The head of NYPD's counterterrorism unit says he rejects the notion that what happened at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th was an intelligence failure saying that at this moment the domestic terror threat may be “more dangerous” than the threat of foreign terrorism to the US.
NYPD Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence and Counterterroism John Miller, in an interview for the @TODAYshow says, “a lot of people are asking ‘well was this an intelligence failure’, it wasn't an intelligence failure, the intelligence was there.”
@TODAYshow Miller talked about the pre-January 6th intelligence saying, “what we passed on to the Capitol Police was largely tracking with what the Capitol Police and the D.C. police were seeing from other agencies.”
@TODAYshow He says, “what the FBI passed to them was largely tracking with what we gave to them.”

“The difficulty here is, after seeing so much of that talk for so long, there is a possible tendency to get numb to it and a reluctance to believe it could actually come true.”
@TODAYshow Miller believes, “in the case of the Capitol Police, they were asking for additional assistance in advance of that event, that looking back, they probably should have been granted.”

NEW: Federal prosecutors acknowledge that dates written on former FBI officials Pete Strozk and Andy McCabe's notes were not written by them.

Instead, they say the dates were estimated dates created by a review team and attached by post-it notes and inadvertently scanned in.
As you may recall, in the past few weeks Strozk and MCabe have raised concerns that dates appeared on their handwritten notes filed in the Flynn case that they say they never wrote.

Today, prosecutors acknowledged they were right, they didn't write in those dates.
The prosecutors say it was FBI agents assigned to the Eastern District of Missouri who attached the dates via post-it note as "estimated dates" and then the documents were scanned at FBI headquarters without taking the post-it notes off first.
