New F.B.I. Video Shows Person Planting Bombs At DNC During Capitol Insurrection

The F.B.I. released a new video last week showing a more detailed view of the person suspected of planting pipe bombs at the Democratic National Convention and Republican National Convention headquarters during the Capitol insurrection.

“These pipe bombs were viable devices that could have been detonated, resulting in injury or death. We need the public’s help to identify the individual responsible for placing these pipe bombs, to ensure they will not harm themselves or anyone else,” said Steven D’Antuono, assistant director of the F.B.I.’s D.C. field office.

F.B.I. agents confirmed that both pipe bombs appeared fully functional; they were stuffed with a homemade gunpowder and a kitchen timer.
