US officials reported that two U.S. Army National Guard members have removed from the security mission to secure Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration for their ties to Far-Right groups.

An unnamed US Army officer and a senior US intelligence confirmed the removal.

Details on the group the Guard members belonged to or what unit they served in were not disclosed.

The National Guard Bureau and Secret Service both refused to comment on the issue “due to operational security” procedures.

US Authorities have not announced whether a plot against president-elect Joe Biden was found but security is at an all-time high in Washington D.C. after the recent insurrection. 

The FBI said that several QAnon supporters suggested posing as National Guard to access the Capitol on inauguration day and are currently on the lookout.
