WASHINGTON - Committee on House Administration Subcommittee on Oversight Chairman Barry Loudermilk (GA-11) sent letters to the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) and the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) requesting more information related to the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.
"As the subcommittee continues reviewing the security failures leading up to and on January 6th, we've determined that we may not possess all relevant information and documentation that is pertinent to our investigation," said Chairman Loudermilk.
"We know that MPD and federal law enforcement agencies had plain-clothes officers at the Capitol that day, but we do not know why. We also know that there were serious intelligence failures by Capitol Police leadership before and on January 6th. Additionally, we're finding gaps in information provided to us by the former January 6th Select Committee. For example, the January 6th Select Committee published a redacted letter to Special Counsel to President Joe Biden, Richard Sauber, but did not provide that letter to our subcommittee, as required by House Rules."
