FBI: Armed Protests Planned At All 50 State Capitols
According to an FBI bulletin, armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols starting this week and running through at least Inauguration Day.
“The FBI received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, DC on 16 January,” according to the bulletin. “They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment, a huge uprising will occur.”
After the pro-Trump protest at the U.S. Capitol last Wednesday, Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives are trying to get Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment, which would remove Trump from office and allow Pence to serve as president until Biden’s inauguration.
The attempt was blocked by Republican Rep. Alex Mooney of West Virginia. House Democrats then introduced an article of impeachment against Trump for “incitement of insurrection.”
