Tell me you're a criminal without telling me you're a criminal.

Hunter Walker at Rolling Stone reports that sources told him that some of the organizers for the ‘Stop the Steal’ rally on Jan. 6 allegedly used difficult-to-trace burner phones for their most “high level” communications with former President Donald Trump’s team. The burner phones were reportedly purchased with cash. Criminals often use burner phones because it makes it difficult for law enforcement to track them. Kylie Jane Kremer, executive director of Women for America First and daughter of Amy Kremer, appears to be in this up to her eyeballs.

“Kylie Kremer, a top official in the “March for Trump” group that helped plan the Ellipse rally, directed an aide to pick up three burner phones days before Jan. 6, according to three sources who were involved in the event,” the outlet reports. ‘One of the sources, a member of the “March for Trump” team, says Kremer insisted the phones be purchased using cash and described this as being “of the utmost importance.”‘

“The three sources said Kylie Kremer took one of the phones and used it to communicate with top White House and Trump campaign officials, including Eric Trump, the president’s second-oldest son, who leads the family’s real-estate business; Lara Trump, Eric’s wife and a former senior Trump campaign consultant; Mark Meadows, the former White House chief of staff; and Katrina Pierson, a Trump surrogate and campaign consultant,” the report continues.

Amy Kremer, who helped found the Tea Party movement over a decade ago, was also reportedly given a burner phone. It’s unclear who the third burner phone was for.

“That was when the planning for the event on the Ellipse was happening, she (Kylie Kremer) needed burner phones in order to communicate with high-level people, is how she put it,” the March For Trump team member told the outlet.

The three sources told Rolling Stone that some of the most crucial planning conversations between top rally organizers and Trump’s inner circle took place on those burner phones. “They were planning all kinds of stuff, marches, and rallies. Any conversation she had with the White House or Trump family took place on those phones,” the team member said of Kylie Kremer.

Kylie Kremer has this tweet pinned:

Trump retweeted that. And the “calvary” did come, and that led to the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection after the twice-impeached one-term president whipped his supporters into a frenzy.
