FBI Vetting Guard Troops in DC Amid Fear of Inside Attack

That concern is prompting the FBI to vet all 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event.
The massive undertaking reflects the extraordinary security concerns that have gripped Washington following the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by a few pro-Trump rioters.
