An investigative reporter declared he found irregularities concerning the highly-publicized case of U.S. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn and others involved in the Jan. 6 demonstration.
Journalist Steve Baker of Blaze News alleged that Dunn, a “hero” to left-wing activists who was present at the protest, wrote a notorious and anonymous letter after the event. The media played up the note and its contentions.
The writing blasted minority lawmakers who did not jump on the Democratic bandwagon and support a Jan. 6 commission. The author was not identified at the time.
The letter that was used to push through the illegitimate January 6th committee was drafted up by Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn, according to Steve Baker.@TPC4USA joins @EmeraldRobinson to discuss. pic.twitter.com/R5qr69bYmh

But not only did Baker assert that the note originated with Dunn, he said that Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) encouraged the officer to write it. This despite clear Capitol Police regulations prohibiting personnel from assuming political positions while representing the department.
Other allegations include Dunn misused professional time for a political cause and that Capitol Police knew of this infraction and initiated an investigation. Authorities allegedly kept Dunn’s hand in writing the letter out of the public eye.
Baker believes Dunn was assisted in producing his note by members of the Capitol press corps.
The journalist further alleged Dunn’s authorship likely disqualified him from providing testimony to the House Jan. 6 commission. He also testified in the Oath Keepers trial.
Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson also criticized the officer who became a media darling during the Jan. 6 hearings. A 2019 tweet showed, according to the conservative commentator, that Dunn “is an angry, left-wing political activist.”
The social media posting claimed, “Racism is so American, that when you protest it, people think you are protesting America!” Dunn also expressed his support for radical leftist Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MI).
On his former Fox program, Carlson noted that Dunn would appear before the committee and “pretend to speak for the country’s law enforcement community.”
The Capitol Police officer fired back, claiming without evidence that many of the Jan. 6 protesters were “Carlson’s supporters.”
Dunn was used as a Democratic prop during the contentious and highly partisan House Jan. 6 hearings. That he was allegedly the anonymous writer of the controversial letter concerning the protest should hardly be a shock.
It is part and parcel of the Democratic playbook — to fake outrage and obscure the true nature of Jan. 6 and other events.
