Capitol Security Officers Take Wrecking Ball to Conspiracy Talk at Senate Hearing: This Was a Planned, Coordinated Attack

By Colby HallFeb 23rd, 2021, 11:55 am

The Senate Hearing about the Capitol attacks on Jan. 6 opened with some revealing commentary by four current and former security officials involved on that day.

After opening statements, Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) asked some simple yes or no questions designed to removed some opacity over what happened on that historic day and what really was going on during the deadly attacks led by Trump supporters.

“Based on what we know now, including the recent department of justice indictments, do you agree that there is now clear evidence that supports the conclusion that the January 6th insurrection was planned and it was a coordinated attack on the U.S. Capitol?” Senator Klobuchar asked. All four officials agreed.

“Would you agree that this attack involved white supremacists and extremist groups?” she followed, to which everyone also agreed. “Would you agree that this was a highly dangerous situation which was horrific, but could have actually been worse without the courage of the officers that you commanded?” Klobuchar asked, to which everyone also agreed.

The former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, who resigned after the attack, then answered the next questions and revealed that he was not made aware of an FBI intelligence report about the attacks that had been filed the day before, and explained that the Capitol Police does not have it’s own intelligence operation and is solely reliant on that which is shared with him by 18 federal intel agencies.

When the truth comes out I'll bet he was aware AHEAD OF TIME that this was coming on Jan. 6th.

26. I know.

Shows how far America has fallen.

I think it started with Nixon, sold as pablum by Reagan, and mostly downhill since! On the R side, that is.

Effin' racists.

I was glad her liberal California self was there to vote for 4 years. I’m always hopeful Wisconsin will come to its senses.

ya didn’t have to bring liberals in to help - try at least - elect the right people in Wisconsin 😊. The U does seem to be kind of a liberal magnet. I live in MN, and every kid I’ve known that looked at, or went to Madison, from here or, elsewhere outside Wisconsin, was a good liberal.

I hope the people of Wisconsin have had enough of him by then. The Democrats need to go after this guy and push hard to defeat him.

5. The biggest irony was Hawley asking them

if they were complicit. I wish one of them would have said "no, but you were".

Correction: not one of them, all of them.

7. NEXT to be questioned: FBI

Question: Why did the FBI NOT make the Capitol Police aware of the FBI intelligence report about the attacks? WHO made the decision NOT to make that report available?


Then get that person.

WHO told you NOT to share the FBI intel report.


Ask those people those simple questions and the string will lead to .......

12. But that Steven Sund guy(ex-Capitol Police Chief,

included “Antifa” when he remarked about the rabble on Jan 6th.

Did anyone question him about that? WERE THERE actual Antifa people there? Where did he get that? How does he know? Or is he just guessing and “sweeping it all up” together in some big miasma of nogoodniks that day?

Asking because we slept in and missed most of the hearing.

18. First of all, Sen. Amy Klobuchar is a national treasure. Second, the "Antifa did it!" argument

is another classic example of right-wingers accusing the left of doing that thing they themselves are guilty of, in this case, of being agents provacateurs.

From a May 2020 Just Security.org website article:


The protests that have torn through the United States, following the murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minnesota police officers, shift the emphasis in real time videos broadcast nationally. The images challenge our beliefs about who is really protesting and for what reason.

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz echoed this sentiment in a press conference on Saturday alleging that the demonstrations that caused so much damage included provocateurs, likely from outside the area. State officials said around 80 percent of those arrested in the Twin Cities on Friday were from outside Minnesota. Former FBI agent and CNN commentator, Josh Campbell wrote, that Minnesota “authorities have been monitoring alleged criminals online, including postings by suspected white supremacists trying to incite violence.”

Before the rioting started in Washington DC, Brooklyn, Denver, Atlanta, and other cities, allegations emerged that undercover police officers might be to blame for some of the worst commercial destruction in Minneapolis. Experts on political violence (and not just Qanon conspiracy theorists) shared stories on social media that the May 27 looting and arson at AutoZone by an unidentified man in a gas mask carrying an open umbrella (dubbed #umbrellaman) was not necessarily a protester but could be an agent provocateur or member of the police. In video posted to YouTube, while this man smashed windows with a hammer, protesters at the scene accused him of being an outsider and began to film him.

23. Minneapolis Precinct 3 Fire

Video shot that night shows a person later identified as Hunter firing 13 rounds from a semiautomatic assault-style rifle on the 3rd precinct police station while people believed to be looters were inside. He then high-fived another person and shouted, “Justice for Floyd!” according to the complaint.

Later, he privately messaged Steven Carrillo, another alleged “Boogaloo Boi” in California, urging him to “go for police buildings”, according to the federal criminal complaint.

“I did better, lol,” Carrillo allegedly replied.

Hours before Carrillo sent that message, according to the complaint, federal prosecutors say Carrillo had driven to Oakland with an accomplice, and, as protesters were demonstrating blocks away, shot two officers guarding a federal courthouse in downtown Oakland, killing one, David Patrick Underwood.

This is a classic example of right-wingers trying to blame BLM or Antifa for their false flags. That's why when they found a pig's head in Speaker Pelosi's driveway and a graffiti that said "$2K rent. We want everything" along with an Anarchist symbol, I knew it was right-wingers.

30. Wow. Thanks for the article.

I know next to nothing about Antifa, but just the fact that they're left leaning makes me think that they are not naturally bent on causing harm to others, and that their intent is not anarchy but social justice.

And I'm pretty sure that they would not stoop so low as to behead some poor pig.

24. God there's a pile of stupid here. Not to mention lying to cover for, and encourage seditionists.

They should all be censured and/or removed. They are not Americans. I really don't know who they report to, but it ain't your average American. Hawley, Johnson, Cruz, Graham, Louis the Gomer, and on and on. Who is funding these assholes, or is it so widespread there are too many donors to track?
