The Secret Service warned the Capitol Police the day before the Capitol riots that some of President Trump's supporters were threatening violence against them.

Emails obtained by a Freedom of Information Act request by the government watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington show that the Secret Service warned the Capitol Police that some of the people arriving in Washington for Trump's rally were pledging violence against a police force that they said "sides with the enemy."

The emails offer more context to the warnings issued about a plethora of threats against the Capitol ahead of the day of the actual attacks—and raise more questions about how the U.S. Capitol Police were so ill-prepared for the coming onslaught.
