The Federal Bureau of Investigation was criticized for involving undercover agents in the Capitol riot on January 6. The FBI agent collaborated with a Proud Boys informant who admitted that there wasn’t a plot to overturn the election results. The pro-Trump attendees weren’t involved in any pre-planned attack.
As scores of Proud Boys made their way, chanting and shouting, toward the Capitol on Jan. 6, one member of the far-right group was busy texting a real-time account of the march.

The recipient was his F.B.I. handler.
In the middle of an unfolding melee that shook a pillar of American democracy — the peaceful transfer of power — the bureau had an informant in the crowd, providing an inside glimpse of the action, according to confidential records obtained by The New York Times. In the informant’s version of events, the Proud Boys, famous for their street fights, were largely following a pro-Trump mob consumed by a herd mentality rather than carrying out any type of preplanned attack.
The NY Times article corroborates what seemed only to be labeled as a far-right conspiracy theory. The FBI undercover agents worked for the January-6 faux-insurrection and didn’t stop the groups from entering the boiling. They shared details of how the agent was working for one extremist group in the development of the riot:
After meeting his fellow Proud Boys at the Washington Monument that morning, the informant described his path to the Capitol grounds where he saw barriers knocked down and Trump supporters streaming into the building, the records show. At one point, his handler appeared not to grasp that the building had been breached, the records show, and asked the informant to keep him in the loop — especially if there was any violence…
But the records, and information from two people familiar with the matter, suggest that federal law enforcement had a far greater visibility into the assault on the Capitol, even as it was taking place, than was previously known.
At the same time, the new information is likely to complicate the government’s efforts to prove the high-profile conspiracy charges it has brought against several members of the Proud Boys.
The NY Times shared that the FBI has an advantage regarding the real-time knowledge of the riot development previously planned. Their report shows that the Trump supporters didn’t plan anything in advance.
On Jan. 6, and for months after, the records show, the informant, who was affiliated with a Midwest chapter of the Proud Boys, denied that the group intended to use violence that day. In lengthy interviews, the records say, he also denied that the extremist organization planned in advance to storm the Capitol. The informant’s identity was not disclosed in the records.
The records describing the informant’s account of Jan. 6 — excerpts from his interviews and communications with the F.B.I. before, during and after the riot — dovetail with assertions made by defense lawyers who have argued that even though several Proud Boys broke into the Capitol, the group did not arrive in Washington with a preset plot to storm the building.
They also raise new questions about the performance of the F.B.I. in tracking the threat from far-right groups like the Proud Boys.
Tucker Carlson, this June, took a significant amount of heat from the MSM for emphasizing that Revolver News article tried to shine a spotlight on the FBI’s suspicious actions before the riot.
“Well, there’s been an enormous amount of hyper-ventilating in Washington over a segment we did two nights ago in which we pointed out that there were pretty clearly a number of people in the crowd at the Capitol on January 6 who had been in the previous contact with the FBI about what was going to happen that day,” Tucker stated.
“Some of them may have encouraged others at the scene to commit crimes,” he went on. “Now, if that happened, and we believe it did happen, it would not be out of character for the FBI. They have done things very much like that before. That is beyond dispute.”
“But in this case, they are disputing it,” Tucker continued. “Not the FBI directly — they haven’t said a word. But the obedient minions of the national security state who run the social media accounts for the N.Y. Times and occupy the anchor desks at CNN, they became hysterical when we mentioned it.”
“‘You can’t say that!’ they screamed, ‘That’s not allowed!'” Tucker mocked.
So, not only the N.Y. Times said it, but they had an entire article proving Trucker Carlson was right.
He asked these questions:
- “How many of the so-called insurrectionists on January 6 had a relationship with the FBI? How many of these FBI moles encouraged others that day to break the law at the Capitol?”
- “If the Justice Department knew there were going to be protestors massing at the Capitol that day, and it’s clear they did know, then why didn’t they do anything to stop the riot? Why did police at the Capitol allow protestors to walk in, as video shows that they did?”
- “Why can’t we see the tape for ourselves? The government is hiding more than 14,000 hours of video surveillance tape that shows exactly what did happen at the Capitol that day? Why are they hiding that? And why aren’t news organizations demanding to see it?”
If the first question’s answer is none, then they could admit they were wrong and only apologize.
“But if the answer is not ‘none,’ and we’re pretty sure it isn’t ‘none,’ then people who claim otherwise are liars and hacks and should leave the public state immediately because they have betrayed their readers and viewers.” he added. Tucker said that media outlets “are working to protect the regime at the expense of the public.”
This Thursday, the prosecutor lost one lawsuit to keep the 14,000 hours recording from the surveillance video that the FBI kept out of reach. For things to be even worse, the MSM claimed that there had been an organized attempt to change the election results.
“The FBI has found scant evidence that the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result, according to four current and former law enforcement officials,” Reuters shared.
“Though federal officials have arrested more than 570 alleged participants, the FBI at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump, according to the sources, who have been either directly involved in or regularly briefed on the wide-ranging investigations,” the report added.
“Ninety to ninety-five percent of these are one-off cases,” said a former senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. “Then you have five percent, maybe, of these militia groups that were more closely organized. But there was no grand scheme with Roger Stone and Alex Jones and all of these people to storm the Capitol and take hostages.”
