Tarik K. Johnson, former lieutenant with the U.S. Capitol Police, claimed on Twitter that John Thomas Manger, the present chief of the Capitol Police was conspiring to ensure that former President Donald Trump does not get reelected.

In an extensive message on Twitter, Johnson wrote, addressing Manger, “I know you and your people are watching everything that is transpiring in the country and laughing at the J6 community as most are focused on officers from the USCP and MPD and not on you or Pittman. I will acknowledge that you are winning now but I promise you the tide will turn,” he wrote.

He continued: “Pittman caused what occurred on J6 effectively torching our country and you were brought in to cover-up her sins and so far you are doing a magnificent job. But here is the bad news. I’m not going to stop talking about you and at some point former President Trump’s people will find out who you and Pittman are and what you are doing to ensure Trump is not re-elected.”

“You have turned the United States Capitol Police into a Democratic weapon against the J6 community and former President Donald J. Trump and God has called me to disarm you. As always sir, I will continue to pray that God will have mercy on your soul,” he concluded.

Since his tweet, the query, “Who is J Thomas Manger” has gone viral on X, formerly known as Twitter.
