Another “conspiracy theory” has come true.
It is now confirmed that there was an FBI informant in the crowd on Jan 6th.
He was a member of the Proud Boys.
The FBI had an informant in the crowd during the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, The New York Times reported Saturday, citing confidential records it obtained.
The informant’s name was not revealed in the records, though he was affiliated with a Midwest chapter of the far-right group the Proud Boys, according to the newspaper.
Based on an account of the informant’s activities detailed in the records, the informant described meeting up with men from other Proud Boys chapters at 10 a.m. at the Washington Monument and eventually entering the Capitol.
The informant entered after debating whether to do so, the Times reports. He left through a window after police told him that someone had been shot—likely Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt, the newspaper noted.
The informant has since denied that the Proud Boys intended to use violence on Jan. 6, but rather were consumed by herd mentality. He has also denied that the group planned to attack the Capitol in interviews, the Times reported.
The FBI told the Times in a statement that while it doesn’t discuss its sources and methods, “it is important to understand that sources provide valuable information regarding criminal activity and national security matters.”
