The more that comes out about FBI corruption, the uglier it gets.
……if you want to know why officials who report directly to Nancy Pelosi repeatedly turned down security at the Capitol on January 6th even after protesters were inside the doors of the Capitol, if you want to know what the hell that’s about, you’re un- American. You’re a traitor. You hate the country.
……it’s fair to wonder what else they are lying about and covering up. It turns out there is still an awful lot of things we don’t know about January 6th despite all the talking about it. For example, why is the Justice Department still tonight hiding thousands of hours of surveillance footage from the Capitol that day? What could possibly be on that tape that we’re not allowed to see?
Who killed Ashli Babbitt? And what was the justification for killing her? Government agents get to shoot unarmed political protesters in the neck for trespassing and we’re not allowed to know who did it or why? Is that really the new standard?
Does that same standard apply to BLM protesters, too, or just to people who voted for Donald Trump, people whose lives clearly don’t matter? And most critically of all, what role did the F.B.I. play that day?
We know for certain that there were F.B.I. informants in the crowd at the Capitol. How many of them made it inside the Capitol and then encouraged others to break the law? Don’t pretend the F.B.I. doesn’t stage crimes, we know for a fact they do it regularly. We know for a fact they did it right before the election in Michigan for political effect. We will have details on that in a moment.
So, what exactly was the F.B.I.’s role in January 6th? And why can’t we know?
With some prodding, Republicans might have asked about some of this. None of these are trick questions, they’re not even partisan questions. They are entirely fair questions and they are important. Every American has a right to hear the answers and hear them immediately.
January 6th is being used as a pretext to strip millions of disfavored Americans of their core constitutional rights. We are witnessing the most aggressive crackdown on civil liberties in our lifetime. That is not an exaggeration.
……So, immediately after January 6th, Pelosi called the Army and built a wall ironically around the building, put bureaus of the Capitol Police in other states, her own Pretorian Guard et cetera. So, she is clearly for law enforcement when they protect her.
Christopher Wray refused to get on a conference call about preparation for January 6th, before it happened. They knew it was coming. They didn’t protect the building. They let the protesters in.
The F.B.I. has a long history of setting up crimes. They just did it in Michigan and we’re going to get into it in a second. Why isn’t there a good faith investigation into the F.B.I.’s behavior? Or do Republicans somehow trust the F.B.I.?
……Meanwhile, we’re learning much more about the F.B.I.’s involvement in another alleged act of domestic terrorism. That would be the plot last year to kidnap the governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer.
Now, prominent Democrats at the time, very much including Whitmer herself blamed Trump for this alleged plan. So, what was the plan?
Well BuzzFeed, of all places has just confirmed that the F.B.I. had a quote, “hand” in nearly every aspect of the alleged plot, starting with its inception. In other words, the F.B.I. helped plan it. One F.B.I. informant organized meetings to kidnap the Governor, another informant quote, “prodded” the alleged mastermind of the kidnapping plot to advance his plan.
And texts from an F.B.I. agent directed an informant to draw people into the conspiracy. In the end, it looks like there were more F.B.I. snitches, informants, people working with the F.B.I. involved in the plot than weren’t. It was an F.B.I. plot.
So, what does it suggest about January 6? Before you dismiss it as a conspiracy theory, we know there were F.B.I. informants in the crowd. We know that for certain. We’ll have a lot more on that tomorrow night.
Why can’t we know their involvement in January 6 now that we’re getting a sense of their involvement in this fake kidnapping plot?
The cop who murdered Ashli Babbitt is Michael Leroy Byrd. It’s the worst kept secret in this whole story. Secondly, the capitol cops don’t want to release all the video evidence because it would ruin the narrative.
The capitol cops have a history of misconduct.
A male Capitol Police officer allegedly used the department’s computer to solicit sex on Craigslist, send sexually explicit emails and attempt to buy an illicit drug from Qatar, according to filings in one officer’s gender discrimination lawsuit that summarizes internal department documents.
