Six Capitol Police officers suspended, 29 under investigation for actions during Capitol riot(*29*)

The U.S. Capitol Police has suspended six officers with pay and one other 29 are under investigation for their actions in response to the lethal Jan. 6 riot on the Capitol.

In a press release, the division confirmed that the Capitol Police’s Office of Professional Responsibility is investigating the officers.

“Acting Chief Yoganada Pittman directed that any member of her department whose behavior is not in keeping with the Department’s Rules of Conduct will face appropriate discipline,” the assertion stated.

In January, a number of information retailers — together with The Washington Times —  reported that “several” Capitol Police officers have been suspended and at the very least 10 extra have been under investigation after a mob violently stormed the Capitol following a rally protesting former President Donald Trump’s loss within the November election.

Ms. Pittman stated on the time video and different proof uncovered during an inside probe appeared to point out officers violating division insurance policies.

Rep. Tim Ryan, Ohio Democrat and chair of one of many committees that oversee the Capitol Police, advised reporters final month that one of many suspended officers appeared to have taken a selfie with the rioters.

Another officer was suspended after he was seen sporting a “Make America Great Again” hat and ordering folks contained in the constructing.

CNN reported Thursday that investigators are wanting by way of officers’ social media posts and allegations that officers have been concerned within the riot.

Ms. Pittman changed former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, who resigned within the aftermath of the riot.
