A report by two U.S. Senate committees revealed a series of security breaches prior to the Capitol attack that was reported by former President Donald Trump’s supporter on Jan.
The 127-page report, which includes a transcript of the speech Trump made before the incident – in which he incited his supporters – is the first full analysis of the attack that left several dead, according to information from The Hill newspaper ‘ .
The work summarizes several warnings of violent incidents that have been “badly reported” and largely “ignored” by the leaders of various government agencies. As a result, the Capitol Police were not prepared for the possibility of “clashes” with demonstrators inside and outside the facilities.
Likewise, the analysis of the Rules Committee and the Senate Committee on Government Affairs and National Security blames the bureaucratic delays for removing police officers from some of the senior positions.
Trump supporters stormed the Capitol as Congress held a joint session to ratify Joe Biden’s win in the November 3 presidential election. Former President Donald Trump repeatedly rejected the election result on the grounds that it was a matter of “fraud” without however providing any evidence.
