According to an intelligence assessment issued on December 30 to local and state authorities, the U.S. federal officials are cautioning that threat actors might take advantage of the coming anniversary of the 6th JAN Capitol Hill attack, though there’re presently no specific or credible intimidations.
The intelligence assessment reads they assess that threat actors may attempt to exploit the coming anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection to encourage or possibly commit violence. Moreover, it reads lone-offenders are the most possible threat to the anniversary.
Furthermore, according to an intelligence assessment prepared by the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP), and other law enforcement agencies, conspiracy theories about the massive voter fraud continue to reverberate among domestic violent extremists (DVEs) and could one more encourage some to promote violence.
Also, the assessment says that Russia, Iran, and China have amplified content regarding the U.S. Capitol attack or the forthcoming anniversary and continue to spread descriptions about American election fraud. In addition, some Russian news outlets have amplified content about future events by the current and ex-Presidents for the Jan. 6 anniversary.
Brian Harrell, the former DHS Assistant Secretary, told CNN that what’s not astonishing is that DVEs are still fixated on the 6th JAN events. However, what should give them a break in proceedings is how nation-state adversaries will use these types of happenings to create anxiety amongst the US public. Fabrication continues to be a ‘go-to’ policy to provoke society.

False. The @January6thCmte hasn’t dropped requests for any necessary records. In fact, we’re actively litigating to obtain White House records Trump is trying to conceal. We will not allow him to hide the truth about January 6th, or his conduct, from the American people. pic.twitter.com/q2YBqVlyXq
