Bongino: There Was Nothing That Would Indicate There’d Be Violence on Capitol on Wednesday

‘There was no history of this in the past at any of these Trump rallies, Tea Party rallies’

BONGINO: “But having said that, I think what played into this, and this is just me being candid, there was really no history of this in the past at any of these Trump rallies, Tea Party rallies or any associated political movements. The Tea Party rallies at the Capitol were more sanitation measures as they cleaned up the Capitol after they left. There was really no pre-op intelligence to indicate that there would be violence here, that they though. It may have been out there, but they missed it. So that's number one. Number two, your outer perimeter, when you get pre-op intelligence that you could be outnumbered, when it's going to be a sheer numbers game, and you don’t have enough officers in contrast to the number of people who are going to show up, you can use an access control measure. You have to use a security measure. I want to be crystal-clear on this, what I mean. It’s like saying someone is going to storm Washington football game or whatever it may be, and you have turnstiles up. The turnstile's an access control measure, it stops people from coming in without a ticket, but it's not a security measure.”
