The ongoing investigation into the pipe bombs found at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters on January 6, 2021, has raised critical questions about the U.S. government’s transparency and potential concealment of crucial information. Blaze News investigative journalist Steve Baker has brought new insights into this case, challenging the previously accepted narrative that a “passerby” discovered the alleged explosive device. Instead, Baker’s investigation points to a United States Capitol Police plainclothes officer as the person who found the device.
This revelation, confirmed by multiple congressional staffers, is significant due to the FBI’s lack of response to inquiries about the individual’s identity. Video evidence shows the individual, dressed in dark clothing and with a backpack, approaching a D.C. Metropolitan Police vehicle and a black Secret Service SUV parked near the DNC to report the suspected pipe bomb. Surprisingly, the alleged explosive was merely 15 to 20 feet away from these vehicles.
The presence of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris at the DNC building, approximately 90 minutes before the discovery of the pipe bomb, adds to the mystery surrounding the event. Why she was at the DNC instead of the Capitol for the 2020 Electoral College vote certification is yet unknown. Moreover, the Biden administration has not utilized this incident to emphasize their narrative of the day’s events, even though the FBI described the pipe bomb as a “viable” device capable of causing serious harm.
Key questions that remain unanswered include:
1. Why did law enforcement officers not react immediately to the report of a bomb nearby?
2. How did the Secret Service fail to detect the pipe bomb before Harris’ arrival at the DNC?
3. Why were CCTV cameras in the Capitol Police Command Center redirected away from the bomb investigation?
4. Was the DNC pipe bomb genuinely “viable,” considering contradictory video evidence?
Additional insights from journalists Michael Shellenberger, Alex Gutentag, and Kyle Seraphin, a former FBI agent, suggest discrepancies in the FBI’s handling of the case. The potential corruption of phone data that could identify the suspect and questions about the bomb’s actual presence at the DNC on the night of January 5th raise further doubts about the official narrative.
This case continues to unfold, with ongoing investigations and unanswered questions pointing to a possible cover-up or mishandling at the highest levels of government. The lack of transparency and response from the U.S. Capitol Police, D.C. Metro Police, Secret Service, and the FBI only adds to the growing skepticism about the true nature of the events surrounding the January 6 pipe bombs.
