(Luis Cornelio, Headline USA) Former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund leveled explosive allegations about a potential cover-up and law enforcement mishaps linked to the January 6th Capitol riots in a shocking interview with popular host Tucker Carlson.
Carlson, who now hosts his own podcast on X (formerly known as Twitter) questioned if those on a key call withheld crucial threat details from Sund. His response was astonishing: “We know for a fact… I’m not the only chief that was in the dark.”
Sund revealed that high-ranking officials, like Robert Conte, head of DC’s Police Department, were also uninformed about critical intelligence, painting a disturbing picture of potential miscommunication among law enforcement.
The bombshells kept coming as Sund discussed unshared information. He highlighted numerous emails forewarning FBI’s Steve D’Antuono about Capitol violence, but the looming danger wasn’t mentioned in their Tuesday video call. Carlson emphasized, “That just does not make sense.”
A shocking twist emerged with Sund’s revelation about the military’s concerns. “Acting Secretary of Defense [Mark] Miller and General [Mark] Milley had discussed locking down the city of Washington, D.C. because they were so worried about violence at the Capitol on January 6,” Sund asserted. He exposed a perplexing detail: the potential lockdown and permit revocation were not conveyed to Capitol Police—Sund issued those permits.
In another revealing tidbit, Sund hinted at federal involvement amidst the rioters. He suggested, “18 or 19 domestic terrorists coming to this event, so of course they’re going to have resources and they’re not going to just put in one agent. You’re going to have multiple,” implying federal agents might have played a concealed role.
These revelations raised urgent questions about transparency and collaboration within security entities before the Capitol breach. Sund’s assertion that vital threat information was potentially withheld has ignited a firestorm within the prominent conservative voices.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., took to Twitter to voice her concerns over the allegations brought forward by Sund. “Steven Sund’s testimony must be heard in congressional committees,” she said. “People are rotting in jail and more continued to be arrested but over 95% of BLM violent rioters charges were dropped.”
Collin Rugg, co-owner of Trending Politics, echoed Greene’s remarks, saying, “It’s almost as if they wanted J6 to happen…”
