Leaked documents originating from the right wing Oath Keepers paramilitary group indicate that over 300 members are “current or former” employees of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), according to a report by Business Insider.
An investigation by the Project on Government Oversight in coordination with Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project purportedly uncovered the revelation that at least 306 members of the Oath Keepers were employed within various “DHS components such as the Border Patrol, Coast Guard, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Secret Service.”
The news comes amid suspicions that federal law enforcement had infiltrated and inflamed the massive election integrity protest that took place on the day of the January 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C.
“Most of the self-described DHS employees asserted that they were retired, but at least one claimed to be an activity-duty Secret Service agent; another said they were a supervisor with Border Patrol, according to the documents reviewed by POGO,” Business Insider reported.

Potentially undercover federal assets have been suspected of embedding themselves within the protesting crowds and encouraging, animating, or outright participating in violence that day.
Originally spearheaded by Revolver News’ Darren Beattie, in depth reporting on individuals such as Ray Epps reportedly revealed a “massive web of unindicted operators at the heart of January 6,” who may have been acting under the direction of federal law enforcement.

Critical evidence which could dispel or verify these claims seems to continuously be swept under the rug at the behest of top Democrat leadership. Valiant News reported yesterday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Democrat-majority Congress is fighting to keep 14,000 hours of January 6 security footage hidden from public view by claiming “sovereign immunity” in federal court.
In addition to potentially providing the American people with more evidence of the federal government’s alleged foreknowledge of and involvement in the Capitol riot, civil rights proponents have theorized that the 14,000 hours of secret January 6 security footage may contain evidence that could exonerate nonviolent January 6 offenders, who have been indefinitely detained over nonviolent alleged crimes and reportedly face inhumane treatment behind bars.
