Jon Stewart and Dave Chappelle Absolutely Destroy Conservative Activist Candace Owens

Frank Figliuzzi: Fox Is Pushing FBI Insurrection Conspiracy Theory To Protect GOP Lawmakers Who May Be Involved

In the days after the January insurrection, few Conservative lawmakers or media members were willing to defend the rioters. As time has gone on, there has been a push by Republican Reps. and Fox News personalities to downplay the events of that day.

Recently, Tucker Carlson has began hinting that the people arrested for their roles in the riots were actually undercover FBI agents. Frank Figliuzzi had a theory as to why Fox is allowing this.

The former FBI agent began by telling Nicolle Wallace, “Let’s be clear here, we’re not talking about conspiracies that just spontaneously sprung up from the population as they do — urban legends that need to get swatted down or that take on a life of their own — we’re looking at conspiracy as a deliberate strategy.”

Figliuzzi then said of Fox:

“I think that they are frightened out of their minds that the FBI is actually looking at the root causes of this. And we have some confirmation of that because NBC News obtained one of the FBI interview transcripts of one of the January 6 defendants. And low and behold, what is one of the questions they asked him? ‘Do you know anybody in Congress or congressional staffers? “If that is becoming a standardized question under certain circumstances, they have every right to be worried and that’s why we’ll see them continue to plant this cockamamy theory that the FBI did it.” read more

WATCH: David Farenthold Explains What Kind of Information Trump Org. COO May be Able to Give to Investigators

The New York investigators looking into the Trump Organization have continued to widen their probe. Allen Weisselberg, the long time CFO of the company has been in their cross-hairs for months.

Weisselberg, though, has reportedly been a reluctant witness against his boss. So now investigators have set their sights on COO Matthew Calamari. According to a new report, Calamari and his son are being advised to lawyer up.

During a Monday night appearance on Dateline White House, David Farenthold explained what this might mean for Trump. The Washington Post scribe told Nicolle Wallace:

You’re right that it seems very similar to the Weisselberg situation, these folks have been compensated not just salary but apparently apartments. The key is what value the Calamaris might have to prosecutors. He doesn’t play the same role in the company that Weisselberg does. He functions more like a COO than Calamari does. Weisselberg makes a lot of decisions. Calamari is a former bodyguard, he doesn’t handle the executive decisions. So I’m not sure that calamari could tell you that Donald Trump ordered this decision or that decision. That said, he may be in legal trouble himself and I’m sure that he could provide something of value to prosecutors.”
