Mainstream Meeting Is Obsessed Over Leaked Kevin McCarthy Tape

"Thing the mainstream media is obsessed with these days, if you look over at MSNBC or CNN, and I did, big mistake. They are fixated on this audio tape and a book by a couple of New York Times reporters hoping to continue to stir and spotlight divisiveness among the Republicans because Kevin McCarthy was on the phone with Liz Cheney two days after January 6th. And Kevin McCarthy on tape said he was going to suggest that president Trump resign. Which is, of course, absurd. He had a few days left in his presidency as my friend Mark likes to say, January 6th, 8 some people's brains. Some people became consumed with confusion, lack of focus, and you know, we've seen the images of legislators with gas masks on hiding under tables in the chamber of the House, the barricades that were put up. We saw the video of Ashley babbitt shot dead by a capitol police officer who was thoroughly exonerated in shooting and killing her. But they had a big pile of chairs, I think we ought to take a little bit of time to have a bit of compassion for how that messed with people's heads.

Our American Justice System Was Upended by Jan. 6 Hysteria

"Now, there are reporters who do a pretty good job of covering all angles of a story like the January 6th Capitol Hill riots. Scott McFarland, out of D.C., is a great investigative journalist. He's been all over. That's kind of his beat. He's been given the beat of January 6th in the D.C. area. And he reported on something that I didn't see on ABC world news tonight anywhere else. I've been looking through The New York Times, The Washington Post, they're not covering the not guilty verdict of the 1st January 6th, 6th defendant who testified on his own behalf. First guy to do so was found not guilty. The judge said that he was led in by the capitol police. And the evidence shows that he wasn't violent. He didn't fight with any cops. He didn't damage any property. This guy, from New Mexico, Matthew Martin was charged with four counts. The reason this is so important is our entire American justice system in my view has been upended. By the hysteria over January 6th, and yes, it is hysteria. January 6th was terrible. So were riots over George Floyd. That was awful, too. People getting killed over George Floyd's death is awful. Cops getting assaulted. Killed. Remember, the guy in St. Louis murdered trying to help his buddies pawn shop from being burned to the ground?

More People Were Killed During BLM Riots Than Jan. 6 Protest

"A heck of a lot more people were killed during the BLM antifa riots, the January 6th. Because as we know, only Ashley babbitt was killed on January 6th. That's it. It's a fact that nobody else died as a direct response or directly involving the January 6th riots only Ashley babbitt. Officer sicknick died the day after the riots of, according to the medical examiner, natural causes. You can pretend that he had some kind of a medical episode because he was stressed about the attacks. That's a lie. According to the medical examiner, the other people, the other several people who died, they had medical conditions and they died of natural causes. Only Ashley babbitt was killed. So nobody was killed. On January 6th, except the Trump supporter by capitol police officer. That's it. So when people argue, we want to accountability. What accountability what media figure and I know of personally, I know media figures whose phone records have been subpoenaed by the January 6th select committee. I know people who are being hauled before their committee. They were there that day, they want accountability. What media figures being held responsible or accountable for the BLM rights.

The Republicans That Are Almost Worse Than Democrats

"You have John McCain who single handedly. Single handedly made ObamaCare, the law of the land, to spite Donald Trump, a very wicked actor, a rhino if ever there was one who was the standard bearer for the Republican Party, followed by Mitt Romney, who was the standard bearer for the Republican Party. We now know McCain and Romney to be, you know, are worse than Democrats. The people pretending to be, they're almost worse than Democrats. But that aside for the moment. But Lindsey Graham, until he had his heroic moment denouncing the folks at the Kavanaugh hearings, he was in bed with McCain and the neocon rhino hawks and he's doing it again. I didn't know that he had reiterated this call for these estimation of Putin crazy. Well, let me tell you what else Lindsey Graham did. On January 6th he went to the capitol police. And urged them to shoot the demonstrators. I think the quote was, yo, have guns. You should use them. He was asking for a nonviolent American protesters to be shot. He wanted to actually babbitt to be to be murdered. And Lindsey got his wishes, I guess. Well, he wanted more. I mean, they would have been 20 or 30 dead if it had been up to Lindsey Graham. The capitol police were not his bloodthirsty as Lindsey Graham. She met Lindsey Graham wanting American protesters shot and calling recklessly for the assassination of a foreign leader of a nuclear country. Mitt Romney calling for American politicians to be politically interned because they're guilty of treason. Treason for criticizing war propaganda. Now, in order to commit treason, you have to help an enemy while the United States is legally at war. Are we at war with Russia? Let me check the time I checked. We are not in a state of war with Russia. Congress hasn't been convenient, Mitt Romney knows perfectly well. There is no treason possible when you're trying to prevent a war. This is the kind of totalitarianism that you see in Putin's Russia. And in zelensky's Ukraine, people don't know, zelensky's political opponents are rotting in prison too. Ukrainian dissidents who are seen as being pro Putin, they are in prison too. These are

