From what they've been showing in the news, they were fired for violating District of Columbia law and for giving false or inaccurate statements when they were being interviewed as part of the investigation into their activities in DC on January 6th 2021.

Chief Diaz stated long ago that anyone found in violation of any of Seattle PD's standards/policies or any laws would be terminated. I guess he's true to his word, kudos to him for taking the time out to wait until the investigation was completed. Of course the police union is not happy with this.

Seattle Police Chief fires two officers at Capitol on Jan. 6​

August 06, 2021 at 2:17 pm PDTBy Essex Porter, KIRO 7 News
SEATTLE — Seattle Police Chief Adrian Diaz on Friday fired two officers who were at the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 insurrection. This comes exactly six months after the attack on the Capitol, and after a monthslong investigation determined that they had violated Washington law.​
The Office of Police Accountability investigated six Seattle police officers who were close to the U.S. Capitol when it came under attack from insurrectionists on Jan. 6.​
The FBI shared still pictures taken from video showing that two married Seattle Police Department officers were beyond barriers and outside the capitol at the time Washington police declared a riot.​
“You stated that you had no idea that the event had turned violent, that nothing in your view indicated ongoing violence,” Chief Diaz wrote about officers Alexander Everett and Caitlin Rochelle Everett in each of their disciplinary action reports.​
“It defies belief that you could think this situation was ‘peaceful’ or that you were not on notice that you were trespassing,” Diaz said.​
Diaz terminated both officers, saying they had trespassed at the Capitol in violation of Washington law.​
“Obviously the events at the Capitol have been mired in politics, and we expected this to happen and we prepared, we prepared accordingly,” said Seattle Police Guild President Mike Solan.​
Solan says the guild will defend the officers if they decide to appeal, and he says the case against them has holes.​
“We need a timeline, as far as the timestamp of those two photographs could capture by the FBI in that video, and that doesn’t exist.”​
Asked why a timestamp would make a difference if the pictures show the officers standing at the Capitol while people scaled the walls, Solan replied, “It’s a good question. I think it would basically give them more of a succinct timeframe of to your point when the capital was breached, what they did witness at the time.”​
Chief Diaz declined a KIRO 7 interview request, but guild president Mike Solan told me that the SPD had already scheduled an appointment with the officers to terminate them, even before hearing a final defense from union leaders.​
The Seattle Community Police Commission (CPC) issued a statement noting that Seattle Police had more officers at the Capitol that day than any other police department in the country. The CPC said it “continues to demand SPD transparently, aggressively and publicly address extremism in the ranks.”​

They should hire counsel and look into protecting their first amendment right to free speech. If they attended a protest but were not charged with any kind of violence then that department has no business in presuming to regulate the speech or actions of private citizens. This whole Jan 6th drama is going to lead to some serious repercussions before we're done. That was a protest. Not ONE citizen has been charged with "insurrection" or any other crime worse than vandalism and trespassing. What the thugs in DC are doing is tyrannical and they'll pay a price one day. They are too damned arrogant and corrupt to believe they'll ever be held accountable but their day WILL come.

If they lied to their employer...game over.

As much as you trump Nazis would like it to be, "giving false or inaccurate statements when they were being interviewed as part of the investigation into their activities," is NOT free speech protected by the First Amendment.

And yes, the trump Nazis' willingly acting on the instructions given them during their wannabe führer's pep talk on the morning prior to their violent storming of the Capitol Building, is, indeed, an attempted insurrection.

Prosecutors and everyone else involved in the lessening of charges of the insurrectionists, will very soon regret that decision. After the 2022 Midterm elections, these very same prosecutors will see violence by the trump Nazis aimed at every politician that challenges the traitorous Q-nuts' insanity the trump Nazis send to Congress.

In a Republic, actually

The willfully ignorant right.

Obviously you didn’t bother to read the linked article – this has nothing to do with the First Amendment or free speech.

The police union is on standby waiting for instructions from the two former officers on how/when to proceed with a claim against the police department. Their rights are being upheld.

If you're trying to insinuate that they are the same guy, you totally fail.

The man carrying the confederate flag doesn't have gray hair. Officer Fanone has a lot of gray hair.

The man carrying the confederate flag has a scar in the middle of his forehead. Officer Fanone doesn't.

I know why the image of the rioter is just a little fuzzed. So that the scar wouldn't be as easily seen. I saw it. Took a screen shot and put it through Photoshop. I sharpened the photo and the scar popped right out for everyone to see.

I know why the photos of officer Fanone are of him with his forehead and brow are wrinkled. So you can't see that there is no scar.

I went looking for a photo of officer Fanone without his forehead wrinkled. There is no scar.

They are two very different people and for you to try to pass this off is just pathetic.

Just to let you know, I'm a professional photographer. I've been using Photoshop since it's first version in the 1980s.

I can spot a fake, a photoshop and deception in a photo from a mile away.

This one you tried to pass off is just extremely lame.
