FBI Concerned Capitol Attack Was Funded by Foreign Governments

The story of the Capitol siege appears to be far from over. 

As we continue to learn more about the ins-and-outs of the January 6th attack on the Capitol, there are several worrisome storylines coming to light.

The most obvious and glaring realization that many of us are coming to is that there was a plan all along, and that some within both Congress and the Capitol Police may have been involved.

Just how much premeditation went into the attack has yet to be fully understood, especially as law enforcement is forced to use resources on the current, upcoming threats that continue to spring up surrounding Biden’s inauguration.  And, according to the FBI, it is possible that some of that planning didn’t even happen here in the USA.

As part of the investigation, the bureau is examining payments of $500,000 in bitcoin, apparently by a French national, to key figures and groups in the alt-right before the riot, the sources said. Those payments were documented and posted on the web this week by a company that analyzes cryptocurrency transfers. Payments of bitcoin, a cryptocurrency, can be traced because they are documented on a public ledger.

And that’s not all.

Separately, a joint threat assessment issued this week by the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and various other federal and D.C.-area police agencies noted that since the Jan. 6 riot, “Russian, Iranian, and Chinese influence actors have seized the opportunity to amplify narratives in furtherance of their policy interest amid the presidential transition.”
