(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) A mere three days after the United States Capitol was breached during the Jan. 6 rally, a top intelligence analyst for the Capitol Police sent out an email blasting members of Congress for failing to heed warnings that certain individuals planned to storm the building, Just the News reported.
Eric Hoar, the Intelligence Analyst who sent the memo, suggested that the information that he provided and that the government knew about weeks in advance may not have been taken seriously.
“We analysts have been reporting for weeks that Patriot groups are commenting on social media their intentions to storm the U.S. Capitol with overwhelming numbers,” Eric Hoar wrote in the Jan. 9, 2021 email.
“I don’t know what was occurring behind the scenes, but I hope that information was briefed with the veracity it deserved, and not just a one-time Event Assessment.”
Hoar also insinuated that the lack of response may have been due to the establishment’s desire to frame that day as a right-wing attack on democracy, which the Left lays an ideological claim to.
“The notion that valid intelligence is trumped by optics or political decisions is unacceptable and puts lives in danger,” he said. “This is a concept I’ve understood for a long time, and I know you are aware of this as well, and I hope its meaning is now OBVIOUS to ALL Officials, Commanders, and Stakeholders.”
His note about “optics” was an allusion to Democrats in the House, led by Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi, rejecting an offer from Trump’s Pentagon to provide additional National Guard support at the event.
Such details suggest that Pelosi knew about government plants like Ray Epps who would go on direct the crowd into the Capitol, providing numerous photo opportunities.
Since his response to the J6 rally did not align with the establishment’s prescribed views, Hoar was pushed out of his role with the Capitol Police, though he managed to land a new job with the Department of Homeland Security.
