New video seems to contradict the Department of Justice’s claim that the crowd of January 6 protesters was initially provoked by a tweet from 45th President Donald Trump.
President Donald Trump tweeted his disapproval over Vice President Mike Pence’s decision not to remedy concerns over the 2020 election results during that day’s joint session of Congress, the legislative procedure that would officially certify Joe Biden as the winner.
“Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth,” Trump tweeted at 2:24 p.m. on January 6, 2021.
That tweet, according to the Department of Justice, the partisan January 6 committee, and its media allies, was the catalyst that made the crowd push through police lines at the Capitol building near the inaugural stage.
At 2:26 p.m., two minutes after Trump’s tweet, Pence was evacuated to a secure location within the Capitol building, and protesters pushed forward.
However, newly released Justice Department bodycam video shows law enforcement officers shooting tear gas toward the front lines of the crowd at this exact time. In the mayhem, the officers retreat from the crowd of now-agitated protesters.
🚨DOJ CAUGHT LYING ABOUT J6🚨
CBS reports DOJ claim that Trump tweet about Pence caused supporters to rush through police lines at 2:24

“Hey Rich, put it over the f**king scaffolding,” one police officer is heard saying before the munitions were launched into the crowd.
Some have accused U.S. Capitol Police and DC Metropolitan Police of escalating tensions by launching tear gas, flash grenades, and rubber bullets into the then-peaceful crowd that day.
The news comes as additional surveillance video from the U.S. Capitol on January 6 continues to seemingly poke holes in the “insurrection” narrative set forth by the partisan January 6 Committee, and with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy promising to fully release all 44,000 hours of footage to the public.

“CNN actually got to be in the Statuary Hall for a whole hour for their own show. You’ve watched that, January 6 would release only certain tapes,” said McCarthy. “I think it’s better for transparency that anyone can make their own decision up.”
Among other revelations included the discovery that Capitol Police escorted peaceful protesters throughout the building and in one case, even into the Senate chamber.

False. 1/6 was the King of Vaccines final gift to the globalists that owned him from the moment he announced his candidacy. There’s nothing more despicable than leading your most loyal patriots and followers into a trap to be deemed terrorists.

DLC, nice anti-Trump, controlled opposition post. Gotta get that RNC ticket split so you can keep the dems in power, right DNC-oops-I mean, DLC.

I voted for him twice (reluctantly the 2nd time). I would never vote for him again under ANY circumstances. There’s nothing more insidious than an enemy that pretends to be your friend. It’s amazing that people still don’t see it, but that’s because they don’t realize the ‘alternative’ media is just as controlled as the MSM.

More people than you realize feel that way. me included, and I know multiple others.

Paul Allen is a typical boomer that will never wake up to the fact that Trump is the ultimate con man. I voted for him twice as well. I was fooled, and I admit it. I’m only human, but at this point if you can’t see it you’re too far gone.

Hey DLC! Are you enjoying Bidenflation? You seem to hold onto the niggeRAT party lies about that day! I guess you didn’t watch the vid that was released. Well, you’re an ignorant man, so that wouldn’t surprise me.

The crowd was too peaceful, (except for a handful of FBI guys) so the Capital police had to make the crowd violent with tear gas, flash bangs and batons.

The DOJ is full of s41t. They have made a mockery of justice

This means that Thau’s actions were deliberate actions intended to incite the crowd to riot and then because they still wouldn’t riot, even after being bombarded illegally with gas and exploding munitions, he deliberately causes the police defense to crumble because he deliberately tear gases his own police to allow the crowd to push up to the capitol (watch the video, it was not accidental). I believe Thau was under orders to do what he did.

funny how they say Trump tweeted and protester responded when on that day in Dc at the Capital NO ONE’s phone worked,…NO SERVICE!!
all service was jammed…..you couldn’t send or receive anything!!!

Being sarcastic and very very suspicious of Gov I have to say, Is your comment true? I saw the police(gov) firing rubber bullets and Gas grenades before the crowd erupted. Then, there’s the 15 FBI and 20+ antifa agitators urging the crowd on.
