Evidence Leaked Showing CIA Deploying Personnel To Jan 6

By Victor Winston, updated on March 16, 2024

A veil of secrecy has been lifted, revealing a surprising player in the United States Capitol events on January 6, 2021. A conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, has shattered the silence surrounding the CIA's peculiar involvement in domestic affairs during the Capitol unrest, a task far removed from its established foreign intelligence mission.

According to Breitbart, the Central Intelligence Agency, an organization known for its cloak-and-dagger operations on foreign soil, was found to have deployed teams to the Capitol on the fateful day when supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the building. This unexpected revelation came to light through text messages obtained by Judicial Watch following a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. The agency, with its roots deeply embedded in overseas espionage, is not generally permitted to engage in the shadows of domestic intelligence, a theater typically reserved for the FBI.

Chris Farrel of Judicial Watch expressed bewilderment over the CIA's involvement: "We have the same questions you do. What is a national intelligence collection agency whose mission is overseas doing operating domestically with law enforcement at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th?"

A Tangled Web of Agency Roles

The text messages unearthed by Judicial Watch detailed the deployment of "several" CIA teams at the Capitol, highlighting the presence of "two CIA bomb techs" addressing a suspicious scene involving pipe bombs near the Democratic and Republican National Committee headquarters. Additionally, messages mentioned "several CIA dog teams on standby," awaiting further instructions.

This precise coordination and rapid deployment of resources shed a stark light on the intensity of the situation as law enforcement and national security agencies grappled with the unfolding chaos.

Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch, underscored the significance of these discoveries: "These striking records show that CIA resources were deployed in reaction to the January 6 disturbance." This candid admission by Fitton not only confirms the CIA's activity on the ground but also raises profound questions about the extent of its involvement and the legal and constitutional implications thereof.

The Tumultuous Path to Transparency

The road to unearthing these facts was fraught with challenges. Judicial Watch was met with silence upon their initial FOIA request to the Justice Department, prompting the organization to sue for the release of these documents. The persistence of Judicial Watch eventually bore fruit, leading to the disclosure of documents originating from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), including the critical text messages that shone a light on the CIA's role in domestic operations.

The involvement of the CIA in the events of January 6 represents a remarkable departure from the agency's stated mission.

With information typically focused on foreign threats, the CIA's operations within the United States raise essential questions about jurisdiction, authority, and oversight in the complex web of national security. As noted on the FBI's website, "The CIA collects information only regarding foreign countries and their citizens. Unlike the FBI, it is prohibited from collecting information regarding ‘U.S. Persons.’"


Despite the pivotal insights provided by these documents, many details remain shrouded in mystery. The motivations behind the CIA's involvement, the extent of its operations, and the implications for privacy and civil liberties linger as points of contention and concern.

As Judicial Watch continues to sift through the waves of information brought to the fore, the broader implications of the CIA's actions that day continue to ripple through the corridors of power and public discourse.

Judicial Watch's revelation of the CIA's involvement in the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, through a FOIA request sheds light on the unexpected domestic deployment of the agency. This development highlights the blurred lines between foreign and domestic intelligence operations, raises crucial questions about legal and constitutional boundaries, and underscores the ongoing debate over transparency, accountability, and the balance between national security and civil liberties.
