turns out the terrorists got into the Capitol because some of them were off-duty police officers who showed their badges! Worse and worse. Everything is slowly being exposed. The government has been infiltrated by a conspiracy cult loyal to Donald Trump. They were intent on installing Trump as a dictator. Foreign intelligence officers also mentioned this in a BusinessInsider article.

“The president was trying to stage a coup. There was little chance of it happening, but there was enough chance that the former defense secretaries had to put out that letter, which was the final nail through that effort. They prevented the military from being involved in any coup attempt. But instead, Trump tried to incite it himself,” said Fiona Hill, Trump’s former top Russia adviser in The Daily Beast. “This could have turned into a full-blown coup had he had any of those key institutions following him. Just because it failed or didn’t succeed doesn’t mean it wasn’t real.”

Also, cops got other cops killed. However, if you’ve read articles on police corruption or watched the Al Pacino movie “Serpico,” this is not unusual. This also explains why some cops tried to fight the attackers, and others stood back and let them in.

“One current Metro D.C. police officer said in a public Facebook post that off-duty police officers and members of the military, who were among the rioters, flashed their badges and I.D. cards as they attempted to overrun the building. ‘If these people can storm the Capitol building with no regard to punishment, you have to wonder how much they abuse their powers when they put on their uniforms,” the officer wrote,” according to Politico.
