WATCH: Joe Scarborough Asks Why Sean Hannity Had Better Info Pre-1/6 Than Capitol Police

It wasn’t that big of a surprise when Donald Trump’s 1/6 demonstration ended in violence. However, it was a surprise that the Capitol Police were so unprepared for such an event.

The personalities of Fox News were undoubtedly ready for violence. The January 6 commission has revealed texts from the network’s hosts asking Trump’s Cheif Staff Mark Meadows to do something. Joe Scarborough wondered how Fox had better information than the Capitol Poice during his Wednesday broadcast.

Washington Post reporter Jacqueline Alemany wrote in a recent column, “Fox News host Sean Hannity shot off a text on New Year’s Eve — a week before the ‘Stop the Steal’ rally that preceded the violent siege — warning the White House chief of staff of mass resignations in the White House Counsel’s Office. The night before the rally, Hannity’s private concerns about the day ahead escalated in another text to Meadows.”

Referring to the column, Scarborough asked, “My question is, Sean Hannity was very worried about the next 48 hours, and he was telling the White House he was worried about the next 48 hours.”

The MSNBC host continued, “Why weren’t law enforcement officers and the National Guard and everybody else worried about the next 48 hours? You are right, these text messages are pretty extraordinary. Hannity also basically begging the White House — somebody in the White House — to get people to stop rioting on the capitol grounds.”
