The news has created a sensation in the US that Donald Trump’s pro-right wing groups have penetrated into the US National Security Guard, the main security force. On Monday morning (according to Indian time), news agency AP reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) feared that there might be an attack in the hall inside the swearing-in of elected President Joe Biden. According to the AP, on the basis of this doubt, the FBI has started a thorough investigation of all the National Guard personnel being deployed. As many as 25,000 soldiers of National Guards from different states have been called to Washington for Biden’s swearing-in ceremony.
Meanwhile, TV channel NBC News broke the sensational news that the FBI is investigating whether groups that raided Capitol Hill (Parliament House) on January 6 received financial support from foreign governments, organizations or individuals. The FBI is investigating the information received by Bitcoin, especially a French citizen, of giving nearly half a million dollars through bitcoin. This information was obtained from the documents of the company which analyzes crypto currency transfer. Bitcoin is also a crypto currency.
The FBI has noted that Russian, Iranian and Chinese influencers (elements influencing public opinion) are taking great advantage of this since the January 6 incident. They are using this incident to propagate that America is moving towards political disintegration. The FBI has stated in its related document – Russia and its proxy media have greatly publicized the Capitol Hill incident, impeachment of President Trump and social media censorship imposed on Trump. A Russian media report said that members of Antifa (anti-fascist faction who are anti-Trump) disguised and joined Trump supporters and are the ones responsible for raiding Capitol Hill.
Meanwhile, the Chinese media has used that incident to stigmatize America’s democratic rule, portray America as a decaying country, and justify its crackdown on China’s opponents in Hong Kong. The FBI’s Counter Intelligence Department is investigating a foreign hand in the Capitol Hill incident. Even before this, many current and former FBI officials have said that Russia and other foreign agencies are helping right-wing and left-wing political extremists in America. American counterterrorism experts say that the attachment between the white militants of America and the Russian government is old.
An FBI official told NBC News that in the case of bitcoin transfers, it appears that a right-wing French citizen committed suicide on December 8 after sending money. The official said that after this came to light, the FBI started investigating whether the money was used for illegal acts. According to the FBI official, this information has also given rise to allegations of money laundering and deep conspiracy.
According to the information received, the first thing about Bitcoin transfer of French citizen was discussed on a blog called China Analysis. It was told that a total of 28.15 BTC (about 5 lakh 22 thousand dollars) was transferred to a total of 22 different addresses. Most of these addresses are from right-wing activists. Among them is the right-wing podcaster Nick Fuentes, who got bitcoins worth around two and a half million dollars. Fuentes lectured at a Trump supporter rally in Michigan last year. He was also involved in a Trump supporter rally in Washington on January 6.