"capitol police" Discussed on WTOP

"6th attack on the capitol building at a report this week indicates some capitol police officers may be hesitant to use force that report released just this week by the government accountability office barely shows more than 300 officers and all who were working on the day of the insurrection were surveyed for this report What were the findings regarding the use of force We turned this morning to Washington Post national security reporter Devlin Varys For the results We're finding for pretty interesting because they said that one in four of the officers who answered their questions said there was a hesitancy within the capitol police to use force in large part because officers were afraid they would be punished after the fact And overall the report found that there needs to be more extensive training for realistic situations involving force What were some of the reasons for being hesitant here Well a lot of officers expressed concern that if they used force they would be penalized or disciplined later by their commanders The other thing that really stood out from the report is that more than half of the officers failed that they didn't have enough information and didn't have enough guidance about just how dangerous January 6th was going to be Do we have a response from capitol police itself to this Capital police officials say they agree with the recommendations and they are working to improve these issues But this report is really about work culture as much as anything And so obviously that for most police departments that takes time That's the thing It appears that they've tackled some of these issues or at least capitol police thought they did but more work needs to be done Right and the GAO has previously found that even a year after there are still things that could be much better And one of the points that JO makes is that there could be something else like this in the future You have to prepare.

The Preposterous Civil Lawsuit Against Brandon Straka

"Folks I'm talking to Brandon strock, a Brandon chilling story, but we haven't even really gotten into the civil suit. This is the most preposterous thing of all. You mentioned it yesterday. You are being charged with all kinds of things. It's sheer madness. Who do you think is behind this? Well, that's one thing, again, I would love to get to the bottom of and that I hope that some investigative journalists or heavy hitters in the conservative media start asking those questions. I really hope that that happens because what has happened is a law firm in D.C. very well funded very big operation, something that it's like David versus Goliath for me. They have put together this lawsuit. In which I call them a social justice warrior law firm because if you go to their website, what you'll see is that they're primarily focused on suing people for civil rights violations and which is a good thing in theory, except that this is obviously a very progressive and leftist mindset because if you look at what they're saying on their website is that they're going after white supremacists, they're going after domestic terrorists. And these are all buzzwords for Republicans, and Trump supporters. So this is in my opinion a Democrat party funded nonprofit law firm, which is abusing the law to engage in law fair to hurt people who are of an opposite political ideology as themselves. And so in the month of September, they served me in this lawsuit and I can't prove this, but what I believe happened is that they went out, they found 7 capitol police officers who happened to be black and brown people said, we'll cover all the expenses, will represent you. You don't have to do a thing, but basically be a plaintiff in this lawsuit in which we are going to allege that dozens of people engaged in a racially biased hate crime attack on black and brown police officers on January 6th. We're going to call them white supremacists and racists and we're going to claim that they attacked you and you just have to go along for the ride. That's what I believe happened.

Troy Nehls: Nancy Pelosi 'Weaponizing' Capitol Police to Silence Me

"Were the offices in your offices on Thanksgiving, photographing your materials. Were they in uniform or were they undercover in plain clothes? While the one officer that was that apparently took the photo, I still can't even get that information from the chief the police and confirm that that it was he. But he said he found my door wide open. He found the door wide open on a Saturday afternoon at three 30. Now, my office, we didn't have anybody there at Saturday afternoon. They were all home. They were all gone, but he was going through to check to make sure that there was no one that shouldn't be there. No one unauthorized should have been in my office. He didn't find anybody there, and he should have left, but he took it upon himself to go start snooping around and start looking at my white board where I keep all my legislative priorities. All my data, what I'm trying to do legislatively here for this next year. And so he looked at that and he said, well, that looks suspicious. Look at that little hand drawn map of the rayburn building. Boom, I'm going to take a picture and have this guy investigated. And that's exactly what they did. And then a few days later, I have these secret squirrels. These deep state on their cover agents knocking on my door, confronting my staffer who just happened to be there. Is it your hypothesis that these people, these officers are acting under the command under the direction of the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi? I believe that Nancy Pelosi now has weaponized the U.S. capitol police. She's weaponized them. She's getting these individuals now. It seems like the capitol police is now her own private law enforcement agency, federal law enforcement agency, getting these individuals to spy on members of Congress, gather intelligence, do background checks, and Nancy Pelosi obviously does it like me too much, mister gork, obviously. I told you, I'm a very vocal critic of what it took place on January 6th.

