POLITICO Dispatch

Can Capitol security handle this week?

Episode Notes

Impeachment. Inauguration. The transfer of power. The next seven days will be critical, and intelligence officials are already warning of possible "armed protests" across the country. Garrett Graff explains how the security failures during last week's insurrection raise questions about how prepared the country is for more threats. Plus, U.S. will require Covid testing for arriving international flights. And Trump tries to defend himself ahead of impeachment.
