Within the days after the January riot, few Conservative lawmakers or media members have been keen to defend the rioters. As time has gone on, there was a push by Republican Reps. and Fox Information personalities to downplay the occasions of that day.
Lately, Tucker Carlson has began hinting that the folks arrested for his or her roles within the riots have been truly undercover FBI brokers. Frank Figliuzzi had a principle as to why Fox is permitting this.
The previous FBI agent started by telling Nicolle Wallace, “Let’s be clear right here, we’re not speaking about conspiracies that simply spontaneously sprung up from the inhabitants as they do — city legends that have to get swatted down or that tackle a lifetime of their very own — we’re taking a look at conspiracy as a deliberate technique.”
Figliuzzi then said of Fox:
“I feel that they’re frightened out of their minds that the FBI is definitely wanting on the root causes of this. And we’ve some affirmation of that as a result of NBC Information obtained one of many FBI interview transcripts of one of many January 6 defendants. And low and behold, what is likely one of the questions they requested him? ‘Are you aware anyone in Congress or congressional staffers? “If that’s turning into a standardized query beneath sure circumstances, they’ve each proper to be fearful and that’s why we’ll see them proceed to plant this cockamamy principle that the FBI did it.”
