You know, designed to police the District of Columbia.

So why are they setting up regional offices across the country, beginning in Tampa, FL?

Matt Gaetz just sounded the alarm…

The WFLA has confirmed the story is true:

The United States Capitol Police is establishing two field offices, one in Tampa and the other in San Francisco, to investigate threats made against members of Congress.

“The field offices will be the first for the Department,” the USCP said in a statement sent to 8 On Your Side. “A regional approach to investigating and prosecuting threats against Members of Congress is important so we will be working closely with the U.S. Attorney’s Offices in those locations.”

Florida leads nation with more than 50 Capitol Riot arrests
Tuesday marked the six-month anniversary of the attack on the capitol, which resulted in two officer deaths and nearly 150 others being injured. Since that time, federal law enforcement have arrested and charged more than 500 defendants who now face charges for their part in the riot.

So has the Tampa Bay Times, here’s a portion of what they reported:

One of the first two field offices for the U.S. Capitol Police will open here in the coming weeks, the beginnings of a plan to substantially expand the agency’s geographic footprint beyond Washington, D.C.

Meant to bolster the agency’s ability to assess threats and provide security for members of Congress and their offices, according to the Capitol Police and members themselves, the expansion has drawn mixed reactions from politicians. It comes with the agency — which has long lacked transparency and has been the subject of scandal in recent years — still reeling from the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.

The announcement of the field offices came quietly in early July in the eighth paragraph of a press release titled “After the Attack: The Future of the U.S. Capitol Police.” The agency later said the offices would be in Tampa and San Francisco, which it picked because “a majority of our potential threats” come from Florida and California, but offered little other information. It did not respond to several requests for comment for this story.

U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor, a Tampa Democrat, met July 22 with Capitol Police officials and the sergeant at arms of the U.S. House, she said. The announcement presented the expansion as one of many changes in the wake of the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection. But Castor said officials told her they’ve been planning the field offices for years, since the 2017 shooting at a Congressional baseball practice in Virginia.

The agency’s duties won’t change, Castor said, but it will be able to collaborate more closely with local law enforcement and state and federal agencies.

“The fact that they’re coming to Tampa to expand law enforcement presence there makes me feel safer,” she said. “It’s vitally important that citizens feel safe coming to a (Congressional) office when they have an issue on their veterans’ benefits, their Medicare. I don’t want them to be deterred.”

The field office will in the Tampa Bay Regional Intelligence Center at the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office on N Falkenburg Road, where agencies including the Florida Department of Law Enforcement also have a presence.

Its opening is “imminent over the next few weeks,” Castor said. It’s unclear how many sworn Capitol Police officers and civilian employees will work out of the office or who will lead local operations. has also “Fact Checked” it and it sure appears to me like they are confirming it’s true as well.

The Facts on Capitol Police’s Tampa Office
By Robert Farley

In a July 6 press release about changes the U.S. Capitol Police is making in the wake of the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, the agency announced it is adding field offices in Tampa and San Francisco to investigate threats against members of Congress.

Since then, some Republicans have criticized the move as federal overreach or a partisan power play to target Jan. 6 Capitol protesters.

“What in the hell is the Capitol Police doing setting up an office in Tampa, Florida?” Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz said at a recent rally in Largo, Florida, on July 31, as part of his “Florida Man Freedom Tour.”

“I mean, they couldn’t even protect the Capitol in Washington, D.C.,” Gaetz said. “And I am a Florida man, so I am an expert on this, there is no Capitol in Tampa, Florida. It’s not even our state capital. And so I’m increasingly concerned that our federal government and many elements within it are using these exquisite national security authorities to turn against our own people. I will be opposed to the Capitol Police deciding to have mission creep right down the road in the Sunshine State.”

Gaetz is, of course, entitled to his opinion about whether it’s a good idea for Capitol Police to be opening field offices outside of Washington, D.C., but we thought it would be helpful to present some of the claims about USCP’s new field offices and how and why Capitol Police say they are branching out.

‘The Future of Capitol Police’
The announcement about the new field offices came in a July 6 press release from USCP. The release — “After the Attack: The Future of the U.S. Capitol Police” — outlined a series of steps the agency is taking since the Jan. 6 riot to “support our officers, enhance security around the Capitol Complex, and pivot towards an intelligence-based protective agency.”

Among the steps, the release said, the USCP is “in the process of opening Regional Field Offices in California and Florida with additional regions in the near future to investigate threats to Members of Congress.”

Tampa and San Francisco were chosen as the first field offices, a USCP spokesperson told us, because those two states are “where we’re getting a big bulk of the threats.”

