The New York Times has just confirmed what many of us have already figured out.
In a new report, the New York Times stated that Capitol Police were told to ‘stand down’ during the January 6th riot at the Capitol.
According to a 104-page document obtained by investigators, leaders were warned of the ‘pre-planned violence but instead of being pro-active officers were just told to stand down and allow the riot to happen. And the question remains, who made the call?
The report also reveals that congress was even warned about the pre-planned attack according to now-resigned Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund.
Do you remember all those videos, that showed police officers just simply letting people inside of the Capitol? I do, and now we know that the events that occurred on January 6th were pre-planned to demonize Trump supporters.
Here’s a portion of the New York Times report:
The Capitol Police had clearer advance warnings about the Jan. 6 attack than were previously known, including the potential for violence in which “Congress itself is the target.” But officers were instructed by their leaders not to use their most aggressive tactics to hold off the mob, according to a scathing new report by the agency’s internal investigator.
In a 104-page document, the inspector general, Michael A. Bolton, criticized the way the Capitol Police prepared for and responded to the mob violence on Jan. 6. The report was reviewed by The New York Times and will be the subject of a Capitol Hill hearing on Thursday.
Mr. Bolton found that the agency’s leaders failed to adequately prepare despite explicit warnings that pro-Trump extremists posed a threat to law enforcement and civilians and that the police used defective protective equipment. He also found that the leaders ordered their Civil Disturbance Unit to refrain from using its most powerful crowd-control tools — like stun grenades — to put down the onslaught.
The report offers the most devastating account to date of the lapses and miscalculations around the most violent attack on the Capitol in two centuries.
A couple of months ago the mainstream media thought the idea that the Capitol Police let protestors into the Capitol Building was a “conspiracy theory” but now they’re reporting it as truth 3 months too late.
