During the Justice For J6 rally in Washington DC an armed masked man posing as a protestor was surrounded by Capitol Police and escorted out of the area upon the discovery that he was actually a federal law enforcement officer. Unlike many individuals jailed on seemingly harmless charges on January 6, the federal officer will not be facing charges for having a gun during the rally.
While some warned of a potential protest sabotage at the hands of undercover federal law enforcement ahead of the Justice For J6 rally in Washington, D.C. after multiple reports surfaced in recent months showcasing evidence of undercover federal involvement on January 6, but the September 18 event went largely without incident. However, in one bizarre instance that has been widely mocked online, a masked man was surrounded by riot gear-clad Capitol Police upon the discovery that he was carrying a firearm on his person, drawing concern from journalists, protesters, and those who were following the protest that day at home.
The entire mood changed when the masked man pulled out his badge – revealing himself to be an undercover federal law enforcement officer, vindicating the initial presumptions of countless Americans across the country. As National File reported, the man identified himself as undercover law enforcement, telling authorities The man replied “I’m just here” when asked if he was an undercover law enforcement when police found his firearm and gun. There is no confirmation that this man was on-duty law enforcement. Capitol Police extracted the masked man from the event without disarming or handcuffing him.
Americans have been consistently mocking the “pathetic” attempt by the government to infiltrate the event with undercover federal law enforcement over the days following the protest. “These guys would be great undercover at a golf course on Martha’s Vineyard,” tweeted Donald Trump Jr. after photos of what appears to be undercover federal law enforcement made waves online.

Amid fallout from the armed undercover federal law enforcement officer’s incident with Capitol Police, the Associated Press is now reporting that the individual was supposedly working with “US Customs and Border Protection,” and will not face charges for bringing a firearm to the protest.
“A federal law enforcement officer was arrested carrying a gun at Saturday’s rally at the U.S. Capitol billed to support the suspects charged in January’s insurrection but will not be prosecuted.
The 27-year-old New Jersey man is an officer with U.S. Customs and Border Protection. He was arrested by Capitol Police for illegally possessing a gun on the grounds of the Capitol after people in the crowd reported seeing him with a handgun and notified nearby officers.”
The AP report also claims that his “arrest and presence at the event were surprising because the rally was billed as an event to support those who have been charged in January’s riot.”
The confirmed presence of federal law enforcement at the Justice For J6 rally in DC comes after National File confirmed the presence of undercover federal law enforcement embedded within the crowd at the January 6 Stop The Steal rally.