Rep. Troy Nehls Claims Disguised Capitol Police Snuck Into His Office

"Pelosi's capital police tried to sneak into Republican congressman's office dressed as construction workers and illegally took photos of legislative documents. Speaker Nancy Pelosi's capitol police are alleging to have illegally entered the office of congressman Troy nels, photographing confidential legislative products and grilling staff according to reports. The police now under formal investigation, Santa accused of dressing up as construction workers and attempting another entry just two days later. So correct me if I'm wrong, didn't Nixon get impeached for lying about something very similar to this, but it wasn't even it wasn't even as flagrant as this. So there's so much here that needs to be investigated, Pelosi's, I guess this is the closest Pelosi you'll ever get towards loving construction workers, right? Like, yeah, go to the local Halloween store and go dress up as construction people. So this sitting member of Congress Troy Nell's from Texas is alleging that Nancy Pelosi and Democrats have made capital police go dress up in costume as construction workers to go into capital offices and to go take pictures of documents. Reports suggest that capitol police have built intelligence dossiers on those illegally investigated. The documents photographed saint Nell's quote are protected by the speech and debate clause enshrined in the constitution article one section 6. Nels took to Twitter to explain the multiple incidents. Again, I'm going to read directly from his tweets. Because these are some pretty serious allegations breaking. Capitol police intelligence division investigated my office illegally. And one of my staffers caught them in the act. On November 20th, capitol police entered my office without my knowledge and photographed confidential legislative products protected by the speech and debate clause enshrined and constitution article one section 6.

'January 6' Author Julie Kelly Describes What Actually Happened on That Fateful Day

"Folks talking to Julie Kelly both hours today, the brand new book January 6th, which is an expose on what actually happened and what we can know as of now. So Julie, again, what actually happened based on your reportage is dramatically different than the narrative we're getting. The candlelight vigil that the Democrats put on the other day. All of this just ridiculous theater. Mainstream media and to some extent conservative media is going along with this. What gives you hope that the truth is coming out? I do think that at least if our Republican leadership is you said Kevin McCarthy, who is just very weak, let's think about this. Last week, he released a video a little Montage talking about what Republicans were going to do. They stand up for this. They stand up for that. Stand up for law enforcement. He included clips of the U.S. capitol police in this video. This is the agency responsible for the near point blank execution of Ashley babbitt. I would say the speakers lobby on January 6th. And here is the Republican leader of the House of Representatives commending this police agency who not only is responsible for her killing, but covering up the name of the officer who did it for months on end. This is the agency who still lies to this day that Brian sicknick was killed in the line of duty by Trump supporters and here you have Kevin McCarthy, including them in a clip instead of other police officers across the country who are under siege every day and major cities as Democrat governors let crime run rampant. This is how tone deaf and out of touch Kevin McCarthy is and shame on him for commending U.S. capitol police and now going along for the most part with this January 6th narrative. But Eric, I do feel like the rank and file the base of the Republican Party are increasingly outraged about what they hear about January 6th are increasingly suspicious and convinced that the government played a much bigger, if not animating central role in what happened that day. And they are starting to call for Republican lawmakers to be held

Professor Victor Davis Hanson Breaks Down the 'Buffoonish Riot' of January 6

"Professor Hansen, welcome to America first. Thank you for having me. So let me just, I noted some of the words from that brand new video that has been posted on the Internet president Trump affected a coup an insurrection his supporters are traitors and brandishing AR-15s who are afraid of democracy, president Trump is demented. Just your reactions to those adjectives alone. Well, I criticize it as sort of a buffoonish riot, but insurrection and conspiracy are precise words. So let's just break them down. The FBI ran an investigation. They found no conspiracy. You can't have an insurrection unless people are armed. There were nobody that entered the capitol that it possessed or used a firearm. And we had headlines at 5 people died in an officer had been murdered. The officer Brian sicknick died of natural cause. We didn't find out for days. Because the media alleged that he had been bashed in the head by a Trump supporter or had suffered an allergic reaction due to bear spray by a Trump supporter. So what we were left with of that commercial was a 105 pound 14 year old 14 year military veteran ashleigh babbitt who was lethally shot for the crime of entering a window in the capitol breaking and entering either a low level felony or a misdemeanor. And we didn't get any information about the officer who shot her. So the whole narrative is broken down, but I like clarity. I like transparency. So I think the best thing that should do is have an independent commission. And let's get everything out. Let's get all of the videos. Let's get all of the communications about law enforcement between Democrats, Republicans, capitol police, administrators, everything. Get it out in a nonpartisan, not a congressional asymmetrical investigation, but an independent sort of Warren commission. Let's find out. And let's see if anybody was FBI informant. Maybe there were wearing. They were not. I don't

"They're not looking into Pelosi and her dereliction of duty Are they Julie No but they're not And here's one thing I want to say about Nancy Pelosi and Mario Bowser the D.C. mayor who rejected offers of additional national guardsmen I believe that it is because D.C. natural police and capital police had their marching orders which was to number one attack the crowd of peaceful protesters early on These officers contrary to the groupthink most of them were covered head to toe and riot gear They were not recognizable They did not have badge numbers You could not see their faces They started throwing explosives into the crowd assembled outside doing nothing wrong This was included flash bangs something called sting balls which releases rubber bullets Capitol police had what looked like guns long like but some sort of rifle that they were putting pepper balls into which emits pepper gas when it hits the ground And so there's plenty of video and photographs of this happening right before the first physical breach of the building but marks this is what led to a lot of the confrontations between protesters and police Where you see Trump supporters yelling at police you know we've always had your back we've supported you We back the blue Why are you doing this to us The former NYPD police officer Thomas Webster who runs up to the police line as screaming at them calling them communists for attacking Americans And so this prompted some of the attacks back on police So I believe that that is primarily why Nancy Pelosi mura Bowser did not want guardsman there to say what are you doing You're not supposed to be assaulting

