Only a couple of months after the riot at the Capitol, the investigation is still ongoing. However, today Capitol Police suspended one officer after an anti-Semitic document was found near a security checkpoint.
“We take all allegations of inappropriate behavior seriously. Once this matter was brought to my attention, I immediately ordered the officer to be suspended until the Office of Professional Responsibility can thoroughly investigate,” acting chief Yogananda Pittman shared in a statement.
According to ABC News, near a security checkpoint, a copy of the “Protocols of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion” was found on a table. The document is a notorious anti-Semitic tract.
At this moment, the officer who was suspended has not been named. Although, they are not to be suspended as six others have been suspended since the insurrection. Also, 35 are under investigation for their involvement with the attack. Pittman said those actions include how they interacted with rioters.
