The very serious media reports: “It’s unclear why Morss had the Lego set.”
The FBI has reportedly found a “fully constructed” Lego brand toy model of the U.S. Capitol in the home of one of the alleged January 6th rioters. The media is treating this story as very, very serious.
We live in such dumb times.
Jordan Williams reports at The Hill:
FBI seized ‘fully constructed’ US Capitol Lego set from home of alleged rioter
The FBI seized a “fully constructed” Lego set of the U.S. Capitol from the home of an alleged insurrectionist.
Prosecutors detailed the finding in a court document for Robert Morss, who was arrested on June 11 at his home in Glenshaw, Pa.
The government argued that Morss should be detained from court pending trial.
According to the court filing dated July 2, law enforcement recovered clothing and other items from Morss’s home that match what he carried on Jan. 6. Among the items were a “’Don’t Tread on Me’ flag, a neck gaiter, a military utility bag, a black tourniquet, and military fatigues.”
In addition, “law enforcement also recovered a fully constructed U.S. Capitol Lego set,” prosecutors wrote.
It’s unclear why Morss had the Lego set.
Jamie Ross of the Daily Beast calls it an “unusual piece of evidence.” That’s one way of putting it:
Riot Leader Had ‘Fully Constructed U.S. Capitol Lego Set’ at Home, FBI Says
Federal investigators seized an unusual piece of evidence from a Pennsylvania man indicted last month for his role in the Capitol riot—a Lego replica of the building he allegedly stormed. Robert Morss, 27, is accused of leading fellow rioters in what prosecutors say was “one of the most intense and prolonged clashes” with officers on Jan. 6.
This is not the Babylon Bee or The Onion, this is real.

So the FBI is finding Capitol lego sets but hasn’t found the person who laid pipe bombs at the RNC & DNC…

OK so maybe the “insurrectionists” weren’t armed, didn’t have plans to kidnap lawmakers, didn’t bring zip ties, didn’t kill any cops, but one of them … had Legos! https://t.co/IkuU7l1Ss9

American citizens have been held in solitary confinement without bail or trial for months, and this is what we’re talking about. It’s like we’re living in an episode of the Twilight Zone.