The plan in Tampa is to open a small office — “just a few people” — to “speed up the process and work with the authorities in these states, as well as the prosecutors” to make sure these cases are properly investigated, the spokesperson said. So if, for example, someone made a threat against a member of Congress — an email or online post that is deemed a credible threat — the Capitol Police field office would assist the local investigation.

The spokesperson said the Capitol Police plans to open the two field offices by the end of the summer. And it anticipates opening more field offices in other locations around the country in the future.

The Pushback
In response to Gaetz’s comments criticizing the USCP’s field office plan, Florida state Rep. Anthony Sabatini tweeted that Gaetz “is exactly right” and vowed that next month, he will file legislation “to stop the Capitol Police from creeping into Florida.”

Earlier in July, the Hillsborough County Republican Party — which includes Tampa — tweeted (and then deleted) a letter from party Chairman and retired U.S. Air Force Col. Jim Waurishuk to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis calling on the governor to “put an end to the establishment of the Capital Police field office in Tampa.”

“We cannot allow this federal agency to operate in this State, circumventing the authority of our Sheriffs and our State Constitution,” Waurishuk wrote. “We cannot accept the establishment of a federal office that will claim a superior power to the State within our State.”

Waurishuk cited Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 of the U.S. Constitution, which he said establishes that the federal government cannot create a presence in the state without the state’s permission.

But some constitutional experts disagree.

“Absolutely this is within the constitutional power of the federal government to create these field offices to ensure they can protect the members when they’re completing their mission—their duties—representing their constituents whether in their home district or in Washington,” Michael McDaniel, a constitutional law professor at the Western Michigan University Cooley Law School, told WTSP Channel 10 in Tampa Bay.

“The state’s powers over law enforcement are very broad but within certain carve outs, and this is one of them, the federal government has plenary and primary jurisdiction,” McDaniel said.

A spokesperson for DeSantis criticized the opening of the new field office, but was noncommittal on whether the governor would seek to stop it.

“Congressional Democrats should focus more on the dangerous ‘defund the police’ movement taking hold of the left and less on political schemes,” the spokesperson told WTSP, adding, “When have the FBI or Florida law enforcement ever fallen short when Capitol Police asked for help?”

Republican Florida Sen. Rick Scott, however, praised the decision, WTSP reported.

“Senator Rick Scott has been clear that what happened on January 6 was absolutely horrible and disgusting, and that the individuals responsible for attacking the Capitol should be held fully accountable. He will continue to support efforts of Capitol Police and law enforcement,” Scott’s office said in a statement to 10 Tampa Bay.

Want to know what’s really going on?

I think I know.

And I think it’s all connected to this:

Clif High Explains Why Nancy Pelosi Refused Trump’s National Guard

I think this is going to blow some of your minds.

It did mine.

I’ve heard bits and pieces of this over the years and have always had a fair amount of skepticism about all the details.

But Clif High does incredible research and has a track record that speaks for itself.

And he’s pulled together a lot of details here that finally all make sense when you see the bigger picture coming together.

I won’t do it near justice in a summary, which is why you just need to listen for yourself, but the main points include the idea that we have “The Republic” and we have the Incorporated “United States”.

I’ve heard that floated around for a long time, but Clif gives specific details and citations as backup.

Beyond that though, is his explanation of Federal land claimed within the United States and how that has been growing and how that’s essentially a foreign nation with the “States United”.

He’s dead on right.

The biggest and most notorious area?

Washington, D.C.

Did you know that is it’s own area?

It’s not a State.

It’s not subject to the things States are subject to.

It’s ran by the Feds and their own laws however they see fit to enforce them.

Ever wondered why all the J6 Prisoners have been sitting rotting away in jail cells for over a year, when our Constitution has a little thing called Habeas Corpus?

It’s because it’s D.C. and they’re not following the Constitution.

Wonder why Nancy Pelosi refused Trump’s offer of the National Guard (National Guard coming from the STATES)?

Because she quite literally viewed it as an infringing militia coming into the Federal D.C. area.

All starting to make sense now?

In fact, it goes well beyond just J6 and D.C.

It explains the plan set in motion by Trump and the Patriots and how it goes back WAY earlier than 2016.

It’s all in here folks and it’s explosive!

As I said, Clif does a much better job than I do of explaining it, so please enjoy:

I actually don’t think Clif is on YouTube, that’s just an account that uploads his stuff.

I think he got kicked off, which is hilarious that this account can stay on.

If you want Clif’s authorized channel, he’s only on Bitchute.
