  1. The only "good" thing about this hearing is that it wasn't as long and fruitless as the Senate hearing that I watched. This woman should "NEVER" be made to be the full time chief! She seems to dodge even the softball questions these House member were asking her and she is very lucky I wasn't one of the people asking her questions, because she would really be having a problem with her mike if that were the case. I just wish for one time in the gathering of facts in this case that I could write the questions to be asked to the witnesses because the House members did everything they could to keep from asking the "REAL" questions. And if any of their staffs are watching, feel free to use my questions for your next hearing. One important thing did come out of this hearing that was never mentioned in the Senate hearing and that was the number of Capitol police that were on duty the day of Jan. 6th. According to the "acting" police chief, there were around one thousand Police at the Capitol building that day and prior to that, the grounds and the inside of the Building were swept with trained explosive K-9 unites. And yet when I watch the "altered" video of the House Managers in the impeachment trial, I didn't see one dog "anywhere", inside or out. So I guess my first question would be if you knew in advance that you were going to have groups of people coming to the Capitol building to voice their concerns about the results of the election, and you had intelligence that they may be armed and ready to cause some kind of disturbance, why wouldn't you 1. call up the national guard and 2. have "ALL" of your K-9 unites working there both inside and outside for crowd control? My next question would be: if there were around one thousand police officers there on the 6th, "where were they"? From what I saw people were entering the building though one window/ door that these "rioters" were just "allowed" to break in and enter. If she was telling the truth and there were that many police there how were a couple hundred people/ paid actors able to even get to the doors and windows in the first place? My next question would be how were these rioters allowed to just walk around with security acting as escort like they were on some guided tour? And why weren't these people being gunned down as they "illegally" entered through the broken door/ window? You had the top three people in line to be POTUS in that building at the same time and security inside didn't know what to do to protect our highest ranking government officials? Someone is trying to cover their own backside with throwing these two nobodies under the bus. The facts will come out and it won't just be so this never happens again, people need to go to jail over this and I'm not just talking to the people who were dumb enough to enter the building that day. We need to have a hearing with the police and security inside to find out how these people were able to get near the entrance to were they broke in. I have a lot of other questions, but this is just for starters… I guarantee you, if you bring those people in and start asking them "real" questions, somebody is going to save their own butts and tell what really happened that day…

  2. GOOGLE THIS: Estimates: George Floyd Riots To Cost 66 Times More Than Capitol Damage

  3. LONG AND SHORT TERM LESSONS SHOULD BE GOOD OLE COMMON SENSE AND LOYALTY. SOMEONE DIDN’T WANT TO PREVENT THE INCIDENT. THE TOP SUSPECT WOULD BE THE PERSON WHO DENIED THE REQUEST PRIOR TO THE REQUEST FOR ADDITIONAL HELP THE DAY BEFORE. ANTIFA AND BLM WERE THERE AS WELL.

  4. COMPLETE BS….COMMON SENSE ANYONE??? NONE OF THE OFFICERS SHOULD BE SUSPENDED. THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ADDITIONAL HELP SHOULD HAVE BEEN MADE BY UPPER COMMAND STAFF. THOSE OFFICER LIVES WERE PLACED IN DANGER BY NOT HAVING A SENSIBLE NUMBER OF OFFICERS TO CONTROL A CROWD OF THAT SIZE. THIS IS LUDICROUS AND WAS DONE INTENTIONALLY. SOMEONE DIDN’T WANT ENOUGH OFFICERS ON THE SCENE TO PREVENT THE INCIDENT. FIND OUT WHO THAT PERSON IS AND WHY?

  5. and the reason this happened…. is free to do it again. we are a failure

  6. The wretched utensil microcephaly guard because employer hisologically grate minus a high-pitched clam. enthusiastic, envious danger

  7. Making money on crypto assets especially on Bitcoins has been really difficult for me, I've lost a lot of money to the bitcoin market, I really need help making money on bitcoins, can anyone help ?

  8. plenty of time and money for 50 witch hunts
    can't hear the election fraud though

  9. Stop wasting time. Cut us a stimulus check.

  10. The President and the Vice President could have called for help right from the start. They failed miserably.

  11. Why no hearing on the REAL threat of ANTIFA AND BLM BURN LOOT MURDER who killed over 40 people? Its just politics and right now Democrats are in charge!

  12. They are getting to the bottom of nothing very slowly ….

  13. It was the Speakers fault… Period…. Both beginning speakers are totally useless… Please shut up and get a real job… Thank you.

  14. Why was there more security at the local mall than our nation's capitol ?? Someone dropped the ball people…

  15. The CIA entitles the report to the police department and the report is sent to whomever they need to protect and procedure to authorized Authority and protection

  16. How many arrested, charged, how many weapons and guns confiscated ?? How many shots were fired ?? No answers….no questions by MSM …

  17. Thornton Fractional report is a fraction report that determines what the CIA or Public Authority is entitled to do within the police department when they work together as one

  18. Total waste of time … where are the hearings on Billionz of dollars in businesses looted and burned 🔥 in cities all over the country during riots ???. No questions no accountability… this is a nothing story … fake ..carried out by small group of lame folks 😒
