McCaul Inspects Security in Preparation for the 58th Presidential Inauguration

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX), alongside Ranking Member Bennie Thompson (D-MS), met with the Secret Service, FBI, and other law enforcement officials to oversee and inspect security in place for the inauguration of President-Elect Donald J. Trump. A peaceful transition of power is a pillar of American democracy owed to the dedicated men and women working tirelessly to ensure the safety and security of all.

Chairman McCaul: “I commend the efforts of the United States Secret Service, Department of Homeland Security, Capitol Hill Police, and local law enforcement who are working tirelessly to ensure a safe and successful Inauguration. My Committee and I are paying detailed attention to all of the necessary preparations for this historic event. Despite the intense terror threat our nation faces, I am confident that we will be able to conduct a seamless and peaceful transition of power in large part because of the hard work of the Department’s employees, and the Secret Service, and those on the front lines keeping our nation safe.”