Forty two in dc metropolitan police department ways responsibilities include riot response. Us capitol police officer. Harry done as a thirteen year veteran. The united states capitol police and a member of its first responder unit as the morning progressed in the crowd of protesters began to swell on the east side of the capitol. Many displaying trump flags the crowd was chanting slogans. Like stop the steel and we want trump but demonstration was still being conducted in a peaceful manner. Then i heard radio calls for additional officers to respond to the west side and an exclamation a desperate voice that demonstrators on the west side had breached fence. You could hear the tone of the individual officers voices. They were scared in iraq. We spent their armed violence because we were in a war zone but nothing my spirit in the army or as law enforcement officer. Prepare me for what. we confronted. Jeremy six the verbal assaults and disrespect will endure from the rioters. Were bad enough. I was falsely accused of betraying my oath of choosing my paycheck choosing my paycheck over my loyalty to the. Us constitution evening us. I defended the berry. Mccray process that protect to everyone the hostile crowd while while i was at the low west terrace the capital war. Cool my fellow officers to prevent the breach and restore order. The writers komi trader. A disgrace in shower. That i i an army better. Police officer should be executed. Eventually it was my turn in the meat grinder. That was the front line. The terrorists had a wall shields that they had stolen from officers as well as stolen batons. What other armaments they brought. Even during this intense contest of wills they tried to convert us to their cult. One man shouted we all just want to make our voices heard and i think you feel the same. I really think you feel the same. Oh well another man. Attempts to better with the stolen shield. Another man like many others didn't seem to appreciate that. This wasn't a game. He fought his way across the lawn up the steps through the western terrorists. All the oc in cs gas in at the front line of this final threshold was asking us to hold on because he has asthma the two sides. We're at a stalemate at a metal door frame that sat in the middle of the hallway at the front line. I inserted myself so the frame was at my back in an effort to give myself something to brace against provide additional strength strength when pushing forward unfortunately soon after i secured this position the momentum shifted and we lost the ground. Got me there. More and more insurrectionist were pouring into the area by the speakers lobby near the rotunda and some wearing maga- hats and shirts that said trump twenty twenty. I told him to just leave the capital and response. They yelled no man. This is our house. President trump invited us here. We're here to stop the steel. Joe biden is not the president. Nobody voted for joe biden. I'm a law enforcement officer. And i do my best to keep politics out of my job but in this circumstance i responded. Well i voted for joe biden. Is my vote not count. Am i nobody. That prompted a torrent of racial epithets. One woman in a pink maggot shirt yelled you here. That guys is nigger. Voted for joe biden. Then the crowd. Perhaps twenty people joined in screaming. Boom fucking nigger. No one had ever ever called me a nigger while wearing the uniform of a capital police officer in the days following the attempted insurrection. Other black officer shared with me their own stories of racial abuse on january. Six one officer told me he had never in his entire forty years of life been called a nigger to his face and that streak ended on january six yet. Another black officer later told me he'd been cr- confronted by insurrection. It's in the capital. Who told him. Put your gun down. And we'll show you kinda nigger you really are to be candid rested afternoon as a blur but i know i went throughout the capital to assist officers who needed aid and help expel more insurrectionist. I was trying to push guys off of me. Create some space all the while. I recognize the fact that There were individuals that were trying to grab a hold of my gun. I remember one of them distinctly launching it me. Tom and tom again trying to grab my gun. And i heard people in the crowd yelling it is gun a killing with his own gun and words to that effect a thought about using my weapon. I believe that there were individuals in the crowd whose intentions were to kill me and i came to that conclusion because of the fact that Separated from these other officers. Who are only trying to defend the capital. I no longer posed any type of threat. Nor was i an impediment to them You know going inside of the building but yet they tortured me. They beat me. I was struck with a tasers device at the base of my skull numerous times and they continued to do so until i yelled out that i have kids and i said that hoping to appeal to some of their Some of those individuals humanity And fortunately a few did step in and intervene on my behalf They did assist me back towards the mouth of the tunnel entrance and other all were then able to rescue me employees back inside but at that point i was unconscious and based off the body. Worn camera footage It's believed that. I was unconscious for approximately four minutes. The sea of people was punctuated throughout by flags mostly variations of american flags and trump flags or as gets and flags. It was clear. The terrorists perceive themselves to be christians. I saw the christian flag directly my front now the red jesus as my savior trump is president. Another jesus king one flag red. Don't give up the ship.

