An unidentified US Capitol Police officer directed "all outside units" to ignore pro-Trump rioters and instead go after "anti pro-Trump" protestors, according to a newly released Congressional investigation.
Rep. Zoe Lofgren described the radio broadcast, the existence of which was not previously known, during a House Administration Committee hearing on security failures around the January 6 attack. In that transmission, the officer said: "Attention all units on the field, we're not looking for any pro-Trump in the crowd. We're only looking for any anti pro-Trump who want to start a fight," according to Lofgren, a California Democrat.
A Capitol Police spokesman told CNN that the officer who gave the order is not being investigated.
