"FBI Director Christopher Wray resoundingly said Antifa and other leftists were not part of the violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6. "

"'We have not, to date, seen any evidence of anarchist violence extremists or people subscribing to Antifa in connection to the 6th,' Wray told the Senate on Tuesday. 'We're coming after it' if there's violence from both the left and the right, he added, but in the Capitol, there wasn't evidence of leftists adding fuel to the insurrection... Wray said the bureau is seeing 'quite a number of what would we call militia violent extremists' as the FBI builds its cases agains the rioters. He specifically mentioned the groups the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers. He added that they have seen in their investigations instances of 'racially motivated violent extremists' who advocate for White supremacy. 'One of the things that is happening as part of this is that as we build out the cases on the individuals when we arrest them for the violence, we're getting a richer and richer understanding of the different people's motivations,' he said. 'But certainly as I said, militia violent extremism and some instances of racially motivated violent extremism, especially advocating for the superior [sic] of the white race.'... 'The problem of domestic terrorism has been metastasizing across the country for a long time now and it is not going is a way any time soon,' Wray said...."

From CNN's ongoing coverage of testimony this morning from FBI Director Christopher Wray before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

What are his thoughts on Russia colluding with Trump?

Weiner's laptop?

Hunter's laptop?

Seth Rich?

Any opinion?

The credibility of Wray and the Feds in general is less than zero.

He's part of the Swamp, and still holding his job under Biden*, which he wouldn't be if he wasn't part of the Swamp. I don't believe a word he says.

MountainMan said...

So Michael Yon went to DC from the West Coast after spending several months observing Antifa in Portland and Seattle and being on the streets with them. He went to DC specifically because he thought something would happen. In a video interview I saw on line and in some photos online he identified what he believed to be Antifa personnel using their tactics and methods. Perhaps Wray and his people should interview him. Based on what I have seen and read over the past few years I would trust what Yon is saying versus anything from the FBI. I have no faith in the FBI at all, which is sad, because I have known some FBI people in the past and used to have a lot of respect for them.

John Sullivan? The woman who filmed John Sullivan?

Nonapod said...

It's the 50 year anniversary of the Weather Undergound's bombing of the Capital building. Some of its leaders became tenured professors. I guess they were the desirable kind of domestic terrorists.

John Borell said...

Swamp creatures are going to swamp.

Getting mad at Wray for this is like getting mad at the lion who eats a gazelle. It's what they do.

That said, Wray is a piece of shit who values his fellow swamp creatures more than his fellow Americans, more than the Constitution, more than anything.

The whole Bureau should be disbanded.

rcocean said...

I don't believe a word he says. The FBI has been run by liars ever since Mueller took over. We already have a guy - Sullivan from Utah - who is Antifa and was on CNN - and was leading the violence on Jan 6th.

BTW, in case you haven't heard. The officer murdered on Jan 6th with a fire extinguisher, was NOT murdered. And was never hit with a fire extinguisher. His family says he texted them the night of Jan 6th and said he was fine. He never went to the hospital, and died at the police station from unknown causes. The "Authorities" have REFUSED to release the autopsy report or the Toxicology report. Nor will they answer questions regarding the "Murder investigation" that no one talks about.

Nor have they released the name of the cop who killed Ashli Babbitt. Because? No one knows. Or cares. Evidently.

Breezy said...

Has anyone asked about violent extremists NOT associated with Jan 6th? Those seem to way outnumber Jan 6 examples. Let’s dig into those guys and their sponsors and their ideologies....

FleetUSA said...

Wray is just carrying out BH0's orders.

chuck said...

It's unfortunate that I have no confidence in either the integrity or competence of the FBI. Their record is terrible, and Wray has been just another game playing swamp bureaucrat. His statements carry no weight with me. I'd love to know more about what happened, but the result of my curiosity is ever increasing distrust as evidence is withheld from the public. And why is the capitol still occupied by the NG?

rcocean said...

We still have 5,000 NG troops in the Capitol protecting these stupid Congressional Clowns from Nothing. These wimps and cowards, don't need 5,000 NG troops. Remember when Pelosi wanted machine gun nests set up to protect Joe Biden inaugural? What absurdity!

