( Kristinn Taylor) The FBI reporteldly knew in advance extremists were plotting to attack the Capitol on January 6, yet the attack took place as there was insufficient security in place that allowed police lines to be easily overrun by violent extremists and boisterous Trump supporters. Five people are reported to have died as a result of the ensuing riot: an unarmed protester was shot by police, a Capitol police officer injured in the attack, a protester who was trampled by the mob and two other protesters who died of medical emergencies. A second Capitol Police officer committed suicide days after he defended the Capitol during the mob attack. Pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails were found near Capitol Hill during the riots.
