On January 6 of this year, a crowd of Donald Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol and overpowered the police protecting the building. Despite the fact that many carried flags of support from the police, the insurgents were more than happy to attack officers who stood in their way.
Officer Brian Sicknick died that day. Two other Capitol police officers committed suicide after the attacks. Even so, the body said little about the incident.
Nicolle Wallace spoke to former FBI agent Frank Figliuzzi about the silence on Wednesday. She asked: “W.We heard the impeachment executives of the House told the most detailed version of their story that day, but we still haven’t heard from the Capitol Police? “
Figliuzzi replied: “T.Here is an overarching historical reason people don’t tell their story. Our institutions don’t tell their story. It’s because even they don’t like their story. I worry we are not hearing from these agencies because the truth itself is too painful for them, and I think it will be the independent commission that will finally get to the bottom of this, if we can put together an effective commission at all . ”
The former FBI officer continued:
“There’s a reason we don’t get regular press conferences, why we don’t see lengthy statements like those hopefully planned for next week when we start hearing the story. But the reason they don’t volunteer, Nicolle – I’m afraid the story is ugly even for them. “
