(WASHINGTON D.C.) JUST IN: A man has been arrested after making a bomb threat near the LIbrary of Congress building on Thursday evening #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.20: US Capitol Police had been negotiating with the driver who had parked a pick-up truck near the Library of Congress, across the street from the Capitol building and Supreme Court.

#AceDailyNews says …..Washington DC: Man arrested over bomb threat near US Capitol, he was identified as Floyd Ray Roseberry, 49, surrendered hours after the threat was made.

Site of suspicious car
Multiple Capitol Hill office buildings have reportedly been evacuated

His motives remain unknown. Police are still searching the vehicle. 

Congress is currently in recess, but some staff are working in the Capitol. Several office buildings were evacuated.

Videos purporting to be the man livestreaming from the vehicle have been shared on social media. Facebook has deactivated the livestream and removed the profile.

In the video, the man addressed US President Joe Biden directly and spoke of revolution.

Mr Roseberry had parked the vehicle on a pavement and told an officer who approached him that he had a bomb, while holding what appeared to be a detonator, Capitol Police Chief J Thomas Manger told a news conference. 

Police communicated with Mr Roseberry via a white board and used a robot to deliver him a telephone, which he did not use, Chief Manger said. Mr Roseberry then stepped out of the vehicle and surrendered.

“He gave up and did not resist and our folks were able to take him into custody without incident,” Chief Manger said.

Police said they discovered possible bomb-making materials in the vehicle, but no bomb. Two law enforcement sources, who requested anonymity, told the Reuters news agency that it appeared Mr Roseberry had acted alone.

Federal agents raided Mr Roseberry’s home in Grover, North Carolina, during the standoff.

Neighbours told Reuters that Mr Roseberry is a Republican who had been seen wearing a “MAGA” cap to show his support for former President Donald Trump.

Security was heightened around the Capitol after supporters of Mr Trump stormed the building on January 6. At least 535 rioters have been arrested since the attack.

(WASHINGTON,D.C.) LATEST: Man who rammed a car into ‘Capitol Building’ named as citizens morn the passing of a police officer who was killed on Friday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.03: Noah Green was named as the knife-wielding, now-deceased suspect who tried to ram a car into a U.S. Capitol barricade, exiting with a knife, and killing a Capitol police officer and injuring another:

Man who rammed car into Capitol barricade and charged officers with a knife was follower of Nation of Islam: NBC’s Pete Williams reports on @MSNBC:

The suspect in Capitol Police incident is a 25 year old Indiana man named Noah Green. May have lived in Virginia. On his Facebook page, he notes that he is a follower of the Nation of Islam. Suspect is now dead: Two officers were taken to the hospital. “It is with a very heavy heart that I announce that one of our officers has succumbed to his injured.”

His name was released as Billy Evans who knew he wanted to be a U.S. Capitol Police Officer from the time he was in college, friends said. “He and one of his best friends actually became Capitol Police officers together, so it was a dream of his in college,” his childhood friend Jason LaForest said. “He carried his badge proudly; spoke of his service proudly.”

“Noah Green: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know,” by Jessica McBride, Heavy, April 2, 2021:

The suspect was first named by MSBNC’s Pete Williams and other NBC journalists, who said he was 25 years old and from Indiana. Authorities have not yet confirmed the name.

“BREAKING / NBC News: Multiple senior law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation say Noah Green, 25 year old male, from Indiana is the person who attacked the Capitol today,” wrote NBC journalist Tom Winter.

The Capitol police chief Yogananda Pittman said in a news conference, “It is with heavy heart that I come here this afternoon to shed some light on the incident that occurred at the U.S. Capitol.” The suspect entered the “north barricade” of the Capitol.

“The suspect rammed his car into two of our officers and then hit the north barricade barrier… the suspect exited the vehicle with a knife in hand. Our officers then engaged that suspect. He did not respond to verbal commands. The suspect did start lunging toward U.S. capitol police officers at which time U.S Capitol police officers fired upon the suspect. The suspect has been pronounced deceased.

