INTRO: JEREMY BROWN IS A NAME YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW. HE IS A DECORATED VETERAN WHO SERVED TWENTY YEARS IN THE U.S. ARMY SPECIAL FORCES, RETIRING IN 2012.

 

HE WAS AMONG THE THOUSANDS WHO WENT TO WASHINGTON D.C. ON JANUARY 6, 2021. HE WAS ACCUSED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF TRESPASSING AND DISORDERLY CONDUCT AT THE U.S. CAPITOL AND ITS GROUNDS..

 

IN SEPTEMBER 2021, HE WAS ARRESTED AT HIS TAMPA HOME. DURING A SEARCH OF HIS RV, OFFICIALS SAID THEY FOUND ILLEGAL WEAPONS AND A NATIONAL SECURITY DOCUMENT.

IN APRIL 2023, HE WAS SENTENCED TO 87 MONTHS IN PRISON.

 

THAT’S THE OFFICIAL STORY. YOU CAN READ ABOUT IT IN THE PAPERS.

 

BUT BROWN SAYS THERE’S MORE TO IT THAN THAT. A LOT MORE

 

LARA LOGAN WANTED TO HEAR THE MISSING PARTS. SO SHE VISITED THE CITRUS COUNTY DETENTION FACILITY IN FLORIDA FOR AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW.

 

AND JEREMY BROWN HAD QUITE A BIT TO SAY.

 

00;00;42;09 – 00;00;45;24

Lara

Okay. I see you. You have a little homework with you, A.

 

00;00;45;24 – 00;00;46;07

Jeremy

Little light.

 

00;00;46;07 – 00;00;48;12

Lara

Reading. Wow. Hi, Jeremy. Hi.

 

00;00;48;13 – 00;00;49;25

Jeremy

How are you? Nice to finally meet you.

 

00;00;50;05 – 00;00;54;11

Lara

I know. Good to meet you. Your chair is over there. I’m going to take that.

 

00;00;54;12 – 00;00;54;29

Jeremy

Sure.

 

WHEN LARA MET JEREMY BROWN, HE WAS WEARING PRISON ORANGE AND HANDCUFFS. AND HE HAD A LOT OF DOCUMENTS THAT HE SAID HELPED EXPLAIN WHAT WAS REALLY GOING ON THE DAY THE AUTHORITIES CAME TO VISIT.

 

BUT EVEN BEFORE THOSE WEAPONS CHARGES, THERE WERE HIS ACTIVITIES ON JANUARY 6TH, WHERE HE WORE MILITARY GEAR, WHICH GOT THE ATTENTION OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

 

01;08;48;08 – 01;08;57;06

Jeremy

I wore gear to delineate myself from the civilian population because I’m in a security role. I also wore a red and blue strobe light on the top of my helmet.

 

01;08;57;17 – 01;09;00;11

Lara

Yeah which but all that got you didn’t have, you.

 

01;09;01;07 – 01;09;05;05

Jeremy

Know, of course it didn’t help me because nothing is going to help you in a set up.

 

01;09;05;21 – 01;09;10;22

Lara

Well, this is true and it that it made it easy for them to paint you as a threat.

 

01;09;11;18 – 01;09;13;06

Jeremy

But I’m their work in security.

 

01;09;13;27 – 01;09;16;02

Lara

See? And how are you doing security for.

 

 

 

 

01;09;16;02 – 01;09;41;10

Jeremy

So our protectee which we didn’t know beforehand, we were told that we were going to be escorting whoever they needed us to escort from the Ellipse to the Capitol. And we have permits a speaking event at the Capitol there in my discovery. But yet that’s been suppressed from the American people. So they claim that we’re trespassing, and yet we had permits for an event on the Capitol grounds approved by the District of Columbia.

 

01;09;41;14 – 01;10;06;00

Jeremy

Yeah, that’s so we were to be escorting speakers. There was rumors that some of the congressmen were going to be utilizing escorts because everyone was walking. As President Trump said, we’re going to walk peacefully from here to the Capitol. Why would the president of the United States say that? Because he knew that there were permitted stages set up at the Capitol for a follow on rally.

 

01;10;06;01 – 01;10;25;11

Jeremy

Yes, except when we got there, there were no stages. So the lady that we were speaking, I was told the lady that we’re escorting, I was told was the mother of one of the speakers. //

01;10;25;11 – 01;10;59;01 // We were to escort her through the crowd because we expected counter-protesters. And that’s the reason why I’m wearing all that gear, because we’re expecting bicycle chains with locks, frozen water bottles, all the same types of tactics, techniques and procedures used by Antifa and BLM and any other counter-protester that was normally showing up to commit violence against Americans who just wanted to exercise their First Amendment.

 

01;10;59;11 – 01;11;15;25

Jeremy

So that’s the reason why I’m in a helmet, I’m in a mask, I’m in eye protection, but I’m dressed. I’m not wearing camouflage. Well, I’m not part of the FBI’s joint terrorism Task force or anything. I’m wearing only green so that I look official.

 

HE ACTUALLY DIDN’T SEE MUCH VIOLENCE THAT DAY.

