As the nation begins to get a non-partisan look at the events of January 6th, 2021, a much milder scene appears to be emerging…and it has a massive cloud of doubt beginning to hang over the official story.

First and foremost, the incredible and damning video showed the “QAnon Shaman” being escorted throughout the building by Capitol Police, with officers even going so far as to attempt to open doors for the fur-and-leather-clad alleged “agitator.”

Now, in stunning new information gleaned from one of the January 6th cases, an FBI informant embedded in the crowd revealed that he was allowed to break the law to maintain his position within the mob.

An FBI informant who joined the Proud Boys and helped breach the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, says there was an understanding that he could commit crimes in certain situations.

The informant, named in court as Aaron, said that he spoke with his handling agent before traveling to Washington.

“Did your conversation with the agent contemplate what might happen if you encountered some people engaging in bad activity?” Aaron was asked.

“Yes. If there’s an emergency situation, and to protect myself from physical harm or worse, I have to do something minor, like if I’m surrounded by Antifa and I have to spray paint on a wall or break a window to try and get them to leave me alone, then that could be explained and would be much better than me being severely hurt,” Aaron testified on March 29, according to transcripts reviewed by The Epoch Times.

There was no doubt about the situation, either.

“So when you say that that could be explained, what is your understanding of what that meant?” Aaron was asked.

“That I wouldn’t get in trouble if I did something minor like that if it was in the act of self-preservation,” he responded.

Critics of the handling of January 6th, 2021, have long suggested that undercover federal agents were part and parcel of the actions that escalated the crowd to commit violence. This latest admission is indeed throwing fuel on that conspiratorial fire.
