FBI lost count of how many paid informants were at Capitol on Jan. 6


The FBI had so many paid informants at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, that it lost track of the number and had to perform a later audit to determine exactly how many “Confidential Human Sources” run by different FBI field offices were present that day, a former assistant director of the bureau has told lawmakers.

At least one informant was communicating with his FBI handler as he entered the Capitol, according to Steven D’Antuono, formerly in charge of the bureau’s Washington field office.

D’Antuono has testified behind closed doors to the House Judiciary Committee that his office was aware before the riot that some of their informants would attend a “Stop the Steal” rally thrown by former President Donald Trump, but he only learned after the fact that informants run by other field offices also were present, along with others who had participated of their own accord.

The Washington field office had to ask FBI headquarters “to do a poll or put out something to people saying w[ere] any CHSs involved,” he said, so they could get a handle on the scale of the FBI’s spying operations at the Capitol that day.

One paid informant from the Kansas City field office was at the Capitol as the crowd surged inside and allegedly was in communication with his FBI handler “while they were in the crowd, I think, saying that they were going in,” according to the former bureau brass…

  1. Remember something. Donald Trump said he knew the swamp, was going to ‘drain’ it. After 4 years of FBI investigations against him, an impeachment, and basically being opposed by his own government, Trump never warned anyone on 1/6 that there would or could be feds among them. He said to ‘peacefully ‘ protest, but meekly and after ginning up the crowd.

    Is Trump truly stupid or is he part of all of this?

    1. He’s part of it. So much so that I’m really starting to believe he’s going to be reinstalled (with a WEF VP, Ramashwami or Tulsi) to neutralize the resistance and usher in the next phase of the agenda.

  2. Was Habaes Corpus suspended without the public knowing?
    Years ago, I came across a cassette tape: Dr.Eugene Schroder War and Emergency Powers Special Report 1994
    I was shocked and still have the tape. Surprised as it is now available online.
