The National Park Service on Friday said it will shut down "core areas" of the National Mall to the public when President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in next Wednesday. The closures of the Mall, where thousands of Americans traditionally gather to watch presidential inaugurations, started Friday at 11 a.m. and will extend through at least next Thursday, the National Park Service said in a press release. National Guard members have been deployed to the Capitol and other parts of the city as officials fear more violence and unrest could be in store ahead of Biden's inauguration. Jeff Reinbold, National Mall and Memorial Parks superintendent, said in the press release that government agencies "have developed a plan to ensure for the safety of our Nation's capital, city residents and monuments and memorials on the National Mall." The National Park Service said it will allow a limited number of demonstrations among pre-screened participants holding permits in closed areas near the the U.S. Navy Memorial and John Marshall Park.

Seven days before the president leaves office, the House plans to charge him with high crimes and misdemeanors for inciting an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week. President Donald Trump , a man hyperaware of his achievements and place in history, will add a first to his record on Wednesday. The House will send the article across the Capitol immediately, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told NBC News on Wednesday. The Capitol insurrection made more GOP lawmakers willing to boot their party's president from office. At least five House Republicans will vote to impeach Trump on Wednesday.
