Let’s put aside any opinions you may have about Vivek as a possible Republican presidential candidate in 2024 or any relevance that the people at CNN would choose to broadcast to their paltry audience. Truth can sometimes be found in strange places and with odd bedfellows.
On Wednesday night, the tech entrepreneur was a GOP presidential candidate and appeared on CNN for a town hall program. A question about January 6, 2021, has people buzzing.

CNN Moderator Abby Phillip started:
You used the term “inside job” to describe the events of January 6 in the debate [prior GOP presidential primary].
She asked him if he was worried that a convicted Capitol Rioter highlighted his remarks during sentencing.
He didn’t like it. The full exchange is below:
Ramaswamy said: “We know there were federal agents in the field. We don’t even know how many.”
Phillip interrupted him rudely (and this would not be the last). But he commented about the tactic before continuing with his response. Ramaswamy referred to her interruption as the “establishment [not applauding] this message.” He said that “it’s important to talk about.”
He was applauded by the audience.
Phillip: “You said there were federal agents present in the crowd of January 6.” No evidence exists that federal agents were in the crowd.
Here’s what I want to say, Abby.
Do you guys want to know where I am? You would have told me that it was almost three years ago when January 6, 2021, happened. You would have been surprised to learn that three years ago I was still a biotech CEO and not well-versed in the world. I was more focused on developing drugs than consuming media.
I would have laughed at you if you told me January 6 was an inside job or a government entrapment.
After having delved into this a bit, I can assure you that it is not. The reality is that. We have a government and technology that have lied to us systematically for the past several years, about COVID-19’s origin, about the Hunter Biden Laptop that was told by 51 CIA specialists was false, or otherwise. Now we know it is true.
All of the Trump-Russia collusion disinformation hoaxes can be found on the list. We now come to the 6th of January. We know for a fact that federal agents were in the field. We don’t even know how many.
It’s a shame…
The moderator tried to portray him as a kook and a conspiracy theorist to silence the facts and questions many people from different political backgrounds have asked rightly about what happened on January 6. The media and Left are not strangers to readers who try to undermine the credibility of those who speak out like Ramaswamy here did about J6, COVID-19, and the Russia collusion hoax.
Recently, we covered a letter signed by two GOP subcommittees regarding the whistleblower who recently made a bombshell claim about the COVID-19 origins. The CIA allegedly tried to cover this up with bribes.
Matt Gaetz, along with other Republicans in the House Committee, grilled Attorney General Merrick Garland on the FBI and the J6 at a hearing held in September.
Gaetz concluded by asking, as previously reported if the FBI lost track of the number of informants at the Capitol that day and had ordered an audit. The FBI was supposed to do an audit to determine how many informants were present. Garland did not want to answer this question. He wanted to continue the fight with Gaetz over his response to Gaetz’s China question. He responded that, avoiding the question of Jan. 6.
Ramaswamy was particularly good at the Wednesday town hall in linking the lack of transparency on Jan. 6 to the trial over Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s “kidnapping” plot, about which we had written that it had been debunked. He said:
The government selected 12 hours out of 200 hours. Not me, but the government did it. Release everything. Let me finish by saying that this topic is very important.
Phillip tried again to redirect his response. He continued:
“I believe this is the civil liberty issue of our day, Gretchen Whitmer’s kidnapping.” The host again attacked his answer.
I’m keeping it. I want to make it clear that it is the same FBI issue or even a part of it.
At the end of the trial, three people involved in an alleged plot against Gretchen Whitmer for kidnapping were found not guilty because they were caught. It means that government agents manipulated them to do something else they wouldn’t normally have done.
One juror went up to the defendant, hugged him, and apologized for what the government put the poor guy through, who had to walk across the street to a Mexican restaurant to get water.
They were exploited by FBI agents who used credit cards of up to $5,000 to lure them into a kidnapping scheme that was false but was entrapment.
It’s important to hear what Rep. Victoria Spartz, (R-IN), told Garland at the hearing back in September about how many Americans, who attended a Washington, D.C. protest, feel fearful of their government, a government that is supposed to protect them, not harm or attack them. My colleague included and mentioned the X-post-video below at the time:
As someone who grew up in the Soviet Union, I’m disturbed by the fact that so many hardworking Americans—including my constituents—are afraid of political persecution by our own government.
Unfortunately, it does not seem like AG Garland is.

Spartz stated, in part:
FBI agents showed up at people’s homes. There were FBI phone numbers posted all over my district and town.
The people are really afraid. Just to be sure, if you’re not aware of it, you [make people fear the government]. This is a serious problem when people are scared.
The town hall on CNN made something very clear: the legacy media no longer hides it. There is a systematic effort to help their allies within the Democrat Party with troublesome issues, including the electability and the Jan. 6 date of the former president Donald Trump.
