It would be the first half decent thing to come out of the fed gov since Jan 20.

Do we know how many were Antifa and how many were just there to support Trump?

There's no question Antifa was there. At least one Antifa/BLM member was charged, but obviously that pales in comparison to the many hundreds of others that were charged. If Antifa people there were smart, they'd have incited the riot without actually doing any damage themselves. But of course Antifa people are not smart by definition.

To me there is no question a great many were real Trump supporters that got caught up in the moment. Having said that, I think the pipe bombs are a very open question and if I had to bet, I'd say they were put there by Antifa people.

There were videos of Antifa men inside the Capitol building. They were taped breaking glass windows in doors. The MAGA supporters were walking around and doing nothing but trespass. The DOJ dropped charges against most of the MAGA people. But the ANTIFA men were the violent ones spreading rumors.