“This has been an extremely difficult time for U.S. capitol police after the events of Jan. 6, said Pittman.

Chief Robert Contee of Washington Metropolitan Police said the homicide unit is taking over the investigation in connection with the “shooting death that occurred as well as the officer’s death.” He said there was not an “ongoing threat.”

He said it doesn’t appear the suspect was known to the Capitol police. He said it doesn’t appear to be terrorism-related but police will continue to investigate.

The incident came just three months after the January 6 Capitol riots left multiple officers injured, but the suspect’s motive is not yet clear.

CNN reported that Capitol police shot the suspect after he brandished a knife. Williams reported that the suspect is dead.

The latest incident broke out on the afternoon of April 2, 2021, and led to a lockdown of the Capitol as debate continues to swirl in Congress about security measures and fencing at the historic building….

Journalist Jonathan Dienst wrote on Twitter that, according to a senior law enforcement source, preliminary information is that the “suspect jumped out of vehicle with a knife.”…

(WASHINGTON) Justice Dept Report: A Pennsylvania & West Virginia man were arrested Sunday on criminal charges related to their alleged conspiring to injure officers and assaulting federal officers, among other charges #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.17: According to court documents, Julian Elie Khater, 32, of State College, Pennsylvania, and George Pierre Tanios, 39, of Morgantown, West Virginia, were arrested on Sunday in connection with a complaint filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., charging them with conspiring to injure officers and assaulting federal officers, among other charges, on Jan. 6. Khater was arrested as he disembarked from an airplane at Newark Airport in New Jersey. Tanios was arrested at his residence in West Virginia:

Two Men Charged with Assaulting Federal Officers with Dangerous Weapon on January.06: ‘Defendants Sprayed U.S. Capitol Police Officers B. Sicknick and C. Edwards, and Metropolitan Police Department Officer D. Chapman with a Chemical Substance’

Khater and Tanios are each charged with one count of conspiracy to injure an officer; three counts of assault on a federal officer with a dangerous weapon; one count of civil disorder; one count of obstructing or impeding an official proceeding; one count of physical violence on restricted grounds, while carrying dangerous weapon and resulting in significant bodily injury; and one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct, act of physical violence on Capitol grounds.

According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, Khater and Tanios were at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, and were observed in video footage working together to assault law enforcement officers with an unknown chemical substance by spraying officers directly in the face and eyes.  During the investigation, it is alleged that law enforcement discovered video that depicted Khater asking Tanios to “give me that bear s*it.” Tanios replied, “Hold on, hold on, not yet, not yet… it’s still early.”  Khater then retrieved a canister from Tanios’ backpack and walked through the crowd to within a few steps of the police perimeter.  The video shows Khater with his right arm up high in the air, appearing to be holding a canister in his right hand and aiming it at the officers’ direction while moving his right arm from side to side.  The complaint affidavit states that Officers Sicknick, Edwards, and Chapman, who were all standing within a few feet of Khater, each reacted to being sprayed in the face.  The officers retreated, bringing their hands to their faces and rushing to find water to wash out their eyes.

The FBI’s Washington Field Office, with assistance from the FBI Pittsburgh and Newark Field Offices, the United States Capitol Police, and the Metropolitan Police Department are investigating the case.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, with valuable assistance from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of West Virginia and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Jersey are prosecuting the case.

Anyone with tips can call 1-800-CALL-FBI (800-225-5324) or visit tips.fbi.gov

A criminal complaint is a formal accusation of criminal conduct for purposes of establishing probable cause, not evidence of guilt.  A defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.

WASHINGTON: ‘ PRIVATE EMAILS PUBLISH BY MEDIA REVEAL LACK OF SUPPORT FOR HILARY CLINTON ‘

#AceWorldNews – WASHINGTON – October 16 – A prominent Capitol Hill newspaper has republished a host of previously private emails from some of the most active and influential Democratic Party operatives in the country.

What they reveal is a nearly universal dislike and lack of support for presumed Presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

The unsuspecting authors include journalists, editors, union leaders, fundraisers, `progressive leaders and Party strategists. 

