So much for ‘armed insurrection’: FBI official says no guns confiscated at Jan. 6 Capitol riot

An FBI official had some bad news for Democrats at a congressional hearing Wednesday on the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Here’s the Daily Caller:

“How many firearms were confiscated in the Capitol or on Capitol grounds during that day?” Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson asked Jill Sanborn, the FBI official, during a Senate Homeland Security hearing.

“To my knowledge, we have not recovered any on that day from any other arrests at the scene at this point,” replied Sanborn, who serves as FBI assistant director for counterterrorism.

“I don’t want to speak on behalf of Metro and Capitol police, but, to my knowledge, none,” she added.

This rather ruins a Democrat narrative.

Democrats for months have been dining out on about how the mobbing of the Capitol last Jan. 6 was really an “armed insurrection,” and “an assault on democracy,” rather than a crowd that had a few fringe players of no discernible politics who rarely voted, who managed to invade the Capitol due to poor policing, made worse by intelligence from the FBI that was never passed on to them.
