Moments before the vote on repealing “net neutrality” rules, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) declared a recess, citing security advice.

“On advice of security, we need to take a brief recess,” FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said abruptly, while reading his opinion favoring the repeal. The live feed from the commission’s hearing shut off.

Homeland Security police cleared the room, instructing everyone to leave their belongings behind. No information was given on the nature of the security threat, prompting speculation that someone might have called a bomb threat.
