Vivek Ramaswamy, a Republican presidential candidate, reiterated his belief that the U.S. Capitol riot was an “inside job” involving the federal government during a CNN town hall.

He suggested that the government may have played a role in the events of January 6, 2021, pointing to other instances where he believed the government had been dishonest.

Ramaswamy faced pushback from the moderator and criticism from opponents, with his claims being challenged due to lack of evidence. (Trending: New Movie Obamas Helped Make Raises Eyebrows: ‘Don’t Trust White People’)

“If you had told me [three years ago] that Jan. 6 was in any way an inside job, the subject of government entrapment, I would have told you that was crazy talk ― fringe, conspiracy theory nonsense,” Ramaswamy said.

“I can tell you now, having gone somewhat deep in this: It’s not.”

“Now we come to Jan. 6. The reality is we know that there were federal law enforcement agents in that field,” Ramaswamy said.

“We don’t know how many.”

“I know the establishment doesn’t approve of this message,” he said.

“We should be able to talk about this,” he added. “This is important to talk about.”

Despite his efforts, current polling places him behind other prominent Republican figures in the state of Iowa.

His stance has drawn strong criticism from the Biden re-election campaign, with accusations of engaging in sensationalism for political gain.
