The U.S. Capitol is partly shut down for Thursday, because of threats in social media to launch another citizen attack on the building, like the one on January 6th.
Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson tells WIZM’S ‘La Crosse Talk’ there’s always concern about threats in Washington, but he hopes that nothing will come of this latest conspiracy talk.

Johnson says although the January riot at the Capitol in Washington was a very bad experience, he thinks some people make it sound worse than it was. The senator says it appears only a small number of the protesters had firearms.
