Former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund wrote an eight-page letter detailing the events that occurred on Jan. 6 to Ms. Pelosi. The timeline of events seem to directly refute the Democrats’ claim that the event on Capitol Hill was incited by President Trump.

Chief Sunds adds that many in the crowd who overtook the Capitol “were wearing radio earpieces indicating a high level of coordination” while others carried “weapons, chemicals, explosives and climbing gear.” These words call into question the statements that the attack was spontaneous and caused by Trump’s speech.

Sunds’ letter states the crowd of coordinated attackers breached the Capitol security at 12:52 p.m., notable because Trump did not conclude his speech until about 1:13 p.m. making it impossible that the group who breached the Capitol did so under the president’s direction. The speech was given about 20-30 minutes walking distance from the Capitol.

I noted in the Feb. 16 paper that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is going to have an investigation of the event. I certainly hope so, and the truth will come out for a change about what really happened that day. My source is the Epoch Times online and maybe the true agitators will be revealed.
