Multiple law enforcement agencies are trying to find people involved in the incidents of Wednesday and early Thursday — including the discovery of two pipe bombs in the nation’s capital. The FBI is offering a reward of up to $50,000 for information about who placed the bombs in Washington.
The devices, which authorities say are similar, were found at the headquarters of the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee. The offices are two blocks away from each other, south of the Capitol building.
The FBI released a photo showing a person of interest wearing a gray hoodie and a face mask, holding what looks to be a backpack or small suitcase. The agency is urging anyone with information to contact the FBI through either its tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI or to share images or video at the special website it has set up about the riot.
“The violent and deadly act of insurrection targeting the Capitol, our temple of American Democracy, and its workers was a profound tragedy and stain on our nation’s history,” Pelosi said. “But because of the heroism of our first responders and the determination of the Congress, we were not, and we will never be, diverted from our duty to the Constitution and the American people.”U.S. Capitol Flag Will Fly At Half-Staff; FBI Offers Reward Over Pipe Bombs : Insurrection At The Capitol: Live Updates : NPR
