The FBI warned on Monday 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.

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.
