The pair of pipe bombs found at the DNC and RNC headquarters on January 6 were planted the night before the deadly assault on the U.S. Capitol, the FBI announced on Friday.

In a wanted poster, the FBI said that it has learned new information about the bomber, stating that the bureau now believes the still-at-large suspect planted the devices between 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. (EST) on January 5 at both political parties’ headquarters.

The bureau has increased its monetary reward to up to $100,000 for information leading to the location, arrest, and conviction of the individual—or individuals—responsible for the placement of these pipe bombs.

The wanted poster, which shows what appears to be a still photo of the suspect from security footage, says the person “wore a face mask, a grey hooded sweatshirt, and Nike Air Max Speed Turf shoes in yellow, black, and gray. The individual carried a backpack in their hand.”

As the mob descended on Capitol Hill on January 6, the pipe bombs were discovered within minutes of each other around 1 p.m. before they could be detonated.

The bombs were eight inches in length and constructed out of galvanized steel, according to a law enforcement official, CNN reported Wednesday. The devices had been rigged to egg timers and packed with an explosive powder, the official said. Currently, investigators are examining the remains of the bombs at the FBI lab in Virginia.

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.

Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”

Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”

When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”

“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.

Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
