New twists surface in FBI's Jan. 6 pipe bomb story

A report is providing new chapters in the FBI's Jan. 6 pipe bomb story.

That, roughly, documents how someone left two pipe bombs outside the Washington offices of the Republican and Democratic political parties the night before the Jan. 6 protest at the Capitol that turned into a minor riot.

More than three years later, it's unsolved, even though authorities released footage showing a suspect walking through that neighborhood about the time the bombs appeared.

Few other details are available but do include that the unknown individual wore Nike Air Max Speed turf shoes, a face mask, glasses and gloves, and a gray hooded sweatshirt.

Now a new and highly detailed report from Revolver News is presenting new questions under the headline, "Secret Service foreknowledge or criminal negligence?"

It begins by outlining the politicization of the events that day, to push the "accelerated political weaponization of the national security state against [President Donald] Trump and his supporters."

Among developments of late, the report said, was the release of "a damning short piece of footage that had gotten virtually no public attention, though it could very well be the breakthrough we need to definitively expose the phony January 6 'pipe bomb' story once and for all."

The report describes the video depiction of a man with a backpack going up to police and Secret Service vehicles.

The officers were there, outside the DNC offices, because Kamala Harris was inside.

The backpackman walks up to one side of a vehicle, then the other, and leaves. Then some two minutes later a metro officer gets out of his vehicle.

The report described it as "remarkable" that it took the "Metro and Secret Service over two minutes to even bother getting out of their cars after being informed of a pipe bomb in the neighborhood."

Then, the report said, their attitude is "astonishingly casual."

"Even if we assume that somehow the Secret Service and Metropolitan Police Department are wholly uninterested in the safety of their protectee, you would think they would at least get out of the vicinity for reasons of self-preservation. Quite the opposite—all of these officers are supremely comfortable standing and walking within spitting distance of the pipe bomb," the report said.

Further, some children cross the street "and walk directly in front of the benches where the bomb is still sitting," the report charged.

"The secret service agents don’t think to warn these children at all, but instead themselves walk right by the bench as well, without a care in the world! You have to see it to believe it."

Even further, a "Capitol Police officer walks right up to the pipe bomb and takes a picture."

The report continues, "Several deeply puzzling and disturbing questions arise from the video above. The most obvious question is what could account for the casual, lackadaisical, utterly unperturbed demeanor and behavior of the Secret Service and Metro PD officers in question upon being informed of an explosive device right outside the building in which their protectee is housed, and, for that matter, within feet of the agents themselves."

The report charges not only was there no concern for the "protectee" involved, but the officers had little concern for their safety.

"This complete lack of concern indicates that these agents somehow knew or were utterly confident that the bomb was inert and posed no threat, but how could they possibly know that? How could the Secret Service and metro PD officers be so confident that the pipe bomb wouldn’t pose a danger to themselves, to their protectee, VP elect Kamala Harris, and to the children they cavalierly allowed to walk within feet of the explosive device, and yet somehow the bomb was considered dangerous enough to require a bomb-safe robot to 'defuse' only minutes later?"

Still, other questions add to the problem, the report said, such as how were pipe bombs planted the evening before, and not noticed for 14 or 16 hours.

And just exactly what was involved in the Secret Service sweep of that building, driveway, parking, and entrances and exits before Harris arrived, the report demands.

The report continued with its questions, including those about timers found on the pipe bombs that were for an hour, even though the devices were planted the day before.

The reports, "It is simply imperative that we identify the man in the backpack who alerts the Secret Service and Metro PD to the DNC bomb and find out how he came to discover the bomb and why the Secret Service was wholly unperturbed by the information, to the point of allowing children to walk right past the explosives."

It explained that the Blaze later identified the backpack man as a plain-clothed officer working for Capitol Police but said that just raises further questions.
