Law enforcement officials lay out evidence Capitol riot was 'coordinated' attack
By John Bowden - 02/23/21 11:57 AM EST


Top current and former law enforcement officials testifying Tuesday before a joint Senate hearing on the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol told lawmakers that evidence pointed to coordination and planning behind the mob of people that overwhelmed Capitol Police officers during the attack.

Asked by Senate Homeland Security Committee Chair Gary Peters (D-Mich.) about what non-classified evidence he could point to that led him to determine the attack was "coordinated," former Capitol police chief Steven Sund pointed to rioters coming prepared with "climbing gear" and "chemical spray," which he argued had no place at a legitimate demonstration.

"I'm able to provide you a quick overview of why I think it was a coordinated attack. One, people came specifically with equipment. You're bringing in climbing gear to a demonstration. You're bringing in explosives. You're bringing in chemical spray ... you're coming prepared," he told the senators.


"The fact that the group that attacked our west front [did so] approximately 20 minutes before [former President Trump's rally] ended, which means that they were planning on our agency not being at what they call 'full strength,'" Sund added.

Sund also pointed to the discoveries of pipe bombs outside of the respective Republican and Democratic party headquarters, which he said were likely used to draw police resources away from the Capitol during the riot.

Here's a first-hand account, posted at The Federalist. It's very similar to what our friend told us about probable provocateurs.

I Saw Provocateurs At The Capitol Riot On Jan. 6
The deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol bore the markings of an organized operation planned well in advance of the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress.

The deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol bore the markings of an organized operation planned well in advance of the Jan. 6 joint session of Congress.

A small number of cadre appeared to use the cover of a huge rally to stage its attack. Before it began, I saw from my vantage point on the West Front of the Capitol what appeared to be four separate cells or units:

    *Plainclothes militants. Militant, aggressive men in Donald Trump and MAGA gear at a front police line at the base of the temporary presidential inaugural platform;
    *Agents-provocateurs. Scattered groups of men exhorting the marchers to gather closely and tightly toward the center of the outside of the Capitol building and prevent them from leaving;
    *Fake Trump protesters. A few young men wearing Trump or MAGA hats backwards and who did not fit in with the rest of the crowd in terms of their actions and demeanor, whom I presumed to be Antifa or other leftist agitators; and
    *Disciplined, uniformed column of attackers. A column of organized, disciplined men, wearing similar but not identical camouflage uniforms and black gear, some with helmets and GoPro cameras or wearing subdued Punisher skull patches.

All of these cells or groups stood out from the very large crowd by their behavior and overall demeanor. ...

Did Sund mention that the pipe bombs were planted the day before Trump's speech that supposedly incited the riot?

Did Sund point out that the materials he claims the rioters brought would have had to be prepared and brought on site before Trump's speech that supposedly incited the riot?

Another political invention,and cluelessness for months afterward about the event was manufactured by democrats for full political advantage.
 How many times do they have to boldly invent crisis before even the dummies get tired of laughable denial?
