Ex Capitol Police Chief Still Blames Others For J6 Riot, Writes Book About It

Ex-Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund says a succession of government failures resulted in the Jan. 6 riot.

  • He argued the federal government’s multibillion-dollar security network – built after 9/11 to gather intelligence about another possible attack – provided no such information about a potential riot.
  • Sund says the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and the Capitol Police’s intelligence unit had been alerted weeks earlier about so-called “chatter” about right-wing extremists arming for an attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
