New U.S. Capitol Threat Puts Capitol Hill on Edge

By Cje95 | Texas Boy in a DC World | 4 Mar 2021


Yesterday I wrote a post about what the Sergeant at Arms had sent out to the staff about possible security issues tomorrow due to the QAnon belief of March 4th is the "true Inauguration Day". Well after being told that the chatter among the far-right had died down that is no longer the case. 

 

U.S. Capitol Police has been informed of intel indicating additional interest in the Capitol for not only just March 4th now but the 4th-6th by an unnamed militia group. Furthermore, Homeland Security and the FBI have sent out that some groups are going much much further than just protesting. Groups have reached the idea that they should take control of the United States Capitol and remove democratic lawmakers around March 4th. 

 

This is completely crazy and I cannot believe I am in a situation like this. It is not even 2 months after the initial siege of the Capitol and somehow these individuals seem to think that the 5,000 armed National Guard members are just going to sit by as this happens. This is just an embarrassment to all sides and the country as a whole. As of now though they have not informed us to stay away. It would not surprise me to hear that different offices move to 100% remote for tomorrow and possibly through the end of the week. 

 

As always stay safe out there everyone! It might be a rough couple of days up here in DC.
