Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) issued a letter to FBI Director Chris Wray on Wednesday demanding information about federal infiltration of militia and patriot groups in the lead-up to the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol protest that turned violent.Gaetz said: “As the events of January 6, 2021, come to clearer relief many questions remain unanswered. On June 8, 2021, the Senate Homeland Security Committee and the Senate Rules Committee jointly produced a 95-page report finding problems ranging from ‘federal agencies failing to warn of a potential for violence, to a lack of planning and preparation by U.S. Capitol police and law enforcement leadership.’”He posed the following three questions to Wray, demanding a written response by Aug. 1, 2021:“1. In the year leading up to the events on 1/6 and on 1/6 itself, to what extent were the three primary militia groups (the Oath Keepers, the Proud Boys, and the Three Percenters) infiltrated by agencies of the federal government (including the FBI), or informants of said agencies?2. Exactly how many federal undercover agents or confidential informants were present at the Capitol or in the Capitol during the “siege” and what roles did they play (merely passive informants or active instigators)?3. Of all the unindicted co-conspirators referenced in the charging documents of those indicted for crimes on 1/6, how many worked as a confidential informant or as an undercover operative for the federal government (FBI, Army, Counterintelligence, etc.)?”The letter comes after a powerful segment on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight where Revolver News publisher Darren Beattie explained possible federal infiltration causing the violence on Jan. 6 while connecting the incident to the phony kidnapping hoax of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.Gaetz posted the clip on his Twitter account:
Matt Gaetz is a warrior. One of the few we have.
