Unter Mithilfe von Geheimdienstmitarbeitern

Das FBI soll den »Sturm auf das Kapitol« initiiert haben

Der ominöse Sturm auf das Kapitol in Washinton am 6. Januar des Jahres soll mutmaßlich vom FBI initiiert worden sein. Diese These steht schon seit langem im Raum. Nun gibt es neue Belege, die beweisen sollen, dass Geheimdienstmitarbeiter maßgeblich für die Aktion verantwortlich sind.

Die Hintergründe und Zusammenhänge der Erstürmung des Kapitols in Washington am 6. Januar 2021 sind noch immer nicht aufgeklärt. Es gibt nach wie vor jede Menge offener Fragen, die offensichtlich aber nicht beantwortet werden sollen, sagte dazu Fox-News-Moderator Tucker Carlson gestern Abend in seinem Programm. »Warum verhindert die Biden-Administration, dass wir wissen, was passiert ist? Warum versteckt die Regierung am 6. Januar immer noch mehr als 10.000 Stunden Überwachungsmaterial aus der US-Hauptstadt? Was könnte der Grund dafür sein?« fragt er.

Tucker Carlson spricht die Tatsache an, dass mehrere der Personen, die den Ermittlungen zufolge eine führende Rolle bei den Krawallen gespielt haben, nicht strafrechtlich verfolgt wurden – und dass ihre Identität geheim gehalten wurde. Er bezieht sich auf eine umfangreiche Überprüfung von Revolver News über Personen, die bisher der Strafverfolgung entgangen sind.

Eine Überprüfung zeige, so Carlson, dass viele der Teilnehmer des Aufstands, die der Strafverfolgung entgangen sind, deutlich aggressiver und treibender gewesen zu sein scheinen als die tatsächlich strafrechtlich verfolgten Personen. »Wir wissen, dass die Regierung die Identität vieler Polizeibeamter verbirgt, die am 6. Januar im Kapitol anwesend waren, nicht nur des Beamten, der Ashli ​​Babbitt getötet hat. Laut einem regierungseigenen Gerichtsdokument haben diese Strafverfolgungsbeamten an den Ausschreitungen teilgenommen - manchmal auf gewalttätige Weise.«

Und weiter: »Wir wissen, dass die Regierung die meisten Menschen, die am 6. Januar im Kapitol anwesend waren, drakonisch gejagt hat. Ein landesweites Schleppnetznetz wurde genutzt, um sie zu finden – und viele von ihnen befinden sich noch immer in Einzelhaft. Aber seltsamerweise wurden einige der Schlüsselpersonen, die am 6. Januar teilgenommen haben, nicht strafrechtlich verfolgt.«

Tucker Carlson gibt an, dass »potenziell jede einzelne« Person, die nicht strafrechtlich verfolgt wurde, ein FBI-Operator sein kann. Aus den Dokumenten geht unter anderem hervor, dass einer derjenigen, die der Strafverfolgung entgangen sind, namens »Person 2«, zusammen mit Thomas Caldwell, einem 65-jährigen Mitglied der Organisation Oath Keepers, am »Sturm auf die Barrikaden« des Kapitols beteiligt war. Caldwell war auch mitgeteilt worden, dass eine »schnelle Eingreiftruppe«, angeführt von einer »Person 3«, an dem Sturm teilnehmen würde.

Carlson: »Jetzt kommen wir zum interessanten Teil. Person 2 und Person 3 waren die Organisatoren des Aufstands. Der Staat weiß, wer sie sind, aber der Staat hat sie nicht verfolgt. Warum ist das so? Du weißt, warum. Sie arbeiteten mit ziemlicher Sicherheit für das FBI«, sagt Tucker Carlson. Laut der Überprüfung von Revolver News zeigt der Fall gegen Mitglieder von Oath Keepers, dass es über 20 unprovozierte sogenannte Mitverschwörer im Sturm gibt. Trotz der Tatsache, dass sie im Prinzip die gleichen Taten begangen haben, zum Teil viel schwerwiegendere, wie die Angeklagten, sind sie so auf mysteriöse Weise einer strafrechtlichen Verfolgung entgangen.

Und wer hat den ,,Sturm auf den Reichstag''31.08.2020 in Berlin inszeniert ??? Wie sich die Bilder gleichen.
Ja wie war denn das mit dem Reichstagsbrand ... wurde die Geschichte schon neu erfunden ... von irgendwelchen ,,Historikern'' ...was bekommt man heute im Geschichtsunterricht serviert ???

Das und so sind diese sogenannten Demokraten. In Wahrheit Linke/Sozialisten/Kommunisten - ganz gleich, wie man sie bezeichnen mag - die wie immer hinterhältig, heimtückisch und gefährlich agieren! Die schrecken auch nicht vor Morden zurück, um ihre Ziele erreichen zu können und gehen über Leichen, betrügen, belügen und intrigieren, was das Zeug hält. Und das FBI ist mit von dieser Partie. Warum auch nicht? Es ist ja eine staatliche Institution, in der offenbar üble Burschen tätig sind.
Auch Hitler war so einer, ein übler NationalSOZIALIST ohne Skrupel, um an die Macht zu kommen und vor allem, um an der Macht zu bleiben. Und die dumme Masse - dank Goebbels ausgefeilter psychologischer Manipulation - sind ihm gefolgt und haben ihn begeistert gefeiert. So, wie das bei der Volksmasse auch heute wieder ist, die nicht kapiert, wohin Merkel sie führt. Nämlich ebenso ins Elend wie das Hitler gemacht hat. Nur führt Merkel einen Krieg, einen anders gearteten, gegen das EIGENE Volk! DAS ist der Unterschied. Das Ergebnis wird das gleiche sein.
Und in den USA geschieht nun durch die ebenso rücksichtslosen und volksverachtenden Linken Ähnliches. Demokratie und Freiheit für die Völker - offenbar weltweit - adé!

