At least three undercover D.C. Metropolitan Police officers embedded themselves with protesters on January 6, according to newly disclosed court filings. At least one of the officers urged Trump supporters to enter the Capitol Building and climbed over a barricade. Another undercover officer walked directly behind Ashli Babbitt and predicted “someone will get shot,” court documents show.
“This video clearly evidences undercover law enforcement officers urging the crowds to advance up the stairs and scaffolding towards the Capitol on January 6,” wrote January 6 defendant William Pope in one motion. “The government may claim that incidents like this did not happen, but the facts show they did.”
“Since the government cannot be trusted to disclose these facts,” Pope wrote, “it becomes even more important that defense teams, including Pro Se defendants, be able to directly examine the evidence.”
