Washington Post: FBI report warned of ‘war’ at the U.S. Capitol

The Washington Post has released its access to an FBI report which allegedly warned of ‘war’ at the U.S. Capitol, undercutting claims there was no intelligence to suggest there would be violence

“As of 5 January 2021, FBI Norfolk received information indicating calls for violence in response to ‘unlawful lockdowns’ to begin on 6 January 2021 in Washington. D.C.,” the document says. “An online thread discussed specific calls for violence to include stating ‘Be ready to fight.

Go there ready for war. We get our President or we die. NOTHING else will achieve this goal.”
