FBI Warns Trump Supporters Planning ‘Armed Protests’ In All 50 States Starting This Weekend




Supporters of President Donald Trump are planning armed protests across our nation’s capitals, starting this week and running through Inauguration Day, reports ABC News after obtaining an internal FBI bulletin.

“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.



Some of these protesters have vowed to employ violence if Trump is either impeached or removed via the 25th Amendment.

“They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment a huge uprising will occur,” the FBI bulletin states.

Additionally, the bulletin states that one group of Trump supporters “is calling for ‘storming’ state, local, and federal government courthouses and administrative buildings in the event President Trump is removed prior to Inauguration Day.”

Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts said Monday morning he had heard about the planned protests.

“Certainly we will take the appropriate precautions here in the state capitol with regard to that,” he said.

The FBI bulletins come just days after Trump supporters attacked the United States Capitol building in a failed effort to block Congress from certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
