According to Sund, House Democrats “knew” there was a big potential for violent riots. However, they were concerned about the “optics” of the situation, so decided to do nothing to stop it.
Sund revealed that there was lots of advanced warning for Pelosi and her fellows, adding the House has received six warnings about the potential attack. Sund also revealed the resources Capitol Police officers requested, and they definitely needed a stronger National Guard presence.
- Michael Waller’s testimony entered into the US Senate record. He attested that “agent provocateurs” had agitated the violent rots. Some even say the Capitol Police allowed protesters inside the building.
CBS News’ Catherine Herridge discussed the foreign influence in the roots of the pre-planned Capitol riots.
The House and Senate leadership did nothing. Pelosi and her Democrats knew about the riots and they were concerned about the “optics” of the event. “Classy.”
“I have been in policing for almost 30 years, the events I witnessed on January 6 were the worst attack on law enforcement in our democracy that I have seen in my entire career,” Sund said.
“I witnessed insurgents beating police officers with fists, pipes, sticks, bats, metal barricades, and flag poles,” he continued.
“These criminals came prepared for war. They came with their own radio system to coordinate the attack and climbing gear and other equipment to defeat the capitol’s security features,” Sund continued.
“I am sickened by what I witnessed that day,” he went on. “Our officers fought valiantly using batons, shields, chemical munitions and pepperball guns to hold back the attackers. Capitol Police and responding law enforcement agencies showed tremendous restraint by not using their firearms, which would have likely led to a more chaotic situation and a possible mass casualty incident. No civilian law enforcement agency to include the United States Capitol Police is trained or equipped to repel an insurrection of thousands of individuals focused on breaching and building at all costs.”
This testimony made people ask questions. How did protesters enter the Capitol building? It was so easy for them to get inside. There was an advanced warning after all. No one did a thing to stop this. yes, some of the plans were posted online on December 28th. People knew about this.
“Must have Tactical gear/ bullet proof vest, bring first aid kids and water. No firearms unless you are licensed to carry in D.C,” one advisery for a U.S. Against Racism banner said. It was such preparation that tipped off Antifa-supporting activist John Sullivan to infiltrate and agitate at the event.
“A clear lack of accurate and complete intelligence across several federal agencies contributed to this event and not poor planning by the United States Capitol Police,” he continued. “We rely on accurate information from our federal partners to help us develop effective security plans.”
“The intelligence that we based our planning on indicated that the January 6 protests were expected to be similar to the previous [peaceful] MAGA rallies in 2020, which drew tens of thousands of participants,” he said. “The assessment indicated that members of the Proud Boys, white supremacist groups and Antifa and other extremist groups were expected to participate in on January 6th and that it may be inclined to become violent.”
“As recent as Tuesday, January 5th, during a meeting I hosted with my executive team, the Capitol Police board and a dozen of the top law enforcement and military officials from DC,” he added. “No entity, including the FBI, provided any new intelligence regarding January 6. It should be also noted that the Secretary of Homeland Security did not issue an elevated or eminent alert in reference to the events at the United States Capitol on January 6th.”
“We properly planned for a mass demonstration with possible violence, what we got was a military-style coordinated assault on my officers and a violent takeover of the Capitol building,” Sund said.
“While my officers were fighting, my post was in the command center coordinating resources from numerous agencies around the national capitol region to provide critically needed support,” he said. “I was also briefing the two sergeant in-arms [of the U.S. House and Senate] and working on establishing accountability and priorities for the incoming resources. As Capitol Police and outside resources began to re-establish the security perimeter, I responded to the capitol building to personally evaluate the situation and brief the sergeant-at-arms and leadership.”
Will Democrats improve their connection with the Capitol Police?
“These issues must be addressed, through new training policies and procedures, even our best efforts were not enough to stop this unprecedented assault on the capital,” he added. “However, casting blame solely on the United States Capitol Police Leadership is not only misplaced, but it also minimizes what truly occurred that day.”
Americans know nothing about the House and Senate failing to address warnings.
“Former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund on Tuesday told lawmakers he did not receive a copy of an FBI report warning of violence that was issued the day before the attack on the Capitol,” the Hill reported. “The FBI issued a report from its Norfolk, Va., field office on Jan. 5 that detailed specific calls for violence on Jan. 6, including those that suggested protesters go to the Capitol ‘ready for war.’”
“I actually just in the last 24 hours was informed by the department that we actually had received that report,” Sund said in response to a question from ranking chair Sen. Amy Klobuchar.
The Washington Post cited Sund on the response to his warnings from House and Senate Sergeant At Arms:
House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving said he wasn’t comfortable with the “optics” of formally declaring an emergency ahead of the demonstration, Sund said. Meanwhile, Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger suggested that Sund should informally seek out his Guard contacts, asking them to “lean forward” and be on alert in case Capitol Police needed their help.
Nancy Pelosi is forming her 9/11 style commission to “solve” the situation. We know what you did…
