Speaking on her Fox Business show this Tuesday morning, host Maria Bartiromo took an opportunity to float a baseless conspiracy theory that claims left-wing activists “infiltrated” groups who gathered at the U.S. Capitol on Jan 6.
Bartiromo cited a recent news story about a possible plot by QAnon adherents to pose as National Guard troops in order to infiltrate Joe Biden’s upcoming inauguration. According to Bartiromo, the news is comparable to rumors that claim there were left-wing groups participating the riots at the Capitol who were disguised as Trump supporters.
“Well, security in the nation’s capital is at an unprecedented level this morning ahead of the inauguration tomorrow,” she said. “A new report says that some far-right protesters have discussed posing as members of the National Guard to infiltrate the inauguration — the way Democrats infiltrated two weeks ago and put on MAGA clothing.”
Just days after the riots at the Capitol, the FBI said there was no evidence that individuals associated with “antifa” or left-wing groups disguised themselves as Trump supporters in order to stoke violence.
