The January 6, 2021 gathering at the U.S. Capitol has been consistently in the news for the past five months (at the time of this writing). Republicans blow it off as the non-event that it, in reality, was (in terms of violence and destruction), but Democrats, of course, keep pushing the narrative that what occurred that day was an “insurrection” and an attempted coup. (Republicans would counter that the only coup that occurred happened with the massive election fraud on November 3, 2020).
Interestingly, current FBI Director, Chris Wray, testified before Congress about what occurred on January 6, 2021, and he made what, to many, will be a startling confession. Isabel Van Brugen writes,
FBI Director Chris Wray on Thursday testified that at least one individual was found with a gun inside the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6.
Wray made the remarks during an oversight hearing held by the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, suggesting that “serious charges” are still coming in the criminal investigation of the Capitol breach.
“This is a very ongoing investigation and there’s a lot more to come,” Wray said of a subgroup of protesters who are being investigated for bringing weapons into the Capitol building when it was breached on Jan. 6 . “I would expect to see more charges—some of them maybe more serious charges.”
Wray testified that a lot of the arrests and “more significant” charges that are coming out of the investigation currently are individuals who brought “all sorts of weapons” inside the Capitol building, including Kevlar, tactical vests, and bear spray.
“Firearms? Anybody bring firearms?” asked Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas).
“I can think of at least one instance where there was an individual with a gun inside the Capitol, but for the most part, the weapons were weapons other than firearms,” Wray responded.
Wray said that the FBI had divided the tens of thousands of protesters who were at the Capitol on Jan. 6 into three groups: “peaceful, maybe rowdy” protesters who didn’t participate in the breach and made up the biggest group, a second group who engaged in criminal trespass of the Capitol Building, and a third group—the smallest in number—who were responsible for carrying weapons into the Capitol.
So, Democrats and other leftists want to character the January 6, 2021 event at the Capitol as some kind of violent insurrection, an attempted coup, but there was only one non-law enforcement person who had a firearm? Really?
That’s a pretty pathetic armed insurrection, if you ask me. In fact, it sounds much more peaceful than all of those “mostly peaceful protests” which happened in multiple liberal cities throughout 2020, but we aren’t seeing any Federal investigations about that, are we?
The liberals in Washington truly have no shame.
