Exclusive: Secret Commandos with Shoot-to-Kill Authority Were at the Capitol

Sunday, January 3, the heads of a half-dozen elite government special operations teams met in Quantico, Virginia, to go over potential threats, contingencies, and plans for the upcoming Joint Session of Congress. The meeting, and the subsequent deployment of these shadowy commandos on January 6, has never before been revealed.

Jeffrey A. Rosen, the acting Attorney General on January 6, made a unilateral decision to take the preparatory steps to deploy Justice Department and so-called “national” forces. There was no formal request from the U.S. Capitol Police, the Secret Service, or the Metropolitan Police Department—in fact, no external request from any agency. The leadership in Justice and the FBI anticipated the worst and decided to act independently, the special operations forces lurking behind the scenes.

The contingency units meeting on January 3 included the FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team, the FBI’s national “Render Safe” team, an FBI SWAT team from the Baltimore Field Office, Special Response Teams from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and the U.S. Marshals Service Special Operations Group.

All of these assets were “pre-deployed” and ready to go over the weekend of January 2-3, staging out of the FBI Academy complex in Quantico, 30 miles south of the Capitol building.

On the morning of January 6, most of these forces staged closer to downtown Washington, particularly after intelligence was received indicating a possible threat to FBI headquarters building or the FBI’s Washington Field Office.  

FBI tactical teams arrived on Capitol Hill early in the day to assist in the collection of evidence at sites—including the Republican and Democratic party national headquarters—where explosive devices were found. FBI SWAT teams and snipers were deployed to secure nearby congressional office buildings. Other FBI agents provided selective security around the U.S. Capitol and protection to congressional members and staff.

The presence of these extraordinary forces under the control of the Attorney General—and mostly operating under contingency plans that Congress and the U.S. Capitol Police were not privy to—added an additional layer of highly armed responders.

Let me get this straight:

The AG filled the basement of the Capitol with heavily armed and trained DOJ trigger pullers ready to lay waste to everyone who broke into the Capitol, but didn’t feel the need to use them.


The protesters who broke into the Capitol were violent and deadly insurrectionists who almost destroyed our democracy in an attempted coup?

If the protesters really were that much of a threat wouldn’t the DOJ trigger pullers gone upstairs and pulled some triggers?

It’s almost Ike J6 was no threat at all but the Democrats and media need to maintain the narrative that it was 9/11 Pearl Harbor Reichstag Fire for political purposes.

  1. You don’t suppose that 1) they deployed the troops because their provocateurs were feeding them information about who and how many might be coming and 2) they kept them in the basement because their provocateurs were feeding them information that there was no violence occurring? That would be tin foil hat territory!

  2. There is a lot to be learned here. According to Newsweek, some of the trigger pullers were part of the US military- “FBI sources tell Newsweek that military operators seconded to the FBI, and those on alert as part of the National Mission Force, were present in the metropolitan area.”

    So that begs a list of questions:
    1 Why were these people there?
    2 What did the military chain of command know about this?
    3 Were they in fact there as a contingency against Pence actually refusing to count the EC? Or were the events of January 6th the final act of an actual coup, carried out by Federal Bureaucrats?
    4 Who is actually calling the shots here?
    5 Reports are that this contingency force was larger than the DC NG units who would actually arrive later, so why didn’t they step in and secure the capitol?

    One thing is for sure- the Feds knew what was going down. They also knew that it was no real threat.

    If we actually had a functioning press corps, they would be investigating the shit out of this. This is a MUCH bigger story than Watergate ever was. If this were truthfully reported by actual journalists, there would be Pulitzers aplenty.

    1. DM,

      Even with a “truthful” and engaged media, I think J6 gets lost with all of the other “scandals” and plots against the previous administration. There are so many, everything just blurs into a white noise (Durham is still working on 2015/2016 shenanigans). As for your questions about J6 – in a very broad sense of everything that we know – my take – the FBI had instigators outside trying to get the right people to break into the capitol, and having accomplished that, they had people pre-positioned inside in case they lost control (worst case scenario). In the end, maybe they got what they wanted – enough chaos they can safely paint it as insurrection while at the same time no real harm was done. The optics can be used against the conservative right to further their agenda, which is now being carried out via the congressional committee.

      Interesting theory on these operators being there in case Pence didn’t tow the line and certify the vote. Anything is possible with this debacle.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
