0 43

US congressional police chief Yujananda Bateman warned Thursday that intelligence indicates that extremists may be planning an attack on the Capitol.

During a hearing before the House of Representatives on the bloody violence in Congress on January 6, Bateman added that the authorities know that members of the militia groups that were present in the January attack “expressed their desire that they wanted to blow up the Capitol building and kill as many members as possible.”

Bateman stressed that it is wise and “based on this information, for the Capitol Police to maintain a strengthened and strong security posture to address these gaps in the future.”

The rebels, who stormed the Capitol, not only wanted to attack members of Congress and policemen, they also wanted to “send a symbolic message to the nation about who is responsible for that legislative process,” Bateman emphasized.
