop the Steal” flag, flashing the slogan that drove the rioters to their criminal attack on Washington that day.
He Had a Message for Cops
And the man in the video had a jarring message for law enforcement, particularly the officers who put their lives on the line to combat the mass of wayward humanity at the Capitol.
“Go Hang Yourself”
“If you are a police officer and are going to abide by unconstitutional bulls***, I want you to do me a favor right now and go hang yourself, because you’re a piece of s***,” the rioter said.
It’s Nothing New
That’s the sort of sentiment that the American public has seen in countless videos from that day as the years have rolled by.
Young Republican Star
But what’s really striking about this particular verbal attack is that the young man in the video has become a rising star among Republicans.
A Cog in Trump’s Wheel
In fact, Dylan Quattrucci is the deputy state director of Trump’s New Hampshire campaign.
It’s a Critical State
As the state that hosts the nation’s first primary ballots, New Hampshire is always super important in setting the tone for each party’s race to a nomination.
No Denying It
In the aftermath of the video surfacing, several people who know Quattrucci have confirmed that he is indeed the man taking cops to task.
Cops Know Who He Is
And police officers themselves have taken notice of Quattrucci.
Dunn Is Done With Him
U.S. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn has been a key witness in trials targeting several rioters, and he took direct aim at Quattrucci after the video came to light.
They’re All Failures
In particular, Dunn reminded Quattrucci that he and all of his fellow conspirators were failures because their efforts to stop Joe Biden from taking office disintegrated.
Most of the credit for that failure, Dunn says, goes to his fellow officers.
He also points out that four of those officers did indeed end up committing suicide.
In the Crosshairs
So, for whatever short-term gratification Quattrucci got out of his verbal attack on police, he’s now in the national crosshairs himself.
Does He Have a Place?
And, with Trump leaning heavily on a pro-cop sentiment, it’s hard to see how Quattrucci’s viewpoint could fit into the new campaign
