Michael Smith came to the attention of the USCP when a
complainant advised that he had made threatening comments
that he would come to the US Capitol and force an armed
confrontation with US Capitol Police Officers. That information
was transmitted to officers so that they could take appropriate
action in the event he attempted to carry out his plans.
The USCP Criminal Investigations Division initiated an investigation
in conjunction with the FBI who was also interested in Smith
in an unrelated criminal matter. Based upon the information
obtained by the USCP, the FBI was able to secure a search
warrant for his residence, that was served today.
