White supremacists involved in Capitol attack, says security witnesses

Washington: Four law enforcement and security officers who were on duty during the Jan. 6 mob attack at the U.S. Capitol testified in Congress Tuesday and revealed a portrait of several failures that allowed the assault to occur and cause several deaths.

Former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, Washington, D.C., Metro Police Chief Robert Contee, former House sergeant-at-arms Paul Irving and former Senate sergeant-at-arms Michael Stenger appeared before a joint hearing of the Senate homeland security and rules committees.

The event is the first public hearing to examine the Capitol attack, which was organized and led by radical supporters of former President Donald Trump to disrupt Congress’ certification of President Joe Biden’s electoral win.

Lawmakers called for the hearing to find out about what intelligence existed before Jan. 6 to indicate that an attack was coming, what steps were taken to prepare for possible violence and why it took so long to call in the National Guard.
