Acting DHS Secretary resigns as FBI issues chilling warning

Chad Wolf, the acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary, announced his resignation after instructing the U.S. Secret Service to begin National Special Security Event operations for the inauguration a week early. Meanwhile, the FBI issued a chilling warning about “armed protests” planned at the U.S. Capitol and all 50 state capitols. The FBI is also tracking threats against President-elect Joe Biden, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Jonathan Wackrow is a former Secret Service Agent during the Obama Administration. He joins AC360 to react to the FBI’s warning and Wolf’s resignation. Plus, Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown is calling for his colleagues, Republican Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, to resign after they both voted to overturn the election after rioters overran Capitol Police and breached the U.S. Capitol. Senator Brown says the Senate should expel them if they don’t resign. He tells Anderson Cooper the Senate needs to “take action.”   Airdate: January 11, 2021   Guests: Jonathan Wackrow Sen.
