An independent media investigation has sparked a congressional inquiry into alleged perjury by U.S. Capitol Police, as reported in an analysis by investigative journalist Steve Baker of Blaze News.

U.S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), who chairs the Committee on House Administration Subcommittee on Oversight with jurisdiction over Capitol Police, sent a letter on March 1 to USCP Chief J. Thomas Manger, as highlighted by Baker.

The letter, spanning four pages, requested more comprehensive information regarding a 2016 disciplinary report involving Special Agent David Lazarus and details about an internal affairs investigation of Lazarus from last November prompted by Blaze Media’s reporting.

Loudermilk’s letter specifically mentioned that on Nov. 7, 2023, Lazarus was referred to the USCP Office of Professional Responsibility for allegedly providing untruthful testimony in a significant criminal court case related to an incident at the Capitol building on January 6, 2021.


The congressman pointed out findings from Baker’s investigation in October which indicated that Lazarus could not have witnessed events on Jan. 6 as he claimed during the Oath Keepers trial, as video evidence showed he was elsewhere in the Capitol at that time.

Loudermilk’s letter also provides an additional detail that, if true, would raise additional questions about federal prosecutors’ conduct of the Oath Keepers’ trial. According to Loudermilk, OPR investigators “relied on the statements of a federal prosecutor in the case in which Special Agent Lazarus was called as a witness.”

Blaze Media also learned from a congressional source that federal prosecutors “were definitely consulted/interviewed” by Capitol Police investigators during their inquiry in November.

In addition to Loudermilk’s letter revealing that OPR interviewed Lazarus on December 18, 2023 and he denied committing perjury when asked by a USCP officer, it was also disclosed that a former high-ranking USCP officer, speaking anonymously due to fear of retaliation, informed Blaze Media about a previous disciplinary incident that raised concerns about Lazarus’ trial testimony and overall credibility.

In 2016, Lazarus, who was assigned to the Dignitary Protection Division, was involved in the cover-up of an incident in which he was discovered to be drinking on duty. Lying in an internal affairs investigation is a “terminable” offense. At…
