ABC News has received an exclusive detailed look at the array of potential threats federal authorities are tracking in the days leading up to the presidential inauguration.

Authorities are tracking up to 10 protests or demonstrations that are being promoted to occur in Washington, D.C. between now and Inauguration Day for what some groups are calling the “Week of Siege,” according to a law enforcement source.

Federal law enforcement assessments warn of potentially violent elements who may feel emboldened by the successful breach of the Capitol on Jan. 6. There is also concern among federal law enforcement agencies that the shooting death of Ashli Babbitt during the attempted insurrection, the ongoing impeachment of President Donald Trump, and the pending peaceful transfer of power to President-elect Joe Biden could raise the stakes for extremists.

Authorities are paying particular attention to an event organized by a collection of right-wing extremist groups, including the Proud Boys. Their ambitions include an idea to hold an event in the coming days to “capture and detain” Democratic politicians and set up a new government led by Republican leaders of their choosing, according to internet postings reviewed by law enforcement.
