Capitol Cop Told Friend Where Lawmakers Hid on Jan. 6, Report Says

Source: Daily Beast

Three of six Capitol Police officers facing disciplinary action over their handling of the Jan. 6 insurrection are under scrutiny for allegedly posing for selfies with the alleged rioters, while another is accused of divulging the secure location where lawmakers were evacuated during the chaos. Internal documents obtained by McClatchy News detail the evidence obtained by the police department’s Office of Professional Responsibility in its probe of the officers’ conduct. In one case, the FBI tipped off the police department that one of its officers was shown in a Facebook photo with suspected rioters, according to the report. The unnamed officer later said he’d posed with the suspect because he recognized him as an “alpha male” in the riots and wanted to have the photo to be able to identify him later. The internal documents note, however, that the officer apparently made no attempt to collect the suspect’s information.

Two other cases in which officers face discipline for “conduct unbecoming” also involve selfies. Another disciplinary case involves a special agent in the department’s Protective Services Bureau who is accused of revealing classified information to a friend a week after the deadly riot. The friend, who is not identified in the documents, phoned the FBI’s tip line to alert them to the “concerning statements” allegedly made by the agent when he spoke about where lawmakers were held as Trump supporters stormed the Capitol. “I don’t want to report a friend of 40 years, but he’s says enough concerning statements that I feel like I need to do this... he’s just fallen into this cult and these beliefs,” the friend was quoted as saying.

In addition to the cases of unbecoming conduct, a special agent in the department’s Protective Services Bureau faces disciplinary action on an allegation of improper dissemination of information


The allegation stems from a conversation the officer had with a friend the week after the riot in which he allegedly revealed information about the secure location he helped evacuate lawmakers to during the riot.

The friend, who is referred to as “ANONYMOUS” in the documents, called the FBI tip line to report the conversation and expressed concerns that the agent subscribed to Trump’s election conspiracy theories.

“I don’t want to report a friend of forty years but he’s says enough concerning statements that I feel like I need to do this... he’s just fallen into this cult and these beliefs,” the documents quote the anonymous friend as saying in a subsequent interview with Capitol Police.

The agent denied that he was sympathetic to the cause of the rioters, but he acknowledged that he may have inadvertently shared information about the secure location.

“I can’t say one hundred percent that I didn’t do what you’re telling me I did,” the agent told investigators.

18. Well, maybe. The term "alpha male" comes from research later discredited by the researcher who did

it. He drew conclusions about wolf behavior by studying wolves in captivity. That's like draming conclusions about the roles of humans in civilized society by studying only prisons. I can easily believe that many of the male rioters fir that profile.

3. There was discussion early on about possible "inside help" from RWNJ lawmakers as well as some

Capitol Police. If true, I hope they know who they are and will hold them accountable.

17. Not sure what the gripe is. Tons of names have been revealed, often by Sedition Hunters...

… and others who noticed family members or friends in the crowd shots. People have been doxxed, and as soon as someone is arrested, their name and mug shot get posted.

There were 500 or so Capitol Police on duty 1/6, and they fought valiantly. They were badly understaffed — total number on the force is 2,200. Only 35 were/are under internal investigation. Of these, six (6) have been suspended.

So what dirty little secret do you think is being hidden? One guy who posed for a selfie won’t have a career any more. One guy got turned in by a friend of 40 years — the cop shot off his mouth, and finally the friend chose country over friend-who-turned-nutball.

26. "gripe?" really? thanks for trivializing my opinion

have those sedition hunters released the names of those cops under investigation?
"tons of names" -- including those cops under investigation?

my "gripe" is when dirty cops quit in the nick of time or are fired and go get another job at another police department as if nothing has happened and they take their shit attitude and behavior with them only to continue being an asshole--and basically end up getting away with being exactly who/what they are

because of that i don't think their identities should be protected.

maybe you know if those 29 that are under investigation are still working at the capitol. i do not.
maybe you are aware of their names but i am not.

If we can identify the insurrectionists, surely we can identify these horrid cops, can't we?

28. So I just spoke to the FBI about the dirty Capitol Cops

And all indications are, the FBI (Sedition Hunters) could give a crap as to their identities and citizens rights to know them them as well. If anyone can direct me in how to go about identifying these traitorous cops, I would welcome the advice.

11. I agree, it doesn't matter who he told or for what purpose.

Once this information is released to the public, it poses a threat to national security.

12. Disgusting,

Fire them all, then charge them. Don’t allow them to be employed in any law enforcement field. They can beg Trump to be a security guard at a golf course or something.

thinking of them as their servants.

15. He faces, "disciplinary action"?

DISCIPLINARY ACTION?

He should be fired, and if there's any possible charges that could be leveled against him, do it ASAP.

Dirty rotten bastard!

16. Giving classified information is a fucking felony to anyone that is NOT suppose to have it

Codified at 18 U.S.C. § 798, it prohibits knowingly disclosing “to an unauthorized person,” publishing, or “us[ing] in any manner prejudicial to the safety or interest of the United States or for the benefit of any foreign government to the detriment of the United States” a variety of classified information.

Lock his ass up....

22. Capitol cop selfie was the first observance I experienced on 1/6/21 and I tuned in from the get-go

Please don't tell me that these guys had no idea what was going to transpire. This was shameful!

27. What about the CP officer who moved one of the barricades?

You would think that doing that and waving the insurrectionists toward the Capitol is reason enough to be fired along with the rest of the CP traitors.
