Outgoing Capitol Police chief says House, Senate security blocked Guard request

The outgoing chief of the Capitol Police said the House and Senate security officials thwarted his efforts to call in the National Guard. According to the WaPo, Steven Sund said his supervisors were reluctant to take formal steps to put the Guard on call and his request for help was rejected or delayed six times. Sund’s remarks were in contrast with those from officials in other branches of govt..

Would it really surprise anyone if certain officials wanted Trump supporters inside the Capitol building as an excuse to impeach the outgoing President?

Lets be honest. The extra presence wasn’t needed. If the authorities actually told them to leave, most of them would. Look at how they were just casually strolling around inside the building.

There should be a bipartisan committee set up immediately to hear all evidence. If antifa caused it put thst evidence up, if Trump incited it prove it. The people need the TRUTH.

As expected, things are more complicated than everyone initially thought and as usual, more information will come out over time. Apparently Occams razor doesn't apply. But has it ever with these situations?

Because it was a set up. I've seen the videos of an oregon house member opening the doors to let people in. I've seen the videos of house security ushering people inside. I've seen the videos of weapons being passed to the antifa insurgents thru the capital window.

Interesting how the government interferes with requests for aid and backup. Almost as if they have a habit of interfering with things.

If I was the Chief of Capitol Police I would say that too. But that doesn’t make it true of course. He is lying to save his own but, like so many others.

This was a Democrat operation to manufacture a pretext to classify 80 million Americans that voted for trump as domestic terrorists.

Trump supporters have spent the past couple of years critising anybody who has resigned been sacked and then critisized Trump. They have insisted the outgoing person has an axe to grind and is lieing. Then this bloke resigns and he's telling the truth and should be listened to. The hypocrisy.

Hey Alex casually strolling along? How about five people dead including one cop and how many others wounded. They were looking to hang pence and pelosi. Breaking down doors and glass doesn't look like strolling along.

This information should be properly vetted before the officer is made to resign. If he is truthful, the fault does not lie with him or his peers. It lies with the higher up officials who did nothing. The Maryland Governor says similar things and he wasn’t in the hot seat. He was trying to provide law enforcement and could not get responses from the Pompeo level.
