Secret Service waited to tell Capitol Police of Pelosi threat until the Jan. 6 riot was underway

SACRAMENTO — A government watchdog group says it has obtained emails showing the Secret Service identified a social media account threatening Speaker Nancy Pelosi two days before the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, but did not notify Capitol Police until the insurrection was underway.

The email, which Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington posted online Wednesday, says the Secret Service identified “a social media threat directed toward Speaker Nancy Pelosi” on Jan. 4, 2021. An unidentified “intelligence research specialist” in the Secret Service sent the message to an email address for the U.S. Capitol Police, according to the copy the watchdog group posted on its website.

The email says the Secret Service discovered a post on the social network Parler, a favorite of right-wing users, that threatened then-President-Elect Joe Biden, which said, “we CANNOT allow #Biden to enter the white house.”

Anthony Guglielmi, a spokesman for the Secret Service, confirmed that the email was authentic. He noted that Pelosi, D-San Francisco, is not a protectee of the Secret Service, which oversees security for the president. The messages were sent to Capitol police out of “an abundance of caution” even though they did not contain “a specific threat of violence to her on that evening,” he said.

This is why IMHO current and past social media should be monitored for threats of violence by the FBI, perhaps a special task force.

Authors of posts of concern then visited with a search warrant for weapons mentioned in the social media posts and other related material.

The warrants would be served by the FBI complete with SWAT, weapons seized, and author of threats be charged as appropriate. Bet illegal weapons would be found often. Give these traitors what they fear and let them call federal law enforcement fascist and Nazi. Something akin to this approach is required to secure and provide safety to the nation. Otherwise, we will continue to suffer continued acts of violence and stochastic terrorism. IMO Faux and like media should be shut down and suffer monetary damages for the deaths, damage, and increased cost of security for the BS they spew to the ugly hearted and weak minded. Enough is enough, people in the USA should be protected. Unhealthy to raise children in this environment where violence and threats of violence is the norm.

1. My wife found a now shut down site that was rabid

Frothing at the mouth. Direct stuff about Nancy and other plans. The.Donald if memory serves. I figured it was known (it was shut down a few days before I think) and not THAT unique in content. It was all over the place.