Die Demo war doch offiziell angemeldet und dann haben sie nur ein paar Hansel zur Verteidigung des Kapitols abgestellt, obwohl man genau wußte, daß sich da auch Aufrührer darunter mischen konnten, was dann ja auch geschehen ist und das alles sieht ganz nach Choreographie aus um den Republikanern und insbesondere Trump zu schaden und man kann ihm nur den Vorwurf machen, daß er an so eine Falle nicht gedacht hat und die Nationalgarde aufmarschieren ließ, dann wäre die Provokation erst garnicht geschehen und die Obergauner haben ihr Ziel erreicht und daraus die richtige Story gemacht, was ihnen dann auch gelungen ist.

Ähnliches ist ja auch vor dem Reichstag geschehen, wo ebenfalls nur 3 Männeken die Freiheit verteidigt haben und fast könnte man meinen die Angelegenheit vor dem Kapitol wurde eins zu eins umgesetzt und das war äußerst werbewirksam für die Demokraten, wie hier in Deutschland wo man die Nazis wieder als Zielscheibe installiert hat um in die Rolle der Märtyrer schlüpfen zu können, bei den bösen von Rechts, die lediglich einen anderen Weg eingeschlagen haben und alle ohne jegliche Beschädigung abgelaufen ist, was bei einem Sturm auf das Objekt, dann völlig anders ausgesehen hätte.

Sehr geehrte Redaktion!
Der folgende Text, der die Ereignisse um das Kapitol am 6. Januar 2021 aus der Sicht des seinerzeit amtierenden Polizeichefs Steven A. Sund offenlegt, ist zu Ihrer Information, nicht zu Veröffentlichung in diesem Forum bestimmt.

Written Testimony of USCP Former Chief of Police Steven A. Sund before the Senate
Committee on Rules and Administration and the Senate Homeland Security and
Government Affairs Committee
Tuesday, February 23, 2021
Chairwoman Klobuchar, Ranking Member Blunt, Chairman Peters, and Ranking Member
Portman. Thank you for allowing me to testify regarding the attack on the United States Capitol
that occurred on January 6, 2021, during the Joint Session of Congress.

I would first like to say that the time that I spent with the United States Capitol Police was the
best, most rewarding four years of my career. The United States Capitol Police has an
outstanding reputation among law enforcement across the country, and for good reason. The
officers and employees of the USCP work tirelessly and selflessly every day to protect the
Members, staff, and visitors at the United States Capitol. I could not be prouder to have been a
part of this team, especially on January 6, 2021.

