The Department of Homeland Security issued a national terrorism bulletin yesterday warning of a lingering potential for violence following the election and inauguration.

The agency didn't mention anything specific but said there's a "heightened threat environment" across the country. 

The bulletin is important in that it's a weeks-long, broad warning and because it labels violence sparked by anti-government beliefs as terrorism.
