Chris Salcedo – Joining me now, Louisiana Congressman Clay Higgins. Congressman. Merry Christmas. Glad to see you. You recently grilled FBI Director Christopher Ray regarding the FBI’s role on January 6. Let’s play a clip of that for the folks at home.
Rep. Clay Higgins – “A year later, we the people still do not have a definitive answer from you or anyone else in the Biden administration regarding the FBI presence and participation…Can you confirm that the FBI had that sort of engagement with your own agents embedded within to the crowd on January 6?”
Chris Wray – “If you are asking whether the violence at the Capitol on January 6 was part of some operation orchestrated by FBI sources and or agents, the answer is emphatically.”
Rep. Clay Higgins – “You’re saying no.”
Rep. Clay Higgins – “No.”
Chris Salcedo – In my opinion, it appears the FBI, Congressman, as it targets one political party, targets whole religions, has turned into a quasi secret police force targeting Americans rather than defending us. How do you see it?
Rep. Clay Higgins – Yeah, very similar from my perspective, sir. The FBI was not only involved in the actions on January 6 from within, they had, I suspect, over 200 agents embedded within the crowd, including agents or as they would call, human assets inside the Capitol dressed as Trump supporters before the doors were opened. Beyond that, the FBI had embedded themselves and infiltrated online chat groups and websites and social media accounts across the country with any group that was discussing objections to COVID oppression. And the FBI effectively infiltrated those groups. And when you track the text threads and the communications within those groups and find the origins of suggestions of potential violence or an active occupation of the Capitol on January 6, you’ll find that those messages were led by members of the groups that ended up to be the FBI agents that had infiltrated the group.
So the FBI’s involvement was deep, not just on J Six, but on the days and weeks and months prior. And of course, the video that’s just recently been released also showing the Capitol Police welcoming in people into the Capitol, not trying to keep them out as we were led to believe initially undermining this whole insurrection narrative.
Chris Salcedo – Congressmen were also now learning through new court documents special inquisitor jack Smith demanded a list of Twitter users that liked or retweeted social media posts from President Trump. Congressman, as the Democrats have largely abandoned the Constitution and with the corruption that we’ve all witnessed at FBI and DOJ, it doesn’t take much imagination to see socialists in the Democrat Party using a list like that for government threats, government intimidation, and government coercion. Can Republicans in good conscience continue to fund a DOJ and its operatives in light of their partisan and what I see as anti American actions, conservatives, Republicans certainly stand against funding a DOJ and FBI that has clearly weaponized against American people.
Rep. Clay Higgins – We’re taking a hard look at rebuilding the whole thing. So let me say regarding Jack Smith and his request for another list of American citizens under some alleged legitimate investigative effort. I consider it a badge of honor to be on another one of Jack Smith’s list. So I can just say that his days are numbered and American patriots are not going to stand idly by a good sir and allow our republic to dissolve. We are prepared to legally and peacefully and within the parameters of the constitution with every ounce of our might and focus. The leftist will not take our country from us. We are standing strong. And I thank you for being a voice of truth and freedom.
