Ex-Capitol Police chief nets deal for Jan. 6 book

NEW YORK — The chief of the U.S. Capitol Police during the Jan. 6 siege has a book deal. Steven A. Sund’s “Courage Under Fire: Under Siege and Outnumbered 58 to 1 on January 6” will come out Jan. 3, just shy of the two-year anniversary of the riot by supporters of President Donald Trump.

“It’s time to break my silence and reveal everything that I know happened,” Sund said in a statement released by Blackstone Publishing.

Sund resigned under pressure soon after Jan. 6 and testified the following month that he hadn’t seen an FBI field report warning of potential violence. He said the overrunning of the U.S. Capitol was the result of widespread failures.

According to Blackstone, Sund will provide “a detailed and harrowing minute-by-minute account of the attack.”
