That man is Officer Eugene Goodman. Footage from Wednesday’s attack on the Capitol shows him leading the mob of Trump supporters in the opposite direction of the Senate chambers after he noticed it was unguarded.
At one point, Goodman arrives at a landing and looks to a hallway to his left. A door in that hallway led to the Senate chambers, Wilson wrote in a tweet. Goodman then leads the rioters to the right, away from the Senate chambers — and their “targets,” Wilson said.
Goodman leads them into a larger hall, and backup officers arrive — still outnumbered by rioters. Bobic stopped recording and was evacuated shortly afterward, he said.
CNN has reached out to US Capitol Police for comment on Goodman’s actions and is waiting to hear back.
