Popular author, filmmaker and podcaster Dinesh D'Souza's most recent podcast discussed the FBI's potential and alleged involvement in terrorist plots in recent history, including the riot at the US Capitol.
"Just a little while ago on the podcast, I discussed in some detail a Revolver Magazine article suggesting that Jan.6 might have been, might have been, an FBI-orchestrated operation," said D'Souza: "Part of the evidence for this claim was the idea that a number of the most serious organizers of violence on Jan. 6 – there were some who did engage in violence – and some of the people who were the leaders of that remain to this day unindicted."
"Could it be that these are CIA guys or FBI guys or deep-state guys, and could it be that they were the instigators of Jan. 6?"
D'Souza then talks about how he read an article in Buzzfeed, "of all places", where they reveal that the suspects accused of attempting to kidnap Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer are claiming the FBI of set them up," he continued: "As it turns out, we now have information in the Whitmer kidnapping that there were 12 FBI agents or informants. Think about that. So, 13 people have been arrested in that plot, and 12 FBI informants or other people or involved. So out of 25, you could almost say half the operation is the FBI."
".... These informants were actively involved in the Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping plot from the beginning. In fact, it looks like one of them, a veteran named Dan – they're kind of concealing his last name – drove the whole plot," said D'Souza. "He was the guy who put the group together. He overcame the objections of people who didn't want to do it. He provided logistical support; he provided 'military training'."
"So at every stage, in fact, the very first meeting where the plotters first met one another, organized by the FBI," he continues, adding: "So, again, and I've said this before, there is a difference between the FBI infiltrating a group that has a pre-existing plot, or that concocts its own plot, and then the FBI observes the plot, and then busts it up, or arrests the perpetrators right before they are able to pull this off..."
"But no, in this case, it appears that this was an operation designed to cause the plot, and to move the plot forward, and of course, the question then becomes 'What is the FBI doing if it's driving a plot forward that would not have gone forward on this own?' Is it not the case that, in that situation, the FBI is in fact the engineer of this operation?" He adds: ".... In any event, what we need to know, both about the Whitmer case, but also about Jan.6, is: to what degree this was an FBI operation."
"Or, to put it in its bluntest terms: to what degree the most powerful domestic terrorist organization in America is not the Three-Percenters, it's not the Proud Boys, it's not the Oath Keepers, but is it the Federal Bureau of Investigation."
