Former United States Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund is set to testify before the House next week during a hearing about security failures during the Jan. 6 riot. 

"Former USCP Chief Steven Sund will be the witness at next week’s House Administration’s Oversight Subcommittee hearing," panel Chairman Rep. Barry Loudermilk posted Thursday on social media. "I look forward to hearing the chief’s testimony and his assessment of the security failures on January 6, 2021."

The hearing is set to take place Tuesday.

There have been multiple reports of security failures that took place during the Jan. 6 riot in 2021. 

Sund has already testified several times on Capitol Hill on the matter.

"The more that we look at these 44,000 hours of video, we start finding these anomalies that the January 6 Select Committee obviously chose to ignore. And this is very strange, and we have many questions as you do," Loudermilk told the Just the News, No Noise television show earlier this year.

"One thing we know, this was a failure of command and control within the Capitol Police because of an intelligence failure," he also said. "And as well as the over politicization of the Capitol Police by members of leadership."