I have been in law enforcement for almost 30 years, and in that time I have been involved in a
number of critical incidents, and responded to a number of horrific scenes. The events on
January 6, 2021, constituted the worst attack on law enforcement that I have seen in my entire
career. This was an attack that we are learning
was pre-planned, and involved participants from
a number of states who came well equipped, coordinated, and prepared to carry out a violent
insurrection at the United States Capitol.
I witnessed insurgents beating police officers with
fists, pipes, sticks, bats, metal barricades, and flag poles. These criminals came prepared for war.
They came with weapons, chemical munitions and explosives. They came with shields, ballistic
protection, and tactical gear. They came with their own radio system to coordinate the attack, as
well as climbing gear and other equipment to defeat the Capitol’s security features.
The breach of the United States Capitol was not the result of poor planning or failure to contain a
demonstration gone wrong. No single civilian law enforcement agency – and certainly not the
USCP – is trained and equipped to repel, without significant military or other law enforcement
assistance, an insurrection of thousands of armed, violent, and coordinated individuals focused
on breaching a building at all costs. Without the intelligence to properly prepare, the USCP was
significantly outnumbered and left to defend the Capitol against an extremely violent mob. The
officers from the USCP and our partner agencies fought valiantly that day against tremendous
odds. I am extremely proud of these officers for their heroic response and also for their restraint
in the application of lethal force. While, tragically, there were causalities on this day, the loss of
life could have been far worse if it had not been for the professionalism and restraint shown by
the officers that day.
There has been much conflicting information presented by various officials and the media
regarding the preparations for and actions taken at the Capitol that day, and I would like to set
the record straight from my perspective. Contrary to some of the reporting, the USCP had an
effective plan in place to handle the First Amendment demonstrations and possible pockets of
violence that were anticipated for January 6, based upon the available intelligence. The United
States Capitol Police, just like most law enforcement agencies, is a consumer of the information
provided by the intelligence community. The USCP uses this information, as well as our own
information and research to develop plans for events and demonstrations. Thus, the plans that we
developed for the Joint Session of Congress and the associated demonstrations expected that day
were based upon all of the available information and intelligence that we had prior to the event,
as well as the experience we had handling other similar events.
After the election on November 3, 2020, there were other large protests planned by pro-Trump
supporters: one on November 14 (MAGA I) and one on December 12 (MAGA II), both of which
were located at the Supreme Court building and adjacent Capitol grounds, and involved
thousands of people. We handled both of those events successfully, utilizing an action plan that
was based on intelligence assessments developed by us and our partner agencies. The USCP
Intelligence and Inter-Agency Coordination Division (IICD) prepared intelligence assessments
for both of the MAGA I and MAGA II events that indicated that various extremist groups were
expected to attend the events and that there was a likelihood of violence. Based on the
intelligence, the action plan included: coordination with our law enforcement partners,
development of a staffing and Civil Disturbance Unit (CDU) plan, coordination with the
Congressional community, enhanced protective actions for Members of Congress, and the
deployment of physical crowd management devices that consisted of steel crowd control
barriers. During those two protests, there was a limited amount of violence and/or injuries to
officers, and a limited number of arrests.
As we prepared for the third protest, we understood that the focus of the protests would be the
Capitol itself, and not the Supreme Court as in the previous two demonstrations, and that we
could expect the crowd to be somewhat different in size and risk. As is standard practice, our
IICD hosted a number of internal briefings and published intelligence assessments of the event,
the most recent being published on January 3, 2021, three days before the event. The IICD
reports include input from internal U.S. Capitol Police intelligence officials, such as our Director
of Intelligence John Donahue, who is an expert in right-wing extremism, as well as information
provided by our partner agencies such as the FBI, U.S. Secret Service, Department of Homeland
Security, and the D.C. Metropolitan Police.
As previously mentioned, the IICD intelligence assessment indicated that the January 6th
protests/rallies were “expected to be similar to the previous Million MAGA March rallies in
November and December 2020, which drew tens of thousands of participants.” The assessment
indicated that members of the Proud Boys, white supremacist groups, Antifa, and other extremist
groups were expected to participate in the January 6th event and that they may be inclined to
become violent. This was very similar to the intelligence assessment of the December 12, 2020,
MAGA II event. In addition, on Monday, January 4, 2021, the USCP IICD published the Daily
Intelligence Report which provided an assessment of all of the groups expected to demonstrate
on January 6, 2021. The IICD Daily Intelligence Report assessed “the level of probability of acts
of civil disobedience/arrests occurring based on current intelligence information,” as “Remote”
to “Improbable” for all of the groups expected to demonstrate on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. In
addition, the Daily Intelligence report indicated that “The Secretary of Homeland Security has
not issued an elevated or imminent alert at this time....”
At no time during the previous MAGA I or MAGA II events did the crowd attempt to storm or
attack the Supreme Court building,
or the adjacent Capitol buildin
g, and based upon all available
intelligence, nothing of that sort was expected to happen on January 6. The USCP has
successfully managed numerous large-scale protests where demonstrators have conducted illegal
(based on location) and contentious demonstrations on the Capitol grounds and even on its steps.
Based upon our experience with the prior post-election demonstrations, our ongoing intelligence
assessment and briefings, and the input from our law enforcement partners over the course of
many weeks, we developed and implemented a security plan for the January 6 Joint Session of
Congress. The USCP implemented a number of enhancements to our planning for January 6,
2021, based on the intelligence that we had.
In preparation for the Joint Session of Congress, I directed that the Department be placed into an
“all hands on deck” status, meaning every available sworn employee with police powers would
be working. We activated the largest number of CDU platoons possible while still supporting the
Joint Session of Congress. This allowed for the activation of approximately seven CDU platoons
(approximately 250 officers), with approximately four platoons being available in “hard” gear --
helmets, protective clothing, and shields. While limited by budgetary and training restraints
imposed on USCP, the planned number of CDU officers had always sufficed for large
demonstrations on Capitol Hill prior to January 6th. In addition, we activated civilian support
for January 6 to include enhanced access to the property management division, in the event
officers needed replacement uniforms or equipment, and vehicle services.
During my time as the Chief, I had directed enhancements to the protective equipment being
issued to our sworn employees. In 2020, I directed the procurement of riot helmets for all of the
sworn members of the Department. Prior to this time, riot helmets were only issued to members
assigned to the Department’s Civil Disturbance Units (CD). The delivery of the helmets from
the manufacturer had been delayed over the past several months due to the effects of COVID-19,
but we had been pushing for delivery by the Inauguration. As helmets became available, we
pushed for their expedited delivery due to the upcoming demonstration and approximately 104 of
the helmets were delivered on Monday, January 4. We also developed contingency plans in the
event that we had armed individuals in the crowd. In addition, we coordinated coverage for the
