The Cambridge Dictionary defines “insurrection” as: “an organized attempt by a group of people to defeat their government and take control of their country, usually by violence”
By that definition, there was no “insurrection” at the United States Capitol on Jan. 6, according to the FBI.
Reuters, which spoke with four current and former law enforcement officials, reported that investigators for the FBI noted that those involved in the far-right groups such as the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers were intent on entering the Capitol.
However, the officials who spoke with Reuters said that no coordinated plans appeared to be established regarding what they would do once they broke in.
Reuters reports :
The FBI has found scant evidence that the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result, according to four current and former law enforcement officials.
“Ninety to ninety-five percent of these are one-off cases,” said a former senior law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. “Then you have five percent, maybe, of these militia groups that were more closely organized. But there was no grand scheme with Roger Stone and Alex Jones and all of these people to storm the Capitol and take hostages.”
While some “cells of protesters,” including members of the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys, did plan to “break into the Capitol,” the FBI found “no evidence that the groups had serious plans about what to do if they made it inside.”
So what happened at U.S. Capitol on January 6 was not a riot, just like so many other protests. Trying to politicize it and turn it into something it wasn’t is the attempt of Democrats?
