Former Capitol Police Chief Stevend Sund shared shocking insight into the events surrounding Jan. 6, 2021, this week, implying that General Mark Milley and former Acting Secretary of Defense Chris Miller may have been involved in providing a mechanism for the violence in D.C.

During an in-depth interview with Tucker Carlson that was posted exclusively to X, Sund revealed that in the wake of the 2020 presidential election and in the leadup to Jan. 6, military leaders were concerned about potential violence arising at the U.S. Capitol.

Sund explained:

“You have the U.S. military, the Acting Secretary of Defense, Miller, and General Milley, had both discussed locking down the city of Washington, D.C., because they were so worried about the violence at the Capitol on January 6. On Sunday and Monday, they had been discussing locking down the city – revoking permits on Capitol Hill because of the concern for violence. You know who issues the permits on Capitol Hill for demonstrations? I do. You know who wasn’t told? Me.”

Additionally, Sund told Carlson that on Jan. 4, 2021, Miller “puts out a memo restricting the National Guard from carrying the various weapons, any weapons, civil disobedience equipment that would be utilized for the very demonstrations of violence that he sees coming. It just doesn’t make any sense.”

As previously reported by RSBN, Sund also told the former Fox host that there were 18 reported federal operatives in the crowd on Jan. 6. He stated to Carlson, “For an engagement in Washington D.C. down at the mall, I might expect to see, you know, secret service may have some undercovers, FBI may have a couple, MPD might have a couple, but that’s a lot.”

Sund also addressed the viral footage of Ray Epps during his conversation with Carlson, reacting to footage of the man in question yelling to a crowd of protesters, “We need to go INTO the Capitol!”

Sund said that Epps allegedly whispered something into another protestor’s ear at the Pennsylvania Gate, and moments later, that same person was “attacking my officers – that’s suspicious as hell to me. That raised a lot of concerns.”
