U.S. Homeland Security officials issues domestic terrorist warnings
Some Michigan members of Congress say they want more clarity about security procedures on Capitol Hill.
That comes as U.S. Homeland Security officials are issuing a warning that domestic terrorists are targeting elected officials and government facilities.
In a zoom call with the Economic Club of Washington D.C., Dearborn Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Dingell said she’s long been in the cross-hairs of some claiming to support former President Trump.
“I’ve been in his hate tunnel for a couple of years, where I’ve had the militia in front of my house…where my antenna is always up. They’re trying to make my life uncomfortable. I don’t think any of us really realized how serious it was, what the threats were.”
Homeland Security officials say the recent attack on the U-S Capitol appears to have em-boldened “violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition.”
It’s the first time the department has issued such a warning in about a year.
