Democratic lawmakers say the threat of domestic extremism remains high almost one month after protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol.
With six floors, 600 rooms and 1.5 million square feet, the U.S. Capitol Building is vast – and a challenge to adequately secure.
The major debate in security circles right now is whether it’s best to protect the Capitol with high fences, gates and a visible police force, or protect it from the inside by dominating the points of entry.
Capitol Police have proposed high, permanent fencing around the Capitol grounds. The idea is opposed by DC’s Mayor and members of Congress.
The House took an unprecedented step Tuesday night, voting to levy hefty fines against colleagues who bypass the recently installed metal detectors that surround the chamber.
The fines — $5,000 for the first violation, $10,000 for any thereafter — are just the latest security measure to be implemented in an attempt to reassure members and their staff that the House is safe. But that remains an elusive goal, lawmakers said Tuesday as they returned to a Capitol still surrounded by concrete barricades and barbed wire.
And one video allegedly shows that the U.S. Capitol unveiled a new warning system that signals the building is under attack.

We can’t confirm the validity of the video even do residents that live in Washington D.C. say they saw the hologram.
People alleged who is on the hologram and Michael Jackson and AOC got most votes:
is that AOC spinning around the Capital in her drama pose for the cameras? pic.twitter.com/t7xX35daLU

I wish the Dems would put 1/8th the effort into the horrible riots, looting, fires, and murders that went on this summer. The second it happened to them, they shut Washington down, sent in an unheard-of amount of Guardsmen, without a plan to feed and house them.
