Sunday, Washington D.C. Capitol Police officers lined up in front of the Capitol building to watch the procession for Sicknick go by. One officer got in trouble for wearing a MAGA hat and directing rioters, and another took a selfie with an intruder.

Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, along with sergeants at arms for both the U.S. House and Senate resigned Thursday over the botched response to the Capitol riot.

"These US Capitol police officers made the ultimate sacrifice so the certification of the free and fair election could proceed as the United States Constitution requires".

"Our Office of Professional Responsibility will investigate these behaviors for disciplinary action, up to, and including termination", she said.

Pittman added that they were also working with other law enforcement agencies to identify those involved in the destruction of property at the U.S. Capital with the intention "to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law".

Hundreds of Trump supporters overwhelmed law enforcement to storm the Capitol building on Wednesday last week, leading to the deaths of five people and interrupting the certification of USA election results.

The White House lowered its American flag to half-staff, three days after a police officer died from injuries suffered while fending off supporters of President Donald Trump who stormed the Capitol building.

He called it "a sign of respect for the service and sacrifice" of Capitol Police officers Brian Sicknick, who died last Thursday, and Howard Liebengood, whose death was announced on Sunday, as well as "all Capitol Police Officers and law enforcement across this great nation".
