But a wide-ranging threat assessment issued Thursday by several federal and local agencies makes it clear that US agencies are preparing for the possibility that Biden's inauguration could inspire additional threats to the USA homeland, including foreign influence operations and even drone attacks from extremists.
He said that since January 6, when the incident took place, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has identified over 200 suspects, adding that the institution and its partners have already arrested more than 100 individuals.
"Right now, we're tracking calls for potential armed protests and activity leading up to the inauguration", he said.
The presidential inaugural committee declined to comment on the report.

Authorities are warning of the "substantial" risk that explosives will be among the "tactics" used during protests before and during the January 20 inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, piling on to a previous memo urging law enforcement to be prepared for armed demonstrations in all 50 state capitols in the coming days, according to a recent report.
New York Attorney General Letitia James also issued a warning this week to anyone considering a riot at the state Capitol in the next week, saying that her office is monitoring any potential threat and will take legal action against anyone who turns to violence.
The assessment also warned that - even if unlikely - US -based radicals could be inspired by violent drone attacks reportedly launched overseas.
Wray also said that law enforcement was aware of and monitoring "an extensive amount of concerning online chatter" ahead of President-elect Biden's inauguration next week, but added that authorities were having to sift through "what's aspirational versus what's intentional".
