From the cited article...

...One member of the far-right group Proud Boys who was attending the protest-turned-riot was keeping the FBI informed about what was going on, reveals the Times, citing confidential records....

I am not surprised that the FBI had an informant in a militia group.

The FBI probably had participants too.
Lots of other police departments did.

Oh so they knew it was a threat AND THE CAPITOL WAS STILL LEFT UNDEFENDED.

Because trump and bannon wanted it to be seized.

"The FBI probably had participants too."

You might be thinking about a DEA agent who was arrested for participating.

There's no evidence or even a suggestion that any FBI agents were involved.

"See?" "The fbi WAS in on it all along".

I want to believe.
But I wouldn't be surprised if there were some involved in the logistics planning.

This is a law enforcement tactic used for literally decades. Undercover law enforcement officials monitor the situation from on the ground and when agitators go beyond peaceful protest, they remove those people. Peaceful protestors should be thankful because they help prevent violent people from disrupting their constitutional right to protest.

Of course. Thanks for posting facts, even though it will be sneered at by the LEO haters here.

Yes. I get you PHESTERBOYLE.

BLM and ANTIFA causing about $2 Billion in damage, during a once in a century pandemic is OK.

I love how quickly the "Antifa" hoax died with Trump's presidency.
