A former Drug Enforcement Agency official faces up to 15 years in prison over the January 6 protest at the US Capitol, despite his insistence that he never entered the building.

Mark Ibrahim, an Army veteran who was fired from the DEA over his participation in the events of January 6, spoke out in Tuesday’s episode of Fox News host Tucker Carlson’s series.

Ibrahim made the explosive claim that he was invited to attend Donald Trump’s ‘Stop The Steal’ rally by an FBI informant he knew from his military service, who subsequently urged him to join the mob breaking into the Capitol, which he refused.

“They labeled me a domestic terrorist, I just want to see peace and unity,” Ibrahim told Carlson.

“Because I’ve seen it in foreign countries, between Sunni and Shia, open violence in the streets. It’s a sad and scary thing,” he continued, referring to opposing Muslim factions.

“I’m afraid that if this division and dehumanizing continues, that’s where America is headed, and I pray that never happens,” Ibrahim said.
