In print today: US, Iran agree to nuclear deal talks; #Biden to rebuild America’s creaking infrastructure; #GoodFriday Christians pray for relief from virus; #CapitolAttack One officer dead, Capitol locked down; India, Pak LOC quiet as ceasefire resumes
I’m in the Capitol right now, and its eerily quiet/empty. House and Senate are both out of session.
Sometime after the attack on the Capitol begins at 12:53 p.m., Sicknick arrives here, at the embattled police line. The southern end of the line is quiet compared to the brawl happening around a hundred feet north, but the mob is swelling.
All quiet at the US Capitol despite 'possible plot' to breach building
Quiet at the Capitol. No #Qanon no protests but plenty of National Guard, guns, barriers, razor wire and fencing. It’s a shame this is our reality now. The fear of threats is real even if they are just threats
How long will fencing remain up at the U.S. Capitol? Despite a quiet night so far after threats against the building today, the increased security could be the new normal for at least 2 more months. @FitzFox5DC has the latest from Capitol Hill. WATCH:
Scene here at the Texas Capitol on the first day of the legislative session. With a couple hours until chambers gavel in, building is pretty empty/quiet except for heavy DPS presence (also outside). #txlege
Reality: Neither the House nor Senate is in session in a meaningful way. It’s dead quiet here in the Capitol. Not a single public news event on the schedule.
The scene outside the Capitol right now: a swelling crowd of chanting protesters. “No! No! No!” Inside, in the marble halls, it’s quiet hours ahead of the vote. A few senators strolling around, their aides peering out the windows, stone-faced, as the cries grow louder.
.: It's "impossible to imagine a Democratic president doing this, and Republicans on Capitol Hill being as quiet as they are.” It's not partisan politics, it's whether or not you accept that a president is going to try to insert himself into an investigation
