WASHINGTON (INTELLIHUB) — The White House activated a defensive posture on Sunday night at around 1 p.m. as violence and vandalism from angry protesters began to worsen.
Broadcast signals were jammed just after the last mainstream live feed concluded and remained that way until 5 a.m. in the morning when a local Fox affiliate went on air.
It was an eerie scene as red lights could be seen shining on the White House lawn while the rest of the building remained unlit altogether.
Scary stuff at the White House. It went dark. Then red lights came on. Then — apparently — all data feeds were cut. No feeds, pics, msgs, tweets since midnight I believe.
What are they doing to the #DCProtests? Pray they’re ok!

President Donald Trump was taken into the White House bunker as a defensive measure for about an hour as Secret Service sized up the situation.
Heavily-armed military personnel occupied the streets throughout the night.
As some of you pointed out, the middle officer has a suppressor attached to his rifle.

Historic St. Johns Church was set ablaze.
Downtown D.C. looked and sounded like a warzone throughout the night.
The latest in downtown DC: Cops had to seize 16th between H and Eye to control the fires. With the authorities tied up there — and still guarding Lafayette — crowds took off west down H, tagging everything in sight and shattering storefronts of restaurants and hotels. #DCProtests pic.twitter.com/vSwnfHOLqR
