The Federal Bureau of Investigation has reported that there is "scant evidence" that the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 was coordinated. And it only took the corrupted government organization seven months to determine that fact.
Federal officers and officials have arrested over 570 alleged participants since then, but they have recently released reports that the attacks were not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of President Donald Trump.
Four current and former officials have stepped forward to note that it was not an organized plot to overturn the loss of President Trump's results in the 2020 election.
A former senior law enforcement officer noted that "there was no grand scheme with Roger Stone and Alex Jones." Despite all of the major news outlets and mainstream media reporting that, that was the case for months, the FBI has now confirmed that the attack was not coordinated. Now, all we have to wait for is those who have been arrested and charged to be released from jail and have their records cleared. After all, if there was no planned attack, what is there to charge them with?
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.”
Stone, a veteran Republican operative and self-described “dirty trickster”, and Jones, founder of a conspiracy-driven radio show and webcast, are both allies of Trump and had been involved in pro-Trump events in Washington on Jan. 5, the day before the riot.
