Two members of the Capitol police were suspended on Monday for their behavior during Wednesday’s pro-Trump riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Democratic congressman Rep. Tim Ryan who chairs one of the committees that oversees the federal law enforcement agency, told reporters that one of the Capitol police officers took a selfie with someone who was part of the mob and the other wore a “Make America Great Again” hat and started directing people around the building.
“The Capitol Police are looking at everybody involved that potentially facilitated, on a big level or small level in any way, and it’s important that they’re cracking down on that,” Ryan told reporters Monday.
A third member of law enforcement was arrested. Rep. Ryan said more information about the arrest will be provided later. Another 10-15 officers are being investigated, but he couldn’t provide details on the extent of those investigations.
Five people died in connection to Wednesday’s riots including Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick who was hit in the head with a fire extinguisher. Other videos show the MAGA mob dragging an officer down the steps of the Capitol and beating him with a flag pole.
