‘Judas’: Pence defends FBI over speculation bureau played key role in Jan 6 riots

Former Vice President Mike Pence cemented his RINO reputation on Sunday when he dismissed what more and more Americans are coming to realize: The FBI played a huge part in instigating the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol in 2021.

Pence appeared on CNN’s “State of the Union” and told host Jake Tapper everything he could have wanted to hear.

“I’ve seen the director of the FBI repeatedly assure the American people that the FBI were not the instigators of the riot that occurred on January 6,” Pence said.

He went on to praise the bureau’s efforts to lock up conservatives who were at the Capitol that fateful day.

“Frankly, I’m very grateful for the efforts of the FBI to bring nearly a thousand people to justice who ransacked our Capitol and did violence against police officers to that day,” Pence said.

“You’re right,” he told Tapper. “We’ve been assured again and again that it was not the case, and I just must tell you, having been there that day, to see people literally breaking windows, ransacking the Capitol, it just infuriated me. I remember thinking, ‘Not this. Not here. Not at the United States Capitol.'”

It was a dramatic regurgitation of the Democrats’ official narrative, but it ignored mounting evidence that the FBI was, indeed, likely behind the “ransacking.”

As BizPac Review reported, Republican Louisiana Rep. Clay Higgins, a former law enforcement officer and military veteran, recently sat down with Tucker Carlson and claimed there were “well over 200” FBI assets present at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

“I had reviewed compelling evidence that the FBI had assets, human assets dressed as Trump supporters inside the Capitol prior to the doors being open and the masses allowed in,” he told Carlson.

“[S]ome of that evidence shockingly reveals that the FBI agents were operating undercover within the online groups across the country and were the first ones to plant the seeds of suggestions of a more radical occupation of the Capitol,” Higgins said. “And they were sort of testing the waters of who amongst that group would begin acknowledging that, ‘You maybe we should do that. Maybe we should plan for an occupation like that.'”

“But if you look at the origins of those conversations,” he stated, “they were started by the FBI, an undercover guy that was operating inside the group.”

On X, many were disgusted with Pence for giving the FBI a pass.

“Judas……part of the Coup,” one user wrote.

Others simply dismissed Pence’s dismissal.

“[Mike Pence] is a liar,” said one user on X. “And [CNN] is a money-losing network that has a tiny, little following of low-information voters.”
