A spokesperson for the U.S. Capitol Police has confirmed to FOX 5 that the Office of Professional Responsibility is investigating the actions of 35 police officers on Jan. 6, the day of the riot at the Capitol, and suspended six officers with pay.

The statement from the department reads:

"Our Office of Professional Responsibility is investigating the actions of 35 police officers from that day. We currently have suspended six of those officers with pay. 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."

Viral videos of some Capitol Police officers raise questions about their actions during the riot.

Some officers are seen standing along a doorway almost motionless as people file into the Capitol.

At least two accused rioters have told the FBI a Capitol Police officer told them, "It’s your house now."

Lawmakers have stated that one officer suspended took a selfie with someone and another was seen wearing a MAGA hat.

In a video, that officer wearing the hat asks two men if they can help him get through the crowd to help other officers inside the Capitol.

The officer hands one of the men his megaphone and says, "I’ll follow you." The video was taken by Rico La Starza who says he was visiting D.C. and went to the Capitol and started filming when he saw what was happening.

NANCY PELOSI WAS IN CHARGE OF CAPITOL SECURITY. When is she going to be HELD ACCOUNTABLE?
ADDITIONAL SECURITY was REFUSED MULTIPLE times BEFORE the session. It was PELOSI who put CONGRESS
at RISK. President Trump was 45 min away and still speaking when the breach occurred. Additional
SECURITY before and not AFTER the session might have PREVENTED a "breach".

NANCY PELOSI NEEDS TO STEP DOWN & AWAY FROM ANY PANEL. She is too involved in the CONCLUSION.
The House never did any investigation of Jan 6, 2021 BEFORE an IMPEACHMENT vote in 2 hours.
The investigation needs to BEGIN WITH THE DEPOSITION OF PELOSI. NOTHING that goes on at the CAPITOL
is done without Pelosi's knowledge or approval. HER INSISTENCE NOW in keeping armed guards there and
her refusal to answer WHY she is keeping troops there shows PROOF that PELOSI and ONLY she, IS IN
CHARGE OF WHAT GOES ON THERE. Pelosi is given more POWER than she should have. All of CONGRESS needs
to be in on that decision. NANCY PELOSI and JOE BIDEN think they and ONLY they are running our country.

PELOSI needs to come forward. Instead she puts her officers through this. Who sent some officers home from work BEFORE the session & "breach"??

Another observation, the police in question were working individually, not as a pair. Realistically, how many policemen if they found themselves in a mirrored situation would not have reacted the same? Place yourself in their situation. Imagine you had not been briefed that there was an increased threat level, you were kept in the dark. Then, without warning, you hear rioters breach the building. Your adrenaline rushes throughout your system, you are slammed into a heightened sense of awareness and confusion. You have no idea where and or the conditions of your fellow officers; resulting in survival mode. Officers must be alive and uninjured to protect and serve. When hundreds of rioters reach you and your only defense is a semi-automatic pistol with a 17rd clip....what the heck would you do? What are they supposed to do with a potentially lethal mob?
If you have studied hostages life saving reactions/behavior, an amazingly large number “play along” with their captors. This does two things, it makes the aggressors relate to you as a human, may have a positive influence and can cause a disruption in their plan(s) Also, the resulting “bond” acts upon their conscience and frequently reduces the “need” to kill their hostage. Taking all of that into consideration, what we sometimes see, and especially purposefully leaked video, does not tell the whole story and definitely not the racing thought of all involved. Policemen are heroes. They risk their lives every day and it’s definitely not for the money. So before we turn on them like a pack of Hyenas, what to hear the story out of THEIR mouths because we and the good Lord knows that politicians and the media are nothing but liars and bullies.

Yes agree with all that, BUT, they knew these people were unarmed, entering the city they were all checked for weapons, police knew this information as they were the ones checking, so they knew these people were unarmed....plus..on videos we saw police opening the doors and letting people in, there was no busting of doors down,...on 1 video a police officer was heard saying..`ITS NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY`...and watched them all go past him, on another video a person outside pleading to a group of police to do something...they stood there and watched and did not respond....why didnt they use their guns but the officers inside did? did that police officer know he was sending them into a slaying unarmed and knew the officers inside were going to shoot? ...these are all signs that something was pre-planned and organised and an intention not to resist at the doors and fences.....these people were VOCAL unarmed rioters, the trigger happy police officer that shot an unarmed Ashli MUST be charged, he is a gutless weak NON HERO, they are trained to hold off unless their life is threatened..it was not threatened by an unarmed woman...if a police officer shoots an unarmed woman, then he is not a HERO, and shouldnt be in the force......i watched a zoom meeting for 30mins of a PLANNED attack on the building by BLM Antifa and other groups...very clearly even showing maps, supplied by WHO?.....this video the world could see, FBI saw this no doubt and used to inform Pelosi.....the FBI and Police knew there would be a dangerous BLM and Antifa element, the video did not show intent to use weapons though, then informed Pelosi who thought, oh heres an opportunity to set people up, no doubt, and approved and let them in...the Trump supporters just followed the crowd...innocently thinking...planned by the Williams mob who knew they would follow making them look bad......AOC and her lying mate conveniently not in the building, Nancy, Pence, Shumar, Madam Mitch safe as houses and knew not to go back their offices, ....and Harris financially supports the Antifa and BLM murderous ways and bails them out...including Williams who is out.....so who planned this...the Dems, together with Pence and Madam Mitch knowing what was about to happen...happy to let the others go under the bus.....Pelosi knew about the preplanned so-called attack, and the police couldve used tasers, tear gas, water cannons...anything but fckin guns...but no...she wanted deaths to accuse Trump with....the dems have not once disavowed the murders and violence and NEVER called for PEACE....not once....I would bet this planet that the Dems and Rhinos Pence and Mitch were in on the know, together with an element of Police help to not resist, about this and took advantage of the situation to set Trump and his supporters up.....the police are NOT heros in this situation... if they really thought the situation was so bad in advance they SHOULDVE organised more back up and strength regardless of some senile old crazy corrupt murderous approving witches orders not to...that is irresponsible to not protect the people and not worthy of Hero ism words....in this situation they failed miserably...rant over....lol...

Perhaps my post was confusing; if so I apologize. My point was 1) The police were not briefed of the increased risk of violence. That is directly on Pelosi 2) the masses of people and the protesters vs officers also contributed to the police response. Because the officers were not paired, they had absolutely no idea if there was any back up if they attempted apprehension or restraints again, Pelosi’s fault 3) you cannot blame the police for their lack of actions/reactions. They were caught off guard and that too is completely on Pelosi. My issue is they are singling out officers in an attempt to shift responsibility
My opinion is that the officers that died after the 6th did not die as a result of injuries on the 6th, they did not commit suicide and did not die from “natural causes.” I think there is a possibility and probability that those officers saw or heard something that would expose the “puppet masters” and that is WHY they died and the cause/manner of death(s) were designed to conceal murder. Just my opinion. Now they are attacking 6 additional offers to maintain the focus and spotlight remain pointing away from those that designed the riot....

Anything I hear out of DC, the current administration and/or from mainstream media I assume and believe is a lie.