"More handle on the news. Jennifer Jones, Lee Wayne and me. A second U. S Capitol Police officer has committed suicide. This was revealed during congressional testimony. Theatrically in chief was talking to the House Appropriations Committee and revealed amongst other things that this has happened now. Is there any connection and they connected the suicides to what happened, Or is it just serendipitous that it just happens to? Because that happened good cops commit suicide, much higher rate. Then non cops. I think just the timing. The connection is assumed because of the timing. But I suspect both of these guys were already troubled. You would think so before this happened and to a certain state. Especially as a law enforcement officer. When you get to a certain state at that point, it doesn't take much more. So maybe that is what happened here. I read this story to this morning on the Capitol police officers that are injured and still recovering from the attack. Officials say one officer has cracked ribs. Another is expected to lose an eye and others. In other words, multiples have brain injuries. It's just unfathomable to me. Yeah, and so many American few these people's Patriots. By the tens of millions of Americans think they're patriots. There was just the cost of doing business when you have a revolutionary war and you want to bring America back to its state of freedom. You want to bring democracy back? I mean, it is so screwed up. It's beyond belief. All right, well, the MIM that we all have seen that gets funnier and funnier in my book. Ah!

"Let's keep it rolling here. Going to go to Phyllis in Foxboro. Phillips Phillips, Welcome. You're next on the ring septal. Nice. I quotable and go right ahead. Good evening, Dan and I have to agree with you. I'm wondering why the guardsmen are still there to cook because I assumed or I thought that their mission Wasps to provide protection during the inauguration. That's done. We're moving on. They should be on their way home. They have families, too, and they have jobs and what not so they shouldn't even be there. Secondly, I was under the impression that I read today that the order was given to them by a member of the Capitol police. That I had read that as well. I find that difficult to believe that A simple police officer is the way it was described. I mean, if it's someone in authority, let's find out who it was. Well, I believe he had a rank of captain or colonel. Something like that. So he had some rank. Um The other thing that I read was that there was a senator and beg me. I I don't remember his name who was calling for a complete investigation. And I guess what bothers me about that is that Rather than look for a solution. We want to point fingers and find somebody to blame And that's not always the best foot forward. Obviously you want. You don't want it to happen again. It could have been a mist misstep. But we'll make it right. Fix it. And we'll move on. Appointing an investigation is ridiculous. We cannot do that. With every single thing that goes doesn't go our way. Don't you see? I'm I don't think you need a very thorough I mean, you don't need a congressional investigation here. But when thousands you know thousands of national guards, personnel, men and women, Guardsmen and guards, women Were moved to the inside of a parking garage and we're basically sleeping on a on a cement floor after what they had been subjected to in the last, you know, few days. Um you know it troubles me and I'd love to know what happened troubles me too. And I mean, I'm not saying that I'm not saying that we need to fire people. But you know, the Capitol police Both the sergeant at arms in the house and the sergeant at arms in the Senate, as well as the head of the Capitol police all resigned within a matter of hours from January 6th that was totally screwed up. They did not coordinate adequately with other police agencies and their personnel were let out there and there was that that was a failure of leadership on behalf of the Capitol police. If that it's now been compounded by someone ordering You don't got thousands of men and women in National guard groups. I'd like to know why. I mean, if someone made a mistake and they overstep their bounds or someone had the authority, and they issued an order, as I said, If they said, Look, we got too many guardsmen here now we don't need this. Many guardsmen and Congress is in session. I would bet you that if they called the the major sports Arena in Washington, D C, which is the home of the Washington Wizards and the Washington Capitals. That's a 20,000 seat arena. You you could have given those folks an opportunity. Go in there and sit and spread out, Maintain social distance and be comfortable. How much thought would it would have had taken a copy that? No, I absolutely agree There was there. There definitely were other options sitting in a parking lot floor was not a good option. For whatever reason, however, why ever that they were sent down there? Remains to be investigated. If you will, or at least explain to come home along with it. How long were they down there? Well, they got down there was earliest last weekend. I don't know exactly the time. I don't know. I mean, how long were they in the garage for several hours. I don't have a precise. Oh, yeah. No, it wasn't like they would in there and they were in there for five minutes. And someone said, Oh, come on. We made a mistake. Come on back this way. We got. We got a cookout over here knew they. You know they were there. I saw one congressman from North Carolina who happens to be a young member of Congress, who, actually, um, was just elected the first term congressman who actually himself personally delivered. Hundreds of pizzas. He drove into the garage with sort of a van and a staff member. This fella happens to be, by the way, he was a young guy paralyzed in a car accident. I think so. He's only 24 years old, I think, and he had the wherewithal to purchase it looked like it must have been 100 of more pizzas, and they were passing out of the truck. And you know you've been sitting there all day. Great American gesture. That was, I thought that was really and I know somebody's gonna try toe blow it off is a photo op. But I'm telling you, that was a really sincere Chester. If you're in that situation, and you haven't had anything to eat or drink all day. I mean, you know that. That's a great great job, Phyllis. Thank you so much. Appreciate your call. Very, very much. Appreciate it. You can have a nice day. You too. Have a great weekend. Talk soon. Stay warm. Let's go to many in Gloucester.

