"Our Office of Professional Responsibility is investigating the actions of 35 police officers from that day," spokesman John Stolnis told FOX 5 of Washington, D.C. "Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman has directed that any member of her department whose behavior is not in keeping with the Department’s Rules of Conduct will face appropriate discipline."
Stolnis didn’t specify what allegations led to the suspensions or why the officers were being investigated.
A few officers have been accused of allowing the rioters to breach the Capitol with no pushback - despite the many outnumbered officers who struggled to keep them out - and at least two rioters have told the FBI an officer said to them, "This is your house now" when rioters smashed their way in the building, FOX 5 reported.

This situation could had been more catastrophic than what it was in terms of police and/or civilian loss of life.

Ole Nancy is under pressure now. Judicial Watch has taken to court that they are requesting emails between the capital police and Pelosi's office that they were refused. Who told the capital police to stand down and who refused to call in additional support? It has already come out that the FBI had warned well before the event that trouble was coming and yet no one seemed to act on it. Who gave the stand down orders?
