35 Capitol Police officers under investigation for actions during Jan. 6 riot

A Capitol Police spokesman on Thursday said 35 officers are under investigation for their actions during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, including six who have been suspended with pay.

"Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman has directed that any member of her department whose behavior is not in keeping with the department's rules of conduct will face appropriate discipline," spokesman John Stolnis told CNN.

Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) previously said one of the suspended officers took a selfie with a member of the mob that stormed the Capitol. So far, more than 250 people have been charged in connection with the attack.
