A prominent senator is demanding information from U.S. Capitol Police about how some “300 people” gained unauthorized access to the Capitol through a single doorway during the events of January 6.
Article by Bob Unruh.
That’s when protesters went to the building, entered – sometimes through broken windows – and vandalized it.
Democrats and legacy media outlets repeatedly have blamed President Trump, who held a rally earlier that day and told his supporters to protest the presidential election in 2020 – with its suspicious events – “peacefully.”
Democrats even used the events of that day to stage their second, failed, impeach-and-remove strategy against President Trump, adopting an article of impeachment without testimony or evidence.
Now Just the News is reporting a demand from Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., that officials give him information about a security footage video that he reviewed.
He’s the top Republican on the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, and wrote to U.S. Capitol Police Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman this week.
He explains video footage of the Jan. 6 riot reveals more than 300 people entered the building through a single doorway. He now wants answers from police officers who were nearby.
“Have these officers filed detailed reports of this incident?” Johnson asked in his letter. “Has USCP conducted transcribed interviews with them? If so, I request copies of these reports and transcribed interviews. If not, I respectfully ask for the opportunity to interview these officers.”
Authorities have estimate that about 800 people without permission entered the building that day. The 309 people who came through that single doorway would make up more than one-third of the total.
The circumstances are suspicious, the senator said:
“At approximately 2:26 p.m. on January 6, a security camera showed a male inside the Capitol attempting to open one of the upper west terrace doors to exit the building. This unauthorized individual, who was by himself at the time, walked through a narrow hallway to the double doors and attempted to exit through the left door by pushing the door’s crash bar. The door did not open and the individual turned around and walked back through the hallway and away from the doors.
“Approximately seven minutes later, at 2:33 p.m., security footage showed five unauthorized individuals walking down the same hallway, past a police officer. The security footage, which did not include audio, appeared to show the police officer gesturing toward the doors as these individuals walked past him. Once at the double doors, one of the five individuals pushed the left door’s crash bar and this time, it opened. All five individuals exited the building at approximately 2:33 p.m.”
He continued, “Does USCP know why at approximately 2:26 p.m. an individual could not open the left door at the upper west terrace entrance, but seven minutes later, at 2:33 p.m., another individual could open that same door? Does USCP have any indication that this door was locked at 2:26 p.m. and then unlocked by 2:33 p.m.?”
Johnson noted in the letter it took only about 14 minutes for “approximately 309 unauthorized individuals” to gain access through that door.
The senator noted officers apparently had formed a line across the hallway to block people from entering. But several people “pushed past the officers” and that the officers “did not appear to take any further action to stop or block people entering the building until a few minutes later.”
The officers ultimately “appeared to slowly retreat from the doorway, allowing a surge of people to, once again, enter the building.”
New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
Join fellow patriots as we keep Americans informed and advance the cause of conservatism.
