Police did not clear Lafayette Park area so Trump could hold 'Bible' photo op: Watchdog

Source: ABC News

U.S. Park Police did not clear Lafayette Park and the nearby area of protesters on June 1, 2020, so President Donald Trump could walk from the White House over to St. Johnís Church, but learned of his interest in surveying the site hours after they already had begun planning to clear the area to put up new fencing, according to a new watchdog report.

The Interior Departmentís inspector general did not determine whether law enforcement acted inappropriately against demonstrators last year and did not focus on individual incidents of police use of force, but found that poor communication between agencies and ineffective dispersal warnings "may have contributed to confusion during the operation and the use of tactics that appeared inconsistent" with initial plans.

7. "Official's name is redacted & SS was not interviewed" ok then!





"Interesting conclusion given that the IG does not interview the Secret Service and the name of the official who ordered the clearing of the park is redacted."

"And shortly after the area was cleared, Trump looked out the window, saw the cleared space, and decided to go for a stroll with his upside down bible."

Holding a Bible upside down.

I saw it with my lying eyes people being brutalized, tear gassed and shoved aside by advancing cops! An Australian reporter was being filmed saying they were being tear gassed and brutalized by police while on a live stream shown in Australia!!!!!!

29. Brutalizing citizens acting lawfully just so Tubby coule waddle down the empty street

is just as bad, if not worse. They're not making this any better for him.

The whole thing was absolutely despicable.

37. Just like the traitor attack warnings on Jan.6th weren't passed along

to the police rank and file.

How do I know it's a lie? Because we saw the coverage on tv. We are aware that traitor had his henchmen in place to beat Democracy to a pulp. They got close. TG for the Capitol Police.
