Tens of thousands of National Guard troops have flooded the nation’s capital to boost security surrounding the inauguration. But increased vetting by the FBI led to the removal of 12 National Guard members who were found to have ties with right-wing militia groups, officials told the Associated Press.

...U.S. Sen. Edward Markey and U.S. Reps. Seth Moulton, Jake Auchincloss, Lori Trahan, and Richard Neal all plan to attend the inauguration. The offices of U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren and U.S. Reps. Katherine Clark and Ayanna Pressley did not respond to requests for comment. Pressley went into quarantine last week after her husband tested positive for COVID-19.
