DOJ Claims Trump Tweet Started Jan 6, but Bodycam Suggests Tear Gas Sparked Crowd

Bodycam footage shows Capitol Police launching gas into the 1/6 crowd right before they pushed past police lines.

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.


“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.

          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.

            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.

        Those lyin’ eyes of mine. Those words are how you treat what you see and refuse to believe. I’m sure you’re a wonderful person and mean well but you must have a lot of insecurities if you cannot believe what your eyes are telling you.

    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.

    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.

      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.

    Another lie after lie from Garland, Wray & the “sham” of a committee who tried to push the american people to believe this garbage.
    The american people are smarter than this which is why the ratings were so low. In fact, one of the stupid committee members tried to sell a manuscript about their sham they were trying to push.
    The sooner these demos are out of office the better & the senate belongs to the republicans

    I have no doubt that there were agitators imbedded to stir up the crowd. They were able to cause the crowd to get out of hand and surge into the building. Things got out of hand but only minor damage was inflicted. But it was at most a peaceful demonstration. It never rose to the level of a riot, much less an insurrection. It certainly was nothing like the riots of Portland, Oregon that Schumer call a mostly peaceful demonstration.

    they have a video of a man dressed in all black. face covered, beating out a window and moved to the side to let people go in. He waved his hand back towards the window as to say go for it. Question is, why didn’t he go in? he even push a fake actor back for saying we shouldn’t do this. So the actor bowed his head and backed away. A true patriot would have punched him in the face and then try to block people from entering until giving permission. Those attacking police and breaking things should do time for stupidity. No matter what their political affiliation.
