The U.S. Capitol Police chief will tell Congress on Wednesday that while much more work needs to be done, the agency has made "significant improvements" to protect the building in the year since a pro-Trump mob violently clashed with its officers and desecrated the halls of Congress.

In his prepared remarks, Manger also says the department is hiring a full-time director for intelligence, one of Bolton's recommendations.