event with the District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Service. I directed that
additional Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC) kits be available in the field if needed. TCCC
is specialized training and equipment that prepares officers in the field to implement emergency
life-saving care to stop victims from bleeding to death as the result of a gunshot wound or injury.
During my time with the USCP, I have authorized officers to carry the TCCC kits and for all new
recruits to be trained in TCCC emergency medical care.
On January 2, 2021, I contacted MPD Chief Robert Contee to discuss support if necessary for
January 6th. On the morning of January 6th, MPD Assistant Chief
Jeffery C
arroll and I
exchanged information regarding our designated CDU Incident Command (IC). This was done
in an effort to facilitate immediate command and control of assets if requested. As a result of this
advanced coordination, MPD had pre-staged significant CDU resources on the north side of the
Capitol.
Well before the planned demonstration, I worked with USCP Assistant Chief Thomas, Assistant
Chief Pittm
an, and her Security Services Bureau to develop an expanded perimeter barrier plan.
The expanded perimeter was based on the concern for First Amendment activity focused on the
Capitol and the large number of people expected. Both the House and Senate Sergeants at Arms
approved the expanded perimeter plan. It was the heightened tension related to the certificati
on
of the vote, and the expanded perimeter that made me believe that National Guard assistance
might be necessary.
In support of Member security, we also worked with the local airport authorities to enhance
coverage at the airports utilizing both local law enforcement and the USCP. We also worked
with the Department of Transportation to enhance awareness of Members utilizing commercial
air carriers. In addition, we developed contingency plans, in coordination with the Sergeants at
Arms, to assist Members off-campus, who either experience emergency situations or difficulty
reaching the Capitol complex.
On Monday, January 4, I approached the two Sergeants at Arms to request the assistance of the
National Guard, as I had no authority to do so without an Emergency Declaration by the Capitol
Police Board (CPB). My regular interactions with the CPB, outside of our monthly meetings
regarding law enforcement matters, were conducted with the House and Senate Sergeant at
Arms, the two members of the CPB who have law enforcement experience. I first spoke with the
House Sergeant at Arms to request the National Guard. Mr. Irving stated that he was concerned
about the “optics” of having National Guard present and didn’t feel that the intelligence
supported it. He referred me to the Senate Sergeant at Arms (who is currently the Chair of the
CPB) to get his thoughts on the request. I then spoke to Mr. Stenger and again requested the
National Guard. Instead of approving the use of the National Guard, however, Mr. Stenger
suggested I ask them how quickly we could get support if needed and to “lean forward” in case
we had to request assistance on January 6.
At Mr. Stenger’s direction, I called General William Walker, commanding officer of the D.C.
National Guard. I advised that I had not received CPB approval, but wanted to know how many
National Guard he could provide and how fast could he provide them if they were needed on
Capitol Hill on January 6. He advised that he could repurpose nearby National Guard and have
them to me fairly quickly, once approved. I asked General Walker to be prepared in the event
that we requested them.
On Tuesday, January 5, I hosted a virtual meeting with my Executive Team, all three principals
of the Capitol Police Board, and a dozen of the top law enforcement and military officials from
D.C., including the FBI, the U.S. Secret Service, and the National Guard. This meeting focused
on both the January 6 event, and the upcoming Presidential Inauguration on January 20. During
the meeting, no entity, including the FBI, provided any intelligence indicating that there would
be a coordinated violent attack on the United States Capitol by thousands of well- equipped
armed insurrectionists. At no time did the Department of Homeland Security issue a threat
advisory bulletin in reference to violent extremists planning a coordinated, violent attack on the
U.S. Capitol. It should also be noted that the U.S. Secret Service planned to and did escort the
Vice President of the United States to the Capitol on January 6, which it obviously would not
have done if it believed there to be a threat of a violent insurrection at the Capitol building and
on its grounds.
In the days leading up to January 6, we briefed a number of Members of Congress who had
requested an advance briefing on our security plan and the permitted demonstration activity
scheduled for January 6, 2021. The members that were briefed in advance include: Chairman
Blunt, Chairperson Lofgren, Chairman Ryan, and Representative Waters. We informed these
members of the expectation of protests, current permitted First Amendment activity on Capitol
grounds, our response planning efforts and established perimeter, as well as enhanced Member
security initiatives such as increased checks on residences and the ability of the USCP to respond
off Capitol grounds to assist Members safely getting to the Capitol if needed.
Contrary to some
allegations made to the media, I did not at any time misrepresent facts to Members. I provided
an accurate reporting of our intelligence and threat assessment at the time. In addition, on
January 5, 2021, at 11:48 a.m., I sent an email to the four committees with oversight of the USCP
providing them with an overview of the expected events for January 5 and 6, and our
coordination with the House and Senate Sergeant at Arms.
Lastly, in preparation for the event I sent an email to the USCP Assistant Chiefs and Deputy
Chiefs on the evening of Tuesday, January 5, directing them to ensure that all roll calls and
officers were fully briefed on what to expect during their shifts -- a long day, large groups, and
clashes that could possibly include violence.
On Wednesday, January 6, at approximately 7:15 a.m., as I was driving into work, I called MPD
Inspector Robert Glover to inquire about the crowds he was seeing for the event, which was
beginning at the Ellipse. Inspector Glover stated that there were already lines to get into the
event, but that the crowd was compliant and he did not observe any concerning issues. I then
checked in at the USCP Command Center where I would be for the event. I arrived at the
Command Center, where I remained to monitor the activity on the National Mall and the Ellipse.
I sat at the center console with Assistant Chiefs Pittman and Thomas nearby.
We were monitoring the
actions and demeanor of the crowd, which at the time did not raise any
concerns, when we received word at 12:52 p.m. that a pipe bomb had been located at the
Republican National Committee Headquarters,
immediately adjacent to Capitol Grounds. We
responded immediately to coordinate and send resources to the scene, including a number of
officers, officials, and a bomb squad. We also dispatched resources to look for other explosive
devices, suspects, and vehicles. At almost the exactly same time, we observed a large group of
individuals approaching the West Front of the Capitol.
When the group arrived at the perimeter, they did not act like any group of protestors I had ever
seen. Unlike other heated protests, these protesters did not simply congregate to angrily voice
their grievances. As soon as this group arrived at our perimeter, they immediately began to fight
violently with the officers and to tear apart the steel crowd control barriers, using them to assault
the officers. It was immediately clear that their primary goal was to defeat our perimeter as
quickly as possible and to get past the police line. This mob was like nothing I have seen in my
law enforcement career. The group consisted of thousands of well-coordinated, well-equipped
violent criminals. They had weapons, chemical munitions, protective equipment, explosives, and
climbing gear. A number of them were wearing radio ear pieces indicating a high level of
coordination.
Given these factors, it was clear to me at 12:50 p.m. that the situation was deteriorating rapidly. I
called MPD and requested assistance and they responded immediately. I also requested
assistance from the U.S. Secret Service Uniformed Division and other law enforcement agencies.
I notified the two Sergeant at Arms by 1:09 p.m. that I urgently needed support and asked them
to declare a State of Emergency and authorize the National Guard. I was advised by Mr. Irving
