Man arrested for having a gun at #JusticeForJan6 rally was a federal law enforcement agent

As Twitchy reported Saturday, Capitol Police in full riot gear at the sparsely attended #JusticeForJ6 rally were caught on video detaining a man who appeared to have produced a badge. Was the Capitol Police’s big gun bust at the rally a fed? The Associated Press confirms that yes, he is, and he won’t be charged.

BIG UPDATE: The individual arrested at Saturday’s rally at the Capitol was a federal agent, and he will not be prosecuted.

U.S. attorney says they’re “‘not moving forward with charges’ but did not provide additional information about the decision.”https://t.co/tHrAtyNtE9

The Associated Press reports:

A federal law enforcement officer was arrested carrying a gun at Saturday’s rally at the U.S. Capitol billed to support the suspects charged in January’s insurrection but will not be prosecuted.

The 27-year-old New Jersey man is an officer with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. He was arrested by Capitol Police for illegally possessing a gun on the grounds of the Capitol after people in the crowd reported seeing him with a handgun and notified nearby officers.

So the AP is calling January 6 an insurrection as well.

🤣

The FBI is the leader/creator of the “far-right domestic extremists” used to justify greater surveillance powers, federal law enforcement budgets, and scary cable news and Congressional narratives. Remember its “kidnap Gov Whitmer plot.” If you need a villain, FBI creates it: https://t.co/NqUpw4Ti7G

Was there anyone at that big scary MAGA rally who wasn’t a federal agent or a journalist? Like maybe 11 people?

At least CNN and MSNBC got a few dozen fear-inducing segments out of it and DHS got to issue an official advisory warning.

Can you imagine the ribbing the Capitol Police newbs will endure for not recognizing an undercover Fed? Wonder if their remedial training will include time on Twitter? pic.twitter.com/xx5kZGLH5M
