Ohio Dem Blasts Republicans Opposing Jan. 6 Fee for Not ‘Residing in Actuality’ (Video)

While the House debates a bill to set up a September 11th-style commission to investigate the events of the January 6th insurrection, some members of the US Capitol Police (USCP) have just issued a damning letter in which They attack the House minority Republican leader Kevin McCarthy and the Senate The minority Republican leader Mitch McConnell has been very public and very strongly against the commission.

The letter, which was not signed by any officer on the requirement that he “remain neutral and do our work with honor and integrity,” criticized members of Congress who opposed the commission, saying that it was “regrettable that our” Chefs “(Congress) are not detained by the same standard. “

The letter seems to indicate that the USCP blames Republicans, Trump supporters or Trump himself for the deadly uprising.

It is also said that it is “inconceivable that some of the members we protect should downplay the events of January 6th”.

“On January 6th, when some officers were spending their last day in the US Capitol Police uniform and not volunteering, we would hope that members we swore to protect would at least support an investigation to get to the bottom of EVERYONE responsible and hold them 100 percent accountable, regardless of what title they hold or have held. “

The January 6 events also resulted in 138 officers injured: “73 from the Capitol Police and 65 from the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington,” according to the New York Times.

The number of injuries does not explain the dozen, if not hundreds, of officials law enforcement officers estimate will suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder in the years to come, and the dozen most likely to have contracted the coronavirus from exposed Trump supporters. who overrun the Capitol, said the experts and officials.
