On Friday, a 25-year veteran of the US Capitol Police force was charged with protecting a man who was accused of illegally entering the Capitol in the January 6th riot.

A grand jury indictment charged Officer Michael Angelo Riley with telling a man to delete all social media that would provide proof of entering the Capitol.

Capitol Police Chief, Tom Manger, stated Riley was placed on leave.

Manger also stated that the Capitol police would conduct their own administrative investigation.

A Capitol Police spokesman told NBC News that Riley was not one of the 38 officers under internal investigation.
