WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Following an FBI briefing on Tuesday on last week’s deadly violence in the U.S. Capitol, six top lawmakers from the House committees on national security, justice, oversight, intelligence and the military of US Representatives said in a statement that they are concerned about safety in the near future. “Based on today’s report, we have serious concerns about the ongoing and violent threats to our democracy. It is clear that more must be done to anticipate, penetrate, and prevent deadly and seditious attacks by domestic violent extremists in the coming days,” he wrote the legislators, including the President of the Judiciary, Jerrod Nadler, and the President of Intelligence, Adam Schiff, just over a week before the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.
