Nearly as soon as the tear gas settled on the U.S. Capitol grounds on Jan. 6, the conspiracy theory began to pick up steam.

“Earlier today, the Capitol was under siege by people who can only be described as antithetical to the MAGA movement,” Laura Ingraham told her viewers on Fox News that night. “They were likely not all Trump supporters, and there are some reports that antifa sympathizers may have been sprinkled throughout the crowd.”

So far there is a grand total of two that have some links with “antifa”. They were known provocateurs that have no allegiance in any direction. The overwhelming majority of those identified and charged claim to be sent by Trump.
