“I have sources on the ground saying that the reservists are being activated right now, starting yesterday in smaller and mid-size cities,” journalist Matthew Tyrmand told Steve Bannon on Dec. 2 on his “War Room” podcast.
“You can already see videos of tanks being transported to strategic points and chokeholds around the country. I think by next Wednesday or Thursday, (the Generals) are going to put a letter in front of Bolsonaro and say, sign this and activate us. We believe we have to act right now, according to the constitution and go after these (voting) machines, arrest these judges, and then the house of cards will fall,” Tyrmand said.
Videos appear to show heavy armor, howitzers, and APCs deployed throughout Brazil.
