Former Capitol security officials testify at Senate hearing on January 6 riot

CBS, 24 Feb 2021
The Senate Homeland Security Committee and the Rules and Administration Committee are holding a joint hearing on the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Senators will question the top two Capitol security officials who resigned after the riot: former Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Michael Stenger and former House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving. Former chief of the U.S. Capitol Police, Steven Sund, who also resigned after the attack, and the acting chief of the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, Robert Contee, will also testify.

Five people died on January 6 when a mob of Trump supporters stormed the building while lawmakers were counting the Electoral College votes from the 2020 presidential election.
