Capitol under lockdown before inauguration

Those able to penetrate the militarized perimeter around the U.S. Capitol have sighted a busy city amid preparations for Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration.

Three days before the presidential inauguration, Washington, DC is under a historic military lockdown, facing the twin threat of covid-19 and further attacks following the siege of the U.S. Capitol on January 6. “Hey sir, how are you? Where are we going? “DC looks like something I’ve never seen, I’ve been to the last two openings, and this is the first time I’ve been to the opening and it looks like it’s a battle site. It is the site of a war. What you see behind me shows that we have not had a peaceful transition of power. 25,000 National Guard troops, along with Capitol Police, Metro Police, Secret Service and Border Patrol are stationed around Washington, DC, ahead of the January ceremony. Trump’s militia flags and banners are gone for now, but President Trump’s unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud still dominate his supporters. “I feel very safe here. And at peace because I don’t wear anything like that, ‘Trump’ says on it. I came here on January 6th for the event, the rally. I was not in the group of anyone who entered the Capitol. I wasn’t even close to the Capitol. And I walked out because I felt it was important for electoral integrity. I believe our democracy will fail if Joe Biden is sworn in as President of the United States. [Music] The U.S. capital and state capitals across the country will remain under tight security this week, amid widespread concerns over violence from right-wing extremists. Groups linked to the January 6 uprising.

Video: Pelosi: Security requires “truth and trust”

When we talk about security, we have to talk about truth and trust. In order to serve here with each other, we have to trust that people keep their oath of office, respect this institution. We have to trust each other. If, in fact, members of Congress are found to have been complicit in this insurgency, if they have aided and abetted the crime, it may be necessary to take action beyond Congress and in terms of prosecution. We must, however, object this whole complex to close scrutiny in light of what has happened and the fact that the inauguration is imminent. To that end, I have asked retired Lieutenant-General Russel Honoré to lead an immediate review of security, infrastructure, interagency processes, and command and control.

Ocasio-Cortez says she feared for her life during the Capitol riot

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she and other members of Congress “were almost murdered” during the siege and felt that some of her colleagues would have put her in danger on purpose.

Wednesday was an extremely traumatic event. And it is no exaggeration to say that scores of MPs were nearly assassinated. We were very fortunate that things happened in a matter of minutes that allowed MPs to escape Cape Town – the floor of the House unharmed. But many of us have almost and narrowly escaped death. I didn’t even feel safe going to, that checkout point because there were QAnon and white supremacist sympathizers and, frankly, white supremacist members of Congress, in that checkout point. , which I know and who I think would disclose my location and allow me to – which would create opportunities for me to be injured.

Acting Attorney General vows to hold Capitol rioters accountable

Jeffrey A. Rosen, the acting attorney general, said those involved in the attack on the U.S. Capitol would be held accountable and there would be no tolerance for future violent attempts to disrupt the transfer of power.

A week ago, our nation collectively watched in horror as a violent mob stormed Capitol Park, knocked down crowd control barriers, assaulted Capitol Police officers and invaded the Capitol complex. Lives were lost. The storming of Capitol Hill was an intolerable, shocking and tragic episode in our nation’s history. I am, however, grateful that order was restored on Capitol Hill the same day and that Congress was able to fulfill its duties. Under the US Constitution. More than 70 people have been criminally charged. We have opened more than 170 investigations. The FBI has assembled more than 100,000 digital public advice. And there is much more to come. Those at fault will be held responsible. As we look to the future, we are also aware of other events planned in and around the upcoming grand opening. The Department of Justice fully supports and will protect the exercise of constitutional rights. But I want to send a clear message to anyone considering violence, threats of violence, or other criminal behavior. We will have zero tolerance for any attempt to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power on January 20 that our Constitution calls for. We will not tolerate any attempt to forcibly occupy government buildings. There will be no excuse for violence, vandalism or any other form of lawlessness. To the American public, I ask that if you are aware of any planned criminal activity or violent acts, please share what you know with law enforcement or the FBI.
