“The threat assessment regarding members of the squad, who have recently clashed with President Trump, remains low compared to some other lawmakers”
The “squad”—consisting of Democrat Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Ilhan Omar (MN), Ayanna Pressley (MA), and Rashida Tlaib (MI)—has been vocal in pressing their socialist/communist anti-Semitic agenda.
When they are challenged on ideology and/or policy, they toss out the race card as their go-to shutuppery weapon. They’re indiscriminate in this victimhood whining and recently felt backlash from their own party after gobbling a hubris pill and trying that clumsy move on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
The leftstream media has been reporting on the Squad’s insistence on greater security because they claim they’re being targeted more often and receive more threats because Trump. While there has been an increase in threats against Congress members, this includes both Republicans and Democrats.
Even in their articles with headlines like “Threats against members increasing, Capitol Police chief says,” the leftstream media buries the lede: “Sund noted that a much lower percentage of threat cases investigated meet the threshold of being a credible threat, but he did not provide an exact percentage breakdown.”
As it turns out, Capitol Police “confirmed to Fox News that there has not been an increase in threats [against the Squad]. In fact, officials imply that the freshmen are not targeted as much as they claim to be, especially compared to others on Capitol Hill. The police worry if they respond to all the ‘noise’ around them right now, they may miss more legitimate and serious threats to others.”
Congressional security officials have met with all four members of the “squad,” comprising Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., over concerns about their safety as lawmakers.
Fox News has learned that threats have not increased for them this week.
. . . . The threat assessment regarding members of the squad, who have recently clashed with President Trump, remains low compared to some other lawmakers.
One source told Fox News that even though the four had been in the news a great deal, they were still low-profile, freshman members.
Some lawmakers’ significant others are more worried about safety than the lawmakers themselves.
There is concern in the security ranks that if the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) responds to the “noise” surrounding the squad, it may actually miss more bona fide threats against other lawmakers.
Patience with the Squad is wearing thin on both the left and the right. They don’t seem to understand that they are wearing out their welcome in record time.DONATE
