    Law enforcement officials responsible for U.S. Capitol security on Jan. 6 said a violent mob was able to overrun the building because incomplete intelligence led to inadequate preparations — failings compounded by bureaucratic delays bringing in National Guard reinforcements.

    Former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, former Senate Sergeant-At-Arms Michael Stenger, former House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving and acting Washington D.C. Police Chief Robert Contee all told a Senate hearing Tuesday that their planning was based on intelligence that predicted civil disobedience during a rally with former President Donald Trump’s supporters. They were not prepared for the protest to turn into a deadly insurrection.
