Many on the left have implied that the January 6th Capitol riot was organized and intentionally orchestrated by higher powers. In reality, FBI has found little evidence that this is actually the case.
The Daily Caller reported, The FBI found little proof that the Jan. 6 Capitol riot was caused by a coordinated plan to upend the presidential election, four current and former law enforcement officials told Reuters.
The FBI does not believe that a “center[al] coordinate[ion]” between far-right groups or supporters of then-President Donald Trump preempted the riot, according to Reuters.
It’s more than likely that the storming of the Capitol happened as a consequence of place, time and mood.
It’s also worth noting that most of those who attend the march did not breach the Capitol, and were not involved in the damage or violence that occurred.
Despite this fact, conspiracy charges have been filed against 40 people in relation to the event. One defendant is a Proud Boy leader who is accused of recruiting members to stockpile military equipment before the 6th.
Partisan government prosecutors are following literal conspiracy theories, and using those baseless theories to implicate defendants in crimes that they likely weren’t even involved in, to bolster a political narrative.
