FBI WARNED OF 'WAR' AT CAPITOL: The FBI holds a briefing on the Capitol Attack. Despite brief statements from the president and White House press secretary, there has been no formal briefing from the U.S government on the domestic terror attack that until now.
New reports suggest that the FBI warned other officials of the threat of violence at the U.S. Capitol a day before the pro-Trump rioters violently broke into the building, forcing members of Congress and their staff to go into hiding. The Washington Post reports that an FBI office in Virginia warned officials that extremists were planning on attacking the Capitol and engaging in ‘war’ with lawmakers. This new information directly contradicts previous statements from the FBI and the Justice Dept that claimed they had no knowledge of the plans.
Meanwhile, the FBI has also issued a warning to all state legislators to brace for potential violence and armed protests at each of their state capitals. ‘Armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols from 16 January through at least 20 January, and at the US Capitol from 17 January through 20 January,’ according to an FBI bulletin obtained by ABC News. Acting U.S. Attorney for Washington, D.C. Michael Sherwin and FBI Washington Field Office ADIC Steven D’Antuono speak to the press now to provide the latest updates regarding the attacks at the Capitol.
