Capitol Police Officers Suspended For Actions During Rioters' Attack On Capitol
Two Capitol Police officers have been suspended in connection with last week's fatal riot at the Capitol by protesters loyal to President Trump, Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, said.
One of suspended officers took a selfie with a rioter. The other donned a MAGA hat and "started directing people around," Ryan said.
Ryan chairs the House subcommittee that is investigating the police response to last week's riot. He also said that about 10-15 other Capitol Police officers were under investigation. He provided no specifics.
