Lawyer Sidney Powell said that the FBI likely had a “substantial or leading role in creating” the event at the Capitol on January 6.

Sidney Powell expressed support for the claim of FBI involvement in the Capitol protests during a recent interview with commentator Brannon Howse, who asked Powell whether she agreed with “some members of Congress”.

“I think they were [involved],” Powell said in a Lindell TV clip shared to Twitter by PatriotTakes on Friday. “It would be very surprising, given what you’ve disclosed on your show with your prior whistleblower, and their mode of operations lately in the last decade, if they didn’t have a substantial—if not leading—role in creating the entire debacle.”

Fox News host Tucker Carlson also said on his popular opinion show Tucker Carlson Tonight that “FBI operatives were organizing the attack on the Capitol on January 6.”

Republican members of Congress have backed the claim in recent weeks.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) expressed support for the theory on Twitter by sharing a clip from Carlson’s show that featured an interview with Revolver News editor Darren Beattie.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) retweeted Gaetz while saying that the “deep state” was “deeply involved in Jan 6th.” During a recent joint appearance with Gaetz on Steve Bannon’s War Room: Pandemic podcast, Greene said that FBI involvement in the riot “possibly” explained “what happened.”
