Kamala Harris was present at the Democratic National Committee headquarters last year when a pipe bomb was found outside of the facility, Politico has reported, citing four unnamed individuals said to be "familiar with her movements that day."
Capitol Police and the Secret Service evacuated a "protectee" on Jan. 6, 2021 shortly after Capitol Police had started investigating the device, the outlet reported, citing a Capitol Police timeline of what had transpired. Politico said that the four sources verified that Harris was the protectee mentioned in that timeline.
Authorities are still attempting to ascertain the identity of the individual who put pipe bombs at the Democratic National Committee Headquarters and the Republican National Committee headquarters on Jan. 5, according to the FBI's Washington Field Office which noted that both bombs were viable.
"Both devices were viable and could have been detonated, resulting in serious injury or death. The #FBI and @ATFHQ are offering a reward of up to $100,000 for info. leading to the location, arrest, and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the placement of the bombs," a tweet from the FBI Washington Field Office states.

Harris delivered a speech on Thursday marking the one-year anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. During her remarks, she drew a parallel between Jan. 6 and other notorious dates in U.S. history.
"Certain dates echo throughout history, including dates that instantly remind all who have lived through them where they were, and what they were doing, when our democracy came under assault," Harris said. "Dates that occupy not only a place on our calendars, but a place in our collective memory: December 7th, 1941, September 11th, 2001, and January 6th, 2021."
