If you build it, they will come to DC: FBI finds Lego model of Capitol in the house of the leader of the January 6 riot
If you’re planning an insurgency, maybe put your toys away before you leave the house, just in case you get arrested for committing a crime against the United States of America.
FBI investigators seized a “fully built US Capitol Lego set” from the home of Robert Morss, 27, along with a notebook with instructions on how to create a “hometown militia”, files judicial published by The smoking gun revealed. Morss is said to have led rioters in “one of the most intense and protracted clashes” against law enforcement trying to contain mobs of rioters, according to the media outlet.
The Army Ranger report, who became a substitute teacher, was indicted last month for his alleged role in the uprising and charged with assault, resisting or obstructing officers, civil unrest, theft of American property and obstruction, according to federal records.
Morss wore tactical gear and a “MAGA” hat as he led other Trump supporters who attempted to break through the Capitol’s Lower West Terrace, at one point tearing a riot shield from an officer in the Department of metropolitan police, prosecutors alleged in court documents cited in the article.
The Pennsylvania man “prepared for violence and then repeatedly carried out violent mob attacks,” prosecutors reportedly wrote. The Morss militia’s to-do list included preparations like “ambush” and “combat drills,” according to the report.
I guarantee the Capitol Riots leader who bought and built the US Capitol Lego set to keep in his house before the attack told his friends he had the building plans and gave them the Legos instructions .

By recreating the Capitol, Morss was able to get an aerial view of the building’s layout to help chart the path of the crowds once security bypassed.
Morss, who remains in custody behind bars, also wrote reminders to “Bring Assault Rifle” and “4 Magazines”.
Twitter was having a lot of fun with the news of the Legos seizure, which some GOP members are trying to turn into something it isn’t.
