An exclusive analysis by Revolver News can prove that the FBI is in possession of, but has refused to release, security camera footage of the January 6 pipe bomber planting the pipe bomb at the DNC building at 7:52 p.m. on January 5th.
This extraordinary revelation should be the immediate subject of Congressional inquiry as to why the FBI has stonewalled release of the footage.
An executive summary of the missing footage has been condensed in this video below:
As described above and in more detail below, the stationary camera overlooking the DNC park benches — from which the FBI released a clip on March 9, 2021 timestamped approximately 7:42 p.m. on the night of January 5 2021 — should have a clear “moneyshot” picture of the pipe bomber reaching in to his bag and depositing the pipe bomb by the right bottom corner of the circled park bench in the image below.
All the FBI needs to do is show the same video camera’s footage from 10 minutes later:
We know this because of a simple Google Earth walkthrough (in detail below) and because the pipe bomber is captured at these same park benches on a second security camera whose footage the FBI released on September 8 last year (stillshot from such camera immediately below).
The reason the FBI has been hiding this key camera footage for 18 months is, for now, a matter of speculation.
What is now beyond speculation, however, is that the FBI has dead-on footage of the bomber planting the bomb at the DNC building. Yet despite a $100,000 reward out to the public asking for information leading the bomber’s arrest, the FBI is refusing to share this “moneyshot” footage with the public.
We will walk through the proof in detail below.
A Google Earth Walkthrough of the Pipe Bomber’s Path
To discover the fact of this missing footage from the FBI, Revolver took the path the FBI alleges the pipe bomber took and retraced the steps in Google Earth.
This path is set out by the FBI’s own video summary released on September 8 last year:
For purposes of the DNC building pipe bomb, the path starts one block north of the DNC building. At 7:40 p.m., per the FBI’s released footage from March 9 last year, the pipe bomber is walking south on the eastern sidewalk down South Capitol St. A still from that FBI YouTube video is below:
It was from this video that Revolver identified last year that the FBI must be withholding more footage of the pipe bomber than they have revealed. In the final frame of this video where the pipe bomber waits around for minutes, cell in hand, the pipe bomber is still in frame when the FBI cuts the footage. This is a stationary camera, meaning there must be more footage since the subject hasn’t left:
This is what tipped Revolver off last year that the FBI may be replicating the sketchy Jeffrey Epstein suicide situation, where, in FBI custody, the stationary cameras conveniently “broke” and then the CCTV footage was conveniently “erased”.
Recently, Revolver went into Google Earth to replicate this scene. This street in blue circle below, one street north of the DNC building, in red below:
You can see in Google Earth street view that scene corresponds to the street view below [note to the public: do not harass citizens or families living on this block, we are simply recreating the FBI’s own described path from publicly available information]:
If you turn around from that house you can see it’s about 2 blocks from the Capitol:
And if you keep walking south (like the bomb bomber did) you get to the DNC building on the next block (circled here). As per FBI video, the pipe bomber was loitering on the next block over, seeming to wait for a signal to go over to the DNC building the next door down:
Per the FBI’s graphic, below we recognize the pipe bomber’s walking path on South Capitol, and the circled area indicates the DNC park benches where the bomb would be found the next day on the 6th of January:
Again per the FBI graphic, below we depict the pipe bomber’s complete walking path around the DNC building.
He (or she) first arrives at the two-bench small park adjacent to the side of the building. He sits down on the street-side bench (what we call “Bench 1” in the summary video) at roughly 7:42 to 7:45 p.m. He checks his phone. He waits a minute. He gets up and walks around the building. He comes back to the benches. He sits on the building-side bench (what we call “Bench 2”) and deposits the bomb there, then leaves:
This is the street-side park bench (Bench 1) that the bomber sits on when he enters the DNC grounds, before he does his lap. He still has his bomb in the bag at this point:
Here’s is a still from the video the FBI publicly released from Camera 1 in the DNC park area showing the bomber on Bench 1 right after he enters:
You can corroborate it’s the same site in Google Earth and the FBI video not just from the identical map and identical bench and identical crosswalk at the Canal St. intersection, but also the identical signpost with the silver streaks below the “One Way” sign:
Here’s the Google street view:
Now, the FBI’s publicly released footage from Camera 1 shows the bomber getting up the Bench 1 and beginning his lap around the DNC building. Note he still has bomb in his bag:
That is the end the film from Camera 1, according to the FBI. But that is not only impossible, it’s a full-fledged scandal. The rest of the pipe bomber’s path illuminates why.
We are then told by the FBI that the bomber returns from his lap around the DNC building to the same park bench area, but this time he sits on the building-side park bench (what we call “Bench 2”). We know this because the FBI has disclosed a video from Camera 2, situated on the opposite side of the building from Camera 1:
It is from here that the bomber is said to have reached into his bag, pulled out the pipe bomb, and left it by the shrubbery-side leg of the bench:
In Google earth, you can pinpoint that exact location to right here:
You can see the bomb was just 5 to 7 feet from the side of the DNC building.
Since we now know Secret Service was guarding this building after the late reveal that Secret Service drove Kamala Harris to this very site at the DNC building, ask yourself, could the Secret Service really fail to discover this pipe bomb in a security sweep just 5 to 7 feet from the building’s exterior?
The north-side security camera facing south (what we call “Camera 2”) should have been the FBI’s perfect moneyshot. They caught the pipe bomber on the park bench, reaching into the bag, pulling out the pipe bomb, and leaving. Incredible! There’s just one problem: you can’t see any of the deeds named above because the entire sequence is occluded by giant shrubbery blocking Camera 2:
