DEA Agent Suspended After Discovery He Had Joined Capitol Coup

  • On Wednesday, Reuters reported that a federal Drug Enforcement Administration agent who joined the crowd outside the Capitol during the violent invasion on January 6th has been suspended pending investigation — the first such probe into a federal officer.
  • “The agent, Mark Ibrahim, declined to comment other than to say in a phone interview that he ‘never entered the building,’ when the crowd breached the Capitol on Jan. 6, setting off violence that left five dead,” reported Brad Heath.
  • Several people with ties to the military and law enforcement were implicated in the Capitol invasion. In some cases, off-duty police officers who participated were turned in by fellow members of their departments.