that he needed to run it up the chain of command. I continued to follow up with Mr. Irving, who
was with Mr. Stenger at the time, and he advised that he was waiting to hear back from
congressional leadership, but expected authorization at any moment.
At approximately1:50p.m., not yet having authorization from CPB, and noting the extreme
urgency of the situation, I notified General William Walker that I should have approval shortly
and that we had an urgent request for the National Guard. At 2:10 p.m., I received notification
from Mr. Irving that the CPB authorized me to request the National Guard. However, as
explained below, I soon learned that our request would also need to be approved by the
Department of Defense.
Meanwhile, at approximately 1:50 p.m., USCP resources dispatched to look for other possible
explosives located another pipe bomb at the Democratic National Committee headquarters, as
well as a vehicle with explosives and a weapon, all within close proximity of the Capitol
Grounds. As a result of these explosive devices, extensive USCP resources were dispatched to
the scenes, and two congressional office buildings had to be evacuated. I believe all of this was
part of a coordinated plan related to the attack on the Capitol.
At 1:51 p.m., I activated the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments Mutual Aid
Agreement, requesting assistance from law enforcement agencies from the National Capital
Region (NCR). As a result of this request for law enforcement assistance, we had over 1,700
officers from 18 law enforcement agencies respond to assist the USCP. I worked closely with
Assistant Chief Thomas and Deputy Chief Pickett to establish resource management to account
for and deploy the officers from the responding agencies in the most effective and efficient
manner.
We also established priorities for the responding officers, which included: (1) securing the
perimeter and foundation of the Capitol; and (2) assisting the USCP in removing unauthorized
persons from the Capitol and conducting a top to bottom sweep of the building to ensure no
unauthorized persons, or hazardous devices remained in the building. These goals were
implemented as quickly as was possible in order to facilitate the safe and expeditious return of
the Members of Congress to complete their certification of the electoral votes.
In the Command Center, I could see that the USCP and MPD officers were fighting with all they
had to protect the Capitol building. I saw officers hit with pipes, wooden sticks, flag poles, and
sprayed with mace and bear spray, all while trying to defend themselves against projectiles being
directed at them. The mob was violently and ruthlessly attacking law enforcement officers in an
effort to breach their lines. The officers fought courageously against the violent attackers for
over an hour before any individuals in the mob were able to breach the Capitol Building. This is
an important point to emphasize because some media reporting has indicated that the insurgents
were able to breach the building within minutes of breaking though our perimeter. This was not
the case at all. The USCP and MPD battled with the violent mob for over an hour before anyone
in the group was able to breach the building. In fact, at some entrances to the Capitol, such as
the lower west terrace entrance, law enforcement fought with the mob for hours to prevent them
from accessing the building.
As the crowd was attempting to breach the building, our Dignitary Protection Division teams
prepared to evacuate congressional leadership. USCP assigned to the House and Senate
Chambers, secured the two locations. As the crowds breached the building, USCP attempted to
secure the hallways and prevent the mob from advancing further into the building. The USCP
initiated evacuations of the two Chambers and USCP officers began to move Members of
Congress to safe locations.
At approximately 2:28 p.m., I learned that in order to get authorization for National Guard
support, the Pentagon needed to approve the request. I was therefore asked to participate in a
conference call with Dr. Chris Rodriguez, D.C. Homeland Security and Emergency Management
Agency; Chief Robert Contee, Metropolitan Police; General William Walker, D.C. National
Guard; and Lt. General Walter Piatt, the Director of Army Staff. During the call I again made an
urgent request for immediate National Guard support. I explained that the National Guard was
needed to shore up our perimeter to help secure the Capitol. Lt. General Walter Piatt stated, "I
don't like the visual of the National Guard standing a line with the Capitol in the background. I
would much rather relieve USCP officers from other posts so they can handle the protestors." I
urgently advised that this was not an option and that I did not have officers to swap with National
Guard and that I needed assistance immediately. Lt. General Piatt stated that he was preparing to
brief the Secretary of the Army and that his recommendation would be not to support the request.
Chief Contee then stated, "So you are denying the request from the Capitol Police." Chief
Contee then asked me, "Steve, are you requesting National Guard assistance?" to which I stated,
"Yes, I need immediate assistance with National Guard at the Capitol, I do not have the option to
swap out officers on check points." Lt. General Piatt then indicated that he was going to run the
request up the chain of command at the Pentagon.
Almost two hours later, we had still not received authorization from the Pentagon to activate the
National Guard. Mr. Stenger offered to have Senator McConnell call the Secretary of the Army
to expedite the request. I agreed that this would be a good idea. I followed up approximately 20
minutes later to check on the call and express the need for leadership to call to assist in
expediting the request. The first 150 members of the National Guard were not sworn in on
Capitol grounds until 5:40 p.m., four and a half hours after I first requested them and three and a
half hours after my request was approved by the Capitol Police Board.
By late afternoon we were able to re-establish our perimeter with the assistance of MPD and the
responding law enforcement agencies. We then methodically cleared the building, establishing
the security of both the building and the House and Senate chambers. At 5:36 p.m., I briefed
Vice President Pence on the current security posture, after which he initiated a call with Speaker
Pelosi, and I advised both that the Chambers could be safely re-occupied by 7:30 p.m. I also
participated in a conference call at approximately 6:25 p.m. with Congressional leadership that
included Speaker Pelosi, Senator Schumer, Senator McConnell, and Representative Clyburn.
During that call I briefed the group on the current security posture of the Capitol and the ability
of the House and the Senate to reconvene in their respective chambers and complete the
certification of the Electoral College votes with the Vice President. Senate leadership decided to
reconvene at 8:00 p.m. and House leadership at 9:00 p.m.
While the violent attack that took place was unspeakable, and those responsible for this violent
insurrection should be held accountable, I am proud of the men and women of the U.S. Capitol
Police, the vast majority of whom fought valiantly and risked their lives to protect Members of
Congress, their staff, and the Capitol building. B
ecause of their bravery and professionalism in
the face of this attack, USCP officers prevented the mob’s actions from resulting in more
bloodshed, and carried out their mission to protect the Members of Congress and the legislative
process. Contrary to what others have said, the USCP did not fail. There are many heroic stories
of USCP officers that day that helped to ensure the safety of the Members of Congress, including
two officers who lost their lives. Democracy prevailed on January 6, 2021, in large part because
of the courageous actions of the United States Capitol Police.
Although we were successful in accomplishing our mission on January 6, 2021, and no Members
were injured and the legislative process was able to continue just a few hours later, Congress and
the USCP must nevertheless look at this event and identify area for improvement and systems
that broke down or failed. Some of the areas that need to be reviewed, which I would have
reviewed had I remained in my position as Chief, include:
Intelligence:
Since the incident on January 6, 2021, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
has indicated that the attack that occurred was pre-planned, involved participants from a number
of states, who came well equipped, coordinated, and prepared to carry out a violent insurrection
