17. This quote may indicate an even longer coup plan:

The majority of the Capitolís 658 single-pane windows were quietly upgraded during a 2017-19 renovation of the historic building. The original wooden frames and glass were covered with a second metal frame containing bomb-resistant glass.

But planners skipped about a dozen ground-floor windows, including some located in doors, because they were deemed to be low risk in the event of implosion, largely due to their discreet or shielded location, or because the building couldnít structurally handle the load of the heavier frames.


Emphasis mine to note that these renovations happened on Trump's watch.
