Business Insider: “The defeated president gives a speech to a group of supporters where he tells them he was robbed of the election, denounces his own administration’s members and party as traitors, and tells his supporters to storm the building where the voting is being held,” the NATO intelligence official said.

“The supporters, many dressed in military attire and waving revolutionary-style flags, then storm the building where the federal law-enforcement agencies controlled by the current president do not establish a security cordon, and the protesters quickly overwhelm the last line of police.

“The president then makes a public statement to the supporters attacking the Capitol that he loves them but doesn’t really tell them to stop,” the official said. “Today I am briefing my government that we believe with a reasonable level of certainty that Donald Trump attempted a coup that failed when the system did not buckle.

  • Multiple European security officials told Insider that President Donald Trump appeared to have tacit support among US federal agencies responsible for securing the Capitol complex in Wednesday’s coup attempt.
  • Insider is reporting this information because it illustrates the serious repercussions of Wednesday’s events: Even if they are mistaken, some among America’s international military allies are now willing to give credence to the idea that Trump deliberately tried to violently overturn an election and had help from some federal law-enforcement agents.
  • “We train alongside the US federal law enforcement to handle these very matters, and it’s obvious that large parts of any successful plan were just ignored,” one source told us.

The supporters of President Donald Trump whostormed the Capitol on Wednesday to stop the ratification of President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory were attempting a violent coup that multiple European security officials said appeared to have at least tacit support from aspects of the US federal agencies responsible for securing the Capitol complex.

Insider spoke with three officials on Thursday morning: a French police official responsible for public security in a key section of central Paris, and two intelligence officials from NATO countries who directly work in counterterrorism and counterintelligence operations involving the US, terrorism, and Russia.

They said the circumstantial evidence available pointed to what would be openly called a coup attempt in any other nation. None were willing to speak on the record because of the dire nature of the subject.  read more…

  1. Failed coup was my first reaction. https://www.veteranstoday.com/2021/01/06/putsch/ Most likely a deliberately failed coup, like the way some interpret the coup attempt against Erdogan a few years ago. Only this one was much more obviously botched from the get-go. Trump, of course, wouldn’t have wanted it to fail. But he is an idiot who couldn’t organize anything more complicated than a golf outing.

  2. One group had a legitimate cause as their families were being gunned down or stomped in the street for taillights, and the other was following a demagogue with royal aspirations and the cause they thought they had was all a lie. Do you know which is which ?

  3. Just my thought, but Johnson being quick to denounce as the twin of Trump and loyal subject to a Monarchy, may well have benefited from an asset with Russian ties, making it easy to shed blame. Brexit and Trump appear to have been tied from the beginning, and the product is undeniable. They even wrapped up at the same time. How interesting.
    Some complete revetting of our entire security apparatus is in order, and should keep this in mind.

  4. So do you think Israel is involved? It is where he gets his orders but somehow I don’t see it. Maybe Israel dumped Trump and this was his temper tantrum.

    I dont think so. It was too ridiculous. They have something else planned and this was just a prelude.

    OR it somehow has to do with SolarWinds buying them time.
