RussiaGate 2.0? FBI Says Russia And China Stoked And Exploited Capitol Storming

Click to see full-size image

Following the January 6th storming of the Capitol building in Washington, DC, the FBI have initiated an investigation to see if whether a foreign government played any part of what transpired.

This was reported by NBC, citing two unnamed FBI officials – one current, one former.

The FBI 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 unnamed sources said.

On December 8, 2020, a donor sent 28.15 BTC — worth approximately $522,000 at the time of transfer — to 22 separate addresses in a single transaction. Many of those addresses belong to far-right activists and internet personalities.

Nick Fuentes received 13.5 BTC — worth approximately $250,000 at the time of the transfer — making him by far the biggest beneficiary of the donation. However, several others received significant funds as well, including anti-immigration organization VDARE, alt-right streamer Ethan Ralph, and several addresses whose owners are as yet unidentified.

There is no evidence that Fuentes even entered Capitol, and he denies doing so. He was present in the rally, and when the riot began.

One group of Fuentes’ supporters, which calls itself the Groyper Army, was filmed running through the Capitol carrying a large blue flag with the America First logo.

“We’re looking at and treating this just like a significant international counterterrorism or counterintelligence operation,” Michael Sherwin, the U.S. attorney in D.C., said at a news briefing last week.

“We’re looking at everything: Money, travel records, looking at disposition, movement, communication records.”

Regardless, Russia, China and also Iran were blamed for having taken hold of the presented opportunity.

“Russian, Iranian, and Chinese influence actors have seized the opportunity to amplify narratives in furtherance of their policy interest amid the presidential transition,” the FBI said in a joint statement with the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies.

Russian state and proxy media outlets “have amplified themes related to the violent and chaotic nature of the Capitol Hill incident, impeachment of President Trump, and social media censorship,” the unclassified intelligence report said. “In at least one instance, a Russian proxy claimed that ANTIFA members disguised themselves as supporters of President Trump, and were responsible for storming the Capitol building.”

Chinese media, meanwhile, “have seized the story to denigrate U.S. democratic governance, casting the United States as broadly in decline — and to justify China’s crackdown on protestors in Hong Kong.”

This comes on the back of “mounting evidence” that’s never been presented that Russia and other foreign adversaries have sought to secretly support political extremists on the far right and far left.

Law enforcement officials and terrorism experts say there has long been “a mutual affection between Western white supremacists and the Russian government,” a research publication by two researchers said back in February.

US Senators were so concerned enough about the issue that they inserted a requirement in the 2021 defense bill that the Pentagon “report to Congress on the extent of Russian support for ‘racially and ethnically motivated violent extremist groups and networks in Europe and the United States’ — and what can be done to counter it.”

Regardless of what comes out, Russia and China are likely to be blamed for what transpired, since it would be the east, if more sanctions and tensions are expected against them. This is not even a slightly surprising claim.

Probably best SWIFT gets superseded.

FlorianGeyer

Or just ban the US from Swift :)

Clyde S Dale, BS, MS, PhD

What is SWIFT?

Aquilegia

Of course, if there’s open season in the parliament, there’s advance warning such could occur, and intelligence assets are in place, WHO wouldn’t want to obtain laptops with Hillary’s joga session pictures or Hunter’s child pornography.

Zero-value FBI intelligence again.

French national transfers money to USA far right – Russia and China are to blame.comment image

Clyde S Dale, BS, MS, PhD

Trump supporters don’t constitute the “far right.” Trump Republicans are leftist, they just represent the other side of the same coin. While Republicans represent a *slightly* better faction of the Deep State, at the end of the day…both parties are a part of the same swamp.

By the way, aren’t you that same poster who used to live in Russia? If so, then how’d you fare with the Chechens? I believe their population is quite significant in metro Moscow.

Harry Smith

Yep. I am Russian. I am not in Moscow, but in a small “county” in the North West. We have Chechens but there are idiots are only 2 of them which live in the neighboring county and sometimes they come to our to drink. In most cases they are quite but when they drink too much they starts usually to show how tough they are. But then police get them and next day they compensate everything they done. And to be honest an year before they were too stupid to start the fight with the local guy. It is inter ethnic conflict and those conflicts are in FSB jurisdiction. As I heard they had very hard talks in our county FSB and I heard nothing about those Chechens since that time. They just returned to the county they living and do not came to our county anymore.

Clyde Dale

Wow, Chechens in your area actually choose to imbibe? So much for being Muslim.

Harry Smith

Most of them are not really Muslims. Just following the tradition. Nobody here is surprised if a “Muslim” from North Caucasus drinks vodka or wine.

Clyde Dale

There aren’t very many Chechens here in the U.S. In fact, the only ones given asylum are so-called “gay” ones or political exiles. I believe Canada has more, but even over there the Chechen population is very small and practically invisible. Pertaining to other North Caucasus groups like Avars, Kumyks, and Ossetians, I’m not sure they even exist here in the U.S.

The only time the Chechen “community” received mainstream (American) media attention was in 2013, shortly after the Boston marathon bombings. However, due to the limited number of Americans familiar with the North Caucasus, most simply referred to them as “lone wolf Russian Muslims.”

I myself didn’t really pay them much mind until I watched the German T.V. series, 4 blocks. It’s about a Lebanese criminal clan in the Neukolln district of Berlin, Germany. The second season involved a dispute between the Lebanese Arabs and members of the recently arrived Chechen mafia.