Nothing will change because you have 80 million dumbshit Democrats who DO NOT CARE. They don't care Cuomo killed thousands in NY. They don't care about corruption, stealing votes, or anything else. As long as its democrat in office they will do NOTHING. Everything's Jake.

Iman said...

Who would believe this piss ant at this point!?!?

This corksoaker and his crew were nowhere to be found when rioting, burning, looting, mayhem was unleashed by for real domestic terrorists in 2020. He and they should be laughed right out of the country.

Put the Hoover Dressing Gown on, Wray. You’ve earned it.

Browndog said...

This is why another Trump term does us no good.

Not only should he have fired this rat bastard the second he started slow-walking requested documents, but he never should have hired him in the first place.

The FBI is corrupt, through and through. He is a lying POS. I would trust Michael Yon over anyone in that corrupt organization.

Hopefully the next MAGA POTUS will not make the mistake of firing every damn person they can when they get in. One of his biggest was not firing every attorney at the corrupt DOJ when he got in like Biden* has.

They must have chuckled, what a fool as they immediately began trying to overthrow his election.

Swamp creatures suck

tcrosse said...

But Wray said it resoundingly. That has to count for something....

rcocean said...

Notice no one, I repeat no one, talks about how many trump supporters were at his speech on Jan 6th. Trump says its the largest crowd he ever saw. We're talking 100-200 thousand people. How many "stormed" the Capital? maybe 1,000. how many committed any kind of violence or vandalism? Maybe 200.

Wray isn't some "Old FBI hand". He's just like comey. A fucking lawyer who got selected to head the Agency. He didn't move against Antifa, and acts like it doesn't exist. He plays up the non-existent "White Supremist" threat because he's a liberal. 100-1 he was rooting for Biden to win. Someone said that Chris Christie told Trump Wray was A-OK. And I believe that.

rcocean said...

Too bad the Left wing trolls can't get their wish, and suck Wray's dick. Because you know they want to.

Shouting Thomas said...

What does the FBI investigate?

Apparently nothing.

We had hundreds of incidents of riots in our cities in 2020, and they don’t seem to have investigated any of them.

What in the world does the FBI do with its time?

Chuck, you dumb fuck, I’ll bet you’re an old white guy. They’re going to eventually get around to you, you stupid bastard.

You think you’ll be the last surviving member of the Judenrat?

wendybar said...

So why was little Antifa boy John Sullivan there in a MAGA hat, encouraging people to go in screaming "This house is our house now??" Or does he identify as a Conservative whilst under investigation, and the KeyStone Cop FBI, we have that actually DID lie and set up a FAKE Russian Collusion hoax that they all got away with without even a slap on the wrist believed him??? They really are trying to set up a Civil War. They want to piss us off so we attack, and then the Gun confiscation, and control takes effect. The Socialists will have won.

Browndog said...

How's that pipe bomber investigation going? Racist garage pull investigations should be wrapping up by now. Maybe assign that team of crack investigators to the case.

Who as I kidding- you already know. Probably on your payroll.

Mike Sylwester said...

Antifa was told to stay away from this particular pro-Trump demonstration.

Mike Sylwester said...

If Trump had won the election, his first action would have been to fire Wray. Trump would have done so before the inauguration.

I'm Full of Soup said...

Yeah who cares about January 6th.

Tell us the important stuff Mr. Wray- like have you captured the two MAGA guys who kidnapped Lady Gaga's dogs?

GMay said...

The guy, identified as Kevin Seefried, carrying that brand new Confederate Flag - little square packaging folds still visible - is a registered Democrat from Delaware who has been active since 2003. His voting records are available online.

I like how the media portrayed that one guy who followed the police officer upstairs and took a decidedly non-aggressive stance when talking to him was characterized as "chasing" the officer.

If that massive crowd had wanted to actually take over the capitol, there's not a thing anyone could have done to stop them. They should be praising Trump supporters for their restraint. The idea that the cast of Animal House was prepared to install their own government is a cosmically stupid idea put forth by people who are supposed to know better, including the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Mike Sylwester said...

