  • FBI: Evidence Indicates Siege Of Capitol Planned, Not Spontaneous

    Investigators now believe the attack on the US Capitol last week was not just a protest that spiraled out of control.

The FBI reported that it has received more than 126,000 digital tips from the public regarding the attack on the Capitol.
