Secret Service Agents Were in Contact with Oath Keepers Before Jan. 6 Attack 
August 23,2023
By Steve Neavling
Before helping lead an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, Oath Keepers leader Stewart Rhodes corresponded with Secret Service agents, according to emails obtained by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics (CREW). 
The Oath Keepers had requested to provided security detail for supporters of then-President Donald Trump during a rally in late 2020. 
The Secret Service previously denied having contact with Rhodes

Bari v. FBI Supervisor Richard Held 
In 1996, the plaintiffs’ attorneys learned of a paid FBI informer whose testimony was being used to justify the arrests. They sought to have the name of the agent revealed, but the presiding judge refused to disclose the information. On October 15, 1997, Judge Claudia Wilken of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California dismissed the claims against Mr. Held and two FBI higher-ups, ruling insufficient evidence, but found that the rest of the FBI defendants could be held for trial. The Oakland police defendants filed an interlocutory qualified immunity appeal challenging the district court’s ruling ordering them to stand trial.

Zinn’s Offer of Expert Testimony on the FBI COINTELPRO Bombing in Bari-Cherney Civil Case

Howard Zinn
Auburndale, MA 02466
April 30, 2001
Dear Mr. Cunningham:
It is my considered opinion, knowing of the car bomb explosion which injured Judi Bari and Darryl Cherney in 1990, and knowing of their speedy subsequent arrest on sensational criminal charges, that the apparent ‘frame-up’ of the two as supposed bombers — as reflected in the evidence described in the “big brief” from Bari v. USA — is consistent with the history of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. That history, for many years before 1990, and continuing after that, shows that the FBI has repeatedly attempted to harass, injure, even cause the death of individuals in order to disrupt the activities of organizations critical of government and the Establishment.
That history indicates that in the pursuit of this disruption, the FBI has again and again violated the constitutional rights of Americans, including their right to freedom of speech and freedom of association. It indicates that the FBI would have been ready
