NYTimes: Oath Keepers’ No. 2 During J6 Protest Was FBI Mole

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) The Oath Keepers’ second in command during the J6 protest was an FBI informant, who was reporting the group’s activities in the months leading up to the rally, the New York Times reported.

The informant was named Greg McWhirter, 40, and he served as the Oath Keepers’ vice president for some time.

McWhirter “was embedded for months in the inner circle of Stewart Rhodes, the leader of the Oath Keepers militia, is likely to testify as a defense witness at the seditious conspiracy trial of Mr. Rhodes in connection with the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021,” according to the Times. McWhirter was also a longtime sheriff’s deputy in Montana.

According to the report, he is not the only Oath Keeper who acted as a federal informant. Another was named Abdullah Rasheed, who said that he became increasingly alarmed by the ideas and aims of the organization.

“The more I listened to the call,” Mr. Rasheed testified, “it sounded like we were going to war against the United States government.”

But, the Times continued, “officials at the F.B.I. did not respond to Mr. Rasheed’s initial attempts to contact them and only reached out to him after Jan. 6.”

Such news calls into question why the FBI, despite having multiple informants before the J6 rally, did not act until Ray Epps and other federal agents told rally-goers to enter into the Capitol building.

Many on the Right pointed out that the NYT seems to have waited until the most opportune time to report on what otherwise would be a groundbreaking story.

The new revelations have prompted many to ask how the charges of so-called seditious conspiracy could be taken seriously if government agents were working with informants, knew of the alleged plot from its earliest days and helped facilitate and activate the Capitol breach.
