House Republicans are finally using their majority for oversight.
So many actions of the deep state demand investigation.
And the top FBI lawman was asked one question about January 6 that had Democrats scrambling.
Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi launched a sham investigation into the Capitol Hill riot.
Pelosi’s January 6th House Select Committee was singularly focused on Donald Trump and none of the many questions that have gone unanswered.
Worse yet, Pelosi broke tradition and blocked GOP leadership from choosing its own committee members.
Now that Republicans are back in control of the House, they are asking questions about J6 that should have been addressed over the last two years.
FBI boss gets mad
Congressman Clay Higgins of Louisiana asked FBI Director Christopher Wray about the presence of federal agents on January 6, and Wray became indignant.
Higgins said, “Earlier this year, an FBI informant was reported to have—his quote, under oath— ‘marched to the U.S. Capitol with fellow Proud Boys members on January 6.’ He said he was communicating with his FBI handler while people were entering the U.S. Capitol. Can you confirm that the FBI had that sort of engagement with your own agents embedded within to the crowd on January 6?”
Wray answered, “If you are asking whether the violence at the Capitol on January 6 was part of some operation orchestrated by FBI sources and or agents, the answer is emphatically no!”
Wray’s righteous indignation would be more compelling if the FBI hadn’t orchestrated the botched Gretchen Whitmer kidnapping operation not long before January 6; the same FBI agent spearheaded both operations.
Higgins also asked about the presence of “ghost buses,” law enforcement vehicles painted to blend in.
Higgins said, “You know what a ghost vehicle is, Director? You’re director of the FBI. You certainly should.”
Wray said, “I’m not sure I’ve used that term before.”
Higgins then pointed to an image of two buses that had allegedly been filled with federal agents.
Higgins said, “It’s pretty common in law enforcement. It’s a vehicle that’s used for secret purposes. It’s painted over. These two buses in the middle here were the first to arrive at Union Station on January 6…I have all this evidence. I’m showing you the tip of this iceberg.”
Higgins was then abruptly cut off by Chairman Mark Green.

If the Whitmer kidnapping plot proved anything, it was that there was a high probability of agent provocateurs in the crowd on January 6.
Republicans need to keep digging in order to get to the bottom of the J6 security failures.
