FBI says Washington pipe bombs were planted night before the Capitol siege
The bombs were placed outside the Republican and the Democratic national party headquarters a few blocks apart on Capitol Hill.

The FBI disclosed Friday that investigators believe two pipe bombs discovered near the U.S. Capitol were planted the night before the Jan. 6 siege.

Based on analysis of videos recorded by surveillance cameras in the area, investigators said whoever planted the bombs did so between 7:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Jan. 5. The bombs were discovered the next day, as Congress was preparing to certify the Electoral College votes for president.


Videos obtained by the FBI and independently by The Washington Post, which posted them on its website, show a person believed to be the suspect walking through the neighborhood, wearing a gray hoodie, a mask and carrying a backpack.

The FBI said the suspect also had distinctive footwear -- black, gray and yellow Nike Air Max Speed Turf shoes.

How many black, gray and yellow Nike Air Max Speed Turf were bought in the US. How would you like the assignment of tracking that down.
