The FBI warns of armed protests in US cities | abroad
The channel said that an armed group plans to head to Washington on Saturday to revolt there if an attempt is made to remove President Trump from office. The House of Representatives took the first steps to that end earlier on Monday.
Certainly, there are security concerns in Washington after the storming of Parliament last Wednesday. Many measures have already been taken or announced in the run-up to Biden’s inauguration on January 20, after the threats arrived. The National Guard is allowed to equip up to 15,000 men to march safely.
Washington Monument is closed to threats
The memorial in Washington will be closed until at least the end of next week due to constant threats from groups involved in the riots around the Capitol building last week. The Director of National Parks and Monuments decided to do so.
The National Park Service said in a statement that the threats included preparations and activities during the inauguration of future President Joe Biden. So guided tours are no longer available since Monday. Also, roads, parking lots and restrooms on the National Mall, the area between the Capitol Building and the Washington Monument, may be closed to “protect public safety and the park.”
The mayor of Washington has previously called for more security measures when Joe Biden is sworn in. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that it will enter into talks with “local, regional and federal partners” to arrange better cooperation.
