Washington D.C. police have found a cache of weapons in the Capitol just days before Trump’s inauguration, sparking fears that an assassination is being planned for January 20th.
The discovery of a violin case containing two guns prompted police to uncover more guns and ammunition nearby. The discovery of these weapons comes just days after Russian intelligence officials warned of a plot by the U.S. deep state to assassinate the President Donald Trump.
U.S. Park Police and D.C. police Wednesday afternoon investigated the two areas where the weapons were found. Traffic on Canal Road near the boathouse had been stopped during the investigation but the road has reopened.
A woman walking along the canal late Wednesday morning saw some debris surrounding a violin case along the stone wall that lines the road, according to park police. When she opened the case, she found two guns inside, and she brought it to authorities near Fletcher’s boathouse.
About a quarter-mile north of that location, investigators found a second site with multiple weapons and ammunition surrounded by trash and other debris.
Park Police spokeswoman Sgt. Anna Rose said there were a variety of weapons recovered, including long guns and pistols. The weapons were in buckets and bags, Rose said, although she said she didn’t believe any of them were loaded.
“There’s no indication as to why these weapons were here, when they came to be here or the circumstances surrounding it — that part’s all under investigation,” Rose said.
Rose said there was no imminent threat to people walking nearby. But authorities decided to close the road out of an abundance of caution and to keep the area clear as investigators worked. Authorities reopened the road to traffic around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.
The D.C. police bomb squad also conducted a sweep of the area.
Police praised the woman who spotted the weapons.
“This woman saw something and she chose to come forward and say something, giving us the opportunity to make sure this area remains safe for everyone,” Rose said. “And as we approach the inauguration, I think that’s really important to highlight.”
Mean while another media threat created fake news about Trump. “Human Rights Watch is placing President-elect Donald Trump on a list of people who they deem a “Threat to Human Rights”. BS !!!! 100% BS by the media.
The organization say that Trump’s political philosophy promotes intolerance and spreads hatred throughout America.
“Donald Trump’s election as US president after a campaign fomenting hatred and intolerance, and the rising influence of political parties in Europe that reject universal rights, have put the postwar human rights system at risk,” the group announced.
The 687-page World Report analyzes Trump’s campaign, pointing to his rhetoric as a cause for worry over human rights violations.
“(Trump’s) campaign floated proposals that would harm millions of people, including plans to engage in massive deportations of immigrants, to curtail women’s rights and media freedoms, and to use torture,” the report says, quoting Human Rights Watch Executive Director Kenneth Roth.
“Unless Trump repudiates these proposals, his administration risks committing massive rights violations in the US and shirking a longstanding, bipartisan belief, however imperfectly applied, in a rights-based foreign policy agenda.”
Human Rights Watch goes on to say that politicians in Europe, as well as Trump, could lead to “tyranny.”“Trump and various politicians in Europe seek power through appeals to racism, xenophobia, misogyny, and nativism. They all claim that the public accepts violations of human rights as supposedly necessary to secure jobs, avoid cultural change, or prevent terrorist attacks. In fact, disregard for human rights offers the likeliest route to tyranny,” Roth wrote.
Human Rights Watch is a global nonprofit, nongovernment group that does research and reports on human rights conditions in 90 countries.
Its new report analyzed the U.S. election as well as politics across Europe.
