House to adjourn early over intelligence that groups may be planning another Capitol attack [View all]

Source: Washington Post

The House of Representatives will take its last votes of the week this evening, ending its workweek early after Capitol Police warned of reports that an unnamed militant group planned to breach the Capitol on Thursday.

The schedule change came after Capitol security officials warned of credible threats of violence by right-wing extremists who have fabricated the false claim that March 4 is the “true Inauguration Day” when former president Donald Trump will be sworn in for a second term.

House Sergeant-at-Arms Timothy P. Blodgett told lawmakers in a Wednesday memo that the Capitol Police have “enhanced their security posture” in response and noted that National Guard troops remained posted on the campus. The memo also encouraged members and staff to park in garages and use underground tunnels whenever possible — similar to the guidance they gave ahead of the Jan. 6 riot.

Rather than risk being at the Capitol, the House moved up votes on a policing reform bill that was scheduled to be debated on Thursday. Instead it is expected to be passed Wednesday night along with debate and passage of a voting rights bill.
