There is an unprecedented amount of security in the U.S. Capitol. Eerie streets stand closed, heavy snow removal trucks and concrete barriers stand guard. And endless rows of soldiers line them in quiet command against known and unknown intruders. But what about the states’ Capitols. Do not let New York Attorney General Letitia (Tish) James’ soft voice fool us. She is on the job.
She warned against “all threats:”
‘After last week’s deadly attack at the U.S. Capitol, my office is closely monitoring all threats against the New York State Capitol. We won’t hesitate to take legal action against anyone who seeks to terrorize or harm legislators, Capitol staff, law enforcement, or the public.’
The FBI is handling the issue in two ways. First, there was an information bulletin. Then, major cities had a phone call with FBI Director Chris Wray.
Americans are exceedingly worried. They are facing a pandemic, loss of jobs, and government overreach. No wonder they are anxious as officials tell them the threats should be taken very seriously. Just ask James.
The powerful woman said her office is “closely monitoring all threats” against New York State’s Capitol. The AG warns that her people “won’t hesitate to take legal action.” Those who intend to “terrorize or harm” those in the Capitol will have to go through her first. Our bet is on AG James.
Twitter world loves AG James. Check out what they had to say about her tweet below:
