Top January 6 Investigator: FBI, Other Federal Agencies Could Have Stopped Riot If They Did Their Jobs | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Ryan Saavedra.

    The chief investigative counsel for the House January 6 committee concluded that failures by federal law enforcement officials played a significant role in the January 6 riot and if those agencies had simply acted on the intelligence they had before hand, they could have prevented the riot.

    Former federal prosecutor Tim Heaphy revealed his findings to NBC News in an exclusive interview Tuesday, which the Democrat-controlled committee "left out of its televised hearings and final report."

    Heaphy said that while former President Donald Trump was "the proximate cause" for the events of that day, "what happened at the Capitol was also affected by law enforcement failures to operationalize the ample intelligence that was present before Jan. 6, about the threats of violence."

    "Law enforcement had a very direct role in contributing to the security failures that led to the violence," he said. "There was a lot of advance intelligence about law enforcement, about carrying weapons, about the vulnerability of the Capitol. The intel in advance was pretty specific, and it was enough, in our view, for law enforcement to have done a better job."

    The report noted that the highly politicized committee not only chose to downplay his findings, but at times went as far as to "contradict" his conclusions.

    The report outlined the following conclusions that Heaphy said that investigators found:

  • The Capitol Police failed to deploy enough force to defend the building, but the FBI and DHS, the federal agencies charged with collecting intelligence about domestic extremists, didn't do enough to sound the alarm about the threat.
  • The FBI and DHS were too cautious about exploiting so-called "open source" intelligence gleaned from social media out of misplaced concern about free speech violations.
  • The FBI and DHS made a crucial error by not publishing a Joint Intelligence Bulletin about the threats they were seeing, which might have prompted a more robust defense of the Capitol.
  • There was confusion about which federal agency was in charge, hampering the response once the Capitol was breached.

    Heaphy said that mistakes were made that led to law enforcement not acting on tips they received that violence may break out that day, tips that were submitted weeks in advance.

    "Even if individual tips don't, by themselves, provide enough specific and credible information to take an investigative step, take a step back. If there are 50 such tips, aggregate intelligence suggests, 'Hey, maybe we have a problem,'" Heaphy said. "That was the failure here."

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.

Considering what has happened to our Representative Republic since the corruptive orthodoxy that led to the tolerated abomination - The Russia Hoax - where felonies were perpetrated upon the American People by the creation of the Two Tiered Justice System, in the misnomer of "Social Justice:" Where do you stand on sustaining our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms in a society where injustice is chronically sanctioned by one political orthodoxy?
  I believe in a perfected society by employing a higher governmental authority to train the behavior of the public.
  The United States Constitution does not allow just a few freedoms, it guarantees ALL freedoms promised to Humankind by God.
  Just don't take away my Social Media.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.
