January 20 – The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) said on the 19th that the day before the inauguration of President-elect Biden, security officials from local and federal agencies were on high alert.
In addition to strengthening security around the inauguration venue in Washington, D.C., the search for a bomb maker is also the focus of its attention.
According to Fox News on the 19th, on the eve of Biden’s inauguration, the threat of explosions in downtown Washington is still very large.
It is worth noting that on January 6, the same day as the violent clashes in Congress, bombs were found near the headquarters of the Republican National Committee and the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee just a few blocks from the Capitol, and the suspects involved are still at large.
One law enforcement official who knew the matter said that catching the suspect remained a “first priority”.
The FBI believes that suspects may plan to launch a similar attack on the President’s inauguration Day, and the search for improvised explosive devices deserves high attention.
It is reported that when the President of the United States’s inauguration day arrives, more than 25,000 U.S. National Guard soldiers will be on guard around the Capitol, and the White House, the National Square and other federal buildings and surrounding areas will be blocked.
At present, the FBI is continuing to monitor online statements that violence will reappear.
