Pelosi: National Guard to Remain at Capitol 'as long as they are needed'; House Democrats, QAnon Confounded as Rumored Capitol Rebellion Fizzles, and related stories

Pelosi: National Guard to remain at Capitol 'as long as they are needed':
Speaker Nancy Pelosi said thousands of National Guard troops at the U.S. Capitol should remain “as long as they are needed,” following a request by the Capitol Police that they stay in place for another two months.
“We have to have what we need when we need it, and in the numbers that we need,” the California Democrat told reporters Thursday in response to the Capitol Police request. “But that’s a security decision.”
Thousands of troops remain in and around the Capitol.
They’ve been in place since the Jan. 6 attack by a throng of pro-Trump protesters who stormed into the building and forced lawmakers to flee to safety.
Following the attack, Capitol officials erected 7-foot, nonscalable fencing topped with barbed wire around the perimeter of the campus. --->READ MORE HERE

House Democrats, QAnon confounded as rumored Capitol rebellion fizzles:
House Democrats and QAnon conspiracy theorists now share one thing in common: Both made predictions for Thursday that didn’t come true.
House lawmakers fled the gated fortress that has become the U.S. Capitol, canceling sessions for Thursday and Friday over Internet rumors that QAnon supporters were planning to storm the building.
QAnon believers, meanwhile, were left scrambling to figure why their expectations that former President Donald Trump would return to power Thursday fizzled.
It was just another partly cloudy day in the nation’s capital, as both sides were left embarrassingly trying to explain what happened.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi downplayed the link between scrapping two workdays and the reported threats. Instead, the California Democrat said the move was to accommodate Republicans, who were holding a retreat this weekend. --->READ MORE HERE
