Ater an ISIS (or ISIL – Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) threat against Rep Michele Bachmann emerged online last week, federal law enforcement took it seriously enough that Capitol Police have now assigned her a special security detail.
An online threat against Bachmann emerged recently, according to multiple law enforcement officials familiar with the situation. Last week, Bachmann was provided a security detail in response, according to the sources.
Technically no longer a Congressowman given her retirement, members of “the U.S. Capitol Police’s Dignitary Protection Division were briefed on the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. The police security will continue until Bachmann, who will retire at the end of this Congress, is no longer in office”.
