U.S. Capitol Police Inspector General Michael Bolton testified before the House Administration Committee on his report on the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. When asked about why the order was given to Capitol Police not to use all available equipment, “such as heavier, less-than-lethal weapons,” Mr. Bolton said that Capitol Police leadership through their review decided the heavier munitions were not to be used because “they could potentially cause life-altering injury, and/or death,” and misuse could result in these outcomes. However, Mr. Bolton said that any weapon placed in the hands of police officers could result in injury or death if proper training is not provided. He also discussed the need for consistent communication among federal law enforcement and approved security clearance for Capitol police officers to share in classified intelligence pertaining to threats on the Capitol complex.
