Former FBI Official Tells House Republicans Bureau Denied Agents J6 Riot Footage To Protect Assets, Informants Present At U.S. Capitol | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A former FBI official claimed the bureau denied Boston Field Office agents access to 11,000 hours of U.S. Capitol video footage on January 6 out of fear it would reveal the identities of possible undercover officers and confidential informants present at the riot.

    Members of the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government shared video testimony during a hearing Thursday of George Hill, who worked as a supervisory intelligence analyst for the Boston Field Office. Hill alleged the bureau's Washington Field Office (WFO) pressured Boston agents to open investigations on 140 individuals who traveled to Washington, D.C., from Massachusetts to attend a political rally supporting former President Donald Trump on January 6, 2021.

    According to Hill, agents from the WFO told him to open 138 individual investigations based on their association with two Trump supporters who organized a bus trip transporting the group to Washington, D.C., and entered restricted areas of the nation's Capitol building. WFO officials provided pictures of the two individuals inside the Capitol but refused to provide video evidence.

    Hill told the WFO that Boston agents would look into the matter based on evidence that showed the 138 other individuals were inside the Capitol building, but would refuse to open up additional cases for simply attending a political rally - a First Amendment-protected activity.

    "To which WFO said, 'We can't show you those videos unless you can tell us the exact time and place those individuals were inside the Capitol,'" Hill said.

    Hill said when the Boston agents asked why they wouldn't allow access to 11,000 hours of surveillance video available, WFO agents allegedly said, "There may be UCs, undercovers, or CHSes, confidential human sources, and we need to protect their identities."

    Joseph Bonavolonta, the special agent-in-charge and Hill's supervisor, confirmed his colleague's account about WFO asking Boston to open investigations on all 140 individuals, according to the subcommittee's report. However, Bonavolonta also testified that FBI officials did not brief him on "that level of specificity" regarding Hill's claim that undercover officers were present in the Capitol.

    Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) asked FBI Director Christopher Wray at a House Homeland Security Committee hearing last year if the bureau had any confidential human sources dressed as Trump supporters during the Capitol riot.

    Wray stonewalled the direct question and denied FBI informants were in the crowd on January 6.

    "To the extent that there's a suggestion, for example, that the FBI's confidential human sources or FBI employees in some way instigated or orchestrated January 6, that's categorically false."

    A spokesperson for the FBI told The Daily Wire the bureau's mission is to "uphold the Constitution and protect the American people."

    "The FBI has not and will not retaliate against individuals who make protected whistleblower disclosures," the bureau said.

    The bureau did not return requests for comment regarding the claims made by Hill.

    House Republicans investigating the alleged weaponization of the federal government summoned three FBI whistleblowers, who testified about the bureau's "abuses of power."


    Former FBI special agents Garret O'Boyle and Steve Friend, as well as former FBI State Operations Specialist Marcus Allen, to speak in front of the House Select Committee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.

    The whistleblower's testimonies included details about how the bureau allegedly targeted American conservatives, directed agents to inflate so-called domestic violent extremism statistics to fit a political narrative for the Biden administration, and prioritized January 6 investigations over child sex crimes.

    Less than 24 hours before the former federal law enforcement staff testified, the FBI revoked Friend and Allen's top-security clearances for speaking out against "politicized rot" at the bureau.

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.
