Ok, so this piece helps to clear a lot of this up. Was ANTIFA at the Capitol Hill protests posing as MAGA supporters? Well, the answer is “YES & NO”.
Law Enforcement Source About Antifa at Capitol Protest

We’ve reported on the facts and the false stories regarding the question of Antifa at the Capitol protest/riot and we also said if we had more information we’d report more.
As we previously reported, the ’horn guy’ who infamously made it into the Senate chamber and was featured in many pictures with horns on his head and paint on his face is an actor and a known Trump and Q supporter. There is a picture of him at a BLM protest, but he was there as a counter-protester holding a Q sign. The sign was cropped out of the picture that went viral on social media.
Then there was the story of the “two Philly Antifa guys” who were actually not Antifa guys. The pictures of the people were found on Philly Antifa’s website (yes, they have a website, sure do sound organized and not just an idea) but they were there because Antifa was identifying them as Neo-Nazi extremists. One of the men had a tattoo on his hand which has been falsely claimed to be a “hammer and sickle” tattoo; actually it’s a tattoo from the video game “Dishonored.”
There was a very identifiable BLM protester there whose common hashtags were BLM and Antifa. His name is John Sullivan from Utah and he was arrested at a violent BLM protest in July. He helped organize a protest where a motorist was shot by another BLM person. He also advocated for ripping the president from the White House. He was next to the doors, near Ashli Babbitt when she was shot.
So the new information we want to report is that the NY Post is now reporting that there were two other Antifa people there, according to a law enforcement source. According to the Post, the two people disguised themselves as Trump supporters in pro-Trump clothing. The law enforcement source identified the two Antifa people when the law enforcement source spotted them during monitoring the video coverage of what was going on.
The infiltrators were recognized due to their participation in New York City demonstrations, and were believed to have joined in the rioting so that Trump would get blamed, the source said.
Hopefully we hear more about this story so we can get more background. But we wanted to note that story out there in the general overall discussion of “was there Antifa there?”
