Veteran Arrested Near Obama’s Home Indicted on Gun Charges

It’s official… the hammer is being dropped on the man that was arrested outside of Obama’s house recently.

Taylor Taranto, who was also photographed at the January 6 Capitol riot, has been indicted on federal firearms charges. This is in addition to the misdemeanor charges he faces from the riot, reported NPR.

Taranto is also a Navy veteran.

Trump Watching

This is a case that could have repercussions for Donald Trump at some point.

This is because Taranto made his move on Obama’s house after having reposted a Truth Social post by Donald Trump that allegedly included Barack Obama’s address.

Dems and liberals have already embraced the idea that Trump uses social media to issue orders to his supporters, so it is not exactly a stretch that Trump would somehow face charges as an accomplice of some sort if Taranto is found guilty.

As a matter of fact, the judge that ruled in the case, while not naming Donald Trump, seemed to imply that Taranto was following orders, all but handing the defense team its strategy.

I don’t know if this is a good thing or not, but Taranto has a history of medical disorders linked to his time serving this country. The Military Times reported, “Guevara has said that her client had been receiving mental health treatment to overcome trauma that he experienced during military service. He deployed to Iraq while serving in the Navy and was driving a combat vehicle in a convoy that was hit by enemy missiles, she said.”

Authorities were already tracking Taranto when he headed to Obama’s house for his activity at the January 6 riot. He had gotten their ears further up when he started doing live streams, in one video, claiming he was on a “one-way mission,” suggesting that he would blow up his van at the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

When authorities took Taranto into custody, he had three weapons (two guns and a machete) and about 400 rounds of ammunition.

I am telling you, my friends, watch this case closely because if they can, prosecutors and Democrats will find a way to tie this into Trump to add yet another legal problem to the very high stack he currently has on his desk.
