…this time they’re cosplaying “Designated Survivor.” They want to blow it up. During the State of the Union, the date of which has not been set, but never mind that…they’re biding their time.
“We know that members of the militia groups that were present on January 6th have stated their desires that they want to blow up the Capitol, and kill as many members as possible, with a direct nexus to the State of the Union, which we know that date has not been identified,” testified Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman.

“That warning came during the House Appropriations Committee hearing about the security failures on January 6th. The police chief, there, explaining that this threat from extremists is why the fencing remains outside the capitol and why national guard troops are still manning the building,” Wallace explained.
