Tucker Carlson, a Fox News personality, had a fiery retort to the dramatic hyperventilation that accompanied his show’s questioning of the FBI’s role in the lead-up to the January 6th events in the nation’s capital.
Tucker was, of course, alluding to a bombshell piece published by Revolver News that raises the question of whether certain members of “far-right extremist groups” who have gone unindicted were FBI informants or undercover operatives.

Tucker brought in Darren Beattie, the editor of Revolver News, on Tuesday to expand out the tale. The news media, understandably, has gone insane for daring to challenge the official account of the January 6th uprising. Tucker addressed the hyperbolic blowback in ‘classic Tucker’ fashion.
“Well, there’s been a lot of hyperventilating in Washington over a segment we did two nights ago in which we pointed out that there were a lot of people in the crowd at the Capitol on January 6th who had been in previous contact with the FBI about what was going to happen that day,” Tucker said in his monologue.
“However, they are disputing it in this case,” Tucker continued. “Not directly from the FBI; they haven’t mentioned anything. When we reported it, the servile minions of the national security state who operate the NY Times’ social media accounts and sit at CNN’s anchor desks grew hysterical.”
“You can’t say that!” they yelled, “That’s not allowed!” Tucker sneered.
He went on to say, “The geniuses at Twitter jumped in to advise us that the folks we had characterized as FBI agents were, in fact, just FBI informants.” “All right, then, shut up. Hilarious.”
“But we’re not going to stop talking, and we shouldn’t. “It could not be clearer at this time that the government is concealing something, most likely a number of things,” he said. “It’s best to give up theatrics and figure out what they’re hiding, because that’s our job.”
The following three questions were posed by Carlson:
“On January 6, how many of the so-called insurrectionists had ties to the FBI? How many of these FBI informants pushed others to break the law in the Capitol that day?”
“Why didn’t the Justice Department do anything to prevent the disturbance if they knew there would be protestors massing at the Capitol that day, as it appears they did? Why did Capitol police allow protestors to walk in, as video evidence suggests?”
“Why can’t we see the tape for ourselves?” says the narrator. Is the government concealing over 14,000 hours of video surveillance tape that depicts exactly what happened that day at the Capitol? Why are they concealing this information? Why aren’t news organizations clamoring for access to it?”
Tucker added that if the answer to the first question is “none,” they would confess they were wrong and apologize. “However, if the answer isn’t ‘none,’ which we’re quite sure it isn’t,’ then those who claim otherwise are liars and crooks who should leave the public sector immediately because they have betrayed their readers and viewers,” he continued. usch media outlets, according to Tucker, are “working to defend the regime at the expense of the public.”
Of course, Tucker Carlson was correct when he said that the FBI infiltrating far-right extremist groups and then failing to stop them from carrying out a “insurgency” scheme would not be unusual. Indeed, the FBI has a long history of “entrapment” plans and arranging “false terrorist conspiracies,” as the Guardian put it in 2011.
“The FBI was in charge of the target, the motive, the ideology, and the plot,” Karen Greenberg, a law professor at Fordham University in New York, told The Guardian.
The FBI then conducts a sting, frequently by fabricating a phony terror plot in which it assists in the supply of weapons and targets, according to the article. “Then there are big arrests, press conferences, and lengthy convictions. But it’s unclear whether a large number of genuine terrorists are involved.”
Additionally, there have been recognized participants in the January 6th riots, some of whom are among the far-right parties’ leadership, who can be credibly connected as alleged “FBI agents.”
Texas Rep. Louis Gohmert drew on questions made by a Revolver News piece on Tuesday, which was mentioned by Tucker Carlson on his prime time Fox News show. The article cited the Whitmer kidnapping conspiracy in Michigan, in which five of the 14 “conspirators” were undercover FBI agents or informants. The FBI’s in-charge agent would go on to play a vital part in the investigation on January 6th.
Furthermore, we know that the FBI has been illegally monitoring far-right extremists for possible Electoral College targeting since the November election. In reality, since early 2020, the organized left has been ‘wargaming’ for a contested election, according to a Time article.
When you add in the fact that the National Guard and Capitol Police were effectively given “stand down orders,” and that Capitol Police kept doors open for sight seers and told protesters they could “peacefully” protest in the Senate chamber, you have what appears to be a trap to draw “pro-Trump” protesters into the Capitol building and blame them for a “coup” and a “insurgency.”
When you consider that all of the citizens inside the Capitol building seemed to be unarmed and did not kill anyone, the media’s portrayal of the “deadly” January 6th event simply does not fit the realities on the ground. It is within the rights of Americans to continue to ask questions.