Will the FBI ever tell the public who pre-positioned the bricks for the Antifa riots?

tim maguire said...

As noted here (and damn near every other place where right-wing voices are welcome), John Sullivan is a known antifa activist who is on film trespassing on capital grounds on January 6 urging on rioters. Will Wray be asked about him?

GMay said...

Wait, so this FBI who is finding all sorts of motivations of random protesters and cosplayers is the same FBI who found "no motive" for the Vegas shooter?

They'd better hope I'm never called to jury duty where the FBI presents evidence.

Nonapod said...

Christopher Ray's primary goal has always been protecting the status quo. Given his history it's pretty obvious that he has little interest in the truth if it doesn't serve that goal. CNN crowing about him "resoundingly" saying there weren't any leftists present isn't exactly an accurate or fair interpretation of what he really said. But CNN is even less interested in the truth than Ray is.

Dave Begley said...

Did the FBI even look for antifa and BLM people at the 1-6-21?

The FBI and less than zero credibility with me.

The FBI didn't even look for election fraud.

Ken B said...

As Tim M points out, Wray is peddling a falsehood.
It’s all theatre, gearing up for a domestic Patriot Act.

What a shame that the FBI, is now laughed at as a Biased Progressive lying intel agency that nobody believes or trusts anymore since they were involved in the lies and spying on a duly elected President, and they helped cover it all up. And yet, they expect us to believe them NOW??? WHY?? When NOBODY got in trouble at all for all the lies and hate that they spewed for the last 5 years??? They are trying to incite us to attack them. The fencing isn't coming down around DC...they are strengthening it...WHY???

wendybar said...

Who placed the bombs?? Trump supporters don't walk around with goggles and protective clothing since we don't riot....that is ANTIFA and BLM who do that. To lie to us when we all saw what happened is disgusting. I have NEVER been more ashamed of this country than I am right now because of what the left has done to it.

OK, so what violence occurred on January 6?

How does it compare to the violent extremism that occurred in January 2017? For example, which caused the most damage?

"Hopefully the next MAGA sPOTUS will not make the mistake of firing every damn person they can when they get in."

That would be a great platform to run on. Plus reducing D.C. to a ceremonial Capitol, giving the remaining territory back to Maryland, and dispersing the agencies among the 50 states.

Mike Sylwester said...

Antifa is thoroughly infiltrated by the FBI, just like the KKK was.

It's likely that John Sullivan is an FBI agent. That's why Wray will not say that Sullivan is an Antifa member.

Antifa's main activity is to attack right-wing protests for being "racist".

For some reason, though, Antifa did not attack the "racist" protest against the election of Biden and Harris on January 6.

If the FBI wanted Antifa to stay away from that particular right-wing, racist protest, then the FBI knew how to tell Antifa to do so.

Inga said...

What a sad pathetic bunch of people you’ve turned into. You may not realize it, but you sound like QAnon. How strong the delusions must be for you Trumpists. Trumpism and QAnon, no difference at this point. I’d suggest people start realizing playing with fire will get you burned. Look at all the “patriots” aka domestic violent terrorists from Jan.6th who now have their lives ruined, all based on fantasy. Astounding. I haven’t asked this for a long time, but what is wrong with you people?

We have not, to date, seen any evidence of anarchist violence extremists or people subscribing to Antifa in connection to the 6th.

It might help if he actually looked. Just sayin’

Shouting Thomas said...

That’s something truly mind numbing in extortionists like Inga bleating about “playing with fire,” isn’t there?

The Antifa/BLM/Dem/CCP specializes in accusing people of planning to do precisely what they’ve already done.

DINKY DAU 45 said...

It is impossible to graft a new idea on a closed mind .trumps director and now Biden's hire said same thing before trump lost and trump was not happy then, but he couldn't fire yet another director. Best banter, whitehouse and Wray" haven't got any answers from as far back as 2007 ,can't do oversite without answers to questions and especially not when answers are partisan accordingly. If everything is FAKE NEWS then who do you believe? GOD or the god you made in your mind? Representatives are hired to represent ,if they don't then there is an option to remove them, it was just done November 3rd and will continue though probably in new age form, things valid 250 years ago are becoming more moot, you know like 8 track tapes. FLAT EARTHERS will always be among us. Whining and crying about things you have limited control over just lead to an unhappy existence. Do what you can and if you don't like outcomes, exercise, take a run, meditate, join a health club, hug your wife, go to the movies, have a life to release your tensions. It really works for all but the most incapacitated by conspiracies. DR PHIL! :)

rcocean said...

