WaPo excerpt

A day before rioters stormed Congress, an FBI office in Virginia issued an explicit internal warning that extremists were preparing to travel to Washington to commit violence and “war,” according to an internal document reviewed by The Washington Post that contradicts a senior official’s declaration the bureau had no intelligence indicating anyone at last week’s pro-Trump protest planned to do harm.

A situational information report approved for release the day before the U.S. Capitol riot painted a dire portrait of dangerous plans, including individuals sharing a map of the complex’s tunnels, and possible rally points for would-be conspirators to meet up in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and South Carolina and head in groups to Washington.

“As of 5 January 2021, FBI Norfolk received information indicating calls for violence in response to ‘unlawful lockdowns’ to begin on 6 January 2021 in Washington. D.C.,” the document says. “An online thread discussed specific calls for violence to include stating ‘Be ready to fight. Congress needs to hear glass breaking, doors being kicked in, and blood from their BLM and Pantifa slave soldiers being spilled. Get violent. Stop calling this a march, or rally, or a protest. Go there ready for war. We get our President or we die. NOTHING else will achieve this goal.”

Here's an MSN reprint of the Post's reporting.

Funny thing, original reporting. It’s what I pay my subscription for ...

The FBI doesn’t look like “war” was a serious threat. Toss them back onto the dysfunctional pile.

Anyone remember 9/11? Our new Homeland Security department was supposed to prevent all of this. Oh wait that was for brown skin. We got REALLY good with that.

FBI is full of Trumpists and other white supremacists, like the military and most police forces around the country. Look how many forces are saying "whoops some of our people were there on the 6th. Or at least wanted to be. "

We either deal with all this now or we continue to suffer violence and abuse from these people.

Weed them out.
