An armed man who was filmed being detained at the Capitol rally in support of Jan 6 suspects appears to have been inadvertently exposed as an undercover law enforcement officer by his fellow police.
Journalist @FordFischer said he only witnessed one detainment at the US Capitol rally in support of the Jan. 6 suspects. The person was undercover from a law enforcement or intelligence agency. pic.twitter.com/bJCwEsRkeh— Andy Ngô 🏳️🌈 (@MrAndyNgo) September 18, 2021
Earlier at "Justice for J6" defendants rally:— Ford Fischer (@FordFischer) September 18, 2021
Police surround masked man reportedly armed with a firearm.
He tells them where the gun is, and they pull out his badge.
He's undercover law enforcement.
Without disarming or handcuffing him, police extract him from the event. pic.twitter.com/F1n4PeuXkt
"Are you undercover?" the officers asked the masked man, who gave them a badge.— Ford Fischer (@FordFischer) September 18, 2021
I guess not anymore. pic.twitter.com/EBBx0e8Ucd
The masked man claimed “I’m just here” when asked if he’s undercover as he presented a badge to justify the gun he was apparently wearing, before being pulled out.— Ford Fischer (@FordFischer) September 18, 2021
Other than undercover, he could have hypothetically been simply masked & off duty with his badge and gun concealed. https://t.co/W9OagHNMij
Here's a higher resolution image of his badge:

Another angle of the same guy:
Capitol police arrest a man at the end of the “Justice for J6” demonstration on Saturday, during which protestors called for justice for those arrested in Jan. 6 riots. The reason of his detention remains unknown. #justiceforj6rally pic.twitter.com/8H4tbTU4oN— Servet Günerigök (@servet_ggk) September 18, 2021
Imagine if we had all these officers protecting our southern border from the Haitian invasion taking place in Del Rio!

We could solve the illegal immigration problem in a day if we had half as much protection on our southern border as they have at the Capitol!

BREAKING: I am absolutely stunned by what I’m witnessing right now. We are on a boat in the Rio Grande near the Del Rio international bridge and we are watching as masses of hundreds of migrants walk across the river from Mexico and stream into the US illegally. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/xXE4pDkpIe— Bill Melugin (@BillFOXLA) September 18, 2021
