Two Capitol Police officers are said to have been sacked after they were caught on camera getting super friendly with Capitol rioters who stormed the building.

Rep. Tim Ryan made the announcement Monday, saying at least two Capitol officers who were on duty last Wednesday have been suspended for actions documented during the siege. He said for the two Capitol Police officers, who have yet to be identified, one was apparently wearing a MAGA hat and directing insurrectionists on Capitol grounds, and the other took selfies with these folks.

The latter appears to have been captured on video in a viral clip from that day has surfaced, and it shows a Capitol officer in a yellow vest and a black cap pausing to pose for a photo with one of the insurrectionists.

During a presser Monday, Rep. Ryan reportedly said Capitol Police are looking at everybody at this point, including men and women in their own ranks.

The FBI believes there are signs of an inside job, and is investigating whether Capitol Police officers or civilian employees in the Capitol aided the rioters in any way.

Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund resigned as a result of the backlash he and his department have faced for a poor show of force and for letting things get out of hand.
