    Court Docs: FBI Had EIGHT Informants in Proud Boys Prior to January 6

    Published on

    It is known that on January 6, FBI informants visited the US Capitol. Although the American public would like to see more transparency about what they were doing, their roles are still unknown, official investigations into their activity are not progressing as quickly as those into those of other participants, and their actions were not as openly disclosed as they should have been.

    Citizens who are interested in learning what transpired that day are still asking themselves whether the informants had been infiltrated into activist groups. One publication investigated the FBI’s role by looking into court records and other information.

    “Court Docs: FBI Had EIGHT Informants in Proud Boys Prior to January 6,” reported Rusty Weiss on Wednesday for Political Insider.

    In the months preceding the incident on January 6, 2021, at the Capitol, it has been revealed through recent court records that the FBI had up to eight – EIGHT – informants infiltrated with the “Proud Boys” gang.

    The shocking revelation, which was reported by the New York Times, raises several concerns, not the least of which is how the FBI failed to put an end to the riot in the first place despite the presence of the eight informants within the group and the information they learned from working with the group.

    Additionally, it makes defense attorneys wonder whether or how much the group may have been tricked by the informants themselves.

    According to the New York Times, the number of informants was revealed in court documents filed by defense attorneys for five members of the Proud Boys who are presently on trial for seditious conspiracy.

    The defense said that “Some of the information the confidential sources had provided to the government was favorable to their efforts to defend their clients against sedition charges and was improperly withheld by prosecutors until several days ago.”

    “Because all of the material remains under a highly restrictive protective order, it is not possible to know what the informants told the government about the Proud Boys’ role in the Capitol attack or how that information might affect the outcome of the trial,” according to the Times.

    The New York Times reports that “The FBI had as many as eight informants inside the Proud Boys in the months around the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, recent court papers indicate, raising questions about how much federal investigators were able to learn from them before and after it took place.”

    More on this story via The Republic Brief:

    With this many informants involved in the days before the riot, it’s hard to fathom why the FBI didn’t use their knowledge to prevent the riot from taking place at all.

    “Questions about informants reporting to the government from inside extremist groups have been raised repeatedly throughout the Justice Department’s sprawling investigation of the Capitol attack,” the paper of record explains.

    “They have included concerns about why the informants were not able to give the government advanced warning about plans to storm the Capitol on Jan. 6 or seemingly to corroborate accusations after the fact that the groups conspired in plotting the attack.” CONTINUE READING…
