Stand Down Order on Jan 6th, Confirmed By New York Times, CNN And The Hill

The Media’s narrative that supporters of President Donald J. Trump had an insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6th, has taken many blows, but the final knock out may be from The New York Times who has confirmed that a “Stand Down Order” was given to Capitol Police on January 6, ending speculation about the concerns of law enforcement at the time in the area.

“Capitol Police Told to Hold Back on Riot Response on Jan. 6, Report Finds,” The New York Times wrote about the events on January 6th, proving that the events were planned ahead of time and were not a reaction to anything President Trump said on that day.


“The Capitol Police had clearer advance warnings about the Jan. 6 attack than were previously known. But officers were instructed by their leaders not to use their most aggressive tactics to hold off the mob, according to a watchdog report,” they reported.

Becker news reported:

“The New York Times has finally confirmed what many political observers had been saying all along about the Capitol riots: It was pre-planned, the Capitol Police knew it was coming, and authorities effectively gave a ‘stand down’ order.

A new 104-page report dropped by an internal investigator shreds authorities for intentionally hampering the police response on what has subsequently been claimed was a “coup,” an “insurrection,” and an attempt to “overturn” the results of the 2020 election.

The Inspector General of the Capitol Police laid bare all of the disturbing issues involved with the way the January 6th Electoral College security was mishandled.”

In the report, the inspector general, Michael A. Bolton, criticized the way the Capitol Police prepared for and responded to the mob violence on Jan. 6. The report was reviewed by The New York Times and will be the subject of a Capitol Hill hearing Thursday.

Bolton’s findings are scheduled to be discussed Thursday afternoon, when he is scheduled to testify before the House Administration Committee. He has issued two investigative reports — both classified as “law enforcement sensitive” and not publicly released — about the agency’s shortcomings on Jan. 6. He is also planning a third report.

The news came at the same time it was announced that the officer who is unknown to Americans, who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt, a veteran, and a supporter of Trump’s would not be changed in her death.

The Hill reported:

In the 104-page document, which has not yet been widely released to the public, Bolton reportedly added that the Capitol Police’s Civil Disturbance Unit, which is specifically responsible for handling large protests, was ordered by supervisors not to use the department’s most powerful tools and techniques, according to the Times.

Bolton noted that “heavier, less-lethal weapons,” including stun grenades, “were not used that day because of orders from leadership,” even though officials who responded to the rioting later told Bolton that these tools would have helped police “push back the rioters.

Bolton’s office previously said in a report first obtained by CBS News earlier this month that the Capitol Police had severe “deficiencies” in the agency’s handling of intelligence in the lead-up to the Jan. 6 attack, including not passing along “relevant information from outside sources” warning of violence.

Last week, CNN reported that the inspector general had found that the Capitol Police force was supplied with aging equipment and failed to follow up on additional intelligence ahead of the attack.
