Several U.S. Capitol Police officers have been suspended for actions during the Capitol insurrection, according to Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman.
Pittman made the announcement just hours after Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), who oversees the subcommittee that funds the department, said one officer who was suspended took a selfie with rioters, and another was allegedly seen wearing a MAGA hat and directing rioters while on duty during the mob break-in.
An additional 10-15 officers from the Capitol Police are under investigation over their role in the insurrection, per Ryan.
U.S. Capitol Police were reportedly investigating the role of 35 officers during the January 6 riot.
