Bomb-Sniffing Dog Was At DNC On January 6, Raising Further Questions About Undetected Pipe Bomb

Newly uncovered video shows that a bomb-sniffing dog was at the Democratic National Committee (DNC) on the morning of January 6, 2021, without detecting a supposed pipe bomb that was sitting only a few feet away.

The security footage adds to the major questions about the supposed pipe bombs that were planted on the eve of January 6 at the DNC and near the Republican National Committee (RNC). The FBI says the bombs were planted around 8 p.m. on January 5, but remained undetected until the next afternoon, when they were both discovered within minutes of the Capitol being breached by trespassers.

The Capitol Police have said the findings of the bombs diverted resources at a critical time, thus allowing January 6 demonstrations at the Capitol to get out of hand.

The attempted bombing of political headquarters would be by far the most newsworthy aspect of January 6, compellingly making the case that it was a deadly insurrection. Yet Democrats and law enforcement have barely mentioned them since.

Kamala Harris was at the DNC at the time, a fact she concealed to the extent that the Department of Justice falsely stated that she was at the Capitol and used that non-fact to suggest that trespassers there might have been endangering her.

She gave a speech likening January 6 to Pearl Harbor and September 11, but she went out of her way not to mention the pipe bombs, saying that she was safe only because she “had left” the Capitol, instead of saying that she had gone to the DNC, where a pipe bomb was found just a few feet away.

The fact that people did not know the vice president-elect was at the DNC avoided questions about how a bomb could have avoided detection given that the Secret Service would perform sweeps of locations where a high-level protectee such as the Vice President-elect went.

But the new video, released by House Committee on Administration Oversight Subcommittee Chair Barry Loudermilk (R-Georgia) and first reported by Julie Kelly, shows that a bomb-sniffing dog was present, perhaps even separately from Harris’ detail.

At 9:29 a.m., a security camera pointed to the DNC shows a bomb-sniffing canine and his handler walk into frame from the right side, as the handler walks the dog around the walls of the building. The purported pipe bomb was sitting by a bench some 20 feet to the right of the camera frame, suggesting that the dog walked right by it just before entering the camera’s view.

At 9:44 a.m., a small SUV pulls into the DNC driveway, and the handler opens its doors and has the dog stick its snout into each one. After the dog does not alert, the SUV is allowed to enter.

The DNC did not respond to questions from The Daily Wire about what type of security it has, whether it has a dog on site, and how the bomb was not detected.

Harris arrived at the DNC at 11:25 a.m.

Video from the same camera, released by Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kentucky), shows officers’ curious reaction when they are notified of the bomb at 1:05 p.m. A man comes into the frame from the right, just as the bomb-sniffing dog did, and goes up to a police car and speaks to officers in a black SUV and a local police cruiser. The officers remain in their vehicle for several minutes afterwards, before milling about casually. They allow a group of children to cross the road and walk directly in front of the bomb. An officer eventually takes a picture of the bomb with his phone.

Harris exited the DNC at 1:17 p.m. The DNC would not tell The Daily Wire whether the building was evacuated after the bomb was found.

The supposed bomber was never found, despite the FBI using high-tech methods to track down hundreds of people for minor crimes like trespassing during the Capitol riot. The FBI released a wanted poster with only two grainy pictures of the suspect. A camera is trained at the bench where the bomb was planted, but no video from that camera was released of the bomb actually being placed.

Former FBI agent Kyle Seraphin told The Daily Wire that he was assigned to surveil the home of a former Air Force officer who, he was told, the FBI had quickly tied to the bombing by using cameras to follow the person into the subway, and identifying the Metro farecard that was used. He was blocked from interviewing the man, and quickly pulled off the surveillance and assigned to review mundane leads about trespassers, he said.

The then-head of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, Steve D’Antuono, hyped the bombs to the media, saying “They would have exploded. They could have exploded,” before acknowledging under oath that the bombs were connected to 60-minute kitchen timers that could not have detonated the bombs more than 17 hours later.

Massie told The Daily Wire that “This is an ongoing coverup at this point… It doesn’t make any sense why they wouldn’t be promoting that threat to advance that narrative unless they had something to do with the pipe bombs and they’re trying to memory-hole the whole thing to avoid embarrassment,” he said of Democrats and law enforcement.