I did some more research, and it turned out that the Chechens had been arriving to Germany in large numbers since the late aughts. This is even more true in France and Austria. They’re stereotyped as being quiet, but violent, and very religious. They often get into disputes with Afghans and Arabs, but manage to get along well with Turks.

Harry Smith

Look, every inter ethnic conflict is in FSB jurisdiction. Only idiots with Russian citizenship will start an inter ethnic conflict. As for France

Russia Russia Russia, China China China, i’m so bored with U$A.

FlorianGeyer

The world is bored with the USA. Even the sycophantic Europeans realise the US is in terminal decline :)

Clyde S Dale, BS, MS, PhD

The F.B.I. and C.I.A. love using Russia and China as scapegoats. You would think that the American population would catch on to their tricks, but alas, they’ve been too dumbed down to do so.

Damien C

I’m glad ut was Russia and China … I thought for sure Hugo Chavez was going to get blamed in a seance held by Iran

Volker

Always the SAME Old LIES from the AmeriCunt criminal Deep-State + all their Off-Shoots, the fascist Regime, corrupt Polit Clown Establishment + Elites/Oligarchs, their ‘Almighty’ War & Terror Machinery, their combined Fake-News MSM or their Big-Tech Oligarch-Mafia Cartel….always the SAME Old LIES ACCUSATIONS CLAIMS BULLSHIT HORSESHIT…..LAME!!!

Harry Smith

There are only 3 countries which are capable to destroy this global civilization: China, Russia and USA. After Dems won presidential the balance between USA and China is established. And only Russian elites are slowing the Great Reset process. It’s not because Russian elites are so traditional but because old families do not accept Russian nouveau riches as equal part to share future pie. There is a very short window of opportunities for the successful Great Reset and it’s about 2-3 years. So global elites have to do something with Russian elites. But it is not necessary a confrontation. Maybe old families will accept Russian elites or will buy a part of it. I don’t know, but they must hurry.

JIMI JAMES

Usefull as the ashtray on the bull.

Ivan Freely

FBI??? LOL No one believes in them.

Volker

Not much ‘Investigating‘ at All more like GASLIGHTING, Making Shit Up + LYING

Steve Standley

No one in the US should pay taxes. Everyone should arm themselves. Their government is a parasite upon them. Here, the FBI, a putative law enforcement agency, is being used once again as a mouthpiece for lies.

Assad no?

Claus Schwaab will of course be sipping champagne on his palatial mansion surrounded by his luxurious estate of endless rolling forests far from the unwashed masses …

A Roman villa site was further investigated a few years ago and another tunnel complex was found. It was wide enough for two horses and carts to pass. There were also living quarters for the slaves within the tunnels. The main tunnel we about 30km long if I remember correctly and it led to a town.

The Roman Uber rich could then enjoy their villa whilst the slaves toiled virtually unseen to serve them.

The large stately homes in the UK often had servants stairs and doorways to serve their masters and mistresses, and I would think the modern ‘stately homes being build by the UBER rich today would use the same privacy systems.

Arch Bungle

So it has been from the days our ancestors began going on two legs.

It is time for this artificial hierarchy to be destroyed forever.

FlorianGeyer

Yes, even in the Bronze age there is evidence that the ‘ chieftain’s’ of a community appeared to have a larger home and valuable belongings.

Such ways of life can never be totally destroyed BUT history is replete with hierarchy’s that have been destroyed. Sometimes multiple times.

We are all part of a global power struggle today. Such struggles are part of ‘being’ for all animal’s and even insects.

Arch Bungle

The FBI is essentially saying Russia and China have such sophisticated psychological warfare systems that they’re able to turn Americans against their own government on demand.

If that’s the case they might as well surrender right now …

Clyde S Dale, BS, MS, PhD

The C.I.A., U.S. military, and FBI know that the American population is dumb enough to fall for such diversions. It’s hard to blame them when the Americans are so apathetic and spiritually weak. Most of them haven’t even read their own Constitution! They are too dumb to discern the extent to which their own government has impinged upon their basic civil liberties. If you didn’t notice it after 9/11, you noticed in LAST year when the lockdowns began.

Even in areas with a heavy active military and/or veteran presence — think San Diego County (California) — you see Marines, sailors, soldiers, and even Seals walking around with MASKS on their face and looks of disapproval when someone decides to enjoy the day and breathe unrestricted.

Over the next decade, the American empire will fall. And I look forward to it. It’ll be the best birthday present I have ever wished for. As much as I hate to admit it, my fellow compatriots have become a cross between those Brave New World freaks and 1984 drones. If the U.S. isn’t broken up, then it must be destroyed and rebuilt from the ground up.

Arch Bungle

Ironically, dissolution of the American Empire will benefit the American people more than anything.

America has no need to seek conflict outside of it’s borders, it has all it needs within.

It is the Zionists and other cabals who seek world domination who will suffer, for when the State is reconstituted (hopefully in a more humane form) all their plans will be scattered to the winds.

cechas vodobenikov

the FBI is upset that foreign critics observe their tragedy of a democracy to be a comedy

tzatz

So … it’s clear there are NO honest Americans on this site … only haters of all things dear to the ‘land of the free and home of the brave’
