Is President Trump right again? Newly released bodycam footage obtained due to the court trial of January 6 defendant William Pope of Topeka, Kansas, shows a Metropolitan Police Department officer saying he was “set up.”

“There would have been no January 6, as we know it if Nancy Pelosi heeded my recommendation to bring 10,000 Soldiers, or the National Guard, into the Capitol,” the 45th president contended.

New Metropolitan Police Department bodycam footage of MPD officer Lawrence Lazewski from January 6 shows him and another MPD officer verbalizing his belief that police had been “set up” on January 6.

‘They Set Us Up’

The footage shows officer Lazewski approaching a group of officers after retreating on the Upper West Terrance of the Capitol.

One officer on Lazeweski’s body camera footage was quite animated and appeared frustrated about how easily the Capitol was infiltrated and stated:

“They set us the [expletive] up! That’s what they did—They set us up!”

“They set up [Unit] 64, absolutely, and then they ask you all to come two hours later. They set us up.”

Lazewski said, “They needed everybody right away,” to which the other officer replied, “Nah, right away, they set us the [expletive] up. We ain’t got [expletive].”

“I didn’t realize how bad—they set us up to fail,” Lazewski commented at one point.

The other unidentified officer appeared to agree with Lazewski, saying, “They did!”

“There was no way we were winning that!” Lazewski said. “Now you’ve got at least four platoons that are just gassed out!”

A few moments later, the unidentified officer said, “Take this mother[expletive],” as he waved his hand at the Capitol in disgust.


Here is the bodycam of MPD officer Lawrence Lazewski footage in its entirety that was released. The portion of the video that went viral and is posted above can be seen at the 1:32:38 mark.

The newly released bodycam footage corroborates Trump’s claims about January 6 and how Nancy Pelosi knowingly declined to properly reinforce police presence by using the National Guard.
In a tweet from January 7, 2022, Trump spokesperson Liz Harrington reminded Americans that former Speaker Nancy Pelosi IGNORED President Trump’s recommendation to bring 10,000 National Guard troops into the Capitol.

And why did Nancy Pelosi’s daughter Andrea Pelosi say, You’re going to be able to laugh about this one day,” regarding the ridiculousness of people referring to Jan 6 as an “insurrection?’

Yesterday,  100 Percent Fed Up wrote about another newly released bodycam video from Capitol and DC Metro Police showing new evidence of undercover federal agents walking around on the sidewalk in DC near the Capitol on January 6.

And finally, with all of the footage showing Ray Epps organizing and even participating in the activity outside of the Capitol on Jan 6, why was he removed from the FBI’s Most Wanted list?

Watch Epps participate in hoisting a massive Trump sign over the heads of Capitol Police. Other men in the video below have been arrested for participating in this activity. So why is Ray Epps a free man? And why do the Democrats and our top intelligence officials work so hard to protect him?

On January 11, 2022, FBI National Security Branch Executive Assistant Director Jill Sanborn was questioned by the US Senate Judiciary Committee by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) on whether or not FBI agents or confidential informants played a role on Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol incident that Democrats and their allies in the media have labeled an “insurrection” and “domestic terror attack.” During a recent interview with Carlson, Sen Fox News’ Tuckator Cruz himself apologized for referring to the incident as a “terror attack” on the Capitol.

At the Senate Judiciary Committee’s “The Domestic Terrorism Threat One Year After January 6” hearing, Senator Cruz drilled down on Jill Sandborn, demanding she reveals the extent of the FBI’s involvement in the incident.

“Did any FBI agents or confidential informants actively participate in the events of January 6th? Yes or no?” Sen. Cruz asked.

FBI’s Jill Sanborn: “I can’t answer that.”

Senator Cruz began to ask more direct questions about Ray Epps, a man seen on Jan 5 encouraging Trump supporters to go inside the Capitol on Jan. 6. Mr. Epps was also seen in several cases encouraging Trump supporters to breach the Capitol throughout the day.

Cruz asked Jill Sanborn a direct question about Ray Epps: “Ms. Sanborn, was Ray Epps a fed?”

Ms. Sanborn replied: “Sir, I cannot answer that question.”

“Ms. Sanborn, a lot of Americans are concerned that the Federal Government deliberately encouraged illegal and violent conduct on January 6th. My question to you—and this is not an ordinary law enforcement question—this is a question about public accountability—Did federal agents, or those in service of federal agents, actively encourage violent and criminal conduct on January 6th?” Cruz said.

“Not to my knowledge,” a defiant Sandborn responded.


Is anyone else looking forward to seeing the over 40,000 hours of footage from January 6th that Speaker McCarthy turned over to Fox News host Tucker Carlson?
