    The military has officially been in Washington, D.C. for 50 days following the Capitol riot earlier this year, but it’s still unclear how long troops will stay there. The initial plan in early January was to provide approximately 340 National Guard troops to support the city government during protests expected to take place on Jan. 6, the day that the Senate was expected to certify the election.   However, the protest turned into a deadly riot, and a mob of former President Donald Trump’s supporters breached the Capitol building, requiring additional support from the National Guard. Authorities also had to consider the security of Biden’s upcoming inauguration, prompting an additional deployment. Law enforcement officials and members of the National Guard set up security perimeters ahead of President Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 16, 2021 in Washington, D.C. (Kaylee Greenlee – Daily Caller News Foundation) Fifty days later, officials have offered mixed responses to questions about whether there remains a security threat warranting the current number of troops in the Capitol. It’s also unclear how long troops will be required to stay...

Proud Boys leader arrested for allegedly burning Black Lives Matter banner at DC churchNow, two local judges from the Washington, DC, Superior Court have ordered Tarrio to attend a court hearing on February 22 to explain why his bail shouldn't be revoked, following a dispute over whether Tarrio has stayed in touch with DC court officials while awaiting trial.

    MIAMI (AP) — The Biden administration turned down a meeting request with El Salvador’s president on an unannounced trip to Washington last week, as criticism of the Central American leader mounts among Democrats, three people with knowledge of the decision said Monday. The trip by Nayib Bukele, which has not been previously reported, came after a senior White House official warned in an interview with a Salvadoran news outlet highly critical of Bukele that the Biden administration expected to have “differences” with him. Bukele was quick to embrace former President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration policies restricting asylum requests, which won him a great deal of U.S. support for his tough governing style in El Salvador, where he is popular. But like other world leaders befriended by Trump, he faces an uphill climb pivoting to the Biden administration, which is seeking to undo those policies and has signaled its relationship with El Salvador is under review. The president’s surprise trip amid a pandemic posed a dilemma for U.S. policy makers. They were given little advance notice and are mostly avoiding in-person...

    WASHINGTON -- Troops in riot gear lined the streets of the nation's capitol, but there were no crowds. Armored vehicles and concrete barriers blocked the empty streets around the U.S. Capitol. From behind miles of fencing, Joe Biden was safely sworn in as president in a Washington on edge, two weeks after pro-Trump rioters besieged the U.S. Capitol.Law enforcement officials contended not only with the potential for outside threats but also with rising concerns about an insider attack. Officials were monitoring members of far-right extremist and militia groups, increasingly concerned about the possibility such groups could stream into Washington and spark violent confrontations, a law enforcement official said.There were a few scattered arrests, but no serious disruptions in the city during Biden's inauguration ceremony.As Biden put it in his address: "Just days after a riotous mob thought they could use violence to silence the will of the people, to stop the work of our democracy, to drive us from this sacred ground, it did not happen. It will never happen. Not today. Not tomorrow, not ever, not ever."After the deadly...
    Defense officials in Washington, D.C., are concerned about an insider attack from service members deployed to Washington, D.C., for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all 25,000 National Guard troops in the city, Fox News has learned. The Associated Press first reported on the extraordinary security effort. The U.S. Army issued a statement late Sunday obtained by Fox News that said it is working with the Secret Service to determine if any service members on hand need additional background screening. The statement said that all service members are familiar with the Threat Awareness and Reporting Program, which "requires department personnel to report any information regarding known or suspected extremist behavior that could be a threat to the department or the U.S." CAPITOL 'ZIP TIES' SUSPECT'S MOTHER ARRESTED IN TENNESSEE, CHARGED WITH CONSPIRACY The riot at the Capitol earlier this month that left five dead and resulted in dozens of arrests prompted officials in the city to take drastic measures to ensure the Biden inauguration is secure.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack or other threat from service members involved in securing President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event. The massive undertaking reflects the extraordinary security concerns that have gripped Washington following the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump rioters. And it underscores fears that some of the very people assigned to protect the city over the next several days could present a threat to the incoming president and other VIPs in attendance. Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy told The Associated Press on Sunday that officials are conscious of the potential threat, and he warned commanders to be on the lookout for any problems within their ranks as the inauguration approaches. So far, however, he and other leaders say they have seen no evidence of any threats, and officials said the vetting hadn’t flagged any issues. Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    New York (CNN)Bureau of Prison officials in New York gave their bosses in Washington, DC, a heads up before hauling Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal attorney, back to prison late last week, a law enforcement official told CNN.New York prison officials reached out to Washington after Cohen balked at a provision in a home confinement agreement that prohibited his engagement with the media, but before he was led away in shackles by US Marshals, the official said. The decision to detain Cohen was ultimately the call of local Bureau of Prison officials, the official said, noting that the call to counterparts in Washington was only out of courtesy and not because of any political interference. "Nobody in BOP ever discussed what his conditions should be," the official said, using the acronym for the Bureau of Prison. "Nobody gave direction on how to handle Michael Cohen as far as BOP was concerned." Bureau of Prison officials did not respond to a request for comment.Read MoreCohen's lawyers have said the former Trump attorney never said he wouldn't sign and was...
