Former Chief of Capitol Hill Police, Steven Sund, claims prior knowledge from Milley and Pelosi, while Trump alleges intentional inaction leading to his resignation.

Accusations of a Cover-Up

  • Steven Sund, former Chief of the Capitol Hill Police, made claims about the Jan. 6 occurrences in a non-broadcasted interview with Tucker Carlson, ex-Fox News anchor.
  • Sund expressed belief that Mark Milley, Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Nancy Pelosi, then-House Speaker, had prior knowledge of the Jan. 6 events but did not communicate it, leading to an alleged cover-up afterward.

“Everything appears to be a cover-up,” Sund told Carlson. “I’m not a conspiracy theorist … but when you look at the information and intelligence they had, the military had, it’s all watered down. I’m not getting intelligence, I’m denied any support from National Guard in advance. I’m denied National Guard while we’re under attack, for 71 minutes …”

  • Trump has repeatedly alleged that Pelosi and others intentionally refrained from calling in law enforcement to handle the protest, implying she was orchestrating a setup for Trump protestors.

“Could there possibly be actually … they kind of wanted something to happen? It’s not a far stretch to begin to think that. It’s sad when you start putting everything together and thinking about the way this played out … what was their end goal?”

Sund’s Observations and Resignation

  • Sund claimed that he lacked access to crucial information and intelligence, and he did not receive any prior assistance from the National Guard despite the available resources.
  • Following the disturbances, Sund resigned from his position as Chief of the Capitol Police.
  • Sund had a long career spanning over three decades, serving as the Capitol Police’s chief from 2019 until his departure.
