This news story has been around for a few days, but it's just
now starting to be reported by most of the major media.

Headline: "Capitol Police whistleblower accuses leadership of
failures on Jan. 6"

[excerpt] In a letter first obtained by Politico sent to congressional
leaders, an anonymous whistleblower makes claims against
Sean Gallagher, the Capitol Police’s acting chief of uniformed
operations, and Yogananda Pittman, its assistant chief of police
for protective and intelligence operations.

Specifically, the whistleblower accused Gallagher and Pittman of
inadequate action on Jan. 6 and of lying to Congress. [end excerpt]

The whistleblower says the two senior officials failed to do their
jobs:

[excerpt] The whistleblower, whom Politico identifies as a man
who was also a senior official on duty on Jan. 6, claimed that
Pittman lied to Congress about an intelligence report to Capitol
Police before the incident.

In April, Pittman said that a group of senior officials were aware
of the report preceding the attack, but the whistleblower alleged
this was inaccurate and added that the report was never distributed
to command staff, according to Politico.

The letter also claimed other "game changing information" was
never distributed, including information that the groups with
demonstration permits around the Capitol on Jan. 6 were "all
facades for Stop the Steal," a conspiracy movement that alleged
the election was stolen from Trump.

The whistleblower also wrote that he was in the Capitol Police’s
Command Center with Pittman and Gallagher during the attack
but said the two officials did little to attempt to control the riot.

"What I observed was them mostly sitting there, blankly looking
at the TV screens showing real time footage of officers and
officials fighting for the Congress and their lives," the
whistleblower wrote. [end excerpt]

Then, after it was all over, congressional leaders (as in Pelosi
and Schumer) allowed those two officials to remain in their
jobs, as the whistleblower wrote in the excerpt below:

[excerpt] "It is immensely embarrassing to the congressional
leadership and staff that they selected the two individuals most
responsible for the 6th to lead the Department after the 6th," he
said in his letter. "Especially since some entity selected them
without any investigation. To hold them accountable would require
this same group to admit they were wrong." [end excerpt]

So the two senior officials who failed to distribute the proper
intelligence reports before January 6, and failed to ask for
National Guard help or for other agencies to help; then sat
there watching it all go down on TV while doing very little
about it, and then lied to Congress about all of it, are
rewarded by their superiors (as in Pelosi and Schumer)
rather than disciplined for their failures.

Such is the ways of the swamp, aka the DC establishment.
What the hell has happened to this country?

It's over. They won. And it's not so bad for us. I mean, they got the lunatic
left to flip from burning down our cities to crying for the heads of protestors.

It worked.

And all it cost us was some smears on a bunch of people the entire media
had been smearing for a solid year... four years, more like it.

Small price to pay.

Sure any success emboldens the 1%, guarantees that they'll keep trampling
us, but for the moment it's not so bad.
