<p>It appears at least one of those Senators has now been identified.</p><p>The video itself would be interesting to those investigating the insurrection and Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the election, but it’s far more interesting given <a href=”” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>an article in the Omaha World Herald published January 6</a>, that reports a Republican exploring a run for governor of Nebraska, Charles Herbster, appears to have attended that same January 5 meeting.</p><p>The reporter who wrote the story posted this tweet about it Tuesday night:</p><blockquote class=”twitter-tweet”>
Since this Jan. 6 story is getting some run tonight from <a href=””>@SethAbramson</a>, here’s our reporting from the day of the <a href=”;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#CapitolRiots</a> involving potential <a href=”;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#Nebraska</a> gubernatorial candidate <a href=””>@CWHerbster</a>.<a href=””></a><br/>

They discussed how to pressure more members of Congress to object to the Electoral College results that made Joe Biden the winner.”</p><p>Abramson re-posted the clip to Twitter. It now has nearly 600,000 views, and jumped by 40,000 views in about 30 minutes. He suggests that one of the Senators Beck mentioned would have been Sen. Tommy Tuberville.</p><p>That detail becomes extremely important thanks to an article published Tuesday in the <a href=”” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>Alabama Political Reporter</a> headlined: “Trump appointee says Tuberville, RAGA director met with Trump family, top advisers on eve of Capitol attack.”</p><p>”The night before the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol, Alabama Republican Senator Tommy Tuberville and the then-director of the Republican Attorneys General Association met with then-President Donald Trump’s sons and close advisers, according to a social media post by a Nebraska Republican who at the time was a Trump administration appointee,” the article explains.</p><p>And it circles back to Herbster.</p><p>”Charles W. Herbster, who was then the national chairman of the Agriculture and Rural Advisory Committee in Trump’s administration, in a Facebook post at 8:33 p.m. on Jan. 5 said that he was standing ‘in the private residence of the President at Trump International with the following patriots who are joining me in a battle for justice and truth.'”</p><p><a href=”″ rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>International Business Times</a> obtained a copy of Herbster’s now-deleted Facebook post.</p><p>”According to Herbster’s post, the meeting’s attendees included Trump’s second-eldest son Eric Trump, former NSA advisor Michael Flynn, U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville, Peter Navarro, Corey Lewandowski, David Bossie, Adam Piper and the four names mentioned by Beck in his video (Beck mentions some of the other names cited by Herbster in the caption of his photo outside the Trump hotel),” IBT reports.</p><p>”Tuberville <a href=”” rel=”nofollow noopener” target=”_blank”>denied</a> he was ever at the Trump International Hotel on Jan. 5 but an Instagram photo does place him there at the D.C. hotel on the date, as claimed by Beck and Herbster.”</p><p>Here’s that viral video:</p><blockquote class=”twitter-tweet”>

Donald Trump, Jr. even <a href=””>gleefully recorded a video of then-President Trump scoping out the audience</a> on large TV screens right before going out to deliver his speech at the “Save America” rally, hours before many of those same supporters marched to the Capitol to mount a seditious insurrection.</p>
