FBI said to warn that armed protests are planned in all 50 states ahead of January 20

The FBI is warning that “armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitals from January 16 through at least January 20, and at the US Capitol from January 17 through January 20,” ABC News reports, citing an agency bulletin.

The agency has “received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, DC on January 16. They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove [the president] via the 25th Amendment, a huge uprising will occur.”

Meanwhile, the bulletin also warns that a group is urging supporters of the president to storm government houses in states and on the federal level if Trump is removed from office ahead of time.
