Former Capitol Hill Police Chief Described January 6 As a “Cover-Up”

On August 3, 2023, The National Pulse published a premier video of Tucker Carlson’s last interview at Fox News before he got unceremoniously canned by the media giant. 

Carlson interviewed former Capitol Hill Police Chief Steven Sund to discuss the events surrounding the January 6, 2021 storming of the United States Capitol.

In the interview with the former Fox media star,  Sund described the January 6 storming of the Capitol as a “cover-up” orchestrated by leading government officials for their actions that took place that day.

Sund claimed then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and General Mark Milley had information to suggest that certain problems were going to occur at Capitol Hill.

Nevertheless, these two leading authorities refused to share the information with other relevant authorities. Moreover, they refused to summon the National Guard prior to January 6th and during the early stages of the rioting.

On August 1, Sund said to elected officials during a hearing in front of Senate Rules and Homeland Security committees that he did not receive the FBI report warning concerning violence that was set to take place on January 6.

The FBI published a report on January 5, one day prior to the riot at the Capitol that listed various threats of violence. Sund claimed his department obtained the FBI report, but it ended up never reaching his office. 

During Sund’s discussion with Carlson, the topic of alleged agent provocateur Ray Epps came up. Sund said to Carlson that it’s not far-fetched to speculate about Epps and the role he played in the January 6th storming of the Capitol. 

Right before the January 6th demonstrations on January 5, 2021, a middle-aged man donning a MAGA hat showed up and shouted to the crowd that they needed to “go into the Capitol” the next day.

This individual made this call to go to the Capitol as he stood next to Antifa organizer John Sullivan. The man in question was identified as Ray Epps, a member of a right-wing militia.

Many pundits on the right believe that Epps is an agent provocateur that the government used to discredit former President Trump and his movement.
