The man who accosted the president on Tuesday at a GOP policy lunch, shouting “Trump is treason!” and throwing Russian flags at him, was on a watch list, according to Congressional security sources contacted by Fox News.

Ryan Clayton, of the group Americans Take Action, was known to security officials, and had earlier taken part in a Russian flag related ruse at CPAC.

There are reports of a second possible intruder who was at the Capitol building at the same time as Ryan Clayton’s publicity stunt. Fox News provided a description of him as a “middle-aged man who stood about 6 feet, 3 inches tall and was dressed in a gray suit and bow tie.”

“I’m a tourist,” the man said when confronted by journalists, and he reportedly bragged about being able to “sneak inside the Ohio Clock Corridor in the Capitol building.”

The disturbing news comes as JFK files have spilled into the limelight, providing a much-needed reminder that the president’s security is of utmost importance.
