Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced today that Lt. General Russel Honoré (Ret.) will lead an immediate review of the security of the U.S. Capitol Complex which was breached in last week's riotous invasion of Congress.

“Last week, we suffered a devastating attack on the Capitol that threatened the lives of and traumatized Members of Congress, staff and support workers.

“To protect our Democracy, we must now subject the security of the U.S. Capitol Complex to rigorous scrutiny. To that end, I have asked Lt. General Russel Honoré (Ret.), a respected leader with experience dealing with crises, to lead an immediate review of the Capitol’s security infrastructure, interagency processes and procedures, and command and control.

“As former Vice Director for Operations, J-3, with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, his focus was military support to civil authorities, and he has strong experience with the security of the National Capital Region. Members of the House Leadership worked with General Honoré during Katrina and saw firsthand his strategic and patriotic leadership. The General will be calling upon other subject matter experts as to how we go forward.

“Members of Congress are moving forward inside the Congress with strong oversight from their committees, and there is strong support for an outside commission to conduct an after action review. In the meantime, I am grateful that General Honoré has agreed to address our immediate security concerns.”
