The coverup continues……
It looks like there were a lot of moving pieces which made up the events of January 6th, and according to this new report they could have been dealt with.
We all know that nothing got dealt with though since the D.C. police were ordered to stand down.
I wonder who it is exactly who gave the order?
The specific name does not appear in the report which raises suspicion. Reports like this come out all the time and they’re usually very detailed.
Is the report trying to protect a certain high profile person in power?
Read on and decide what you think:
The now-former officials responsible for Capitol security on Jan. 6 testified Tuesday that they did not receive an FBI threat report warning that extremists were planning to travel to Washington to commit violence and "war."
The testimony by former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, former House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving, and former Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger came during the first in a series of congressional oversight hearings that will examine the security and law enforcement failures that led to the Jan. 6 insurrection.
The New York Post had more details:
The report quotes an Army official telling then-Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund that “we don’t like the optics of the National Guard standing in a line at the Capitol” even after the unruly crowd had broken down doors and shattered windows to enter the federal building.
Law enforcement agents were quickly overwhelmed by the crowd, because of serious failures in training and equipment. “When the crowd became unruly, the C.D.U. platoon attempted to access the bus to distribute the shields but were unable because the door was locked.” It “was consequently required to respond to the crowd without the protection of their riot shields,” the report says, according to the Times.
The report found that some of the equipment was more than 20 years old and had never been replaced, tear gas weapons that could have been used to repel the crowd were so old that agents refused to fire them, and riot shields that had been improperly stored shattered as officers fought with the mob.
