‘Overwhelming vote of no confidence’ delivered by Capitol Police Union

The U.S. Capitol Police Labor Union on Monday delivered an “overwhelming vote of No Confidence” on the senior leadership of the U.S. Capitol Police.

The vote comes after the Executive Board of the Capitol Police Union last week called for its members to consider a vote of no confidence following the senior leadership’s mishandling of the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riots.

The Board said it decided to hold a vote after reviewing the events on and leading up to the events of Jan. 6, which resulted in the deaths of six people.  Approximately 140 Capitol and Metropolitan Police officers were injured.

“The past week of the impeachment trial showed members of Congress and the entire country, devastating details of the violence that Capitol Police officers faced during the insurrection,” union Chairman Gus Papathanasiou said in a statement. “It was the darkest day in the history of the department.”
