Executive Summary

Ulrich was in communication with other defendants at least as early as Dec. 31, 2020, when he joined an invitation-only Signal group message titled “DC OP: Jan 6 21.”

Ulrich messaged the chat: “The more patriots the merrier ‘gonna be wild” and “Someone can tell me if I’m crazy but I’m planning on having a backpack for regular use and then a separate backpack with my ammo load out with some basics that I can [just] switch to is shit truly the fan blades…” He added, “I will be the guy running around with the budget AR.” On Jan. 1, Ulrich messaged co-defendant Joshua James on Signal and asked, “Hey we told to bring guns and maybe stage them in VA?? But you are showing hotels in DC for Alabama. Are we bring[ing] guns or no[.] If so how will that work?” James responded, “[We’re] working on a Farm location[.] Some are bringing long rifles some sidearms…I’m bringing sidearm.” Ulrich traveled to Washington on Jan. 4 and stayed at the Mayflower Hotel.
