What the heck is this all about?
I think Trump’s peaceful patriots are owed an explanation ASAP about what was actually going on at the US Capitol on January 6th. We need an investigation not run by Nancy Pelosi.
The Blaze has this headline in case you missed it:
6 Capitol officers suspended for alleged role in Jan 6 rioting, 29 others under investigation
6 Capitol Police officers have been suspended with pay for their alleged role in the rioting on Jan. 6, and 29 other officers have been placed under investigation.
A department spokesperson told CNN Thursday that officers could face punishment for violating their policies during the rioting .
“Our Office of Professional Responsibility is investigating the actions of 35 police officers from that day. Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman has directed that any member of her department whose behavior is not in keeping with the Department’s Rules of Conduct will face appropriate discipline,” said John Stolnis.
Democrat Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio said that one of the suspended officers had taken a selfie with the rioters, while another had worn a “Make America Great Again” hat and helped direct them at the Capitol building.
Four protesters died at the Capitol rioting while one Capitol Police officer died and another two officers committed suicide in the days following the incident. Early reports indicated that the officer, Brian Sicknick, had been died from injuries he suffered from being hit by a fire extinguisher, but that account changed weeks later after more through investigation.
NPR on Pittman et al:
Former chief Steven Sund “ …told NPR he was rejected in his request for backup ahead of the Jan. 6th because of optics concerns.”
“Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and Rules committees announced plans for a February 23 joint oversight hearing to examine security failures.”
That should be must-watch TV. Mark your calendars—February 23rd!
