Fox News host Tucker Carlson is suggesting that the FBI played a helping hand in the Jan. 6th Capitol riot. During a segment of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the host cited a report on the riot that led to the second impeachment of Trump and noted that some names were mysteriously left out of the reports and those individuals weren’t charged with any crimes. Carlson speculated that this could mean they were FBI operatives.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“But strangely, some people who participated in the riot haven’t been charged. Look at the documents. The government calls these people ‘unindicted co-conspirators.’ What does that mean? It means that in potentially every case, they’re FBI operatives,” Carlson said during a Tuesday segment of Tucker Carlson Tonight. “For example, one of those ‘unindicted co-conspirators’ is someone the government identifies only as ‘Person Two.’ According to those documents, Person Two stayed in the same hotel room as an ‘insurrectionist’ named Thomas Caldwell, who’s alleged to be a member of the group called the Oath Keepers. Person Two also ‘stormed the barricades’ at the Capitol on Jan. 6, alongside Thomas Caldwell.”
Carlson then said that 65-year-old Caldwell was “led to believe” there would be a “quick reaction force” ready to help at the Capitol. The quick reaction force was to be led by a person law enforcement only identified as “Person Three,” who also had a hotel room in the area and an accomplice.
“But wait. Here’s the interesting thing. Person Two and Person Three were organizers of the riot. The government knows who they are, but the government has not charged them. Why is that? You know why,” Carlson said. “They were almost certainly working for the FBI. So FBI operatives were organizing the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, according to government documents. And those two are not alone.”
Carlson then cites a report from Revolver News, which said there were “upwards of 20 unindicted co-conspirators in the Oath Keeper indictments, all playing various roles in the conspiracy, who have not been charged for virtually the exact same activities — and in some cases much, much more severe activities — as those named alongside them in indictments.”
Carlson also noted an announcement from the FBI a few months ago that said it was attempting to infiltrate as many dissident groups as it could to assess if they pose any threat.
