FBI Director Refuses To Answer Whether Agency Had Sources ‘Dressed As Trump Supporters’ In J6 Riots


FBI Director Christopher Wray refused to answer multiple questions Tuesday from a Republican congressman concerning whether FBI sources were embedded among Jan. 6 protesters during a House Homeland Security Committee hearing on Worldwide Threats to the Homeland.

Republican Louisiana Rep. Clay Higgins asked Wray at the hearing if the FBI had “confidential human sources embedded within the Jan. 6 protesters” that day. Wray said he had to “be very careful about when we do and do not and where we have and have not used” such sources, “categorically” denying that bureau sources or employees “instigated or orchestrated Jan. 6.”

The FBI has arrested more than 850 people in connection with the Jan. 6 events, with hundreds pleading guilty to related charges, according to NBC News. Earlier this year, the House Jan. 6 Committee dismissed an “unsupported” claim that the FBI helped to incite the riot, The Washington Post reported.

“Did you have confidential human sources dressed as Trump supporters inside the Capitol on Jan. 6 prior to the doors being opened?” Higgins subsequently questioned. Wray began to repeat that he needed to be “very careful,” but the congressman loudly insisted, “It should be a no! Can you not tell the American people no?”

The FBI director urged Higgins not to “read anything into” his choice not to divulge information about informants, with committee Chairman Bennie Thompson cutting off the exchange for time.

  1. The FBI is corrupt beyond repair. The bragged about the largest manhunt in U.S. history to find and charge and lock up people for protesting on Jan. 6 in a “riot” where no weapons were ever found, nothing was set on fire, and the only person killed on that day was an unarmed female veteran named Ashli Babbitt. Most don’t know it, but over 800 have been charged and some 200 already sentenced for “walking around in unauthorized areas”; some even on video being let in by Capitol Police. Two, of the hundreds that have had their lives ruined, have already committed suicide and a 68 year old Grandmother with cancer was sentenced to jail time. It’s abhorrent and disgusting.

    How many of the thousands of ANTIFA and BLM criminals that did untold billions in real damage in the real riots of the summer of 2020 that injured thousands of police officers and killed two dozen innocent people have been hunted down and arrested? Riots that all the media and social media and the President and Vice President and Speaker of The House and all the Democrats supported as righteous and “mostly peaceful”. This administration has weaponized, not just the FBI, but the DOJ, the CIA, the IRS and even the DOD against its political opposition. Even as we watch our cities descend into crime ridden hell holes because of the “no bail” and “defund the police” policies inspired by BLM (and supported by all the Democrats) they have the unmitigated gall to pronounce that “white supremacy is the greatest threat to the Homeland”.

    There were no consequences for the head of the FBI and dozens of his agents who, in collusion with Hillary Clinton and all the Democrats and all the mainstream and social media lied about a fake “dossier” and instituted a “Special Prosecutor” and two impeachments to oust a duly elected President. No consequences for lying and covering up the Hunter Biden laptop story to throw a Presidential election. And no consequences for Hunter flying around the world with his Dad on Air Force 2 making illegal “pay for play” deals worth tens of millions with hostile foreign powers. Deals that his Dad lied and said he knew nothing about, even though he got his 10% cut and can be seen meeting with Hunter’s business partners. Of course now we know that the FBI told Facebook to bury the Hunter Biden laptop story and gets private information from Facebook on conservative users in return. Twitter, Facebook, and all the mainstream media censor any damaging information as “disinformation”.

    They lie about inflation and the recession and no new taxes and it never ends. Anyone who disagrees is a racist, a homophobe, a misogynist or a xenophobe. Parents who oppose CRT or gender mutilation of children are “domestic terrorists”. Never in American history have we seen such suppression of free speech and targeting of the political opposition. Unless this tyranny is stopped soon, our once great American Republic will be destroyed forever.
