We’ve seen a lot of problems over the last few years with the FBI.
Former director James Comey turned it into a political mess that targeted President Donald Trump, even using false information weaponized and paid for by the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s team. You even had people lying and changing emails to target a Trump adviser Carter Page. Christopher Wray didn’t solve the problems when he came in.
Now the FBI seems to be going all out to go after people who were in the Capitol on Jan. 6.
As we reported last night, federal authorities even seem to be getting the help of Bank of America to get the private information of thousands, if not millions of people, who had nothing to do with it and were not allegedly involved in any way. Now understand the majority of the alleged charges are basically illegal entry which is a misdemeanor and which might be challenging to proceed with since while some broke in, so many were let into the building by the Capitol Police. They’ve even reportedly considered RICO charges against the Capitol folks.
By comparison, in places like Portland that have had BLM/Antifa riots and continuing attacks for months. the same people are involved over and over again, yet the FBI can’t seem to make any headway with the organized leaders. It’s a perfect RICO situation but we don’t hear any moves that they even have gone in that directions.
Obviously there are still political issues at the FBI. But there appear to be basic competency issues as well, as the picture the FBI used in a complaint against one of the people involved in the action at the Capitol.
I’ve studied extremism for 15 years, I’ve reviewed mostly every court record for decades. I can honestly say very little surprises me. That said, I have absolutely no idea what to say about the Internet image the FBI used in a criminal complaint of the picture hanging on the wall pic.twitter.com/nznszFmif7

Did you see it?
They actually included a photoshopped picture from 4Chan in the complaint, with a naked guy in the picture in the back rather than the picture which is normally there. The naked guy is a common 4Chan meme. 4Chan has to be loving that it made it into an official complaint. But that’s just hilarious.
What a way to hurt the accuracy of your own complaint when you do things like that! Now apparently they included it because the coworker identified the defendant from that picture. But the picture was photoshopped. So not a good look all the way around.
