Here we go again with yet more vague "threats" by nebulous militant right-wing groups targeting the Capitol which will no doubt be met with an additional mass increase in security measures (and budgets no doubt) walling the public off from the whole area...
Yikes. U.S. Capitol Police statement just out: "We have obtained intelligence that shows a possible plot to breach the Capitol by an identified militia group on Thursday, March 4." pic.twitter.com/LcxhOO5lKs— Jennifer Bendery (@jbendery) March 3, 2021
The official Capitol Police statement cites 'credible intelligence' of "a possible plot" in the works by an "identified militia group" to breach the Capitol.
It's set for Thursday (March 4), the statement indicated.
The group, however, is not identified in the press release, but Axios and others are linking it to the events of January 6, writing:
QAnon conspiracists have peddled the baseless claim that March 4 is the date of Trump's true inauguration. This is based on the fact that presidents were inaugurated on March 4 prior to 1933.