"Antifa is thoroughly infiltrated by the FBI, just like the KKK was."

I wouldn't go that far. The Time magazine piece made it clear that antifa and BLM were acting under orders and were told to "stand down" in October and afterwards because it was hurting Biden.

Its also clear that Antifa who always shows up to attack Trump supporters, was told to "Stand down" on Jan 6th. I was surprised on Jan 6th, because I fully expected Antifa to disrupt the protest by attacking Trump supporters allowing the media to do their usual "Violence breaks out" shit. And thereby paint the Trump supporters as the aggressors and NOT talk about the election fraud.

But what the Left did was more clever. leave the capital undefended and then have anarchists and antifa ASSIST the dumb extreme right to riot. Then blame Trump for the whole thing.

rcocean said...

The Time magazine article made it clear that antifa and BLM take their orders from the Democrat party. That's who "gave the order" for them to stand down in October.

rcocean said...

Trump has stated that Wray was ROSENSTEIN's pick. It should be noted that Trump was under massive pressure, with the Mueller investigation going on, to NOT pick a Trump supporter, but someone more neutral.

Tank said...

Well, now we know what the “official story” is.

Lotta good comments today.

rcocean said...

Never forget that McConnell - like Ryan - was sabotaging and subverting Trump at every turn. while appearing - in public - to support him. That goes for Cassidy, Toomey, Thune, and Burr. They only dropped the mask AFTER January 6th. Sasse, Lisa Murky, Collins, Romney, and McCain made it clear from Day 1, that they hated Trump's guts and would destroy him if given a chance.

'One of the things that is happening as part of this is that as we build out the cases on the individuals when we arrest them for the violence, we're getting a richer and richer understanding of the different people's motivations,' he said.

See, the FBI doesn't arrest Antifa/BLM for violence and their understanding of these groups comes from their political masters not investigation.

daskol said...

I did a quick poll just based on the vibes I got skimming this thread:

% Althouse readers who think Wray is credible: 0
% Althouse readers who think Wray is swamp: 100

Your vibes are unanimous. I think Wray is interesting only insofar as seeing his name triggers a great Link Wray riff in my brain. Beyond that, fuck him, the horse he rode in on and the rest of the DOJ.

I would be more worried that the FBI is thoroughly infiltrated by Antifa.

daskol said...

The thing is, we've all seen the Antifa people there, on videos taken by citizens and "journalists." So Wray failed a test of credibility here, among those who are paying attention. This pompous Congressional testimony is not directed at those of us paying attention.

Shouting Thomas said...

The situation is far worse than Trump tried to tell us in 2016.

Our government is a fraud, our elections and media are fake, the Democratic Party is nothing by a Mafia extortion racket and our police agencies are on the side of the mob.

The Murray Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect:

“Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray’s case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I call these the “wet streets cause rain” stories. Paper’s full of them.
In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know.”

Mueller was US Attorney in Boston when the FBI put away several innocent men to protect Whitey Bulger who was acting as an informant for them.

Long before he became FBI Director, serious questions existed about Mueller’s role as Acting U.S. Attorney in Boston in effectively enabling decades of corruption and covering up of the FBI’s illicit deals with mobster Whitey Bulger and other “top echelon” informants who committed numerous murders and crimes. When the truth was finally uncovered through intrepid investigative reporting and persistent, honest judges, U.S. taxpayers footed a $100 million court award to the four men framed for murders committed by (the FBI operated) Bulger gang.

DavidUW said...

Well. That settles it then. We all know that no one in the FBI lies to Congress, the media, or to judges.

We all know that no one in the FBI conducts politically motivated investigations that inevitable arrive at pre-determined conclusions depending on the politics of the moment.

They have been pushing this white supremacist terrorism threat stuff for quite a while now.

And yet--where are the actions?

