The FBI Knew Trump Supporters Had Capitol Tunnel Maps Before the Jan. 6 Riot

The 99-page report, authored jointly by Republicans and Democrats on the panel, said that Capitol Police knew weeks prior to the Jan. 6 riot that there were legitimate threats including maps of the Capitol tunnel system circulating online. It also said that the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, and Justice Department had their own major failures, and that Capitol police were ill-equipped to deal with hundreds of angry Trump supporters overrunning the Capitol. Neither Blunt nor Rob Portman, the other Republican author of the report, voted to convict Trump on his second impeachment charge. “Neither the USCP, nor the FBI, U.S. Secret Service, Metropolitan Police or our other law enforcement partners knew thousands of rioters were planning to attack the U.S. Capitol. Neither the DHS nor the FBI issued formal intelligence about the potential violence at the Capitol on January 6, according to the report.
