Citing unnamed individuals with knowledge of the proceedings, it specifies that U.S. authorities are trying to understand whether any participants in the attack on the U.S. Congress intended to kill or capture lawmakers or their aides. Such investigations are aimed at those involved in the Capitol assault who were carrying weapons or other suspicious items and equipment, the article says. “We do not view this [the invasion of Congress] as a grand conspiracy. However, we are interested in finding out what people intended to do with items such as [used as handcuffs] plastic ties,” a U.S. law enforcement official told the newspaper.
