WATCH: Newly Released January 6th Footage Confirms That Plainclothes DC Metro Police Incited Capitol Rioters

The allegations that there were plain-clothed Washington D.C. Metro Police at the Capitol building during the January 6th riots, with some being recorded inciting the crowd, has been confirmed by the MPD, according to Congressional Committee Chairman Barry Loudermilk (R-GA).

Congressman Loudermilk, who chairs the House Administration Subcommittee on Oversight, told Just The News in a comprehensive interview Wednesday that MPD body cam footage leaked to Rumble was authenticated and does indeed show officers at the riot.

The footage posted by Rumble user OverwatchJ6 contains violent images of the January 6th Capitol Riot and profane language. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.
 

 

Loudermilk posed the question to Just the News, during an appearance on 'No Noise', "Why is an officer encouraging people to climb the scaffolding and go into the Capitol? And secondly, why did the MPD Metropolitan Police support department decide to put undercover officers in the crowd? Was there intelligence that they had that was or was not passed on to the Capitol Police and what did the Capitol police do with that evidence, if they got it?"

In a May 16th letter to MPD Chief Robert J. Contee III, Loudermilk demanded all body camera and GoPro footage from the plainclothes and uniformed officers present at the Capitol that day.

He further requested,
  • "A list identifying all MPD officers on duty on January 6, 2021, who were engaged in activities concerning the restoration of civil order at or concerning the U.S. Capitol Complex, including their unit and any information on their assignment, and whether they were in uniform or plain clothes in their role as a law enforcement officer on January 6, 2021;
  •  Any and all officer and department after action reports and after incident reports concerning the attack on the Capitol on January 6, 2021;
  • Any and all recordings of radio communications transmissions from January 6, 2021, relating to the attack on the Capitol;
  • Any and all MPD electronic surveillance unit video recordings from January 6, 2021, relating to the attack on the Capitol;
  • Any and all intelligence received, gathered, or created from December 20, 2020, to January 6, 2021, related to threats to the Capitol, and all internal and external communications relating to this intelligence."

Just The News reported that in a brief filed by the U.S. Attorney's office in Washington, D.C., prosecutors called for the department to turn over several pieces of specific footage.

They particularly demanded, "GoPro video recorded by an MPD Police Officer who was stationed at the Capitol in an evidence-gathering capacity, captures the officer shouting words to the effect of 'Go! Go! Go!' (MPD-005-000035 at time stamp 2:37), 'Go! Go! Go!' (MPD-005-000035 at time stamp 7:23), and 'Keeping going! Keep going!' (MPD-005-000035 at time stamp 8:16) apparently to the individuals in front of him on the balustrade of the U.S. Capitol's northwest staircase around 2:15 p.m." 

They also requested other possible examples of incitement such as "two other plain clothes officers with him [who] appear to join the crowd around them in various chants, to include 'drain the swamp,' 'U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!', and 'Whose house? Our house!'" 

Loudermilk expressed that he was also deeply concerned by footage depicting a secured door on the Upper West Terrace being left unlocked and open for a long period allowing 309 people to enter. 

"This is something that the Jan. 6 select committee chose not to look at: a security breach," he observed. "And that's something we started looking at and it raised a lot of questions with us."

The differences between the actual investigations into January 6th versus the political theater of the faux January 6th Committee under former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), couldn't be rendered more clearly than by these developments.