of the United States Capitol. Although it appears that there were numerous participants from
multiple states planning this attack, the entire intelligence community (IC) seems to have missed
it. It is essential to understand that most law enforcement agencies in the United States, to
include the USCP, are consumers of the intelligence provided by the IC. We rely on the
information to be accurate and complete. The IC needs to reevaluate the intelligence collection
requirements concerning domestic extremism and how this pertains to the law enforcement
community they serve. In addition, the IC once again needs to evaluate how raw intelligence is
being analyzed and translated into a finished product, or actionable intelligence for the numerous
law enforcement agencies across the county.
Event planning, Directives, Policies and Procedures:
The review being conducted by the
Office of the Inspector General (OIG) for the USCP, as well as the internal after-action review
(AAR) being developed by the USCP, should provide an in-depth review of the adherence to past
event planning practices and procedures to ensure the same level of planning was applied to the
January 6, 2021, Joint Session of Congress. This should include the development and briefing of
a Plan of Action approved by the Assistant Chief for Uniformed Operation. The plan established
by the Capitol Division for Joint Session of Congress needs to be reviewed, as does the
evacuation plan that should have been developed by DPD. The adherence to staffing mandates
issued by the Chief of Police for the January 6th event needs to be evaluated. The
implementation of the CDU plan developed by the Operational Support Bureau should be
evaluated to determine if there were any factors that impacted their ability to use various less
lethal options, affected their deployment strategy, or impacted the preparedness of the “Hard”
CDU Platoons. In addition, any officials or officers who violated policies or directives, or even
their oath, need to be held accountable. The
USCP needs more unilateral authority to implement
its security planning and the ability to call in National Guard support when needed.
Incident Command:
It has been reported that during this incident, officers were not getting
directions over the radio. For Command and Control of assets, the USCP works from the
National Incident Management System (NIMS). NIMS includes the designation of an Incident
Commander (IC) for each geographically located event or incident. This is utilized to ensure that
the officials in command of designated areas have knowledge, authority, and control of the
resources assigned to their areas of responsibility. Without this system, which limits the amount
of people on the radio at a given time, it would be confusing to officers who was providing
direction. On January 6, 2021, there was a designated IC for the demonstrations and First
Amendment activity expected on the exterior of the Capitol, and a designated IC for the Capitol
Building, to include the Joint Session. Each IC had a designated radio channel to coordinate
their resources. These two ICs would have been the officials responsible for ensuring that proper
directions were being provided to the officers in the field. The review being conducted by the
OIG and the internal AAR being conducted by the USCP, should evaluate the IC system to
determine how effectively it was implemented by the Commander of the Capitol Division and if
this impacted other activities, such as communications with the officers and the evacuation of the
Members, staff and VIPs.
Physical Security for the Congressional Buildings and Campus:
A number of USCP officers
have expressed concern over what will happen to the security of the United States Capitol
Grounds (USCG) when the fence comes down and the National Guard leaves. While I believe
that the intelligence community has increased the intelligence aperture regarding the perpetrators
of this incident, more needs to be done to address the physical security failures faced on January
6, 2021. Congress and the USCP must review current physical security standards in place for
federal buildings, such as those provided by the Interagency Security Committee and their
application to the Legislative Branch, as well as reviewing past GAO reports, to update the
current standards being applied to congressional buildings and offices. I believe a number of
steps can be taken and physical security enhancements can be implemented to significantly
enhance the security of the building while maintaining the feel of an “open campus.” I would be
willing to discuss this topic more in a closed session.
Training and Equipment for USCP Officers:
Unlike many other law enforcement agencies,
when the USCP sends officers to training, we must backfill that position with overtime, due to
the fact that most officers are filling required posts. We are not able to pull officers from other
locations or “stack” calls for service to make up for officers who are attending training.
Currently, the USCP is allotted 24,000 hours of overtime backfill for training purposes. With a
workforce of approximately 2,300 employees, this doesn’t equate to a large number of training
hours per employee. The USCP is continually looking at ways to more effectively and
efficiently provide training to its members. The initial Civil Disturbance Unit (CDU) training
requires 40 hours of initial training, and bi-annual training of 8 hours. And that is for just the
basic level of CDU. Congress needs to support greater training funds that will allow a basic
CDU training for all of the employees, and a specialized CDU training for the USCP employees
assigned to CDU duties. The events of January 6, 2021, have demonstrated the critical need for
specialized training to deal with these types of incidents.
Communications with the Congressional Community:
We have heard from a number of the
staff that systems established to communicate with the congressional community, such as the
Joint Emergency Message Notifications System (JEMNS), the Annunciator Emergency Alerting
System (AEAS), and the Public Address System may not have been as effective as expected or as
necessary under these circumstances. The internal USCP review should evaluate the
effectiveness of the systems on January 6, 2021, and the extent that the systems were utilized.
The review should also evaluate the effectiveness of the implementation of mass messaging from
the Command Center.
National Guard Support for the USCP:
The
Defense Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA)
policies and procedures need to be reviewed and updated following this incident. When a
civilian law enforcement agency fulfilling a national security mission protecting the continuity of
government and the legislative process is faced with an armed insurrection of thousands of
violent individuals, there must be an immediate and seamless process for the military to provide
assistance. In addition, the USCP needs more authority to call in the National Guard.
This
incident has also revealed the need for our National Guard forces to receive specialized training
in civil disobedience.
Since the events of January 6, 2021, the Speaker of the House, the Honorable Nancy Pelosi has
co-sponsored legislation to issue the Congressional Gold Medal to the United States Capitol
police. In her press release regarding this legislation, dated February 11, 2021, the Speaker
stated, “The outstanding heroism and patriotism of our heroes deserve and demand our deepest
appreciation, which is why I am honored to introduce legislation to pay tribute to the Capitol
Police and other law enforcement personnel who protected the U.S. Capitol on January 6 with
the Congressional Gold Medal: the highest honor that the Congress can bestow. The service of
the Capitol Police force that day brings honor to our Democracy, and their accepting this Gold
Medal will bring luster to this award.” In bestowing this award, Congress rightly recognized the
extraordinary events and overwhelming odds that the United States Capitol Police faced that day.
I wished I had the opportunity to continue my work with the USCP. I truly appreciate every
member of the Department, sworn and civilian, and I worked hard to ensure that every one of
them felt that they were a valued member of the team and essential to our mission. The USCP is
not like any other police agency in the country and, until January 6, 2021, many people did not
truly understand the breadth of its responsibility or the role it plays in protecting our democracy.
The USCP is an outstanding agency and I will always be proud of my time there. It is essential
that Congress take the steps necessary to ensure that something like this never happens again. I
will assist you in any way that I can.

