Acting Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman has declined to testify at a Tuesday hearing on the Jan. 6 insurrection, giving an excuse the top Republican on the House Oversight Committee deemed "pathetic."

Rep. James Comer said in a statement Pittman claimed "she must watch another hearing where the Capitol Police Inspector General is testifying in case she has to respond in some way to what’s said at that hearing."

The Kentucky Republican called it "pathetic" for Pittman not to testify and said she was declining to "avoid answering the hard questions."

Capitol Police Inspector General Michael Bolton is set to testify at the same time on Tuesday afternoon and will detail his latest report on security gaps and failures among front-line officer units to lawmakers on the House Administration Committee.