"In about those involved some We've learned our believers in the cult conspiracy. Q and on one was a gold medalist from team U. S. A, and many were finding out our law enforcement officials and firefighters tasked with protecting American citizens. Some are also members of the military for the latest on what we know about those who stormed the capital. Here's a B C's Martha Raddatz. Martha, You've been tracking these people from the very beginning, looking at pictures talking to law enforcement. Who were these people who attack the capital? You had a vast array of people there, but all of them extremist extreme Trump supporters saying that Joe Biden didn't win the election. You had militia members. You had armed individuals. In that crowd. You had people in tactical gear. There were a number of veterans I saw, which is so disturbing law enforcement. There were some former firefighters, for instance, one of them now charged with heaving and £50 fire extinguisher. At law enforcement. It was a vast array of angry, frenzied people in a mob. You've covered things like this in other countries. Compare that to what you saw last week in Washington and the people that they are now uncovering any similarities. I have Been overseas in in conflicts. But you are with the Americans to watch the capital understand each toe. Listen to what some of these demonstrators were saying that they had a right to be there and going after law enforcement with such vigor and know they lost a Capitol police officer, But a lot of those officers up there could have lost their lives. They dragged police officers out of the building, beating them with the polls, carrying an American flag kicking and punching them. It is just incomprehensible that this would happen on American soil. Like people who have been fed a bunch of lies. 20,000 National Guard troops in Washington D. C. Now what are they saying about protecting the U. S Capitol from U. S citizens? It is a really difficult position for the National Guard to be, and I think people forget that these are citizen soldiers. They were called up from their homes to come in and protect the capital and that kind of Power. That kind of presence makes people feel really good. But on the other hand, these air troops that are not Trained very consistently in law enforcement. These are people who help in humanitarian situations. Generally, even on January, 6th, the National Guard was helping the police traffic stops. So this is a completely unprecedented situation. You've got them. Trying to protect the nation's capital. From what what may well be their neighbors. Finally, Martha, I watched you throughout the day on Wednesday and was watching you because you were out in the streets and and saw people surrounding you steps being taken coming up for next week for the inauguration. It's a scary time you've been in scary places before. Can you compare that? It's a dangerous situation, but I think one of the hardest parts here is because it's so personal. The president and many of supporters have been calling the press the enemy of the people. The press is a target. No question, and I felt it up there and the idea that someone is shouting your name and wanting other people to run over. Just around you Those air really dangerous, dangerous situations, and you just have to keep your cool and depend on your crew and depend on your own instincts and hope those fellow Americans don't really go after you, Martha Raddatz. Nobody better than you. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. Now, with the focus on Washington, shifting back and forth between the impeachment and security President Trump took a trip to Texas this week to promote his administration's immigration policies..

"It was a terrifying experience. I was in the chamber when the Capitol police locked us in with the senators. I I could hear the show from outside. I've never been in that way that the Capitol police Came out of the phalanx or ah organized enforcement and push people back. They deployed paint ball guns and pepper spray. Unfortunately, it took some time restraint right in the eye, but that was too close to the building on was not able to retreat because of the crowds behind us. Look, this is not what democracy looks like. This is what totalitarianism looks like. I'm the foreign affairs reporter for CBS. I've covered dictators. I've been in the room with them. You can see hundreds, if not thousands. Of protestors supporting President Trump clashing with police. Many police are armed. They have long guns were tactical gear summer covering their ears. It's unclear whether that's because of the floors. Of the crowds. And so we are there, and there are Capitol police officers on the floor.

