Militia groups want to 'blow up the Capitol' when Biden addresses Congress

Not sure where to put this. Seems like we need a fresh militia threat thread. There is the threat of a March 4 Trump event and more worrisome this CNN: Capitol Police chief warns militia groups want to 'blow up the Capitol' when Biden addresses Congress.
Quote:
Acting US Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman warned Thursday that militia groups involved in the January 6 insurrection want to "blow up the Capitol" and "kill as many members as possible" when President Joe Biden addresses Congress.

Pressed by House lawmakers to provide a timeline for removing the razorwire fencing and other enhanced security measures installed after the US Capitol attack, Pittman said law enforcement remains concerned about threats by known militia groups "with a direct nexus to the State of the Union" address.
We have time:
Quote:
Biden's administration is considering an address to a joint session of Congress later this year, though a specific date hasn't been identified.
Homeland Security is monitoring internet chatter. But it's going to be the lone wolves that are the hardest to stop.

Quote:
"The most significant terrorism-related threat currently facing the nation comes from lone offenders and small groups of individuals inspired by domestic extremist ideological beliefs, including those based on false narratives spread over social media and other online platforms," the spokesperson added.

If this belongs somewhere else, thanks in advance for moving it.
