FBI Finds Scant Evidence U.S. Capitol Attack Was Coordinated-Sources (Reuters)

FBI Finds Scant Evidence U.S. Capitol Attack Was Coordinated-Sources (Reuters)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The FBI has found scant evidence that the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result, according to four current and former law enforcement officials.

Though federal officials have arrested more than 570 alleged participants, the FBI at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump, according to the sources, who have been either directly involved in or briefed regularly on the wide-ranging investigations.

"Ninety to ninety-five percent of these are one-off cases," said a former senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. "Then you have five percent, maybe, of these militia groups that were more closely organized. But there was no grand scheme with Roger Stone and Alex Jones and all of these people to storm the Capitol and take hostages."

...


Note: Unnamed sources of course.

1. I call BS...

I can see that it was coordinated and I am not even an investigator.

2. If its ninety to ninety five "one off"

then it's maybe TEN percent, not maybe five percent. Even their math is slippery.

4. It was "instigated" by Republicans, especially Trump, a form of "coordination"

It's not good that you have "five percent, maybe, of these militia groups that were more closely organized."

Basically, the ploy Trump and the Republicans under his command use is to act out and rile up. They don't tell people exactly what to do, but it is coordinative. It's classically Trumpian. Guys like Trump, Giuliani, and Josh Hawley didn't say, "breech the Capitol, warriors." They just said "fight" and "you're not going to have a country" and pumped their fist in the air. They said that kind of stuff to an angry mob. That's coordination.

Telling the mob of Trump supporters to fight was Trump's way of coordinating. It's the way he always coordinates. He makes it known what he wants. Gets results from scumbags. Then says they were fine, loving people after the fact. The people who take their life orders from him get it.

6. Like these guys?

The report also detailed that while the FBI was investigating the Nassar allegations, the head of the FBI’s field office in Indianapolis, W. Jay Abbott, was talking to Penny about getting a job with the Olympic Committee. He applied for the job but didn’t get it and later retired from the FBI, the report said.

Abbott also lied to investigators from the inspector general’s office multiple times in an effort “to minimize errors” made by his office in handling the case, the report found.

8. At the rally

Moe Brooks says to kick ass and take names,

Guilliani says trial by combat

Trump: you have to be strong.

That is one hell of a coincidence for these people to be talking like that for what is supposed to be a peaceful rally.

10. This FBI "report" is all the rage today on RW media.

It plays right into their alternative fact-based strategy of portraying the insurrection as no big deal, a mole hill that the Liberals are inflating for political gain.

11. And WE all know this is utter bullshit.

It was coordinated by Trump, his cohorts, members
of Congress and the Senate, and others.

Even Ginny Thomas paid for buses.

12. Large scale meetings the night before and phone traffic say otherwise.

Hell, they had a “war room” set up in a nearby hotel and phone traffic between insurrections and GQP congress critters and even WH staff would show that I bet.

If it were allowed to be released.

We need The House back in session now and the Truth out.

13. Didn't we all learn not to listen to some sources at the FBI in 2016?

Yeah, not buying this either.

Not well coordinated doesn't equal unplanned, anyway.

15. I would think the FBI would want to know the name of those "four unnamed sources"?

Where is Chris Wray?

18. It's how conspiracy works.

Nothing gets written down, yet a lot of evil happens.

Martin Lomasney, an old West End political boss from Boston, is best remembered for his warning to young politicians everywhere — “Never write if you can speak; never speak if you can nod; never nod if you can wink”.

Wray didn't even look at evidence, he just made up a conclusion he liked

Just the KAV investigation

20. The right wing line seems to be two contradictory explanations in quantum superposition ...

 

Yes I read right wing sites, though I won't link them here.

1) It was a peaceful protest and a few people got out of hand.
2) It was an FBI false flag.
