Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) demanded answers Friday after a video emerged on social media that seemingly depicts Capitol Police opening the doors to pro-Trump protesters and allowing them to ascend the steps to the Rotunda.
Tweeting out the video from OAN reporter Christina Bobb, Roy said, “We need answers from the Capitol Police and Congressional leadership. Now.”
The video shows demonstrators entering the Capitol, going through the hallway, and making their way up the stairs as alarms sound and officers stand aside.
The Capitol Police are under intense scrutiny after apparent Trump supporters sieged the complex Wednesday and got inside for about four hours, breaching both the House and Senate chambers.
The Department of Justice has warned that the intruders who stole computers and documents could also have snatched some national security secrets.
Several security officials at the Capitol have resigned after lawmakers publicly called for them to step down following the unprecedented security breach.
Many have blamed President Donald Trump for riling up the crowd with a speech in front of the White House, shortly before the mob made its way down the National Mall to the Capitol. Trump released a statement that called for order.
