FBI warns of armed protests at all 50 state capitols starting Jan. 16

House Democrats have introduced articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, accusing him of inciting an insurrection last week when a mob of his supporters attacked the Capitol. CNBC's Eamon Javers reports. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO: cnb.cx/2NGeIvi
The FBI has sent a memo to law enforcement agencies across the country warning of possible armed protests at all 50 state capitol buildings starting Jan. 16, and also says an armed group has threatened to travel to Washington, D.C. the same day and stage an uprising if Congress removes President Donald Trump from office, according to a senior law enforcement official.
The memo includes information provided by the ATF, DEA, Defense Department, Park Police, and the U.S. Marshals, among other agencies, according to the official. Some of the information came from social media, some from open source, and some from other sources of information.
The memo was first reported by ABC News.
The senior law enforcement official says the FBI’s National Crisis Coordination Center distributed the update to law enforcement agencies as a summary of threat information they’ve received following last Wednesday’s deadly mob attack on the Capitol.
While the memo discusses possible threats discussed by online actors for Jan. 16 through the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on Jan. 20, it doesn’t mean that law enforcement agencies expect violent mass protests or confrontations in every state.
For instance, a spokesperson for the FBI in Boston says, “At this point in time, the FBI Boston Division is not in possession of any intelligence indicating any planned, armed protests at the four state capitals in our area of responsibility. (ME, MA, NH, and RI) from January 17-20, 2021.”
The spokesperson added, “As always, we are in constant communication with our law enforcement partners and will share any actionable intelligence.”
The memo says that the armed group that has discussed traveling to Washington on Jan. 16 said there would be a huge uprising if Congress tries to remove Trump via the 25th Amendment. Law enforcement officials point out that Congress can’t remove a president via the 25th Amendment.

    I would say that all government officials on both side should be very very scared. They have screwed the American people over for decades while they eat nice steaks and post them online and the American people are starving, they live in mansions while people are getting evicted and going into foreclosures of their homes. And being forced to live on the streets with their kids. America officially died when they screwed the American people of a fair election. There is no America anymore there is no freedom of speech anymore there is no freedom anymore.. all these politicians did was invoke a future civil war. And colored America you helped with it all. So welcome back to slavery.

Jan 6th wasn’t enough blood spilled to scare the people. So BLM/ANTIFA, and the Democrats through their net work at Slingshotcollective.org have planned a Bolshevik or Khmer Rogue style example to be made of Patriots! Just like in history they want the Patriots to engage the military at rallies on the 16th - 19th, and then slaughtered them in public to get their scare, and wipe out the 1st and 2nd Amendment forever. Please do as Trump asks; Stay home with your families in peace please! Stay home in peace. All will be okay. Trump’s team have a huge plan. So let them, the military handle it please. Stay home in peace. God bless you all and God bless America. 💪💪🇺🇸🇺🇸

    Sounds like another gaslighting courtesy of antifa and the deep state. They'll probably stage some incident to make it appear like the gun owners are about to "storm the capitol buildings" around the country! And then of course the first act of congress in the new Biden administration will be to issue yet another gun ban, right on schedule; like clockwork. All of the gun owners I spoke with in my state know nothing official about any "armed protest", only some mysterious flyer that was sent around with no authorship. I would advise all law abiding gun owners to stay away from this. It's looking like another antifa false flag frame up.

    If you know anyone who plans to march on their capitol, please tell them they are doing it against a fair and accurate election in a functioning democracy. State legislators, even Republicans, certified their results (even multiple times with recounts) against Trump, and judges threw out almost all cases brought to them about election fraud or tampering based on having no evidence, when people in both parties were present at the counting facilities. Yet TV personalities and Congress Republicans have parroted Trump's claims of election fraud, which ultimately lead to the insurrection at the nation's Capitol where 5 people died. Similar demonstrations are planned at state capitols leading up to inauguration day. If more violent encounters occur, more people are going to needlessly die. DO SOMETHING.