 

01;12;30;20 – 01;13;00;08

Jeremy

// I didn’t see anything because I’m on the side where there isn’t state violence. See, there’s only violence in that one very narrow corridor. I believe they call it the West Tunnel, which is on the scaffolding side of, the Capitol. I’m on the other side where the main front steps are. And this is why they don’t want the video to come out, because all that surveillance video is going to show that there was no violence anywhere else. // 01;13;27;03 – 01;13;42;27 // And if you look at my body cam footage, the footage, it captures me. You’ll see that the police are just standing there for the longest time. In fact, I got bored watching it and had to fast forward through it to get to the actual part where I was in there.

 

01;13;43;06 – 01;14;07;27

Jeremy

And so they’re literally standing there having conversations with people that are just meandering around and then they receive the order and they march into place and they just start pushing people. There was never a call to disperse, which be normally the case, right? Law enforcement would come out and say, this has been deemed an unlawful assembly and you must disperse the Capitol grounds, has a system called Giant Voice.

 

01;14;08;03 – 01;14;30;07

Jeremy

I’m sure you’ve heard it in Afghanistan and Iraq. It’s a huge speaker system that you can hear it for probably a half mile away. It was never deployed on that day. But, you know, when it was deployed the next day, because we drove by the Capitol, the next day and they were blasting out messages, know this is a restricted area or whatever.

 

01;14;30;13 – 01;15;02;09

Jeremy

But none of that was used on January six, despite us as the American people being told that there was warnings on January 5th of violence. Despite weeks prior, President Trump asking for the National Guard to prepared in order to be ready in case something did happen because there was going to be large numbers there.// 01;15;42;13 – 01;16;09;10 // the president was saying that they needed to be on call in the event that anything happens, which is normal when you have a million people plus show up to an area, you’re going to want additional security just in case anything happens.

 

01;16;09;27 – 01;16;28;10

Jeremy

And yet all of these weird, strange things that that disparate are identifying, you know, it’s it’s like they say they didn’t connect the dots. Right. There’s plenty of dots out there that everyone has a dot, but they can’t connect it to the other dot. Why? Because that’s how compartmentalize operations work.

 

01;16;28;23 – 01;16;52;10

Lara

Now, I know you weren’t there, but in your experience, the one thing I have never understood from watching the footage is there’s plenty of examples of the Capitol Police stepping aside and letting people go in. There is people even inside the building, stepping aside, letting people go away. So why make that stand in the tunnel? Why?

 

01;16;52;17 – 01;16;54;28

Jeremy

Because there’s cameras.

 

01;16;56;08 – 01;16;58;26

Lara

And a tunnel and there’s no way for people to go.

 

01;16;58;26 – 01;17;39;05

Jeremy

That’s all. The footage you ever see of January six is that one area You realize that the Capitol building is nearly a million square feet. How many entrances do you think there are at the Capitol building? Probably 100. If I had if I had to guess, I might be a little over. But yet the only violence that we ever see is that same almost B-roll at this point, the same footage from that West Tunnel area and surrounding that that area where these agitators like scaffolding commander // is is he shouting down commands to the crowd, attempting to incite more violence?

 

01;17;39;05 – 01;18;07;22

Jeremy

But this is going back to the original point that I was making. The other side reacts in these environments. What happened on January 6th is their plan failed. You see. They thought that these provocateurs would incite mass response, but they didn’t. Sure, there was some initial response I mean, if this gentleman throws a rock at me and I’m a riot cop, I’m hitting you.

 

01;18;08;00 – 01;18;12;27

Jeremy

And then when I hit you, you’re going to be like, Hey, why did you hit me? And then you’re going to respond back, right? That’s just.

 

01;18;12;28 – 01;18;21;01

Lara

Not sure. There were some people and I’ve spoken to some of them who said when I saw them beating a woman, you know, I put my hand and I try to stop them.

 

01;18;21;02 – 01;18;33;25

Jeremy

It’s a natural response. But see, mob mentality would be four or five guys behind you. Now get involved. But see, that didn’t happen on January 6th. They wanted all those people. They threw me on the wide shot.

 

01;18;33;28 – 01;18;35;01

Lara

They thought it would be worse.

 

 

 

 

01;18;35;01 – 01;18;39;15

Jeremy

They thought it would be worse. And that’s why their narrative was that it was worse, you know. // 01;19;57;27 – 01;20;24;00 // They’re having to counter stories that are coming out, the video that’s coming out, you know, even I mean, from what I understand, people are starting to now say, well, who’s this Jeremy Brown guy?

 

ONE THING IS CERTAIN. AFTER JANUARY 6, THE GOVERNMENT HAD JEREMY BROWN IN ITS SIGHTS.

 

LATER THAT YEAR, THEY WENT DOWN TO FLORIDA TO ARREST HIM. AND THAT’S WHEN THE FIREWORKS REALLY BEGAN.

 

[TEASE:]

 

00;51;13;26 – 00;51;17;10

Lara

So you believe that the grenades were planted?

 

00;51;17;12 – 00;51;17;27

Jeremy

Of course.