Wouldn't you think that by this point all hell would have broken loose? Or at least some minor version of it?

Perhaps these "white supremacists" are so well-disciplined that they are able to control their followers and refrain from acting (despite all the political provocation on display).

Or perhaps the FBI is so good at what they do that they have thwarted every action before it happens.

Yeah, that's the ticket!

Remember the 2015 Draw Muhammed Cartoon Contest in Garland, TX ? Two jihadis drove from AZ to attack the gathered assembly. The FBI had an informant who knew about it, followed the jihadis to TX, but did not offer any intel to the local police or station FBI agents at the meeting.

You almost might conclude that the FBI wanted the jihadis to succeed. Why I can't say. Did the FBI want to send a message that the people attending the conference deserved it or influence public opinion against the group holding the contest and other Islamophobes? IDK

I haven't felt the same towards the FBI since then. And then of course there's the way Trump's campaign staff was spied on, etc. I got the impression that the FBI can pick and choose what they want to stop from happening and what they will allow to happen for political purposes. Sad really.

hombre said...

I don’t know about Jan. 6th except that it is a Pelosi stretch to call it an insurrection when 50 plus attacks on local and federal buildings and authorities in Portland alone are not even characterized unequivocally as violence by the leftmediaswine and DNC ponces. Of course those attacks and similar attacks carried out nationwide are by Antifa/BLM Democrat Brownshirts. What is the count, 100 to one? What is the cost, billions? How many injured? Killed?

And where was the vaunted FBI, protector of the nation against domestic terrorists, while our cities were being ravaged by classic acts of domestic terrorism including violation of the civil rights of innocent citizens by the miscreants.

Wray will do nothing to convince the sane half of the country that the FBI is a real law enforcement agency and Merrick “What Immigration Laws?” Garland will finish the Obama/Holder devastation of the DOC.

Talk about undermining your case. There is publicly available video of a leftist inciting the crowd.

I don't think this was a material effect, the overwhelming majority of identified protesters and rioters were from the right. But when you emphatically state something that is clearly not true the remaining options are that you're engaged in a cover up or you're a complete and utter fool.

I'm going with complete and utter fool in this case. But this shows the arrogance of bureaucrats that they believe their pronouncements disprove publicly known facts.

While I may be judging books by their covers, it does appear that a vast majority of the people involved were Trump supporters. While Michael Yon's videos are interesting, I don't see them as evidence of Antifa involvement. He only says that there were people using "Antifa tactics", but tactics can be copied.

Yet we do have evidence of Sullivan egging people on (and then making a nice profit from it). If Sullivan isn't Antifa, then what is he? It's not much of a stretch to think there were other non-Antifa Antifa doing the same thing.

It tells me that I am a radical terrorist. I didn't believe that at first, but it must be true. So I shall act as a proper radical terrorist from now on.

It tells me that "I didn't build that." So I will build nothing more for them. It tells me that my gender is evil. I will be so from now on. It tells me that my guns are a danger to them. Let it be so.

Balfegor said...

If he said definitively that Leftists weren't part of the violence, then he hasn't been paying attention to the prosecutions. At least one Leftist, John Earle Sullivan, has been arrested for his involvement. If you read the Washington Post article I linked, you can see all the excuses for why he's not really a Leftist, but note how they tiptoe around his role in organising BLM protests:

He began organizing protests in Utah last year, and at one of the first, one of the protesters shot a motorist, said Lex Scott . . .

What were those protests? Hmm, who knows? Probably this one, in which a driver attempting to escape protesters crowding around his vehicle was shot. As you might guess, it was a BLM protest "decrying police brutality."

The attempt to rewrite history so a violent Leftist isn't really on the Left should be familiar, because it happens almost every time there's violence associated with a Leftist cause. We saw this narrative trotted out when there were rapes and assaults at Occupy camps years ago. And again more recently with violence at CHAZ in Seattle. Even during the early BLM riots, Democratic officials promoted a false narrative that the riots were the work of right-wing interlopers. At any rate, it's practically a cliche at this point.

