MIRANDA DEVINE (CONTRIBUTOR): Also, considering how, you know, all the resources of the FBI went into geo-locating mobile phones, cell phones that were there at the Capitol on January 6 and rounding up people, innocent or not innocent, all around the country who happened to be in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021, to see the president speak, they've been really diligent and very good at rounding up those suspects for nonviolent offenses. And yet, this pipe bomber, which supposedly was a weapon of mass destruction, has eluded them.

So, there is something fishy about it. And whether it was a false flag operation or whatever it was, I think the Republicans are owed even a background briefing. It doesn't have to be, you know, let out to the public. But we need to know whether this is some sort of fishy shenanigans because we can't trust the FBI anymore. 


I think you have to think back, what would be the motive for someone to plant fake bombs there at the RNC and DNC headquarters that were going to be picked up the next day, January 6, just before Donald Trump was going to speak and before, you know, the riot happened? What would be the motive? Well, it would be to divert police resources from the Capitol to this area several blocks away. And who would have the motive to do that? Well, I guess the people who attacked the Capitol would. But also, maybe, somebody else would, who wanted to create a situation where the Capitol riot happened and where the Capitol police were overrun.
