    Updated March 27 to include responses from the FBI and the State Department. Emails disclosed by a hacker show a close family friend was funneling intelligence about the crisis in Libya directly to the Secretary of State’s private account starting before the Benghazi attack.

    ( – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) did not respond to repeated questions about whether public citizens who ask him a question in the Capitol hallway should be physically barred from doing so by Capitol Police, as happened recently when reporter Jason Mattera introduced himself, shook Reid’s hand, and asked him a question about how he became a millionaire on a government salary.

    Law enforcement officials are investigating a threat against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who was vaulted into national prominence with his push to defund ObamaCare. A person identifying himself as Troy Gilmore Jr., posted on Twitter Friday morning: “Take down Ted Cruz, at his home” and listed Cruz’s home address in Houston. “What goes around comes around CRUZ!!” the person wrote. The author of the threat uses the Twitter handle @ArmyVet54 and identifies himself as having served in the U.S. Army and Navy. Sean Rushton, Cruz’s spokesman, said, “We’re aware of it and have alerted the proper authorities.” “I can’t comment...

  • Deadly Capitol Mayhem: Why Did Miriam Carey Travel From Connecticut to D.C.?

    Wild speculation abounds regarding today’s bizarre and fatal encounter today between various federal police agencies and a 34-year-old dental hygienist from Stamford, Connecticut, who beginning at 2:14 p.m. was first involved in some kind of confrontation at one of the White House gates. With her infant daughter inside her black Infiniti luxury sports coupe, the driver, an attractive, pleasant-looking (based on her Facebook photos published by various news outlets, and a photo found on her employer’s website) African-American woman by the name of Miriam Carey, ran down a U.S. Secret Service officer with the car as she abruptly turned the...

    Meanwhile, the department has installed a new leader of the elite unit. No reason has been given for the decision. Gunman Aaron Alexis killed 12 people. The BBC has also learned that four members of the highly trained team have applied for temporary leave, as they "grapple" with the aftermath of the incident. The Capitol Police department has not yet granted the request, nor given approval for them to use their own paid time off.

    A tactical response team of the Capitol Police, a force that guards the US Capitol complex, was told to leave the scene by a supervisor instead of aiding municipal officers. The Capitol Police department said senior officials were investigating. Aaron Alexis, 34, killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday. "I don't think it's a far stretch to say that some lives may have been saved if we were allowed to intervene," a Capitol Police source familiar with the incident told the BBC. A former Navy reservist, Alexis was working as a technical contractor for the Navy and...

    The state Capitol building in Madison has been occupied round-the-clock by protesters for nearly two weeks. Fourteen Democratic state senators are still on the lam, refusing to allow a vote on a budget-repair bill. And Gov. Scott Walker has been called everything from a new Hitler to rotting cheese. Yet the governor sounds unflappable. "I just finished eight years as county executive in Milwaukee last December," he told me during a telephone interview. "I've dealt with unions and angry legislators. I know anytime you challenge the status quo you have to be bold—and take the heat." Mr. Walker's challenge to...

    McKinney signs bill praising Capitol police By BOB KEMPER The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Published on: 05/17/06 Rep. Cynthia McKinney, who faces possible charges of assaulting a Capitol police officer on March 29, this week signed on as a co-sponsor of a House resolution praising the work of the Capitol police. McKinney, of DeKalb County, officially became a co-sponsor of a bill intended to "express the gratitude and appreciation" of the House for the department's "professionalism and dedication." There are 40 other co-sponsors, though those lawmakers signed on in early April when the resolution was first introduced as a way of chastising...

    Denny Scaffer in Atlanta brought up an interesting question today on his talk show. What was Patrick Kennedy wearing the night of his accident? For someone claiming to have risen from bed thinking he needed to rush to the Capitol to cast a vote, was he wearing his SpongeBob Sqarepants pajamas? Or was he still dressed in the clothes he wore the day before? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Investigation Continues as Congressman Enters Mayo Clinic May 5, 2006 — Capitol Police have taken disciplinary action against a watch commander for the handling of Rep. Patrick Kennedy's car accident, acting Capitol Police Chief Christopher McGaffin said. Lou Cannon of of the Fraternal Order of Police for the District of Columbia said there are questions about whether Rep. Patrick Kennedy received special treatment. (ABC News) McGaffin said the incident was improperly delayed due to "poor judgment" on the part of police managers and that a field sobriety test should have been administered to Kennedy after his car hit a barrier...

    Capitol police investigate motive behind story By Casey Ross Saturday, May 6, 2006 - Updated: 02:16 AM EST Police are investigating whether U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy’s bizarre crash-scene story about being late for a 2:45 a.m. vote was a desperate attempt to escape an OUI bust by invoking a law that prevents members of Congress from being arrested while en route to formal sessions, authorities said. Kennedy, who yesterday admitted an addiction to prescription pain medication, told officers upon emerging from his Mustang convertible Thursday morning that he was “late for a vote,” even though formal business had ended hours...

    A high-ranking official at the National Fraternal Order of Police cited the mishandling of Rep. Patrick Kennedy's (D-R.I.) car accident Thursday as just one more example of problems the Capitol Police Department is experiencing since Chief Terrance Gainer retired. Jim Pasco, executive director of the National Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), said the fact that no investigation was conducted after Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I) crashed his car into a security barrier at C and First Street SE was unacceptable but symptomatic of the way the Capitol Police Department is being run after Gainer's departure on April 6.Gainer retired after charges...

    A new term has been added to the racial victim lexicon: “Congress While Black.” This term was coined by the lawyer for an African-American Congresswoman, who assaulted a white Capitol Police officer. She did so after refusing to comply with the police officer’s legitimate request to identify herself. Democratic Party Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney of Georgia was not wearing her required identification when she entered the Capitol Building from the Longworth office building March 29. People without ID are required to enter through metal detectors. Members of Congress with ID do not. McKinney was not wearing her ID when she went...

    Please wear the pin, Ms. McKinney -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Controversial Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney might be charged with a crime after a physical altercation with a Capitol Police officer. But somebody needs to file multiple counts against McKinney of assault on common sense. The Georgia Democrat long has been one of the House's more inflammatory members. She has insinuated that the Bush administration knew about the 9/11 attacks before they were to happen, but no warning was issued nor action taken so that the Bush-backers in big business could profit from the war that ensued. McKinney has been quoted as saying that...

    WASHINGTON — Bucking the trend to break down walls between law enforcement agencies, the U.S. Capitol Police (search) has asked to be able to decline information requests from the executive branch. The Capitol Police insist this power is important to protect sensitive information from Freedom of Information Act (search) requests. The executive branch is subject to FOIA requests, but the legislative branch, of which the Capitol Police is a part, is not.

A preliminary test found that the substance was hazardous, the police said.
