The U.S. Capitol Police has recommended six officers to take disciplinary action for their actions during the January 6 riots at the Capitol, the department said in a statement late Saturday. The announcement comes as law enforcement officials prepare for potential unrest during the “Justice for J6” march planned for September 18 near the Capitol. On January 6, Capitol police were unable to prevent a mob of former President Donald Trump’s supporters from violating the Capitol two weeks before Joe Biden’s inauguration as president. Trump contested the results despite the lack of evidence of election fraud, and the department said in a statement that the Capitol Police Office of Professional Responsibility launched 38 internal investigations based on complaints from the January rally and was able to identify 26 of the officers involved. In 20 of the cases, it said no wrongdoing was found, the statement said, “The six ongoing cases must not diminish the heroic efforts of United States Capitol Police officers.” “On January 6, the courage and courage shown by the vast majority of our employees was inspiring.” Cases against 17 people charged on January 6 in the Capitol riots are pending after the attorney’s disappearance. Some of the complaints do not contain enough information to identify the accused officer. Disciplinary actions include three for improper behavior and one each for non-compliance with directions, inappropriate remarks and improper dissemination of information. No names or other details were revealed. It was not immediately clear if all the disciplinary actions involved different officers, no details were disclosed about the discipline they face, and police said another case involving an official accused of unsatisfactory performance and inappropriate behavior is still pending. Capitol Police internal investigations, including any recommended disciplinary actions, as well as personnel matters, are not public information, as the Department of Justice, using dozens of video evidence showing chaos and attacks against police, has indicted more than 500 people connected to the case. . Riots. Many accused of assaulting police officers, experts: FBI has plenty of ways to find the suspect in the January 6 riots from Florida, several accused found, including members and participants of two prominent extremist groups, the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers deals with prosecutors. A woman was killed trying to enter the Capitol through a window by a Capitol police officer. The Justice Department announced in April that no charges would be brought against the officer, and Matt Brainard, a former Trump employee who organizes the September 18 rally, said the protest would be peaceful and that members of Congress were invited to speak. Rallies will also be held in 13 state capitals, Brainard said on Twitter on Saturday, “This bogus narrative of rebellion will not be defeated by being ignored.” “Help us pay and claim #justiceforj6 at the US Capitol on September 18th.” The Capitol Police said every available officer will be on duty that day, and the Washington Metropolitan Police Department will also be involved in security. “We are closely monitoring September 18. Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger said.” After January 6, we made department-wide changes to the way we collect and share information internally and externally. I am confident that the work we are doing now will ensure that our officers have what they need to keep everyone safe.”
