“…[The Capitol policeman] sent the person a message telling them that he was an officer with the police force who ‘agrees with your political stance’, an indictment against him says.”
“WASHINGTON (AP) — A U.S. Capitol Police officer has been indicted on obstruction of justice charges after prosecutors say he helped to hide evidence of a rioter’s involvement in the Jan. 6 insurrection.
“The officer, Michael A. Riley, is accused of tipping off someone who participated in the riot by telling them to remove posts from Facebook that had showed the person inside the Capitol during the Jan. 6 attack, according to court documents.”
Is this the sort of officers who guard the country and defend the nation? No wonder the rioters were able to breach security and enter the U.S. Capitol so easily! I wonder how many other police officers “agree with the views” of the January 6 terrorists? And what about the military? Are there traitors in the armed services as well? Sworn to uphold the law and the Constitution, only to betray it! They call themselves patriots but break faith with everything America stands for!
