Security Tightens Around The Capitol Ahead Of Joe Biden Inauguration Amid Increased Threat.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., told MSNBC on Tuesday: "There isn't much that I can share, but what I think is important for the public to know is that there is an increased threat. What we experienced Wednesday could potentially be repeated, and there are proper steps being taken.

"There is more coordination with national security and federal law enforcement to make sure that the Capitol is not breached, that members of Congress and their staff and everyone who is going to be at the Capitol will be safe the next, you know, 10 or so days until the inauguration,"

Rep. Conor Lamb, D-Pa., provided some details to CNN, saying Tuesday morning: "They're talking about 4,000 armed patriots to surround the Capitol and prevent any Democrat from going in. They have published rules of engagement, meaning when you shoot and when you don't.

"So this is an organized group that has a plan," he said. "They are committed to doing what they're doing because I think, in their minds, you know, they are patriots and they're talking about 1776, and so this is now a contest of wills. We are not negotiating with or reasoning with these people. They have to be prosecuted. They have to be stopped. And, unfortunately, that includes the president. Which is why he needs to be impeached and removed from office."

Supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol last week in protest of the election results, leading to five deaths, as well as widespread damage throughout the building. Since then, Trump supporters with extremist views have vowed to return to Washington for the inauguration.

In a statement issued after they received another security briefing Tuesday, several top House Democrats said more needs to be done
