The news Getting around downtown D C is nearly impossible, and restrictions are only going to get tighter. W T. O P s national security correspondent Jake Jake Green joined W T. O P s John Doman on Skype to break down What's happening? They're actually four reasons for so much security won the inaugural. They want to make sure That there is a peaceful transfer of power from President Trump to President elect Biden. And we have to remember not only are their domestic concerns but as a regular thing on a regular basis. Whenever there's an inaugural, they're always international concerns, so the inauguration is first. Secondly, the capital riot is still fresh in everyone's minds, especially law enforcement, and they want to make sure they send the message that this will never happen again. And then there's significant intelligence as you mentioned about eminent threats, and they want to deal with that. They have to make sure that if there are threats that they won't come to anything, and the fourth thing is sending a message to those that are sitting on the fence, perhaps looking at everything and possibly thinking about planning something for the future, and the message is, don't do it because if you do, this is what you will get. There are a lot of local agencies on age a lot of federal agencies on edge. What of a bracing for today? Intelligence reports that we've seen and law enforcement have talked to us about about this as well that there are almost 20 distinct events that are being planned, at least on social media or in other chat rooms and other sources of against extremist conversation in Washington by militant groups between today. And the inauguration, and they're after many more planned nationwide, so that's what they're planning for the possibility that there might be these protests and what they're looking at is the fact that some of these protests will none of them really have a shadow of a chance of being successful because of all of the overwhelming overwhelming support and personnel there, But there may be some who are looking to make unexamined of themselves for its suicidal but it would be a message to comrades. That they hope would embolden them. Is the open nature of the capital and much of downtown D C. Ever going to come back again, or are things changing for good here? So a couple of people I've spoken to from the law enforcement community, both in contingent in the law enforcement community now and person who is retired, they say, we can expect some level of this. To stay in place for a while. Not all 20,000 troops. Not all this fencing, but we should expect a high degree of security for the short term, at least until the temperature in the nation is lowered a little bit and perhaps even until after that report, or at least investigation that the House is launched with General Honore to get to the bottom of what happened at the Capitol.

There's a lot of frustration really, from what it is. That's what led to this curfew. That's in place until six o'clock this morning. Not that it's been heavily enforced, but about half of your actual name or many of the arrest last night in overnight Sort of related to curfew violations. It's sort of ease up on that here this morning that if things were calming down, but there's just a lot of frustration that this all could happen. You know, D C police are certainly used to demonstrations and protests. No what they call around here First Amendment activities, But it's pretty clear that Capitol police were caught way off guard and unprepared for what happened. And it blemishes. The whole city in the city government is just Outraged and frustrated with the way things played out on, there's gonna be a lot of finger pointing about how it all happened, but for the most part that the city itself.
