Video Destroys Bowman’s Argument That He Didn’t Mean to Set Off the Fire Alarm

Video Destroys Bowman’s Argument That He Didn’t Mean to Set Off the Fire Alarm

Liar, liar! Pants on fire!

As if we needed more proof of a double standard.

People from January 6th have had their lives ruined for practically nothing.

Now we know for sure that socialist Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) got away with a felony similar to the one those on January 6th were charged with.

Bowman should face charges of obstructing an official Congressional proceeding when he pulled a fire alarm in the Capitol before a vote on a spending bill.

Instead, Bowman accepted a plea deal on misdemeanor charges.

Bowman claimed that he was in a rush to get to the vote.

The new video does not show that at all. Not even a little bit. No reasonable doubt.


The video shows Bowman ripping off the emergency exit signs from the door, pulling the alarm, and scurrying away like a little kid who knows he’ll get a whooping for doing something wrong.

Bowman literally committed a felony:

Obstructing Congressional or Administrative Proceedings (18 U.S.C. 1505)

Section 1505 outlaws obstructing congressional or federal administrative proceedings, a crime punishable by imprisonment not more than five years (not more than eight years if the offense involves domestic or international terrorism). The crime has three essential elements. First, there must be a proceeding pending before a department or agency of the United States. Second, the defendant must be aware of the pending proceeding. Third, the defendant must have intentionally endeavored corruptly to influence, obstruct or impede the pending proceeding. Section 1505 offenses are not RICO or money laundering predicate offenses. Conspiracy to obstruct administrative or congressional proceedings may be prosecuted under 18 U.S.C. 371, and the general aiding and abetting, accessory after the fact, and misprision statutes are likely to apply with equal force in the case of obstruction of an administrative or congressional proceeding.

    AND, because he is a lying progressive, he thinks it was all in the past, and we should move on…

    From colleague Tyler Olson. Dem NY Rep Bowman when asked about fire alarm video where it doesn’t look like he’s trying to exit the building. Bowman: “That’s in the past man. I’m not talking about that anymore. Let’s talk about moving forward.”

Come on. Everyone knows that it’s not illegal if you remove the sign. The state trooper will look on with impotent frustration when you just calmly take down the speed limit sign and drive away.

What is most stunning is that this Representative is so dumb that he thought he could get away with it. Maybe an IQ test before they run for an office?

    More than half of Congress are well below average intelligence. Usually Democrats in ‘safe’ districts, but there’s some unbelievably stupid Republicans, too.

    It would be comical if it weren’t coupled with SO MUCH ARROGANCE.

      LeftWingLock in reply to Olinser. | October 26, 2023 at 6:30 pm

      Half the people in the USA are below average. So it’s fair to say the Congress actually represents America.

    LeftWingLock in reply to thad_the_man. | October 26, 2023 at 6:23 pm

    Respectfully, he has gotten away with it. There will be no significant punishment (maybe a $250 fine paid for out of his office account) and he achieved his goal.

    nordic prince in reply to thad_the_man. | October 26, 2023 at 6:24 pm

    Not sure if the Congresscritters that have an IQ above room temperature are any better, frankly.

    diver64 in reply to thad_the_man. | October 27, 2023 at 3:26 am

    Did you miss the part where he just got away with it?

    leoamery in reply to thad_the_man. | October 27, 2023 at 7:04 am

    But he did get away with it. Ask any J6er who has been through the legal meatgrinder.

    inspectorudy in reply to thad_the_man. | October 27, 2023 at 10:03 am

    He may be dumb but he did get away with it! He got a little fine, which was probably paid for by the anti-Semite Jefferies, and will suffer no political repercussions from it. On the contrary, he will be hailed as a hero by the left.

    Petrushka in reply to thad_the_man. | October 27, 2023 at 11:13 am

    He did get away withe it.

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to thad_the_man. | October 28, 2023 at 2:49 pm

    What is even more stunning is that this Representative is so dumb that he didn’t apparently know that every entrance/exit into and out of the building had its own CCTV camera(s) recording everyone and everything that happens at each door. (Or perhaps he did know and simply thought that the video would be withheld to cover his dumb stunt.)

    (And wouldn’t the removal and disposal of the signs that were on the door be a crime in itself? You know, destruction of pubic property or some such violation of the law?)

So who’s responsible for charging him?
The new Speaker, perhaps?

He was fined for his “Insurrection” and nothing more. He set out to interrupt Congress in its official duties and he gets a fine! The J6 people did it and they got years and fines!

Pretty interesting how this video wasn’t publicly released until AFTER they had safely locked up their precious plea bargain for a slap on the wrist.

And by ‘interesting’, I mean ‘pathetically predictable’.

Bowman should face charges of obstructing an official Congressional proceeding

Bullshit. He didn’t obstruct any proceeding. There’s no reasonable way he could have obstructed any proceeding. It’s possible that he’s stupid enough to think his actions would obstruct a proceeding, but there’s not a shred of evidence that he had such an intent.

And that’s beside the fact that that’s not what that statute means at all, and nobody ever imagined it meant that until after the Capitol riot. At the time the statute was passed, everyone was clear about what “obstructing” meant: Destroying evidence that the accused knew Congress was about to subpoena. Nobody imagined that having a protest that interrupted a proceeding would count as “obstructing” for this purpose. So the charges against Capitol rioters were invalid. But even under the new interpretation no such charges are available against Bowman.

