So says, in effect, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). They want you to be very afraid of your fellow Americans, any number of whom DHS suspects may be domestic terrorists. Even though DHS admits that "DHS does not have any information to indicate a specific, credible plot."

WASHINGTON – The Acting Secretary of Homeland Security has issued a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin today after consultation with the intelligence community and law enforcement partners. There is currently a heightened threat environment across the United States that is likely to persist over the coming weeks. DHS does not have any information to indicate a specific, credible plot; however, violent riots have continued in recent days and we remain concerned that individuals frustrated with the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances and ideological causes fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize a broad range of ideologically-motivated actors to incite or commit violence.
You can read the NTAS Bulletin here.
Now, I ask you: Are you aware of "violent riots [that] have continued in recent days"? I am. I know that violent riots have continued to occur in Portland and Seattle and a few other places. To my knowledge, every single one of these were Leftist--basically, Antifa--incited.
Next question: Does Antifa fit the profile above? Individuals frustrated with the ... presidential transition? I've certainly never heard that that was part of Antifa ideology. Why then are we being warned about people who perceive a grievance related to the "presidential transition"?
As for DHS' consultation with "the intelligence community and law enforcement partners" I'm guessing that if you substitute "FBI" for that phrase it'll be close enough for government work.
In the meantime stay alert. Be very afraid. And don't hold your breath waiting for "any information to indicate a specific, credible plot."
