A Capitol Police J6 Whistleblower Sounds Off

Pelosi’s one-sided history of the January 6 riot is being vigorously fact-checked by a group of Capitol Police intelligence whistleblowers.

Gotta love those whistleblowers — unless, of course, you’re a Trump-hating House Democrat trying to foist upon the American people a one-sided history of the January 6 Capitol riot. In that case, you’re inclined to hate whistleblowers and to keep them as far away from your rigged J6 “investigation” as possible.

“We analysts have been reporting for weeks that Patriot groups are commenting on social media their intentions to storm the U.S. Capitol with overwhelming numbers.” So said Eric Hoar, a senior Capitol Police intelligence official, in a scathing memo to his Capitol Police superiors just three days after the January 6 riot.

Whoa. You mean to tell us that Capitol Police leadership was warned well in advance by one of its top intelligence officials that a riot was coming to the Capitol on January 6? You mean to say Donald Trump didn’t incite an insurrection at the spur of the moment? Yep, that’s precisely what John Solomon, editor in chief of Just the News, is reporting.

Imagine that. And did the Capitol Police share this information with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who’s responsible for Capitol security? Because we do know that the Capitol Police were woefully short-staffed at the time of the riot. And we do know that President Trump had previously approved the deployment of 10,000 National Guardsmen to protect the Capitol on that awful day.

Too bad Pelosi and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser both declined Trump’s offer for that overwhelming National Guard presence. Because such a show of force might’ve ended the riot before it began. And too bad Pelosi’s dog and pony show trial made no mention of Eric Hoar’s advanced warnings — although Pelosi and Liz Cheney and their fellow Democrats went to great lengths to tell us minute by minute what Trump was and wasn’t doing that day.

“I have been purposely quiet for several days in order to calm myself,” Hoar’s memo continues, “but know that I am filled with anger and frustration. Watching videos of Officers and friends that I served next to when I was in uniform being bullied. Watching posts that I’ve held being overrun, still makes me nauseous.”

As Solomon reports, there’s plenty more where this came from:

Hoar’s assessment is directly backed up by hundreds of pages of internal Capitol Police documents obtained by Just the News showing Hoar and other colleagues in the intelligence division receiving detailed warnings from the FBI, Homeland Security Department, the U.S. Marshals Service and D.C. Metropolitan Police that right-wing extremists were plotting to storm the Capitol and attack lawmakers.

At the time of the riot, Hoar worked for the Capitol Police’s Intelligence and Inter-Agency Coordination Division. And before that, before a serious auto accident put him in a wheelchair, Hoar worked as a Capitol Cop. (Interestingly, though, when one searches the three-word string “Eric Hoar whistleblower” on Google’s news aggregator, not a single result is delivered. But search that exact same three-word string on, say, DuckDuckGo, and you get plenty of results. If we didn’t know better, we’d swear Google tweaks its news-gathering algorithm to memory-hole the news it deems inconvenient.)

And Eric Hoar’s advance warnings are certainly inconvenient to the prevailing Leftmedia narrative about the January 6 riot. All that might change, though, on January 3, 2023, when the 118th Congress is sworn in and a bunch of curious Republican committee chairmen begin snatching away the gavels from their incurious Democrat colleagues.

Indeed, as Solomon reports: “Some of the intelligence was repeatedly sent in an effort to get leaders’ attention over the Christmas holidays. ‘I apologize if this is a double tap with the email,’ one of Hoar’s colleagues, Matthew Hurtig, wrote in an email dated Dec. 31, 2020, where he re-forwarded information from the FBI about right-wing extremist threats on social media to ‘storm’ the U.S. Capitol and ‘hang’ politicians.”

And yet, Solomon added, “the department’s Jan. 5, 2021, final Civil Disturbance Units plan for crowd and riot control contained this inexplicable language about threat assessment: ‘At this time there are no specific known threats related to the Joint Session of Congress — Electoral College Vote Certification.’”

“No specific known threats,” eh?

Either no one was paying attention to the repeated warnings of Eric Hoar and his Capitol Police intel colleagues, or no one wanted to pay attention to them.
