Four Capitol Police Officers Testify About Their Experience On Jan. 6
There is no word yet on when the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol will hold their next hearing.
During the first hearing on Tuesday, four officers who defended the Capitol gave emotional testimonies.
All of the officers said they feared for their life.
One said he heard a rioter yell “get his gun and kill him with his own gun.”
The officers urged the committee to place blame on former President Trump, who they say encouraged rioters to storm the capitol. They say the rioters told officers “Trump sent us.”
So far, 540 people have been arrested in connection to the riot at the U.S. Capitol.
