Lawmakers, staff to avoid Capitol…

As Capitol security officials gird for Saturday’s pro-Trump rally in Washington, lawmakers and their aides have been given a simple directive: steer clear of the building.

“Unless required to be onsite, Members and staff are strongly encouraged to avoid the U.S. Capitol Complex on September 18th,” House Sergeant at Arms William Walker wrote in a memo sent chamber-wide on Tuesday evening.

If they must visit Capitol Hill on Saturday, House lawmakers and their employees should park in underground garages and move between buildings by way of underground tunnels, rather than walking outside, Walker advised.
