FBI's intel failure ahead of Capitol riot goes beyond a missed email

Nearly two decades after the failure to share intelligence helped prevent the FBI from foiling the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the bureau is accused of not making sure local police agencies fully appreciated the threats brewing among militia groups and white supremacists in the days before the assault on the U.S. Capitol.

An FBI intelligence report describing plans for violence at the Capitol was sent by email to lower-level officials the night before the Jan. 6 riot, and it was never read by Capitol Police or Washington, D.C., leaders, according to testimony at Tuesday's Senate hearing.

Senators said that was "an intelligence breakdown" by both the Capitol Police and the FBI.
