Washington lawmakers were left terrorized after the U.S. Capitol came under attack on Jan. 6. The night before, Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) told her husband where her will was located if she was killed. Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser asked for National Guard support days in advance. Now, that fear has returned as some lawmakers face threats ahead of impeachment.
The Associated Press cited sources revealing that federal law enforcement officials are already investigating threats ahead of the beginning of the trial in the Senate.
An official explained to the AP that the threat of insurrectionists returning prompted the Capitol Police to ask 5,000 National Guard troops to stay in the Capitol longer.
"The official was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity," said the report.
