At his trial on Monday, ex-US Capitol Police law enforcement officer, Michael Riley, charged with blocking the US DOJ’s inquiry into the 6th January deadly insurrection on the Capitol Hill, testified before the grand jury.
Michael A. Riley, a former USCP officer, was charged with hindering for telling the 6th JAN attacker to remove a post from Facebook platform about being in the Capitol Hill testified for nearly four hours in front of the jury that he was mortified about having spoken to Jacob Hiles, who asserts duped him regarding his degree of interest in the riot.
Riley delivered texts to Hiles soon after the Capitol riot, when he was a USCP law enforcement officer, told the grand panel that he believed Jan. 6 protestor posted he was pushed into the Capitol building by the violent crowd of Trump followers.

On 7 January last year, Riley messaged the 6th JAN demonstrator who had posted about being at the United States Capitol during the insurrection and who a Facebook friend had never met physically. The minute he read this Facebook post, he said he was at the U.S. Capitol Hill video-taping that day and was pushed inside the Capitol building, ex-USCP law enforcement officer told the jury, adding that he saw Jacob Hiles as simply a protestor who got forced into the Capitol Hill and was frightened of being trampled.

Furthermore, Riley’s Facebook friend told jurors that he’d communicated with a Jan. 6 rioter that he should remove the parts of a ‘public message’ mentioning that he moved into the building. And a former USCP officer wrote to a Facebook friend on 7th January last year. He also testified that some weeks after delivering that message, he struck out his communication with Jacob Hiles after he Hiles said he spoke with the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding their exchanges.