Is Sullivan representative of most participants at the Capitol riot? No -- most of them are clearly aligned on the Right. He's more like the exception that proves the rule, just as there were one or two Rightists arrested in connection with the vandalism during BLM riots. But it's obviously false to say there was no Leftist involvement in the violence.

Yup, and that was an FBI hit job, too.

Felt saw Gray’s selection as an unwelcome politicization of the FBI (by placing it under direct presidential control), an assault on the traditions created by Hoover and an insult to his memory, and a massive personal disappointment. Felt was thus a disgruntled employee at the highest level. He was also a senior official in an organization that traditionally had protected its interests in predictable ways. (By then formally the No. 2 figure in FBI, Felt effectively controlled the agency given Gray’s inexperience and outsider status.) The FBI identified its enemies, then used its vast knowledge of its enemies’ wrongdoings in press leaks designed to be as devastating as possible.

Nixon, of course, was an "enemy."

If Sullivan isn't Antifa, then what is he? It's not much of a stretch to think there were other non-Antifa Antifa doing the same thing.

But our morally unimpeachable, trustworthy, and wise unelected apparatchik has assured us that there "wasn't evidence of leftists". We shouldn't be worrying our pretty little heads about all the talk of this "Sullivan" person. If the FBI says there wre no leftists anywhere at all near the "insurection", who are we to doubt that?

Boomers didn't dominate the sixties, genius. The first Boomers were born in 1946. Do the math. Boomers could vote until 1967, and those who did were few in number, a mere fraction of the cohort. The sixties were dominated by the Boomers' still-young parents and their predecessors, the very same who gave us the Vietnam War, the Great Society, and other problematic programs and policies. The boomers only really came into their own in the late 70s and 80s, when we gave your Reagan and a roaring economic "boom."

Watergate was a pre-Boomer phenomenon. By 1974 the oldest Boomers were only 29. Most, perforce, were younger; a significant number were not yet out of their teens. I daresay many were in fighting in the Vietnam War, their lives and health and courage being squandered by their elders in a conflict those elders were too incompetent to manage, far less to win.

LOL! We went through this bullshit on Trump-Russia for 3 years. Yeah, they can't "confirm or deny" - when it hurts the Left. Otherwise, they leak like a sieve. The FBI either has evidence of murder or they do not. And its 10,000 to 1, they don't have any evidence of murder. IF its murder, why aren't they releasing photos the "murderers" and asking for the public's help? IF its murder where is the video? Where is the evidence?

Again, its just like the Trump-Russia Collusion fakery all over again.

He's an admitted liar. There were right-wing pro-Trump groups and plenty of people who just happened to be there after the rally, but there were also some left-wing agitators as well. There may even have been more of them in the Capitol that day than there were admitted White supremacists. Plus, when we are talking about fringe groups, there's always likely to be somebody who is a government informant or a provocateur for the other side.

Balfegor said...

Re: GMay:

So how does that change your argument, or whatever it is, when you actually do identify provocateurs?

My view of the agent provocateur claim -- both when Democrats were raising it to try and blame BLM/Antifa violence on Republicans, and today when Republicans are trying to use it to blame Antifa for the Capitol riot -- is what does it matter? Is some "peaceful protester" seriously going to argue,

"Sure I broke those windows and set that fire, but it's all because this agent provocateur from the other side lured me into doing it, so I'm not responsible!"

Now that I put it in words, that is exactly something I can imagine a protester saying, but that's largely because I think most protesters are excitable fools. For the rest of us, though, whether a "peaceful protester" was enticed by someone else into committing a crime shouldn't matter one whit. Those are the kinds of temptations one ought to be able to resist, as an adult. This is not a high bar.

All that said, based on the videos I've seen of the interior of the Capitol during the riot, there are probably a number of people who unlawfully entered the Capitol after police had been overrun in the mistaken belief that the police had let them in and that they were allowed to be there. My impression from the FBI affidavits that I've skimmed, however, is that prosecutors aren't going after these people, but people whose Facebook postings and suchlike show they knew they had forced their way in.

Buffalo man is a QAnon adherent.

