    “Secret Service Has No Plan if Trump Refuses to Go” https://www.thedailybeast.com/secret-service-has-no-plan-if-trump-refuses-to-go-sources-say
    However: “President Trump’s nuclear authentication card won’t work after the swearing-in. So far as the U.S. military is concerned, it doesn’t matter where the president is; billions of dollars have been spent to ensure the commander-in-chief can execute a war plan from anywhere on Earth, even if he can’t immediately occupy the White House. There will be no ambiguity, these officials said, even if Trump were to try something extraordinary. The Pentagon’s command and control centers would not accept his orders.”
    Meanwhile: “Trump White House staffers receive departure instructions : The internal communication contradicts the ongoing public effort by the president to reverse the outcome of the 2020 election.” https://www.politico.com/news/2020/12/23/trump-administration-departure-instructions-450224 [last night, Trump mused in a tweet that perhaps the next administration “will be me.”]

  2. Directive 20 says:

    “Pentagon and Washington-area military leaders are on red alert, wary of what President Donald Trump might do in his remaining days in office. Though far-fetched, ranking officers have discussed what they would do if the president declared martial law. And military commands responsible for Washington DC are engaged in secret contingency planning in case the armed forces are called upon to maintain or restore civil order during the inauguration and transition period. According to one officer who spoke to Newsweek on condition of anonymity, the planning is being kept out of sight of the White House and Trump loyalists in the Pentagon for fear that it would be shut down.” https://www.newsweek.com/exclusive-donald-trumps-martial-law-talk-has-military-red-alert-1557056
