( – BREAKING NOW: Just moments ago, in an announcement that caught the media and even some of his staff off guard, President Joe Biden’s press operation announced that Buden will deliver a speech tonight from Union Station on Capitol Hill, across the street from the United States Capitol in Washington, DC.

Fox News is now reporting in a news account headlined “Biden to deliver unscheduled DNC speech at Union Station near Capitol”:

“President Biden will deliver remarks on ‘preserving and protecting our democracy’ at a Democratic National Committee event in Washington, D.C., White House officials and the DNC said Wednesday.

“The president is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. ET at the Columbus Club in Union Station, where he will address ‘the threat of election deniers and those who seek to undermine faith in voting and democracy,’ according to a DNC advisory.” [emphasis added]

As for the timing of the speech and the location:

“[White House senior adviser Anita] Dunn said that Union Station was chosen as the venue for the president’s address because of its proximity to Capitol Hill, where the Jan. 6 riots took place nearly two years ago.

“‘On January 6, we saw violence geared towards subverting democratic processes there. So it is, you know, it’s an appropriate place to make these remarks tonight,” Dunn said. She added that most Americans find political violence ‘abhorrent’¬†and cited the brutal attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, as a recent example.” [emphasis added]
