A rehearsal for the inauguration had to be called off and everyone in attendance evacuated on Monday morning due to an ‘external security threat’ that turned out to be a fire started by a homeless woman under a nearby bridge.
Military personnel and staffers ran from bleachers that were set up ahead of Wednesday’s event while an evacuation warning played in the background shortly after an ‘explosion’ was heard at around 10.30am.
As they panicked and ran for cover, plumes of smoke rose above the Capitol Building, where thousands of armed protesters staged an attempted coup on January 6.
