In Washington, 2000 National Guardsmen are sworn in as federal marshals.
US federal marshals have police powers and must undergo special training but an exception was made tonight.
2000 National Guardsmen, who arrived in Washington to disperse Trump supporters, were appointed marshals at night without special training on the basis of "ideological conformity." In addition, reinforcements of 5000 more National Guards arrived. By Biden's inauguration, 25000 security officials were concentrated in the city.
Police checkpoints have been set up in the capital of the United States, entrepreneurs are nailing down windows and doors on the first floors, the city center is closed, and a steel fence has been erected around the Capitol.
