Early reports are coming that there is a truck and the driver has stated it is loaded with explosives. He is seen holding a triggering device and surrounding buildings have been evacuated. Snipers and US Capitol Police on Premise.




A man sitting in a black pickup truck outside the Library of Congress told police Thursday that he had a bomb, prompting a massive law enforcement response to determine whether it was an operable device, law enforcement authorities said.

Police evacuated multiple buildings around the Capitol after officers observed the man holding what appeared to be a detonator, U.S. Capitol Police Chief J. Thomas Manger said. The man’s name was not immediately disclosed.

Police negotiators were communicating with him as he wrote notes and showed them to authorities from inside the truck, according to three people who were not authorized to publicly discuss the matter and spoke on condition of anonymity.


Here comes the 'don't look at Afghanistan' we have terrorists at home angle. I hope this is resolved but it is still ongoing at this time.

He better be careful. Ashil Babbitt was shot for less.

UPDATE



UPDATE: Law enforcement officials have told an NBC reporter, there is nothing in the pickup truck that resembles an explosive device. The reporter noted the concern of an explosive device was based off of statements from the driver.

In addition to reports of SWAT, reports of dump trucks, which have been used as road blocks in the past, were seen being escorted into the area by law enforcement.

It also appears there is a K9 unit on the scene.

Police are now clearing the nearby area:


If there is no threat of explosives why are they still clearing it out?

There was a live stream supposedly from the man on Facebook but it appears to have been taken down.

I can put quite a bit under a truck seat. I could also rig a substantial amount of a popular plumbing product to empty into the gas tank that you wouldn’t see either. Of course there is always a false bottom to the truck bed to consider. Tires have quite a bit of hidden storage space as well

They just said the dude was live streaming a video on FB....wonder what it said.

Apparently it was quickly yanked from FB. Anyone able to find it anywhere and post it up?

Speculation he is a Iraq or Afghanistan war vet.

ETA: video

Maybe the driver is refusing to put on a mask.

Saw this, also:

An eyewitness says she saw a man in a black pickup truck in front of the Library of Congress shouting he had “a bomb” while tossing dollar bills out of the window.

Now we know the man is Jerome Powell, but just today I saw an article where they said the Fed is looking to taper.

Sure did. You should post it here so I can watch it later. Are you saying that she's alive and well? Living on beach or some snip?

That seems highly likely. They can't be worried about a bomb being set off, worried about any resulting inferno and wanton destruction of property, as that would simply be peaceful protest.

Something else to think about with her case... people shot in their thin neck with a 9mm pistol at close range not only bleed a lot, but there is an exit wound, and there is a spray of blood, bone and tissue that comes out of that exit wound along with the bullet.
None of that was present.

Wow I thought this thread would be a few pages deep know. His live stream stuff is on Instagram. He's from North Carolina and says if anyone shoots at him he's gonna detonate the bomb and take a couple blocks with him.

The purported "bomber" sounds like another dimwit who has been drinking too much Kool-Aid...
