The U.S. Capitol Police are responsible for the safety of all congressional members.
As such, they have about 1,800 cameras monitoring areas around the Capitol as well as various homes of congressional members.
The break-in at the Pelosi home was caught on camera, but it was not being viewed at the time by Capitol Police.
An internal review has now been ordered.
So, it turns out, there was either a breakdown or shortage in the monitoring of the homes.
Either way, it ends up being House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) that is responsible.
As the Speaker, she oversees House security, so why did we either not have enough officers to monitor the cameras or why where the officers not doing their jobs?
The officer watching the feeds did not spot anything wrong until the police lights showed up on the screen.
He then rewound the footage, seeing the alleged break-in take place.
The Capitol Police addressed the issue, stating, "The Department has begun an internal security review and will be gathering input and questions from our Congressional stakeholders.
"We have been immensely grateful for the critical support the Congress already provided to secure the U.S. Capitol Complex after January 6, 2021.
"The funding was vital for us to implement dozens of immediate improvements.
"Now we will fast-track the work we have already been doing to enhance the protection of Members outside of Washington, D.C., while also providing new protective options that will address concerns following Friday's targeted attack."
The statement added, "While the Speaker was with her security detail in Washington, D.C., the San Francisco cameras were not actively monitored as they are when the Speaker is at the residence.
"The Command Center personnel noticed the police activity on the screen and used the feeds to monitor the response and assist investigators."
If her husband was home, I still do not understand why they would not be monitored.
You are telling me that if a member of Congress is away from home but his or her spouse and children are there, there is no one watching the cameras?
Clearly, the Capitol Police need to revisit their protocols.