According to an exclusive report from The Hill, the name of the semi-secret online group of progressive political leaders is Gamechanger Salon.

Showing the club’s exclusivity, to join, one must be sponsored by a current member.

The account describes the 1,500-member on-line group saying, ‘The group includes prominent Democrats, Sierra Club officials, journalists who work for The Huffington Post and The Nation magazine, senior union representatives, leaders at the Progressive Change Campaign Committee and the president of NARAL.’

‘ White House Security Breach as Chief Faces Lawmakers ‘

#AceWorldNews – WASHINGTON – September 30 – Most Washington scandals that end up on Capitol Hill tend to end the same way: with an apology.

Secret Service Director Julia Pierson will face lawmakers Tuesday for the first public accounting of the details surrounding an embarrassing and worrisome security breach at the White House earlier this month that, according to a congressman, was worse than the Secret Service has publicly acknowledged.

The question is, will she follow the script?

NHTSA: ‘ Senate We are Under Staffed and Under Funded to Cope as Watchdog Over GM Debacle ‘

#AceNewsServices – UNITED STATES (Washington) – September 17 – The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found few allies on Capitol Hill Tuesday.

nhtsa

A House committee, a Senate committee, and the Department of Transportation’s inspector general’s office all agreed that the agency does not have the staff it needs to be an effective watchdog over car defects.

Defective ignition switches in GM cars contributed to at least 13 deaths, forced GM to recall more than two million vehicles this year, and led NHTSA to impose a $35 million penalty against GM for failing to promptly report the defects.

Joseph Comé of the Department of Transportation’s Inspector General’s office told a Senate hearing that NHTSA’s Office of Defects Investigation has yet to finish an assessment to figure out “the number of staff and specialized skills needed” to ensure that it can force carmakers to promptly recall defective vehicles and potentially save lives.

Comé also said the IG’s office is still determining if NHTSA had information on ignition switch problems or non-deploying air-bags in GM cars and simply did not use that information prior to the recalls.

' House Rules Committee Hearing on Initiating a Lawsuit Against President Barack Obama Over Affordable Care Act '

#AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – July 16 – The House Rules Committee holds a hearing on initiating a House lawsuit against President Barack Obama over failing to enforce the Affordable Care Act.

The hearing begins at 10 a.m. and you can watch live above:

` John Boehner Reportedly Insisted There is No Conspiracy to Push an Immigration Bill Through the House '

#AceNewsServices – UNITED STATES – House Speaker John Boehner reportedly insisted Tuesday there is no “conspiracy” to push an immigration bill through the House – but a top Democrat suggested not only is there a deal in the works, it’s an open secret.

The conflicting messages further blurred the status of immigration talks on Capitol Hill.

Boehner just two months ago appeared to slam the brakes on negotiations altogether, blaming the administration’s failure to enforce existing immigration laws.

But GOP leaders, including Boehner, have signalled lately they’re at least interested in bringing back a bill.

Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer, at an immigration event Monday in New York, went further and seemed to claim a bill is in the works.

(The Hill) – Boehner last week told a home-town Rotary Club in Ohio that many of his colleagues “take the path of least resistance” rather than make hard choices like confronting a broken immigration system.

“Here’s the attitude. ‘Ohhhh. Don’t make me do this. Ohhhh. This is too hard,’” Boehner said in a high-pitched voice, likening his fellow Republicans to a small child.

On Tuesday, meeting with Republicans after they returned from a two-week recess, Boehner told lawmakers it was just a little teasing.

“There was no mocking,” he told reporters at a press conference after the meeting. “You all know me. You tease the ones you love, alright?

But some people misunderstood what I had to say, and I wanted to make sure members understood that the biggest impediment we have to moving immigration reform is that the American people don’t trust the president to enforce or implement the law that we may or may not pass.

“I have said it here; it’s the truth, and the members know it’s the truth,” Boehner added.

The Speaker drew immediate criticism from conservatives in the conference, who suggested they didn’t take his remarks as a joke.
