We Haven’t Heard From Capitol Police Because Their Story is Too Painful
On January sixth of this year, a mob of Donald Trump advocates stormed the United States Capitol and overwhelmed the cops who secure the structure. In spite of the truth that numerous brought cops supporting flags, the insurrectionists were more than delighted to assault officers that got in their method.
Officer Brian Sicknick passed away that day. Following the attacks, 2 more Capitol law enforcement officers have actually devoted suicide. However still, there has actually been little word about the event from the body.
Nicolle Wallace discussed the silence with former FBI official Frank Figliuzzi on Wednesday. She asked, “We heard the House impeachment managers tell the most detailed version of their story that day, but we still have not heard from Capitol Police?”
Figliuzzi responded, “There’s an overriding historical reason why people don’t tell their story. Our institutions choose not to tell their story. It’s because even they don’t like their story. I’m concerned that we’re not hearing from these agencies because the truth is too painful even for them, and I think it’s going to be the independent commission that finally gets to the bottom of this, if we can even assemble an effective commission.”
The former FBI official continued:
“There’s a reason why we aren’t getting regular press conferences, why we aren’t seeing lengthy testimony as is scheduled, hopefully, for next week as we start to hear the story. But the reason why they’re not voluntarily coming forward, Nicolle — I fear the story is ugly, even for them.”
