Senate Sergeant-At-Arms During Jan. 6 Found Dead; Had Suggested ‘Professional Agitators’ Were To Blame

The man who served as sergeant-at-arms for the U.S. Senate during the January 6 riot and later suggested that “professional agitators” might be to blame for the incident has been found dead, according to reports

Michael Stenger’s death comes amid the House of Representatives’ investigation of the riot at the U.S. Capitol last year. No cause of death was given for Stenger, a 35-year veteran of the Secret Service and a former U.S. Marine.

“Fox confirms that Michael Stenger, the Senate Sergeant at Arms who was in charge of Senate security the day of the Capitol riot, has died,” tweeted Fox News Channel’s Chad Pergram.

Despite a lack of details, speculation swirled on social media, in part due to Stenger’s proximity to the ongoing probe. Stenger, 71, was faulted along with former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund in a report by the Senate Rules Committee for not requesting aid from the National Guard. Soon-to-be-Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) vowed to fire Stenger, who had held the post since 2018, if he was not ousted by January 20, 2021.

Then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “requested and received the resignation” of Stenger on Jan. 7, 2021.