Black cops warned about racist Capitol police officers for years. Just before the break, Joaquin SAPIEN. You were describing some of the horrific incidents and I'm wondering if you could now tell us how the department responded to allegations and complaints. Well, these lawsuits have been tied up in the courts for a really long time. The allegations in them are still unresolved and one of the main You know, folks is of frustration for the black officers were involved in taking a stand and in making their voices heard on these issues is that they felt Congress never really took them seriously. A number of them had met with the sergeant of arms. That number had met with key members of Congress. Uh, they help demonstrations outside of this building that they were sworn to protect. And so they've been doing the best they could draw attention to The racism that they endured day in and day out for many years and they're feeling is that it had been ignored that it was it was falling on deaf ears and one of the issues that many of them raised us. And our interviews was that They felt as though black officers were too often passed over for promotions and were unable to secure positions and leadership. And so some of the black officers that we talked to drew a direct line between The lack of officers in leadership and the response to the protests. You know they're feeling was that if there were more black officers at the higher ranks of the Capitol Police Department that things may have unfolded a little bit differently that the threat from some of the white supremacist groups who led the assault on the Capitol May have been taken more seriously. Had there been more diversity in in those higher ranks. Well, let me also ask our listeners how they're reacting to what they're seeing and what they see as direct lines between what happened. On January 6th and racism in the force. Lack of promotion is you talk about you couldn't join us by calling 8667336786 again. 8667336786. You can also reach us on Twitter or Facebook at KQED Forum or email. Your reactions, your thoughts your questions to forum. At KQED dot or g'kar looking something? Can you just give us a snapshot of how oversight works for the Capitol Police force? Because, of course, this different from the D C. Police Force. Congress, As you said, is somebody that is an entity that the officers who were fined the complaints point to as not doing enough? What kind of oversight is there? So there's a couple of congressional oversight committees that that share the duty of sort of regulating that office. And that's the oversight committee. Aziz well as interim administration committee, and so there have been from time to time. I'm trying to time hearings in which the chiefs of the Capitol Police Department have been brought in to answer questions about security lapses. And things of that nature on there's also an inspector general within the Capitol Police Department and there is a relatively new disciplinary body that had been created, um by Chief Stein and in 2012. All right. But like the rest of Congress the it's not an entity that is subject to the Freedom of Information Act. And so it's really difficult to actually as a member of the public. Get any real insight into you know what happens when The security Lasses go down. One of the things that we reported on was that a number of Capitol police officers had left their guns in the bathroom in the years, 2015 and 2019, and it's really unclear whether you know the extent to which those officers Disciplined. Um you know, it looks like there were some discipline. We don't know the extent of it. And, you know, part of the reason for that is because the disciplinary records just aren't available to the public. And you know a lot of police entities. And you may have touched on this. But in terms of civilian oversight bodies does anything like that exists. Besides, you know, Congress has oversight. No, does not. And I'm glad you brought that up. There are civilian oversight bodies for most Local law enforcement agencies here in the you know, in New York, we have the civilian Complaint Review board. They're similar entities where members of the public can make complaints. About a police department and have them investigated a lot of those lot of the time. Those investigations are unsatisfying for the complainants, but at least they do exist. There is nothing of the kind for the Capitol Police Department. But there have been allegations that the CPD has been pretty aggressive and Enforcing, you know, possession of marijuana laws and things like that, among people who are just near the capital. There's been a lot of people who are frustrated by, you know the way they treat the homeless center in that area. And so there's certainly been a number of occasions where people wanted to complain about the CPD that live around the capital. But having had a a form to do that Well, let me go to collar Gwynn in San Francisco. Hi, Quinn. Hi. I think that they should have paid attention to the chatter that was going on the FBI and the CIA heard And I know that those two groups FBI and CIA group probably in infiltrated those groups like they did. The Black Panthers stood in the sixties, the American Nazi Party and the KKK, So I know those groups have been infiltrated. And they were just willing to take a risk. Also, there was a pandemic played a role in it because you know, during this time of year, there's lots of schools are tourists going there? And it would have been really a mess. If the kids in schools and other tourists have gotten met mixed up in that, and my last comment is I think they're, um, playing with danger. They should just have a virtual inauguration. It wouldn't kill anybody. And it would, um, you know you could have your marching band from Mississippi or Alaska. Participated, and everybody can watch it on TV. I just think that this is too dangerous to have inauguration right now, then, Thanks for sharing those thoughts, Wendy writes. The only people I know in law enforcement are trump supporters. Even now, I have no idea if they are, if they are or could be insurrectionist, But how do we go about Purging pro insurrectionists or suspending them from the forces. I mean, this is a question walking SAPIEN. That is really something that as we heard Missy Ryan, describing earlier local police as well as military the department of Defense is trying to deal with right now. I mean, do you feel like there is attention being paid to that and that there are Strategies that that are effective that people are aware of in using Yeah..

"That that that right there showed the world how vulnerable our capital buildings are. It was it was truly It was truly a failure of the Capitol police, which is run by lawmakers themselves. They're not trained for that. Don't you agree? No, I don't agree. I think they are You kidding me? Capitol Police not trained for any kind of protest Blaze. It's the epicenter of protest. Waiting. Well, not for a breach of the capital. I don't think together me. Listen to me. I'm not. I'm not calling you ignorant. I'm just saying, Let's think for a minute. Absolutely. Capitol Police have resource is at their hands to stop that crowd They could have, but they were not prepared at that particular moment. Okay? And you obviously know more than I do, but I'm still concerned about the ones that lost their jobs. They resigned. They resigned though they did. Yeah, I know. They resigned because they feel they feel badly for what happened. They don't feel good about it, You know, But I guess my point is You know, I'm a well Yeah. I'm a well armed woman and I would shoot if I had to. But I don't know if I would fire on In that situation. Maybe not. You're not. You're not a trained police officer. Now. I'm not God either. I'm not sure what I would do either Libya. I hear what you're saying. I just don't buy it. I just think that Capitol police could have Dunmore should have Dunmore and everybody on both sides of the yacht. Even the law enforcement community say this for some reason. They just didn't have the Reese and this is this. This is the, uh you know, this is the strange side of it. For some reason, they didn't expect this kind of thing to happen. I was going to say I mean, they should have been. Maybe that should have been more ready. I'm just wondering Did did anybody I think there was already chatter about something happening. Did anybody anticipate these kinds of numbers storming the Capitol, though, would they did? I'm just putting myself in their shoes. Just talk of getting together on January. The sixth began in a few weeks ago. Get really began after the Supreme Court said No. We're not gonna look at these eyes and I saw it all over social meeting be their January the sixth Stop the steel Save America and, uh, Yeah, um They knew there was gonna be big crowds. I think they could anticipate they would have anticipated that big crowds would show up. And as you said, the perfect the preferable, preferable, preferable preferable, however you say it situation would have been that there were outside just Yellen rollout and maybe they were prepared enough for that. I don't know. I don't know. The capital point anticipated this well the camera, the FBI and the National Guard they anticipated because they offered help, and Capitol police turned it now. Just prior to the siege. There was I have a feeling that they were thinking that police chief the Capitol police chief, I can't think of his name right now may have been thinking the way you were earlier this week when you said, I don't think Trump supporters would get violent. You said that earlier. Sure is hell did. Yeah, I said it when they were boarding up windows to get in the guard Ready? You said that there's no need for that. Well, Right? Doesn't right. I did not see this. I did not see this happening in a million. I could not imagine this. This possibility never crossed my mind gathering in massive numbers outside the capital. Absolutely, but but the links it went now high techs to do that night And I said, Well, I guess I was wrong on that deal. It doesn't take much. There's a big crowd of people like that. It doesn't take much to get it going wrong. It only takes one agitator to really inflame something and get out of hand. And also, it's just total chaos. People suddenly think they have permission, and that's and that's why I think it's so important to find out exactly who those people are My name by name. Recognized by their pictures. Find out exactly who they are, where they're from where they're You know what they're up to that sort of thing..

