This is old news. Last September, the New York Times reported that the FBI had at least one informant marching with the Proud Boys on January 6. So how many FBI agents were on the Capitol grounds on January 6? This April, The Epoch Times reported that “at least 20 FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives ‘assets’ were embedded around the U.S. Capitol on January 6.”
The one thing that we know for sure is that Ray Epps was not an FBI informant, as some “crazies” were suggesting; Rep. Adam Kinzinger talked to “Ray” and said he was “just another misled man” … a victim, really.
We’re not endorsing anything the Proud Boys did on January 6, but we’re also getting heavy “Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping” vibes. The Times says this raises questions about how much federal investigators were able to “learn” from them … and maybe “teach” them a thing or two.
The FBI had as many as eight informants inside the Proud Boys in the months around the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, recent court papers indicate, raising questions about how much federal investigators were able to learn from them before and after it took place. https://t.co/vfMPExBNW3

So they just let it happen? Well that's disturbing.

If they had agents undercover. why was there no extra support ready for the storm of the capital?
Or was it allowed to happen for the bad press or was it to cover up the fact the FBI is pro Democrat 🤔

That was my question. Why were there no attempts to stop it?

I'm old enough to remember being called a conspiracy theorist for even suggesting this.

Interesting, still extra enforcement was not asked

No, the question it raised is how involved they were in the planning, not how much they "were able to learn".

And they weren’t better prepared at the Capitol? Fishy.

“Learn from” doing a lot of heavy lifting.

Question is, of course, how much the “informants” actually had to do with the actual events that day.
— Joevember (@defjoepass) November 15, 2022
They had informants planted in the Oath Keepers (including the VP) and Proud Boys (as high up as the chairman), and we’re supposed to believe this was an organized coup attempt (despite no firepower), but somehow they didn’t know it was gonna happen. Sound believable?

Now they are apparently saying that the seditious conspiracy plot was hastily put together while they were on the steps at the Capitol on J6.

Like how all but one of the Whitmer "kidnapping" suspects were FBI informants?
Weird the @FBI seems to always be involved and doesn't do anything to stop it
— TorloktofTyr (@TorloktofTyr_) November 14, 2022
Why yes, we do have questions about how much the FBI informants were able to learn from the Proud Boys what their plans were for President Trump’s Stop the Steal rally. Insurrection? And they let it happen?
Editor’s Note: Republican voters deserve answers and accountability for the failed red wave.
