Capitol Riot hearings

Top Capitol law enforcement officials on Tuesday said they did not see intelligence from the FBI the night before the U.S. Capitol riot that warned of calls for violence online and said groups were “preparing for war.”

Under questioning from Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., the chair of one of the panels leading the hearing, former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund said the report was received at Capitol Police headquarters the night before the Jan. 6 riot, but leadership did not see it.

The officials previously faulted intelligence failures at the federal level for not forecasting the escalation of violence at the riot. Former House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving, the House’s top law enforcement officer, said the U.S. Capitol Police’s intelligence compiled from federal reports did not “forecast a coordinated assault” on the Capitol as had happened during the riot.
