Only one night before the tragic event on January 6, some Federal Bureau of Investigation agents thought they should alert Congress about the possible threat of violence.
And they did what was necessary; they sent an email to the low-level officials. And no one follow-up.

After Senate hearing on the Capitol riot on Tuesday, NBC News shared:
‘’An FBI intelligence report describing plans for violence at the Capitol was sent via email to lower-level officials the night before the January 6 riot and was never read by Capitol Police or Washington, D.C. leaders, according to testimony at Tuesday’s Senate hearing.’’
According to the Senators, this is an intelligence breakdown, referring to both the Capitol Police and the FBI.
A denial came from the Ex-Capitol security chiefs. They denied seeing an email from the FBI or anything else that could indicate such a violent event.
“The now-former officials responsible for Capitol security on January 6 testified Tuesday that they did not receive an FBI threat report warning that extremists were planning to travel to Washington to commit violence and “war”.”
The first testimonies came by three persons:
- Former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund
- Former House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving
- Former Senate Sergeant Michael Stenger
Moreover, the Capitol Police warned Congress of possible violence a couple of days before the tragic event. Steven Sund disclosed the information today on his hearing.
“As recent as Tuesday, January 5, during a meeting I hosted with my executive team, the Capitol Police board and a dozen of the top law enforcement and military officials from D.C.,”
“No entity, including the FBI, provided any new intelligence regarding January 6. It should also be noted that the Secretary of Homeland Security did not issue an elevated or imminent alert in reference to the events at the United States Capitol on January 6.”
Sund also said that anarchist groups and Antifa might be there, so the protest could quickly become a riot. He said:
“The assessment indicated that members of the Proud Boys, white supremacist groups and Antifa and other extremist groups were expected to participate in on January 6 and that it may be inclined to become violent.”
The Capitol Riot was a planned attack. It included violent groups like far-right Proud Boys, the Black Lives Matter supporters, Boogaloo Bois, and even Antifa.
The testimony of Sund was crucial for us, or anyone else, to conclude that they sent warnings for the House and Senate. According to him, there were even six warnings!
Besides the warnings, the FBI didn’t do anything to help to secure the Capitol. The FBI sat with crossed arms even though the intelligence indicated possible assault.