„Unter Mithilfe von Geheimdienstmitarbeitern
Das FBI soll den »Sturm auf das Kapitol« initiiert
haben“ ...

Lief es beim Sturm(?) auf den Bundestag im Rechtstags-Gebäude etwa in Anlehnung an diese auch m. E. Schweinerei?

„An diesem Wochenende stürmten sie mit ihren schwarz-weiß-roten Fahnen zwar nicht den Reichstag, wohl aber die Prime Time im öffentlich-rechtlichen Fernsehen. Man fragt sich, warum Bauernfänger, Verschwörungstheoretiker und krude Populisten so leichtes Spiel haben. Eine Antwort könnte lauten:
Die Parteien der politischen Mitte machen ihnen ihr Geschäft geradezu unerträglich leicht“!!!

".... Die heutige RTL-Suche bringt eine Geschichte aus Vrhovina in der Gespanschaft Brod-Posavina, deren Einheimische - einige von ihnen - behaupten, bei den jüngsten Kommunalwahlen als Wähler registriert zu sein, obwohl sie zu diesem Zeitpunkt nicht in Kroatien waren. Die HDZ hat dort übrigens die Macht gewonnen. Für Bürgermeister Mato Grgić ist es die dritte Amtszeit, die er im ersten Wahlgang mit 82 Stimmen oder 65,60 Prozent gewann.

