Ex-Capitol Police Officer, as recently promised, has released the first tranche of twelve hours of J6 police scanner audio as Capitol Police discussed mobilizing to address the threat of extremists who have laid siege to the Congress during the 2020 election certification.
Or, not mobilizing, as former Capitol Police Lieutenant Tarik Johnson’s audio appears to show.
“Here we go… Episode 1,” Johnson posted on X on Sunday. “The mainstream media is telling you that J6 was an insurrection.”
“Please tell me if the actions of Assistant Chief Yogananda Pittman were heroic and proper,” he added. “To give so some context Pittman’s call sign is Unit 2 and she is sitting on a dias in the USCP Commander Center where she can hear the radio traffic and she has a 360 degree view of the outside of the Capitol.”
“She can also see the actives inside the Capitol where there is a camera,” he continued. “Chief Steven A Sund was on the phone trying to obtain approval for the National Guard’s assistance and assistance from other law enforcement agencies. I was on the ground trying to de-escalate the situation specially asking Pittman for help. My call sign was 405J-John.”
