Radio journalist Bobby Powell thought someone would be interested in his video evidence exposing two “suspicious actors” taking part in the events on the east side of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
The semiretired Michigan radio journalist and podcaster has spent the past year trying to get politicians, media personalities, pundits, and the FBI to view his video footage and identify the two “suspicious actors.”
Powell wants to see those men charged with the destruction of government property and assault. However, no one wants to do something regarding this.
Powell has learned that his video isn’t welcome in many places. Some people view it as a threat.
In Michigan, he said a politician friend suggested he take a six-figure bribe to keep quiet. When he flatly refused, he says his life was threatened.
The 29 minutes of high-definition video have turned Powell’s life upside down.
As the smoke at the Capitol cleared from the Jan. 6 unrest, Powell began his long quest to find an audience for his video evidence. He was in Washington that day as a credentialed reporter representing his news podcast “The Truth is Viral” and radio station WCHY in Cheboygan, Michigan.
After he called the FBI on Jan. 15, 2021, an agent from the bureau’s Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) called him back and took his information. He also contacted the U.S. Secret Service and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS).
Powell gave the address to his website where agents could view his Jan. 6 videos, and offered to come in for an interview. Even after nearly a half-dozen follow-ups with the FBI and other agencies, there has been no reply from any law enforcement officer.
He also thought photos of the men would eventually appear among the 1,558 individuals on the FBI’s Jan. 6 most-wanted page. That never happened, nor have they been arrested or charged.
“These are two men that are pulling windows out of the Capitol and pushing people inside the doors,” Powell said. “Okay, so why isn’t the FBI interested? That is the key question.”
“The FBI has no comment on the ongoing Jan. 6 investigation,” the agency’s national press office said in an email response.
In the meantime, Powell has uploaded a video link to the Twitter page of the U.S. Capitol Police with the question: “Who are these men?”
Only five minutes later, his Twitter account was permanently suspended.
