Emails Prove Capitol Police Received Violent Threats Before Jan. 6 — They Still Did Nothing


New information adds to the skyscraper of evidence that the Capitol Police closed its collective eyes to multiple warnings in the days before the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion. Documents obtained by the left-leaning Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington through a Freedom of Information Act request highlighted warnings that came from the Secret Service, Politico reported Wednesday. “On January 6th, our democracy was attacked, but we still know little of how it happened and what was done to protect the government,” said Jordan Libowitz, a spokesperson for the organization. “These emails give a further look into the knowledge the Secret Service had in the lead up to the riot and show just how important it is for a thorough Congressional investigation to bring the truth to light.” A Jan. 5 warning from the Secret Service indicated that it knew some of those coming to Washington for a Jan. 6 rally had more than protesting in their minds. “Per our Denver Field Office, a concerned citizen reported that [REDACTED] were flying into BWI today to attend tomorrow’s rally and ‘incite violence,’” one email from the agency read.
