It’s understood the FBI is warning of increased riot activity right across the United States, with the National Guard deployed to every capital city.
Streets and bridges are being barricaded off across Washington, to try and avoid any sort of repeat of what happened at Capitol Hill on January 7.
Overnight, it’s understood a man from Virginia attempted to gain access to the capital with fake credentials.
