No, Sen. Ron Johnson Didn’t Promote A ‘Conspiracy Theory’ About The Capitol Riot
Federal prosecutors issued indictments alleging that the Capitol raid was, indeed, a conspiracy planned in advance. FBI investigators agreed. Prosecutors say that elements of the criminal conspiracy began as early as November 3, 2020. At the Senate hearing, current and former top U.S. Capitol security officials gave similar assessments, saying that "wide-ranging intelligence failures" prevented detection of what became a "military-style, coordinated assault." Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who co-chaired the hearing, concluded, "This was a planned insurrection."