DC's mayor, Muriel Bowser, speaking moments ago, is calling yesterday's rioters at the Capitol domestic terrorists and she had some harsh words as well. President Trump. We know that the current president must be held accountable, but this unprecedented attack on our democracy. What happened yesterday is what he wanted to happen. And we must not underestimate the damage he going to to our nation and our democracy over the next two weeks, the secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy, says there are some new precautions in place today. At 9 A.m.. This morning, we began erecting a 7 ft, non scalable fence, which will be from constitution independence. And First Avenue. To the in front of the pond right there in front of the Capitol that that road right there, so these personnel and this security measures will be in place. We're no less in the next 30 days. And we'll be keeping all of these support mechanisms in place and constant coordination with Capitol Police PC's police chief Robert Conte says district residents should continue to expect traffic disruptions and large law enforcement presence around the National Mall in the capital. Meantime, the U. S Capitol police chief is defending his department's actions during the rioting, calling his officer's actions heroic. Stephenson, the chief of the U. S. Capitol, police, said the violent attack on the U. S Capitol was unlike any he'd seen in 30 years in law enforcement and despite criticism that rioters were able to breach security Son said in a statement released this morning that there had been a robust plan in place in anticipation of Wednesday's protests that he said turned into criminal riotous behavior, Son said while police worked to secure the capital, police were also responding to reports of two pipe bombs in different locations and a suspicious vehicle.

News the woman who was shot and killed by police yesterday, has now been identified as actually Babbitt, an Air Force veteran who was part of a mob that pushed into the Capitol building. Meantime, the former chief of D. C s police force says the apparent lack of preparedness by Capitol police was in stark contrast to the way police handled the black lives matter. Protests over the summer. Former D. C. Police chief Charles Ramsey said Capitol police failed themselves and the country by not being ready. And when you look at what happened over the summer during a protest with black lives matter and others you saw cops everywhere. Do you think that the fact that most of these people were white changed the police response or at least preparedness for trouble? When you look at what took place and compare the two there's clearly a double standard now whether it was intentional or whether it was accidental, But it's two different approaches. And Ramsey pushed back against comments from President elect Biden and members of Congress that the violent takeover is not who we are exactly what we have become. This is where we are right now. At this point in history log, consistent double you tell, P knows DC's chief legal officer is also sharing his concerns about the differences and police response from this summer to the events at the Capitol. Our federal partners let us down. That's what D C attorney general Karl Racine says about the federal response around the capital that failed to stop rioters from breaking windows and running into the building during an interview on MSNBC, Racine compared that lax response to the one we saw last year when black lives matter was to protest Remember national guards from 20 States. Appeared before the capital and it military gear. Racine put most of the blame on the Trump administration and called on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th amendment and work to remove President Trump from office.

"Down with another office and way are safe, anxious and happy that we couldn't see the TV and see what's going on in the cab. Congressman.

What's your view of the events as a dizzy unfolded from from where you said I was on the house floor. I was one of the people set to speak. And so I was sitting on the house floor. I, uh, First thing I saw was the Capitol police plainclothes Capitol police and supported the speaker. From the chair way, continue with paintings. But few minutes the Capitol police done announced. Cleavon, the health board announced that the doors had been locked in the paper and everybody stay in place. About 10. Minutes later, we were told to put on our gas. And in a few minutes after that the windows of the doors around the house for being shattered on was part tell whether it was gunfire first or whether it was just a blast, breaking it. Appears now it was just blast breaking and the We have a bunch of us got every burning for and started barricading the doors to help it. Capitol police Soon after that, probably about 15 minutes.
