Kamala Harris was evacuated from DNC headquarters

Kamala Harris was evacuated: (CNN)On January 6, 2021, Vice President Kamala Harris was evacuated from the Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington after a nearby pipe bomb.

According to a former law enforcement official and a White House official, the then-vice president-elect was the nameless “protectee” listed as being evacuated from the premises at approximately 1:14 p.m. ET on January 6, 2021. According to an internal police timetable acquired by CNN, the evacuation occurred barely seven minutes after Capitol Police began investigating the threat.

Politico was the first to report on Harris’ evacuation. The attendance of Harris at the DNC was previously undisclosed.

When asked about being evacuated by reporters at the White House on Thursday, Harris declined to say.

Harris said she had been inside the Capitol that morning for a secret Senate Intelligence Committee briefing before leaving in remarks recognising one year since the insurgency.

“I was not just vice president-elect, but also a United States senator on that day. That morning, I was at the Capitol for a classified hearing with other Senate Intelligence Committee members. The Capitol’s gates were overrun hours later “According to Harris.

“I had departed. But my thoughts quickly shifted to my team, who had been forced to seek sanctuary in our office, transforming filing cabinets into barricades.”

As violence erupted in the Capitol, the Office of the Vice President-elect declined to comment on Harris’ whereabouts, but an aide assured CNN she was “safe.”

According to a timetable acquired by CNN, the DNC bomb threat was cleared at 4:36 p.m. ET

According to CNN, the device and a similar one put at the Republican National Committee’s headquarters were attached to egg timers and filled with explosive powder.

According to an account given to lawmakers by the acting chief of the US Capitol Police in January 2021 and an FBI poster seeking information on the suspect, the bombs were discovered within minutes of each other around 1 p.m. ET on January 6, 2021, just as a mob of angry supporters of then-President Donald Trump descended on the Capitol after a rally near the White House during which Trump spoke.

Following the insurgency, Harris returned to the Capitol about 8 p.m. ET to participate in the certification of the presidential election.

No one has been charged with the bombing, and the FBI is still looking for a suspect who has been identified in various recordings released in the previous year.

On the night before the US Capitol incident, the suspect is suspected of planting two pipe bombs near the RNC and DNC buildings.

A virtual map detailing the route the suspect travelled while setting the two bombs between 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on January 5, 2021 was revealed in September. Despite a $100,000 reward offered by the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the FBI has been unsuccessful in finding the perpetrator since then.

According to the FBI, the suspect is seen sitting on a bench near the DNC in the area where the pipe bomb was later put in CCTV footage released in September.

According to a news release from the FBI Washington Field Office, “reviews of the suspect’s behaviour in camera footage and interviews with people in the Capitol Hill neighbourhood have led the FBI to believe the suspect is not from the area.”

A person wearing a face mask, grey hooded sweatshirt, and black and light grey Nike Air Max Speed Turf sneakers with a yellow logo was seen in previous images and video carrying a backpack and wearing a face mask, grey hooded sweatshirt, and black and light grey Nike Air Max Speed Turf sneakers with a yellow logo.
