Big League Politics can confirm that several wealthy benefactors are attempting to contact Shawn Brooks, the user who uploaded the viral Nancy Pelosi meme in which she appeared even less coherent than usual, to help him sue Daily Beast, CNN, Facebook, and others involved in his recent doxxing as he announces his legal defense fund on GoFundMe.
Brooks was doxxed by Daily Beast writer and former black hat hacker Kevin Poulsen after he uploaded the viral clip of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appearing to stammer and slur her words more than usual.
Poulsen apparently colluded with Facebook to dox Brooks, a story that was picked up and repeated by CNN.
Reports initially indicated Poulsen also created the viral meme, but Brooks denies this. Brooks also denied he is the user who posted the video to his Facebook pages, though Poulsen, quoting Facebook, claims Brooks used a sock puppet account to post it.
It was rumored that wealthy benefactors with significant experience in legal matters regarding the mainstream media and social media were seeking to help Brooks sue early this morning, and now Big League Politics can report that one such benefactor has independently contacted our senior reporter, Peter D’Abrosca, to confirm they are actively attempting to contact Brooks to provide financial and legal support.
One of these benefactors just reached out to me – without prompting – and confirmed this report.
This is a very serious person who is experienced in lawfare… https://t.co/PWsdm5Lf97

This comes as Brooks announced his own legal defense fund via GoFundMe, writing in the fund’s description that he is “looking at my options for possible legal action against anyone who was associated in publishing that inaccurate trash article about me, misquoting me and accusing me of being the creator of the Speaker Pelosi video that went viral.”
Brooks is already making progress toward his goal of $10,000 to sue the Daily Beast and others at press time, with donations ranging from $5 to $200.
Last night, Big League Politics revealed that Poulsen’s history is perhaps more colorful than Brooks, an African American who has worked a series of manual labor jobs and became an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump after witnessing the destruction of the United States economy under the guidance of President Barack Obama.
Poulsen is a former black hat hacker who was convicted of several crimes, stood accused of hacking into United States Army and FBI systems, and attempting to steal critical intelligence. He served five years in prison, and another several on probation. Poulsen was the first person to be banned from accessing the Internet as punishment for cyber crimes, and was only allowed access after persuading his parole officer in 2004.
Facebook has thus far refused to provide comment to Big League Politics regarding its part in helping Poulsen dox Brooks or any possible litigation.
FAKE NEWS DEBUNKED: ‘Zip Tie Guy’ at Capitol Protest Merely Picked up the Restraints From a Table
It was a mostly-peaceful protest by ANTIFA/BLM standards.
One insidious piece of fake news that circulated widely after the Jan. 6 siege on the U.S. Capitol is that there was a protester with zip ties who was among the individuals who dared to enter the holy grounds on that fateful day.
This was used by dishonest left-wing pundits and lying government officials to claim that the Trump supporters were engaged in an insurrection and a coup on Jan. 6.
Larry Brock, the retired Air Force officer who stormed the Senate chamber with zip ties, intended to "take hostages," a prosecutor said.
"He means to kidnap, restrain, perhaps try, perhaps execute members of the U.S. government." https://t.co/3fxCibQ6WA

A retired Air Force officer who was part of the mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol last week carried plastic zip-tie handcuffs because he intended “to take hostages,” prosecutor says in a Texas court. https://t.co/Iy0E7jnsrm

However, it has since come out that there was not any individual who brought zip ties to the U.S. Capitol protest to kidnap federal officials.
After deceiving the public for weeks, prosecutors were forced to admit in court that a man seen with the alleged zip ties had actually taken plastic handcuffs from police. While this may be a crime, it shows that there was no harmful intent from the protesters, most of whom demonstrated peacefully in and around the U.S. Capitol.
Eric Munchel, a U.S. Capitol protester who has been maligned falsely as the ‘Zip Tie Guy,’ reportedly grabbed the handcuffs off from a table. The new court filing explains what occurred.
“At one point, MUNCHEL spots plastic handcuffs on a table inside a hallway in the Capitol. MUNCHEL exclaims, ‘zipties. I need to get me some of them motherf—ers,” and grabs several white plastic handcuffs from on top of a cabinet,” the filing states, adding: “As MUNCHEL and [his mother, Lisa Eisenhart,] are attempting to leave, Eisenhart says words to the effect of, ‘Don’t carry the zip ties, just get ’em out of their hand.'”
It appears that Munchel and his mother, Lisa Eisenhart, were simply trying to prevent the plastic handcuffs from being used to detain patriots at the scene. As the case is heard in court, more details about the case will be heard, and the full truth can be determined.
Big League Politics has attempted to debunk a lot of the spin, which is coming from liberals and conservatives alike, surrounding the Jan. 6 Capitol siege:
Less than a week after the infamous U.S. Capitol siege took place, many conservative talking heads – perhaps in an attempt to protect President Donald Trump from the nuclear fall-out – are claiming that ANTIFA terrorists were responsible for the mayhem that ultimately resulted in five people dead…
However, investigative work by Big League Politics shows that there is no real evidence showing that this event was promulgated or set up by ANTIFA and the political establishment.
In fact, there is more evidence showing that this was a spontaneous uprising of angry patriots who have been pushed past the breaking point.
As a reporter who was embedded in the thick of the chaotic scene, I personally witnessed protesters singing “God Bless America” and “I’m Proud to be an American” while they were being tear gassed and flash banged by authorities.
Protesters were risking life and limb to climb up scaffolding to wave the American flag and boldly display their patriotism. Chants included “USA! USA!” and “We the People,” with constitutional iconography being found everywhere…
Does this seem like the optics of an ANTIFA rally, or a pro-American uprising? Big Tech entities are scrambling to censor footage of the rally so that they can control the narrative about what actually took place, so people cannot understand this was a pro-freedom revival in the vein of the Founding Fathers.
Additionally, much of the “evidence” showing that prominent protesters seen inside the Capitol were ANTIFA has already been debunked.
While the Capitol siege may have been seen as destructive and drastic, what is really destructive and drastic is the behavior committed by Congress selling ordinary Americans out for decades. The Capitol demonstrators ought to be punished as harshly as the ANTIFA thugs who attacked Trump’s inauguration in 2017 for their mostly peaceful protest.
