"interviewed four unnamed FBI officials familiar with the agency's probe into the insurrection "
How about you quote the whole thing:

According to Reuters, which interviewed four unnamed FBI officials familiar with the agency's probe into the insurrection, there is scant evidence to suggest that far-right groups, Donald Trump, or any of the former president's allies colluded to incite the unrest.
Then how about you go read the actual Reuters article take note of the very first paragraph (quoted below) and the bold type:

The FBI has found scant evidence that the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result, according to four current and former law enforcement officials.

IT does not indicate that those Law enforcement officials are from the FBI. If that where true, they wouldn't be playing a word game and would call them FBI officials. This is what happens when media outlets start using only one media source (The only media source) and fail to comprehend what is being said, and or put their own unsubstantiated spin on things to manipulate the weak minded (you) into believing something that has no legitimacy behind it .. There is no indication that these 4 unnamed law enforcement officials are from the FBI.

They're not gong to find the kind of evidence some people are thinking about. Nothing started until November 6th since none of them expected him to come up short. He went off and started trying crazy crap internally and it wasn't until he found out it wasn't going to be so easy that the started riling up the base. He was even planting stoolies in the Pentagon at that point hoping to do it himself. I'm not sure exactly when he called in the minions of buffoons with his 'gonna be wild' schpiel, but that's all the time they had to plan ... just a couple of weeks.

Did you look at the link from Reuters?

Exclusive: FBI finds scant evidence U.S. Capitol attack was coordinated - sources | Reuters

It references FBI officials AND law enforcement officals.

The FBI has found scant evidence that the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was the result of an organized plot to overturn the presidential election result, according to four current and former law enforcement officials.
Though federal officials have arrested more than 570 alleged participants, the FBI at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump, according to the sources, who have been either directly involved in or briefed regularly on the wide-ranging investigations.

Yep, I read the article at Reuters, why do you think I am calling you out on this bullshit? It does not once refer to FBI officials. Everything in that article is from the same 4 sources, which are unnamed Law Enforcement Officials.. You are more than welcome to show where the sources are from anyone else but those four unnamed Law enforcement officials.. When they do reference to what the FBI has investigated, said, etc, it is followed by: "the sources said" or "according to the sources. (I suggest you read the rest of the sentence you bold typed, specifically right after it says President Donald Trump) Again, in the very first paraphraph, it specifically states who their sources are.. NON are referenced to be FBI officials. You seriously need to learn to comprehend what is written and where the information in that article derived from, which is 100% from the same sources (those 4 unnamed Law Enforcement officials). NOT THE FBI!

4 sources? Well that's 3 more than what the typical liberal moron uses as proof. Trump and other people were not going around trying to organize some coup. Maybe Maxine Waters and other Democrats should be questioned since they keep demanding people to confront politicians?

Just like Trump-Russia, it is a nothing burger. So blame the morons that decided to storm into the Capitol.

Bravo! Great Response! /s

We have 4 Law enforcement officials with no indication they are part of the FBI, trying to report on the FBI's agency's investigation, you know, an agency they appear not to be a part of, otherwise they would have indicated so in the article. Which means we have 4 sources that have no legitimacy, equaling ZERO reliable sources, not 4, not 3, not 2, NOT FUCKING 1, but ZERO! Yet, you respond with this bullshit, demonstrating just how fucking dumb you are. Holly shit Dude! Man the fuck up! Try to have some integrity, admit you where wrong, and try to do so with honesty!

You're lying and you know it. Something you need to remind yourself is that the internet is forever. Everyone saw all the "Stop the steal" Trump supporters on social media demanding that the govt be overthrown in order to keep Trump in power. We saw prominent Republicans demand that martial law be imposed and/or that the military get involved to prevent the lawful peaceful transition of power. We saw Republican leaders push lawsuits expressly designed to encourage a majority Republican-appointed Supreme Court to ignore the Constitution. And finally, we saw Republican leaders encourage Trump supporters to storm the Capitol with the express intent of stopping Congress for its Constitutional duty of certifying the vote by any means necessary.
And all of this, from Trump's tweets to some Karen's FB posts, was meticulously recorded and remains available for viewing today.

There are many people still loyal to Trump within various government positions. Trump planted most of them before he left office. Naturally they will continue to push the big lie, believing that Trump will return. It is too bad that Biden couldn't just drain that entire swamp Trump left behind.

So are back to accepting unnamed sources as gospel?
Not only that, but there are no FBI officials, it's only Law Enforcement officials as sources (some of them former, meaning they are no longer a part of any law enforcement agency). Which tells me that NON of them are in the FBI, otherwise they would have said sources inside the FBI and not used a blanket term that covers ALL law enforcement agencies. He's to stupid to grasp that they worded it in a way, to manipulate the weak minded, and mind fucked him into believing that the information came from FBI sources directly when it's obvious that is not true.

The Big Lie guys are still raking it in.

Corporations and Unions Are Bankrolling the Sedition Caucus Again – Mother Jones

According to my search results, the top five PACs funding the sedition caucus includes three defense contractors (General Dynamics, Lockheed and Boeing), a credit union trade association, and a beef industry trade association. The top five recipients include Reps. Steve Scalise, the minority whip, and Kevin McCarthy, the minority leader), and three ranking members of committees that control some type of defense contracts or agricultural policy.

Trump demanding DOJ make some announcement the election was corrupt and he'll do the rest sounds like a coup attempt to me.

He started before that. Telegraphing ahead of time, that if he did not win, it will be because of fraud.

So Ron Johnson, champion of "stop the steal," admits in two private conversations that Biden won his home state of Wisconsin. In the first, with a republican official in Wisconsin who broke with Johnson over stop the steal, he tells the other guy "of course Biden won, but 1.5 million people voted for Trump and I don't want to piss them off." So Johnson calls the guys a liar and "weasel."
But then he says the same thing in a private conversation with a liberal activist, and the activist taped the conversation LOL.
