United States Lawmakers Worried About the Possible Activities of Conspiracy Theorists
The events that unfolded in the premises of the Capitol Hill Building on the 6th of January 2021 are still fresh in the memory of many lawmakers. This is considering how many of these policymakers had to hide and were scared for their lives.
But almost 2 months after the incidents, some of these lawmakers are worried in light of intelligence reports and the details of some conspiracy theories.
About the Intelligence Reports and Conspiracy Theories
Key defense organizations like the Federal Bureau of Investigations and possibly the Department of homeland security have been trying to prevent a recurrence of the incidence. This is considering the rate at which these security agencies have been giving Intel to the Capitol Hill Police Department.
One of such reports states that the premises of Capitol Hill remain a prime target for perpetrators of internal terrorism. Armed groups such as Oath Keepers, Proud Boys, and several others are being closely monitored by these security agencies.
This Intel suggests that a/some militia groups will make another attempt at this historic building. The purpose of the planned attack is to disrupt the legislative process and eventually unseat the current president to return power to the ex-president.
While some sources are taking these claims as mere threats and with a pinch of salt, some lawmakers are worried about the situation. As a result, they are demanding that the National Guard be stationed permanently on the premises and that security be given more attention.
The Panic Is Disrupting Legislative Procedures
Frankly, the situation is taking its toll on the activities of lawmakers. For instance, a hearing on the Covid-19 stimulus package bill had to be suspended after some worrying Intel.
The Intel suggests that conspiracy theories about the return of the ex-president on the 4th of March will see the Capitol Hill premises attacked on the 4th of March. For this reason, the lawmakers had to suspend their legislative decisions.
