Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf resigned on Monday ahead of a ‘dangerous’ inauguration following a failed coup attempt.

Mr. Wolf send a letter to DHS employees informing them of his decision, saying “I am saddened to take this step, as it was my intention to serve the Department until the end of this administration.”

“Unfortunately this action is warranted by recent events, including then ongoing and meritless court rulings regarding the validity of my authority as Acting Secretary,” he added.

Wolf said Pete Gaynor, FEMA Administrator, will become the Acting Secretary of the DHS.

“Be proud of what we have accomplished,” he told DHS employees. “The Homeland is safer and more secure because if your efforts.”

He said he was confident the transition process will run smoothly.

Wolf’s resignation comes on the same day the FBI warned that armed protests were being planned at all 50 state capitols and the U.S. Capitol starting this week and running through at least Inauguration Day.

In the internal bulletin obtained by ABC News, the FBI said it has also received information in recent days on a group calling for “storming” state, local and federal government courthouses and administrative buildings if President Donald Trump is removed from office prior to Inauguration Day.

A mob supporting President Donald Trump forced its way into the U.S. Capitol wreaking havoc and delaying the constitutional process to affirm Joe Biden’s victory in the November election. Rioters attack a Capitol Police Officer near an entrance to the Senate side of the Capitol.

The internal bulletin added that the group is also planning to “storm” government offices in every state the day President Joseph R. Biden Jr. will be inaugurated.

“The FBI received information about identified armed group intending to travel Washington, D.C. on 16 January,” the bulletin stated. “They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment, a huge uprising will occur.”

ABC News quoted law enforcement sources as saying that federal law enforcement officials have advised police agencies to increase their security posture at statehouses around the country following the riot at the U.S. Capitol.
