Defendant Seeks to Block Jury from Hearing About Undercover Agents in January 6 Capitol Case

Special Counsel Jack Smith is working to thwart President Trump’s attempt to shift blame onto provocateurs and undercover agents for the Capitol riot on January 6. In his 20-page filing, Smith urged the court to prevent the defendant from injecting irrelevant political attacks and propaganda into the jury trial. Smith emphasized that such efforts have no place in the courtroom and could prejudice the jury.

The trial date for Trump’s case is set for March 4, 2024, with allegations of election interference. However, pretrial proceedings have been put on hold due to Trump’s immunity argument in the appellate court. Oral arguments for the immunity claims will commence in the DC Circuit Court of Appeals on January 9.

Jack Smith is pushing to prevent the jury from hearing any evidence related to the presence of undercover agents in the January 6 case. Smith argues that such evidence holds no value in the case.

On the other hand, Trump’s attorneys have filed a motion for discovery in Jack Smith’s case, seeking documents regarding informants and undercover agents linked to the January 6 incident. The defense is demanding all documents regarding individuals acting on behalf of the Department of Justice or any law enforcement agency present at or near the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.

The Gateway Pundit has reported several instances of suspected federal agents infiltrating the January 6 crowd. Michael Waller, a senior analyst for strategy at the Center for Security Policy, witnessed plainclothes militants, agents-provocateurs, fake Trump protesters, and a disciplined, uniformed column of attackers at the Capitol on January 6. Additionally, Antifa terrorists were also found to have infiltrated the protest.

While Trump supporters have been blamed for the violence and chaos that erupted on January 6, a former FBI agent confirmed that at least one “busload” of Antifa thugs infiltrated peaceful Trump demonstrators during the rally.

Tucker Carlson, a prominent media figure, disclosed that he interviewed the Chief of Police who was in charge of security at the Capitol on January 6. The Chief of Police, Steven Sund, reportedly stated that the crowd on January 6 was filled with federal agents. Tucker Carlson further revealed that his interview with the Chief of Police was never aired on FOX News and claimed that the core claims about January 6 were lies.

In sum, the legal battle between President Trump and Special Counsel Jack Smith is intensifying as both sides seek to control the narrative surrounding the January 6 Capitol riot. The issue of undercover agents and provocateurs is becoming a focal point of contention, and as the case progresses, further revelations may come to light about the events of that day.
