Like Josh says, this did not, in fact, age well at all. Based off the information he received from "Weaponized Autism" - who I'm 99.9% confident is Conan Hayes - Byrne thought Lindell was going to foil the deep state by presenting us with the mythical PCAPs we'd been promised
First, why do I think Weaponized Autism = Conan?
In The Deep Rig book, Byrne is dining with WA, "75", and others on Thanksgiving 2020 when they get word about Antrim, MI. The book jumps to the Antrim, visit, where we know Conan was on 11/27
That's the first and only mention of WA and "75" by name (or at least pseudonym) in the book. But Byrne's pre-Symposium blog post has some additional details. The description matches: Conan came up from a pro-surfing background, and seemed to be mostly self taught.
With all this in mind, we can deobfuscate Byrne's article into something that actually makes sense: a (rough) timeline of how Dennis Montgomery's bunk PCAP data made it from Montgomery to the Symposium.
Er, looks like the quoted tweets unavailable at the moment, so here's the article it links: https://www.deepcapture.com/2021/08/i-predict-in-mike-lindells-south-dakota-reveal-this-week-data-will-not-be-shown-fake/
First, let's establish some provenance for the PCAPs. In The Deep Rig P72, Byrne discusses "packet traffic" that was provided to him by a super secret source he can't name. He even provides a spreadsheet with data: https://www.deepcapture.com/wp-content/uploads/US-Election-Fraud-2020_General.xlsx
This "shine a light and reveal those trails in the cyber-fog" business is SO SO dumb.
Also, what is this second passage even?
The data that Lindell eventually up on his big stupid website looks like this (last two pictures)
It's the same damn data, just formatted or split differently.
Well, Byrne received the data sometime in Jan 2020 and thought it would be enough get the "federals" to live stream a recount of 6 states
Byrne sends Conan and someone else to deliver the PCAPs to Lindell, they convinced Lindell the PCAPS were legit, and then Lindell met with Trump days later.
Referring to supposed evidence of Chinese interference, he says "Jan 9th is when I got that piece of evidence, you know where I got it...I got one piece from him [Brannon] and others from other sources"
They show the "evidence" to Lindell, who buys it and sets up a meeting on 1/15 to show Trump.
It's unclear if Lindell ever got that meeting with Trump - he says he was shooed out of the WH
I swear to god if anyone ever describes reviewing data like this again, I will face palm my hand right through the back of my head. Grossest possible way to explain something as mundane as "he looked at the data" imo.
Last tweet was a trick tweet: nothing will damage their credibility because most people that have bought into their evidence of voter fraud have been conditioned to be ok with goal posts that can't seem to stay in one spot.
So that's it. Most of the information in the thread has been around for a while in one form or another, but I was stoked to be able to piece together a rough timeline that explains the provenance of the PCAPs.
If you want further reading, I highly recommend the Dominion V Byrne case, specifically the initial complaint (1) and their opposition to Byrne's Motion to Dismiss (2), which contains these gems.
- Montgomery gave Byrne the fake PCAPs in Jan 2020
- Byrne couldn't meet w/Trump, so he gave the fake PCAPs to Conan
- 1/9 - Conan delivered them to Lindell
- 1/15 - Lindell tried to present them to Trump
- Lindell hyped them up for 8 months & that backfired spectacularly
