Representative Clay Higgins of Louisiana said he has been investigating the protests that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. As a result of his investigation, he believes the FBI had 200 undercover assets both inside and outside the building on that day. 

“We believe that there were easily 200 FBI undercover assets operating in the crowd, outside the Capitol, embedded into groups that entered the Capitol or provoked entry of the Capitol,” he said in an interview. “Given the scope of the operation and the number of doors where entry was allowed or even encouraged—and the number of people that were actually outside the Capitol and that entered—we believe 200 [is a] conservative number.” 

The congressman said, based on evidence he has reviewed, assets of the FBI were working with the local Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department and the Capitol Police. He believes that, among other things, FBI operatives were helping members of the public navigate their way around the building. 

“There’s no way they can come in some random door that gets opened and then get their way directly to Statuary [Hall] or the House chamber or the Senate chamber. It’s just not possible,” Representative Higgins explained. “The FBI assets that were dressed as Trump supporters that were inside the Capitol were there, I believe, and evidence indicates that they were there to specifically wave in the Trump supporters that had gathered outside the Capitol.” 

“I’m following the evidence, and to my horror, it implicates our FBI at the highest level,” he said. “A conspiracy within our government at the highest level to set the stage for a compromised election cycle in 2020. And then the actions that took place on J4, 5, and 6, and then the criminal investigation, arrest, and prosecution of Americans that they were able to entrap.”
