Many questions remain unanswered about the failure to prevent the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. But after six congressional hearings, it’s clear that the Capitol Police were unprepared and overwhelmed as hundreds of Donald Trump’s supporters laid siege to the building. It’s also clear that no one wants to take responsibility for it.

Indication are that any preparations that might have taken place were deliberately sabotaged by the administration, most likely for ideological reasons. The rhetoric by the GOP afterwards is rife with false equivalency and disinformation.
