WASHINGTON – The Latest on congressional testimony about the Capitol insurrection (all times local):

2:45 p.m.

A Senate hearing examining what went wrong with the law enforcement response to the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection has ended.

House Rules Committee Chairwoman Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., said afterward that “it’s clear action needs to be taken” after security officials who were in charge that day described confusion during the attack and intelligence failures that failed to predict the violence. Three of the four security officials, including the Capitol police chief, resigned immediately after the attack.

Klobuchar said the next police chief should have “greater ability to make decisions” both leading up to and during a crisis.

Five people died as a result of the violence.
