At least 20 FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives “assets” were embedded in and around the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, according to recently revealed court filings.
The disclosure was made in a motion seeking to dismiss seditious conspiracy and obstruction charges against defendants in some of the most prominent January 6th criminal cases.
Additionally, in a recent letter sent to the attorneys of the 9 arrested Oath Keepers whose trial starts on Tuesday, the US government finally admitted in this letter that they were running Confidential Human Sources inside the Oath Keepers organization on January 6.
Based on the language of the motion, the government seeks to prevent the defense attorneys from asking about any other investigations or operations that the confidential human sources have been involved in.
The government also seeks to keep the identity of these confidential human sources private from the American public.
If this wasn’t enough, a criminal complaint against Fi Duong, along with several other affidavits confirming reporting by Revolver News also showed there were FBI agents around the capitol on January 6th, likely coercing people to storm the building. The infiltration of groups in attempts to entrap members is something the FBI admits to doing often.
On the morning of January 6, Fi Doung and a friend of his introduced themselves to an undercover Metropolitan Police officer in the vicinity of the capitol building. Doung asked the undercover officer if he was a “patriot,” to which the MPD officer responded in the affirmative.
The MPD officer then befriended Duong and later introduced Duong to an undercover FBI agent, who he invited to a Bible study group he attended in Virginia. The FBI began to surveil the Bible group, isolating its members over the course of several weeks.
According to Revolver news, there are still dozens of unindicted co-conspirators from January 6th. According to criminal complaints, many of the unindicted are members of groups like the Oath Keepers, the Three percenters, and the Proud boys, all of the top groups that are accused of planning the storming of the capitol building.
Many of the unindicted remain unnamed on the list with no charges, despite many of their crimes being more severe than many of the named and indicted.
In the plot to ‘kidnap’ Governor Gretchen Whitmer, the FBI admits that undercover agents represented around 60% of the people involved in the plot. The ‘explosives’ expert, the head of transportation, the man who purchased the hotel rooms, and the head of security, were all confirmed to be undercover agents according to criminal complaints.
The Whitmer ‘kidnapping’ plot did not start out as a plan to kidnap governor Whitmer. According to the FBI, the plan was originally to storm the state capitol building and get protesters who were outside the building for an unrelated protest to help.
Despite the FBI admitting that they were present around the capitol building, made contact with protesters, and then infiltrated and surveilled them, many mainstream outlets claim this sort of infiltration is a conspiracy theory.
