NEW TERROR THREAT POINTS TO PLOT TO SURROUND CAPITOL

Thousands of armed pro-Donald Trump extremists are plotting to surround the US Capitol ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, according to a member of Congress who was among those briefed late Monday on a series of new threats against lawmakers and the Capitol itself.

In Washington itself, security measures are being stepped up, with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies preparing for the possibility of more violence.

Capitol security officials are warning lawmakers that thousands of extremist supporters of President Trump are planning to try to storm the Capitol ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration.

Lawmakers were told of four specific armed threats against the Capitol, White House and Supreme Court during a call late Monday night, according to a source familiar with the discussion.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called a meeting late Tuesday morning between Appropriations Chair Rosa DeLauro, Administration Chair Zoe Lofgren, the new House sergeant-at-arms and acting Capitol Police chief in light of continued threats to the Capitol and lawmakers, a source said.

The Capitol now has a much more pronounced law enforcement presence, after National Guard members and local state troopers were called in Wednesday to help the Capitol Police clear the building of the mob.

Beyond the security threats against the Capitol premises, members of Congress are also facing angry Trump supporters while traveling to and from Washington.

Investigators are following leads and working cases in more than 30 states related to last week's attack on the U.S. Capitol and next week's inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden.