I have no idea why he did this. His explanation is clearly false. But so is the one that Republicans have been pushing.

    Ironclaw in reply to Milhouse. | October 26, 2023 at 7:55 pm

    If they want to push their false charges against our people, then we should push our false charges against their people and make it even. The only way you are ever going to get the Communists to go back to normal rules is to make it costly and painful for them. Being nice will not work, playing Fair will not work.

      Milhouse in reply to Ironclaw. | October 26, 2023 at 8:00 pm

      True, but (a) we’re in no position to push any charges, and (b) even under their interpretation there’s simply nothing to indicate he intended to disrupt congress. The fact is he didn’t disrupt it, and there’s no reasonable way he could have disrupted it.

      Nobody in the Capitol even knew about it, unless they’d just come over from Cannon.

        oneoclock in reply to Milhouse. | October 26, 2023 at 9:18 pm

        The fact is he didn’t disrupt it, and there’s no reasonable way he could have disrupted it.

        You mean the fire dept showing up won’t interrupt a proceeding?

          Milhouse in reply to oneoclock. | October 26, 2023 at 9:21 pm

          The fire department showing up where? Why would the fire department showing up at the Cannon interrupt anything at the Capitol? The plain and indisputable fact is that it didn’t; what makes you think he thought it would?

I don’t care as much about Bowman as I do of the person who put him up to it, gave the order. Subpoena his texts and emails, find out who’s behind this “insurrection”.

    Milhouse in reply to Camperfixer. | October 26, 2023 at 9:19 pm

    What makes you think anyone put him up to it, or gave him any order? To what purpose? Even if you think he’s so stupid as to have thought he could disrupt the vote in congress by such a stunt, how can you think someone smart enough to put him up to it could also have been so stupid?

      Camperfixer in reply to Milhouse. | October 26, 2023 at 10:23 pm

      Or he could be as you say, yet another person who truly is that dumb…which is scary that’s what is leading our country. My Christian underpinnings do think, “maybe he was having a bad day and it was a mistake”. Problem with that is he didn’t own it, instead he tried to white wash it away by lying…so more likely he was put up to it or truly is a stupid person. A third grader knows what a fire alarm box on the wall is.

        Milhouse in reply to Camperfixer. | October 26, 2023 at 11:13 pm

        I still don’t understand why you think anyone put him up to it. That implies there was some purpose to it, and I don’t understand what purpose that could be. The idea that he was trying to disrupt the congressional vote that was going on at the same time is completely without foundation. So what was his purpose? Who knows? And without knowing the purpose there’s no reason to suppose anyone put him up to it.

      leoamery in reply to Milhouse. | October 27, 2023 at 7:11 am

      “… how can you think someone smart enough to put him up to it could also have been so stupid?”

      See Biden, Hunter, Menendez bob. Are you saying that these two couldn’t possibly have been so stupid, ergo they are innocent?

        Milhouse in reply to leoamery. | October 29, 2023 at 8:29 am

        Either they’re too stupid to put him up to it, or they’re not so stupid as to think it would achieve anything. They can’t be both.

I think @Milhouse has the right of it. He is obviously not the brightest candle. He may have thought he was going to delay something but stupidity isn’t a crime. Just like you can’t be charged with buying weed if it is actually grass clippings.

    Milhouse in reply to Gremlin1974. | October 26, 2023 at 11:16 pm

    He may have thought he was going to delay something, but I can’t for the life of me understand why so many people seem convinced of that when there seems to be no basis for it whatsoever. It’s pure speculation that some person pulled out of their nether regions and the whole Republican Party ran with.

    If he had delayed the vote, or at least if there were some reasonable chance that he could have, then it might be reasonable to speculate that that’s what he intended. But that’s not the case.

The House should censure him for lying about his actions that day in that statement he released to the public.

Bowman is a documented racist who blames all his problems in life on white people.

Woke trash.

Those who feel the urge to do something about Bowman need to stop bawling about ‘censure’ and ‘expulsion’ and read Bowman’s plea agreement. From Axios:

“Driving the news: Bowman’s office said Wednesday they had reached an agreement with the D.C. attorney general for the charges to be dropped in three months in exchange for a formal apology and a $1,000 fine.

The charges will be dismissedas long as Bowman abides by the conditions of a three-month probation agreement, the attorney general’s office said Wednesday.

Bowman has a habit of getting into shouting matches with people, viz:

It should be straightforward to provoke Bowman into a confrontation, ending in him taking a poke at someone—thereby violating this plea agreement. The DC Atty Genl will try to ignore any such violation, but there’s a good chance the Atty Genl can be gouged into doing unto Bowman what the feds did to the J6ers.

E Howard Hunt | October 27, 2023 at 8:31 am

Not a felony or even a misdemeanor, but a cri de coeur of an historically marginalized person of color. Join me, my friends, in embracing Brother Bowman, and assisting him through this very trying period.

Being a idiot isn’t a defense, he knew about alarms like every school official

Holding a black person accountable for their actions is racist and proof that the system is racist. You can’t expect that a black lawmaker to follow the rules, rules that were created by racist whites. They need special dispensation for their behavior.