Another male officer allegedly stored sex toys in his Capitol Police vehicle, photographed himself masturbating, and took photos of a handcuffed, partially nude woman in the back of the car, the lawsuit states. A male commander allegedly asked a female subordinate to have sex with him in his hotel room.
The officers all received some form of punishment, described by an expert on police conduct as light. None of them were demoted or fired.
……The allegations have sparked little action so far from Congress, which oversees the Capitol Police and allocates taxpayer funds for its operations. The force is charged with protecting Congress, including lawmakers, employees, visitors and facilities. A review by the department’s inspector general of disciplinary procedures, requested by a House committee, is ongoing.
……Such officer misconduct information is closely guarded by the department and is difficult to obtain because the Capitol Police is part of the legislative branch and thus exempt from the Freedom of Information Act. That means there is no law compelling public disclosure.
……Capitol Police officers have a well-documented history of leaving their guns in precarious situations. That trend is more widespread than previously known, according to the disciplinary reports in the court filings.
On Feb. 8, 2017, a parking lot attendant found an unattended, fully loaded assault rifle that was left by a Capitol Police officer. The attendant picked up the firearm and gave it to a sergeant in the department. The officer received a 30-day suspension.
An officer left his loaded gun near prisoners. On April 20, 2017, the officer put his gun in a lockbox where the Capitol Police process prisoners and failed to secure the lock. He was given a 15-day suspension.
In August 2016, an officer left his loaded handgun unsecured and unattended in a gym bag in the basement of a house that he shared with other people. In one instance, the gun fell out of the bag. Witnesses said they often saw the gun unattended. The Capitol Police officer was given a 28-day suspension.
An officer left a bag with a fully loaded Glock magazine, handcuffs and security pins in the men’s sixth-floor restroom of the Ford House Office Building on March 25, 2015. Capitol Police officers from the House Division called in a suspicious package alert in response to finding the bag. The officer who left the bag got a two-day suspension. In another instance, an officer let his daughter hold his weapon; he received a formal reprimand called a CP-534.
One of those weapons violations was committed by Michael Byrd. These are taxpayer-funded public servants. They should not be allowed to murder with impunity or be exempt from accountability.
The FBI framed the 6 January MAGA protesters by inserting undercover agents and informants in the crowd to encourage violence. It backfired, but that’s not stopping the Feds from persecuting people who simply wandered the hallways, stood outside the building, and peacefully protested.
The FBI’s involvement in the Whitmer kidnap plot is just as despicable.
The government has documented at least 12 confidential informants who assisted the sprawling investigation. The trove of evidence they helped gather provides an unprecedented view into American extremism, laying out in often stunning detail the ways that anti-government groups network with each other and, in some cases, discuss violent actions.
An examination of the case by BuzzFeed News also reveals that some of those informants, acting under the direction of the FBI, played a far larger role than has previously been reported. Working in secret, they did more than just passively observe and report on the actions of the suspects. Instead, they had a hand in nearly every aspect of the alleged plot, starting with its inception. The extent of their involvement raises questions as to whether there would have even been a conspiracy without them.
A longtime government informant from Wisconsin, for example, helped organize a series of meetings around the country where many of the alleged plotters first met one another and the earliest notions of a plan took root, some of those people say. The Wisconsin informant even paid for some hotel rooms and food as an incentive to get people to come.
The Iraq War vet, for his part, became so deeply enmeshed in a Michigan militant group that he rose to become its second-in-command, encouraging members to collaborate with other potential suspects and paying for their transportation to meetings. He prodded the alleged mastermind of the kidnapping plot to advance his plan, then baited the trap that led to the arrest.
The FBI needs to be dismantled from the top down. The criminal malfeasants in the agency should be indicted and prosecuted. We know that won’t happen because agencies weaponized by Dem regimes trample all over the Constitution while Congress does nothing. All the hot air and indignation during oversight hearings are a dog and pony show.
