Jonathon Moseley, who formerly represented Oath Keepers defendant Kelly Meggs, said a recording that the Jan. 6 Committee claims is radio traffic between members of the group is nothing of the sort. Rather, Moseley said that it's a snippet of a 2.5-hour recording of people "watching TV," The Epoch Times reports.
"The Select Committee has obtained a recording of communications over a walkie-talkie app among Oath Keepers who were inside the Capitol and others who were sharing intelligence from elsewhere. Listen to how they reacted to President Trump’s 2:38 tweet in real-time," says a tweet with audio and a video clip of some purported Oath Keepers members inside the Capitol."

But Moseley said that the committee has fabricated evidence.
“I can speak from personal, direct, first-hand knowledge that this is a 2-hour, 20-minute recording of people watching TV,” Moseley told The Epoch Times in a statement earlier this week. “This is NOT Oath Keepers at the Capitol.”
The outlet reported further:
Defense attorneys in several Oath Keepers criminal cases have complained to the courts for months that these kinds of utterances from the Jan. 6 Select Committee will poison the jury pool, making it impossible for defendants to get a fair trial in the heavily Democratic District of Columbia. Numerous Oath Keepers motions for trial delays or changes of venue have been denied.
The controversial Zello transmissions were under court seal when the Jan. 6 Committee published its Twitter post on Sept. 15.
Elmer Stewart Rhodes III, the founder of Oath Keepers, along with four other defendants—Kelly Meggs, Jessica Watkins, Kenneth Harrelson, and Thomas Caldwell -- are the highest-profile members of the group set to go on trial Sept. 27.
“The J6 Committee is operating as a partisan campaign PAC,” Moseley noted. “Its public relations releases are not legislative actions. It is a Democrat campaign PAC for the November 2022 elections.”
The communications occurred over a cellphone app known as Zello, which mimics push-to-talk walkie-talkie functions, "except that it uses cellular networks and internet connectivity to link users," the outlet reported. The app functions like Nextel push-to-talk phones that were popularized in the 1990s.
Prosecutors have claimed that Watkins is heard using Zello, but there are no records connecting her or her phone to the app. Also, there is no Zello user account in her name or linked to her phone. But of course, that doesn't matter; the highly partisan committee is only carrying out the whims of the overtly politicized Justice Department and FBI, according to a growing number of whistleblowers.
As for the Jan. 6 'insurrection,' it very clearly was a false flag operation. J. Michael Waller, who is trained to spot such operations and who was at the Capitol that day, wrote about what he saw in a piece for The Federalist a week later:
This is all political theater aimed at demonizing and persecuting Americans who support Donald Trump and his agenda, period.
