The FBI warned of "War" at the Capitol

contradicting claims there was no indication of looming violence AND giving us the name the murderous loons use for their opponents: Pantifa

A day before rioters stormed Congress, an FBI office in Virginia issued an explicit internal warning that extremists were preparing to travel to Washington to commit violence and “war,” according to an internal document reviewed by The Washington Post that contradicts a senior official’s declaration the bureau had no intelligence indicating anyone at last week’s pro-Trump protest planned to do harm.

A situational information report approved for release the day before the U.S. Capitol riot painted a dire portrait of dangerous plans, including individuals sharing a map of the complex’s tunnels, and possible rally points for would-be conspirators to meet up in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and South Carolina and head in groups to Washington.

“As of 5 January 2021, FBI Norfolk received information indicating calls for violence in response to ‘unlawful lockdowns’ to begin on 6 January 2021 in Washington. D.C.,” the document says. “An online thread discussed specific calls for violence to include stating ‘Be ready to fight. Congress needs to hear glass breaking, doors being kicked in, and blood from their BLM and Pantifa slave soldiers being spilled. Get violent. Stop calling this a march, or rally, or a protest. Go there ready for war. We get our President or we die. NOTHING else will achieve this goal.”

BLM is likely a reference to the Black Lives Matter movement for racial justice. Pantifa is a derogatory term for antifa, a far-left anti-fascist movement whose adherents sometimes engage in violent clashes with right-wing extremists. Yet even with that information in hand, the report’s unidentified author expressed concern that the FBI might be encroaching on free speech rights.

The warning is the most stark evidence yet of the sizable intelligence failure that preceded the mayhem, during which five people died, although one law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity to avoid disciplinary action, said the failure was not one of intelligence, but of acting on the intelligence.

An FBI official familiar with the document said that within 45 minutes of learning about the alarming online conversation, the Norfolk FBI office wrote the report and shared it with others within the bureau. It was not immediately clear how many law enforcement agencies outside the FBI were told, but [bold]the information was briefed to FBI officials at the bureau’s Washington field office the day before the attack, this official said.[/bold]

Mmmm I’m not sure I’d take anything the FBI has to say on the matter at face value. They were nowhere to be found for several hours.

What a shock. I wish someone could explain why everyone trusts Christopher Wray. He was appointed by Trump years ago and was never fired or pushed out. People who aren't fired or pushed out are the people who do whatever Trump wants them to do. The FBI is compromised and half of them probably actively participate in this shit.

R1, I think you completely missed the point.

The FBI didn’t “say” this. They said they had no intelligence that anything was afoot. A memo from a day before proves them wrong. Why would whoever leaked the memo be lying about that? They’re probably pissed at the rap the Bureau is taking over not being there for hours.

We’ll this fella sounds nice.

Sounds like a plan!

Wait. Why am I the only one? Did you pussies back off or something after a bullet shredded my neck?

by Anonymousreply 501/12/2021

Sure they did. Then sat around on their asses and did nothing because?

Like r2 said, probably half of these sonsofbitches were participating in this little coup attempt so weren't available. Or wouldn't have done anything anyway.

They're just trying to cover their asses now.

They have been MIA for 4 years while a dangerous psychopath damaged the country, planet, and committed genocide on us. They are all in with the fascists.

How does a leaked memo indicating they knew there would be violence, after they said they had no idea there would be “cover their ass”?

It makes them look like fucking morons.
