FBI agent-turned-whistleblower Kyle Seraphin said the FBI had quickly tied the supposed January 6 pipe bomber to a Metro fare card and a license plate but did not allow him to interview the person of interest and pulled his team off that lead. So reports Luke Rosiak at DAILY WIRE.
Agents had used security camera video along the “bomber’s” route to track him to the Metro station and were able to identify the Metro fare card he used. From the fare card, they determined the stop in Northern Virginia where he got off, and surveillance footage in the parking lot showed him getting into a car. (This is just the investigative scenario one would think would have taken place, given the abundance of video cameras everywhere.)
The fare card and the license plate were both in the name of the same person: a retired Air Force chief master sergeant who was now working as a contractor with a security clearance. Intriguing.
Seraphin and his team were assigned to surveil the home of this “highly specific lead” for days but, incredibly, were blocked from interviewing him. As Rosiak reports, Seraphin said that “they were called off the target completely and told to pore through low-priority leads about minor January 6 participants.”
Read Rosiak’s full story, here. If Seraphin is Dan Bongino’s guest today (Wednesday), which is very likely the case, we’ll have an update tomorrow.
And in the meantime, here’s Michael Shellenberger on what we currently know. (It still refers to the FBI as being “evidently...unable to track him down.”)
