The recent criminal complaint against Fi Duong, along with several other affidavits confirms reporting by Revolver News which claimed 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.
Stuart Rhodes, the head of the Oath Keepers, remains unindicted despite allegedly talking about an insurrection attempt just days before January 6th.
The first cited event comes from a November 9th video conference on the platform GoToMeeting. According to the Oath Keepers indictment, Rhodes (Person One) said the following to his Oath Keeper followers in the meeting:
“We’re going to defend the president, the duly elected president, and we call on him to do what needs to be done to save our country. Because if you don’t guys, you’re going to be in a bloody, bloody civil war, and a bloody – you can call it an insurrection or you can call it a war or fight.”
“I do want some Oath Keepers to stay on the outside, and to stay fully armed and prepared to go in armed, if they have to . . . . So our posture’s gonna be that we’re posted outside of DC, um, awaiting the President’s orders.”
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.
