New videos emerging online show the Capitol Police on January 6 by shooting flashbangs into what was then a peaceful crowd. The video shows them tear gassing protestors and beating up Trump supporters. The seemingly provocative actions by law enforcement, in those moments, appear to have set off the crowd, who in turn shouted expletives and grew more aggressive in reaction to the flashbangs, tear gas, and beatings.
Another video shared on Twitter by American Greatness writer Julie Kelly shows protesters being met with flashbangs and teargas as they stood in front of the Capitol building.
“The crowd became enraged at cops assaulting protesters with explosive devices that contained rubber bullets and beating protesters with batons and their fists,” tweeted Kelly. “I interviewed Mike Curzio, a detainee released after he pleaded guilty to one misdemeanor, who also confirmed police attacked peaceful protesters—said he saw 2 men suffer heart attacks in front of him from the shock of the explosives.”
National File recently confirmed the presence of undercover federal law enforcement embedded within the January 6 protest crowd. The report raises questions concerning the full extent of federal involvement in the violence that took place that day.
In an exclusive interview with Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ), the Arizona representative pointed to the kidnapping conspiracy case of Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer as “proof in the pudding” that undercover federal actors likely infiltrated the pro-Trump crowd on January 6 to sabotage the peaceful protest. In the Michigan case, which has widely been compared to January 6, it was revealed that the FBI had employed at least 12 undercover informants to infiltrate militia groups involved in the alleged kidnapping conspiracy, fueling concerns among observers that the “plot” may have been the result of entrapment by the federal government.
