Ex-Capitol Police Officer, as recently promised, has released the first tranche of twelve hours of J6 police scanner audio as Capitol Police discussed mobilizing to address the threat of extremists who have laid siege to the Congress during the 2020 election certification.
Or, not mobilizing, as former Capitol Police Lieutenant Tarik Johnson’s audio appears to show.
“Here we go… Episode 1,” Johnson posted on X on Sunday. “The mainstream media is telling you that J6 was an insurrection.”
“Please tell me if the actions of Assistant Chief Yogananda Pittman were heroic and proper,” he added. “To give so some context Pittman’s call sign is Unit 2 and she is sitting on a dias in the USCP Commander Center where she can hear the radio traffic and she has a 360 degree view of the outside of the Capitol.”
“She can also see the actives inside the Capitol where there is a camera,” he continued. “Chief Steven A Sund was on the phone trying to obtain approval for the National Guard’s assistance and assistance from other law enforcement agencies. I was on the ground trying to de-escalate the situation specially asking Pittman for help. My call sign was 405J-John.”
The J6 police scanner audio seems to indicate that Assistant Chief Pittman was noticeably unavailable or unwilling to assist Chief Steven Sund as he attempted to get National Guard to the Congress to protect the Electoral College as there were challenges being heard to the 2020 election.
The J6 police audio further corroborates the lack of decisive action taken by the Capitol Police to protect the Congress, which is literally the police body’s one job.
Tarik Johnson clarified that the police scanner audio indicates a lack of appropriate action from Unit 2, suggesting a plausible case of professional negligence on the part of Assistant Chief Yogananda Pittman.
That’s my point.

Critically, former Capitol Police Chief Sund had warned the Congress at least three times in the run-up to the Capitol riots about the impending danger to the election certification.
Sund wrote an eight-page letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Congressional officials outlining the events leading up to the Jan. 6 riots, as well as a comprehensive timeline of events as he witnessed them occur on that day.
The former Capitol Police Chief questioned the massive security failures ahead of the January 6 riots.
As previously mentioned, the IICD intelligence assessment indicated that the January 6th protests/rallies were “expected to be similar to the previous Million MAGA March rallies in November and December 2020, which drew tens of thousands of participants.” The assessment indicated that members of the Proud Boys, white supremacist groups, Antifa, and other extremist groups were expected to participate in the January 6th event and that they may be inclined to become violent.
Pelosi promptly demanded that Sund resign on January 7. Sund presented his resignation letter later that day.
In 2021, Politico reported that a former high-ranking Capitol Police official with knowledge of the department’s reaction to the Jan. 6 attack had written a blistering letter to congressional leaders, accusing two of its senior officials of mishandling intelligence and failing to respond appropriately during the incident.
The whistleblower, who wanted anonymity for privacy reasons and left the force months after the incident, delivered the 16-page letter late last month to top House and Senate lawmakers from both parties.
The letter leveled scathing charges against Sean Gallagher, the Capitol Police’s acting head of uniformed operations, and Yogananda Pittman, the agency’s assistant chief of police for protection and intelligence operations — who also acted as acting chief.
Johnson, a 22-year veteran on the Capitol Police force, was tasked with securing the certification of the 2020 presidential election.
On January 6, 2021, political extremists known to the FBI to be planning to cause chaos during the 2020 election challenges were allowed by America’s intelligence and security services to lay siege to the Congress during the Electoral College.
The political extremists, who did not carry firearms and had no realistic means of ‘overturning the election,’ and who subsequently killed no one, were allowed to enter the capitol building, in some cases with the aiding and abetting of Capitol Police officers who held doors open and even escorted some J6ers, and in the absence of National Guard troops that Donald Trump wanted to have protect the election challenges.
The House of Representatives, led by then Speaker Pelosi, and the U.S. Senate, then led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, did nothing to improve the security, despite repeated warnings, including from former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund. D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser flat refused to increase the National Guard presence. The Pentagon ignored warnings to enhance security for the election certification. A National Guard general later would say that security was deliberated reduced over supposed concerns about “optics.”
It has since come out the U.S. Capitol was crawling with FBI agents, human assets, undercover armed police officers, and agents provocateurs captured on video encouraging Trump supporters to go to the capitol after Donald Trump’s speech that implored supporters to “peacefully and patriotically” let their voices be heard — a clear call to show support for the election challenges taking place in the Congress, not encouragement to cause a meaningless and counter-productive riot that would inevitably end in defeat and possibly even criminal charges while doing nothing to aid the president’s legal and constitutional election challenges.
The one thing that has been lacking to unequivocally call January 6 a “set-up,” instead of merely an obvious one, is hard evidence provided by an insider, such as a Capitol Police officer, FBI agent, or Congressional staffer with access to state secrets.
Enter former Capitol Police Lieutenant Tarik Johnson. This week, Johnson made some startling claims that promises to blow the lid off the January 6 “cover-up.”
Johnson is making it clear that he is doing his due diligence to go through the proper procedures and channels to release potentially revelatory information he believes the American people have a right to know.
“I spoke to my lawyer and I told him what my plans are as it relates to releasing information on X about the J6 set-up and the cover-up that ensued after. I wanted to see what if any legal ramifications I’d be facing when I do. He stated he didn’t see any and if something arose we would deal with it together. So it’s a go!!!!!!!!!!!!!” he exclaimed on X.
“With that said, I ask for everyone to be patient as I’m going to do this right and I have to make another post before I load the 12-hour radio run to my page,” he continued. “Additionally, I am not a tech person so I will also have to learn to load large documents and audio files from my computer to X so I’m going to need a little more time. I still have to work in the middle of all this and I’m dealing with family stuff at the same time but you have my word I will get everything done by next week. Hopefully by Wednesday.”
“Some worry that something may happen to me prior to releasing the info. You can rest easy with that. Tom Fitton of Judical Watch has the info along with my attorney. Also
@TPC4USA [Steve Baker] (who you all should be following) has permission to receive the info and do whatever he believes is best with that info in the unlikely event I disappear. The man only wants the truth no matter where it leads,” he added.
“Please know that I am fighting for EVERYONE that was aggrieved from the events of J6 and UNITY in our country,” he continued. “I’m not doing this for any financial gain now or in the future but for the reasons I listed above by order of the God I serve. I am a LION and I will protect my cubs. In this case they are EVERYONE in the J6 community as you were set-up and that should not have happened to you even if you did wrong things that day. The police from all 17 agencies that responded to the Capitol to defend it as we should have been more prepared that day. All the people that died on J6 or as a result from that day. All whistleblowers from every agency that put their careers in jeopardy and or lost them because they wanted the truth out and saw what was happening to US citizens because of J6.”
“Thank you for listening and God bless the greatest nation in the world and all the people in it,” he closed.