“During the Jan. 6 insurrection, Chansley was photographed several times during the riot at the Capitol, leading to five deaths and several injuries. Chansley, who hails from Phoenix, is a YouTuber who supports the political leanings of conservative group QAnon. The Arizona man can be seen wearing a fur with horns and face paint that resembled the design of the American flag. He turned himself in to his local FBI field office after returning from Washington, D.C.”

Matt Sablan said...

"Hawley questioned him on whether the FBI is investigating too hard, using GPS and phone data, bank records, etc. Weird when the criminal gets to cross-examine the prosecutor."

-- Actually, it is a fair question. Consider how little effort has been put into identifying people involved in other violent insurrectionist acts that the FBI had the lead on. If a bunch of cops only seriously investigated local crimes when "the right sort" of criminal could be charged, we'd have issues that they only bothered to investigate when they could gore the correct ox. So: Why has the FBI been so incredibly lazy when it comes to other events? Where was the massive FBI push to capture all the protesters who interrupted the Kavanaugh hearings, for example?

Matt Sablan said...

"My impression from the FBI affidavits that I've skimmed, however, is that prosecutors aren't going after these people, but people whose Facebook postings and suchlike show they knew they had forced their way in."

-- This would be comforting if places like the Bank of America and multiple news agencies hadn't been willing to sell people out to the state. The creepy selling out of neighbors and family members who had not engaged in violent crimes at the capitol is kind of chilling. It's kind of terrifying how quickly the media, large corporations, and the left are willing to turn into fascists when there's a chance to gain a little bit of power for their political allies.

Matt Sablan said...

"Left or Right, you know ya dun fucked up when you find yourself looking through photos of your riot and praying you can spot someone who belongs to the other side."

-- I think the bigger "fuck up," as you put it, is when a government official with the power of a massive bureaucracy who can end my freedom with a simple whim -- one that agency has been known to willingly falsify documents to get people they don't like where minimal to no consequences were faced for *falsifying evidence* -- says there is no evidence of a thing, when everyone who has been following the event knows there is evidence of a thing.

There are four lights. (Note: I'm not even a big fan of the riot that occurred, and I think rioters should face consequences. But, I'm extremely suspicious of people who are very selective about who faces said consequences and how severe they are. Women who handed out molotov cocktails to attack police officers and who also attacked a police car (they got lucky it was empty!) for example get a plea deal -- despite committing actual attempted murder. The people involved in the January 6 riot have had the entire power of the state, media, and even *their bank* turned against them to ruin their lives.

independent said...

"Consider how little effort has been put into identifying people involved in other violent insurrectionist acts that the FBI had the lead on."

The FBI and associated agencies have brought many criminal cases against rioters disguised as protestors in the summer of 2020. Just look at the press releases of DOJ, FBI, ATF, etc from the past ten months. What is your source of information to the contrary?

Kathryn51 said...

My lovely hairstylist - who never paid attention to politics until Trump came along - told me the following two weeks after the Capitol disturbance:

1. Buffalo Horn Man was someone who went to antifa and other riots/protests around the country and he had little cameras in those horns taking videos of everything.
2. All of those laptops removed from the capital were turned over to the Trump team and forensic specialists and they were finding all of the dirt on Nancy, Biden, etc. and it was all going to come out before Jan. 20
3. Trump was going to be inaugurated on Jan. 20 because all would be revealed.
4. . . . .and other assorted conspiracy stuff.

She doesn't know who or what qAnon is (never followed anything on social media) and apparently gets this from a fellow church member. She had complete faith that God was going to step in, somehow PROVE that the election was filled with fraud and therefor Trump would be the legitimate President.

Yes, I still go to her - I cherish her for her talent, not her brains.

Matt Sablan said...

" What is your source of information to the contrary?"

-- Did the FBI enter a multi-pronged search for individuals using the full power of the state, including drafting national media into identifying people and having private companies offer private, customer information over without a warrant? Because, you can pretend "they arrested some people, so it's totally the same," meanwhile the rest of us remember loads of people calling to drag Trump out of his bunker and... well, let's just say hundreds of people weren't arrested for that. We remember the last time DC actually went up in flames during the 2016/7 inauguration festivities... and all those folks got off with a walk.

If you want to pretend there isn't a double standard, that's fine. But at least try and be creative in how you try to gaslight us.
