As Joe Biden's inauguration - which involves almost no actual people, but many, many flags - continues Wednesday morning, the Supreme Court has been evacuated due to a potential bomb threat, as the rest of the Washington DC area remains on lockdown.
An NBC News reporter broke the story.
Sources say US Supreme Court being evacuated due to possible bomb threat. @nbcwashington— Mark Segraves (@SegravesNBC4) January 20, 2021
Then at around 1020ET, a reporter from CNN "confirmed" the evacuation.
We're waiting on more details to come.
Right off the bat, the question seems to be...how the heck did a potential bomb get planted amid 25,000 National Guardsmen and the nation's most secure inauguration in DC ever?
