FBI Tracked 5,723 Trump Supporters by their Phones with Help From Google at Jan. 6 US Capitol Protest – Because That Is the Most Pressing Security Issue in America Today

As long suspected, but not confirmed until October 13, 2022, the FBI testified that geo-tracking data is accurate and reliable.
A bombshell report by the Electronic Freedom Foundation (EFF) revealed the “vast, secretive” partnership between private companies and the federal government to surveil and track the movements of millions of Americans.

According to the EFF, the Biden Regime’s alphabet agencies, including ICE, the FBI, US Secret Service, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the Department of Defense (DoD), as well as state and local law enforcement, are being funneled hordes of private cell phone location data by private brokers who harvest the information.

This is the same tactic that Gregg Phillips, Catherine Engelbrecht, and True The Vote used for their investigation into the mail-in ballot dropbox fraud during the 2020 election. The cell phone location data collected by this group was used to identify the network of Democrat operatives who committed mass election fraud, as seen in the recently-released documentary “2000 Mules.”

The FBI was alleged to have used this data to identify patriotic protesters who traveled to Washington DC on January 6, 2021, to support President Trump and the US Constitution.

Tens of thousands of nearly one million protesters later walked to the US Capitol following President Trump’s speech.

That is where the FBI used geotracking to identify the movements of several targeted individuals.

Last week the FBI-DOJ confirmed they were using geotracking methods in their garbage lawsuit against the Oath Keepers.
On October 13, 2022, FBI Special Agent Jennifer Banks testified in the criminal prosecution of the Oath Keepers in USA v. Stewart Rhodes, et al, Criminal Case No. 1:22-cr-00015, that the same geolocation data underlying True the Vote’s and Dnesh D’Souza’s “2000 Mules” movie of widespread voter fraud in the November 3, 2020, presidential election  IS ACCURATE and reliable.
More than that, the prosecution RELIED UPON that technology in prosecuting the Oath Keepers.
Special Agent Jennifer Banks testified in previous trials on the use of geotracking and phone data to identify suspects in FBI investigations.

And now we know the extent the of FBI’s spying operation following the Jan. 6 protests in Washington DC on Jan. 6.

The FBI used geotracking to identify 5,723 devices of Trump supporters on January 6, 2021.

These people committed the “crime” of protesting their government and a fraudulent election.

Now they must be punished.

What a complete waste of taxpayer money.

And what a complete violation of individual rights!

95% of the people they tracked committed the crime of standing near the US Capitol on January 6th.  There were no markers up that they were trespassing.

This shows the current rot and depravity of the American ruling class.

Wired.com reported:

THE FBI’S BIGGEST-EVER investigation included the biggest-ever haul of phones from controversial geofence warrants, court records show. A filing in the case of one of the January 6 suspects, David Rhine, shows that Google initially identified 5,723 devices as being in or near the US Capitol during the riot. Only around 900 people have so far been charged with offenses relating to the siege.

The filing suggests that dozens of phones that were in airplane mode during the riot, or otherwise out of cell service, were caught up in the trawl. Nor could users erase their digital trails later. In fact, 37 people who attempted to delete their location data following the attacks were singled out by the FBI for greater scrutiny.
