The Capitol Police gave Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) a security detail after the Islamic State made an online threat against the congresswoman, law enforcement officials told Politico.

Police will provide security through the end of Bachmann’s term.

Both Bachmann’s office and the Capitol Police declined to comment to Politico.

“The U.S. Capitol Police does not discuss law enforcement operations or security regarding Members of Congress,” Capitol Police spokeswoman Kimberly Schneider told Politico.
