On Sunday, January 3, the heads of a half-dozen elite government special operations teams met in Quantico, Virginia, to go over potential threats, contingencies, and plans for the upcoming Joint Session of Congress. The meeting, and the subsequent deployment of these shadowy commandos on January 6, has never before been revealed.

Right after the New Year, Jeffrey A. Rosen, the acting Attorney General on January 6, approved implementation of long-standing contingency plans dealing with the most extreme possibilities: an attack on President Donald Trump or Vice President Mike Pence, a terrorist attack involving a weapon of mass destruction, and a declaration of measures to implement continuity of government, requiring protection and movement of presidential successors.

Rosen made a unilateral decision to take the preparatory steps to deploy Justice Department and so-called "national" forces. There was no formal request from the U.S. Capitol Police, the Secret Service, or the Metropolitan Police Department—in fact, no external request from any agency. The leadership in Justice and the FBI anticipated the worst and decided to act independently, the special operations forces lurking behind the scenes.

"I believe that DOJ [Department of Justice] reasonably prepared for contingencies ahead of January 6, understanding that there was considerable uncertainty as to how many people would arrive, who those people would be, and precisely what purposes they would pursue," Rosen later told Congress. He stressed that his department "no frontline role with respect to crowd control," that they were focused on "high-risk" operations.

The contingency units meeting on January 3 included the FBI's Hostage Rescue Team, the FBI's national "Render Safe" team, an FBI SWAT team from the Baltimore Field Office, Special Response Teams from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and the U.S. Marshals Service Special Operations Group.

  • There were 5 or 6 whom I could see from the area where Tr spoke. They were a good distance away and up on a roof, so highly visible. If there were more at the Capital I did not see them. 

  • "Shoot to kill authorization?"  Identify these commandos.  Name, rank and serial numbers; exactly who are they and, then we can ask, who who authroized them? 

  • Well, having lived in the D.C. metro and been there MANY times, for rally's and protests etc., I can say with certainty that there are ALWAYS teams armed to the teeth standing atop the Capitol building, the White House, and anywhere else in that immediate vicinity.  Ive seen them & waved to them, watched them on duty.  They even swarmed my local Home Depot & cut off traffic when Obama went there for a photo op!   However, were there any extra teams on the 6th?  Or were there less than normal details assigned for protection that day?  I would guess the latter, knowing Pelosi had her fingers all over the January 6th RALLY; she had to continue with her villification and destruction of Trump somehow..... and at any cost.  She is evil.

  • Not since the 1990's Clinton/Reno organized attacks on Our Bill of Rights ending with the massacres in Texas and Idaho have such abuses so blatantly been used against the American Citizenry and "Their Nation."

    • Bill, I am sure nutty nan is involved in this!!!!!!!!!


  • Why am I not surprised!!!  I often wonder if the America People can handle the truth about the depth of secrecy in the federal Gov.....

    • (imho) not so much the "depth of secrecy" as what they are protecting!

    • Yes, and God only knows what that may be...  They are all like cats in a sand box trying to cover up the stench before it seeps out of the beltway......
