An investigative video circulating on social media attempts to identify several provocateurs and agitators in the Jan. 6 crowd who provoked police to attack innocent civilians.
Twitter user Tank Man provides a detailed breakdown in the video presenting slowed-down clips and commentary revealing the agitators’ methods of assaulting officers.
Amid the assault, other footage shows police discussed not hitting the protesters as it only angered and riled up more of them.
Tank Man further speculates one of the men, suspect #383 on the FBI’s Jan. 6 most wanted list, could have been a foreigner due to his strong accent heard in another video.
The men, who struck police with flag poles, sprayed tear gas in their eyes, and attempted to pull cops down the Capitol steps, committed some of the most heinous violence that day, but thus far they have managed to escape prosecution.

Is it possible these men are more of the undercover federal informants who were among the crowd that day?
