At a glance

  • Police letter details threatening actions of “Colbert Nine’s” during TV comic’s Capitol raid.
  • President Biden’s Justice Department decided not to file charges, very unlike J6 reaction.
  • Democratic congressman’s staff feared for their safety and called for emergency help.
  • The description that authorities provided members of Congress this week — loud banging on doors, talk of a “cocaine orgy” and threats to place something under a congressman’s door — is far different than the light-hearted account of “first-degree puppetry” that the CBS television comic offered after last month’s high-profile arrest of his team.
