Government officials believe Jan. 6 Capitol Breach anniversary could be of concern
Conspiracy theories among extremists named as potential cause for further violence
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KYMA, KECY/CNN) - Government officials are warning "threat actors" could take advantage of the upcoming anniversary of the January 6 U.S. Capitol Breach.
According to an intelligence assessment issued Thursday to state and local officials, no specific or credible threats are currently being investigated. It is all a precaution.
The assessment says conspiracy theories could again inspire domestic violent extremists to promote or commit violence.
Federal officials said lone offenders are the most likely to exploit the upcoming anniversary.
This assessment was prepared by the Department of Homeland Security, FBI, U.S. capitol police and other law enforcement agencies.
