The Disturbing Effort of the FBI to Go After Journalist for Jan. 6 Reporting

It’s incredible to believe that after more than three years, you still have the FBI trying to go after people for misdemeanors related to January 6, 2021. I don’t think there’s ever been a leftist riot in recent memory that has been treated in the same way. Indeed, in the wake of the riot against former President Donald Trump’s inauguration on Jan. 20, 2017, most of the people got off and had charges dropped. 

In more disturbing news, there’s news that the FBI is going to charge The Blaze journalist Steve Baker on Friday. The thing that’s even more unusual is that while they have been torturing him with the threat of possible prosecution all this time, they still wouldn’t tell him what the charges are and what they are claiming he did. He covered the riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6 as an independent journalist. 

Here’s the video of Baker talking about it the last time they threatened him in Dec. 2023. 

Baker’s attorneys believe that this is a retaliation against him for his reporting about Jan. 6 that has embarrassed the DOJ. Among the stories that Baker has done has been calling into question the testimony of a member of Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s security detail, Capitol Police Special Agent David Lazarus, and questions regarding the pipe bomb found at the DNC. The Blaze reported that the man who found that bomb was a Capitol Police officer, according to sources. 

Baker shared on X that at this time, there’s a “signed arrest warrant” and that he has to surrender on Friday morning in Dallas, Texas. Even though he was told that it was told it was misdemeanors charges and that they didn’t intend to detain him, it sounds like they’re trying to play games, suggesting that he’s going to be put into a jumpsuit. 

“They seem to feel the need to give me a dose of the personal humiliation treatment,” Baker said, also explaining that he still doesn’t even know what the charges are. He said he thinks they think he will post them on social media.

All this time spent on a journalist, and the timing stinks of retribution for his reporting. If they had anything on him, why didn’t they charge him? Meanwhile, where’s all the attention to the leftist riots and violence? This is disgraceful.
