BREAKING: U.S. House Wraps Week Early Under Threat

AP’s Lisa Mascaro reports, it’s insurrectionist deja vu all over again:

The U.S. House is abruptly finishing its work for the week given the threat of violence at the Capitol by a militia group seeking to storm the building, as happened in a deadly siege Jan. 6.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer notified lawmakers late Wednesday of the sudden schedule change.

The decision was made given the threats on the Capitol, according to a Democratic aide granted anonymity to discuss the matter.

NBC News Washington:

U.S. Capitol Police have intelligence that shows “a possible plot to breach the Capitol by an identified militia group” on Thursday, nearly two months after a mob of supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the iconic building to try to stop Congress from certifying now-President Joe Biden’s victory…

Capitol Police received “new and concerning information and intelligence” on Tuesday afternoon indicating “additional interest in the Capitol for the dates of March 4th – 6th by a militia group,” Acting House Sergeant at Arms Timothy Blodgett said in a message Wednesday morning to members of Congress.

Looks like “Fort Pelosi” will need to stay on alert a little while longer, folks.

Another Lauren Boebert zinger that didn’t age well.

    Great news:  the threat was announced during the Senate hearings on January 6.  Tough to have any police, Guard or military unit say they were NOT warned of the possibility.
