“Based on the intelligence that we have, the department has taken immediate actions to enhance our security posture and staffing for a number of days.”
WASHINGTON– In an email sent to all members of Congress, acting House Sergeant at Arms Timothy P. Blodgett alerted of “new and worrying details and intelligence suggesting additional interest in the Capitol for the dates of March 4– 6 by a militia group.”
The alert gotten Wednesday marks the first notice of a multi-day security threat against Congress, based upon intelligence
examined by the U.S. Capitol Police. “We do have some worrying intelligence, “acting U.S. Capitol Police Chief Yogananda D. Pittman told House members in a hearing Wednesday.”
We have improved our security posture, and we've let the National Guard and our partners understand what to anticipate tomorrow.” Online chatter from QAnon supports the false concept that former President Donald Trump might still be inaugurated on March 4. The date represents a historic marker when U.S. presidents previously took the oath of workplace, until Franklin Delano Roosevelt's second term in January 1937.
