FBI internal bulletin: Armed protests planned at all 50 state capitals, U.S. Capitol

Armed protests are reportedly being planned at all 50 state capitals and the U.S. Capitol starting this week, according to an internal FBI bulletin.

The internal bulletin, states that starting this week and running through at least Inauguration Day, armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitals and the US Capitol.

“As of 10 January, armed protests are being planned at all 50 state capitols from 16 January through at least 20 January, and at the US Capitol from 17 January through 20 January,” the bulletin said.

The FBI has also received information in recent days on an identified group calling for “storming” state, local, and federal government courthouses and administrative buildings in the event POTUS is removed as President prior to Inauguration Day.

According to the bulletin, the group is also planning to “storm” government offices in every state on Inauguration Day January 20, regardless of whether the state-certified electoral votes for Biden or Trump.

The news comes as the FBI continues searching for all the suspects involved in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

The riot happened just 14 days before President-elect Biden’s inaugural ceremony on the West Steps of the Capitol.

Four people, Ashli Babbit, Benjamin Philips, Kevin Greeson, and Rosanne Boyland, and Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick were killed in the incident.

The FBI is continuing to look for individuals who may have incited or promoted violence of any kind during the riots. Anyone with digital material or tips can call 1-800-CALL-FBI (800-225-5324) or submit images or videos at fbi.gov/USCapitol.