(((*HDZ ist die Mitte. Wie wir sehen-es ist ein winzig kleines Dorf.)))

Die ganze Geschichte für RTL wurde von Tomislav Tolić, einem Mitglied des Wahlausschusses von Vrhovina, der sonst zur Gemeinde Garčin gehört, bestätigt. Im Gegenteil, Tolic zeigte die SMS, die er angeblich von HDZ-Beobachtern bei den Kommunalwahlen erhalten hat, in der er angeblich vorschlägt, für einen der Wähler zu bestätigen, dass er wirklich zur Wahl gekommen ist.

"Wenn dich jemand versehentlich wegen der Wahl anruft, soll gesagt werden, dass ************* an den Wahlen war", heißt es in der Nachricht, die den Namen des mutmaßlichen Wählers zeigt.

"Ich habe gesehen, wie Leute zusammengetrieben wurden.
Tolic sagt, er habe am Wahltag den Wahlraum verlassen, als ihm klar wurde, was los war. "Menschen, die nicht physisch anwesend sind, die nicht zur Wahl gehen, wurden eingekreist", sagte er vor der Kamera. Auf die Frage des Journalisten, was er genau gesehen habe, antwortete er:

„Ich habe gesehen, dass Leute zusammengetrieben wurden, ich habe meine Tochter abgeholt und bin nach draußen gegangen. Wir haben die Papiere unterschrieben und wollten nicht dabei sein“, sagte er. Er behauptet, er habe den Präsidenten der Kommunalwahlkommission mit einer Nachricht über alles informiert, aber keine Antwort erhalten.

Das letzte Mal war ich am 12. April in Kroatien. '
Einige der Einheimischen, die erfuhren, dass sie bei den Wahlen zusammengetrieben wurden, als hätten sie gewählt, sprachen auch für RTL und behaupteten, sie seien damals weit von Kroatien entfernt.
Einer von ihnen ist Antonio Babic. Er kontaktierte RTL per Skype aus Deutschland.
Er behauptet, er sei das letzte Mal am 1. April in Kroatien gewesen und sei nur zwei Wochen geblieben. "Ich habe am 12. April vorübergehend ausgecheckt und wir sind an diesem Wochenende nach Deutschland abgereist und sind dann nie wieder gekommen “, sagt Babić, der dann, wie er behauptet, eine ungewöhnliche Einladung von einem Freund erhalten hat.

"Er hat mich gefragt, als ich in Kroatien ankam. Ich sagte, ich sei nicht in KRO, und er sagte, ich hätte bei den Kommunalwahlen gewählt. Ich schickte eine Anfrage an die Gemeinde Garčin und nach ein paar Stunden antworteten sie, dass ich zur Urne gegangen und mein Name eingekreist worden sei. Es tut mir leid, dass ich gewählt habe und nicht in KRO war“, sagt die Journalistin, Herr Babić.
......

Und kein Einzelfall..... Es gibt noch mehrere "Wähler", nur habe ich kein Bock zum übersetzen :-)
…...........

RTL-Suche habe versucht, konkretere Antworten vom Präsidenten des Wahllokals, von HDZ-Beobachtern und dem Präsidenten der Wahlkommission der Gemeinde Garčin zu bekommen. Sie alle, sagen sie, haben abgelehnt.

Das wundert mich nicht, denn ein gewisser Egar Hoover, langjähiger Boss des FBI war mit seinem Verein maßgeblich an der Ermordung von J.F. Kennedy beteiligt, denn Kennedy hatte eine Rede, die so gar nicht der political correctness der miesen versifften Demokraten entsprach in New York City gehalten. Das war wohl sein Todesurteil, von wegen Einzeltäter Lee Harvey Oswald mit Repetier Karabiner vom Schulbuch Haus. Wer hat denn die Schüsse z.B . von vorn hinter dem Zaun abgefeuert? Ja und die behauptete "magische Kugel" stammt wohl aus 1001 Nacht. Aber auch das und die Sauerei von Nine Eleven wird auch noch zutage kommen. Als Vater Bush beerdigt wurde, fanden die Truergäste in ihren Programmen jeweils ein Kuvert in denen stand "Sie wissen alles!" Nun wer sind die, die alles wissen? Es dürften die Gleichen sein die auch heute alles über die geklaute Wahl von Donald Trump wissen.
"Es ist nichts zu fein gesponnen, es kommt alles ans Licht der Sonnen".
