House Democrats surrender to QAnon, scrap March 4 session amid fortified Capitol


Leaders of the House of Representatives decided to scrap planned votes on Thursday due to reports that QAnon conspiracy theory adherents may attempt to storm the Capitol in a far-fetched scheme to return former President Donald Trump to office, according to a Democratic congressman. The Capitol complex is ringed with non-scalable, barbed-wire topped 8-foot fences and is still guarded by hundreds of National Guard members following the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, during which a mob of Trump supporters smashed into the building and disrupted certification of President Biden’s victory. But House leaders were fearful enough of another assault to move Thursday votes to Wednesday night, Rep. Jim Himes (D-Conn.) told CNN. “Yeah, that’s correct, that’s correct,” Himes said, confirming the House would not be in session Thursday due to the possible threat.
