FBI has warned against the potential plans of nationwide armed protests in the country ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.
In light of this incident, the US security agencies have warned of possible armed protests at all 50 state capitals in the country that are being promoted and organized by far-right groups. The (FBI) Federal Bureau of Investigation has circulated an internal bulletin to all the local law enforcement agencies warning about the armed protest that has been planned in the days leading up to Joe Biden's inauguration. The bulletin read that “The FBI received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, DC on Jan. 16". It continued, "They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment, a huge uprising will occur."
Several posts on social media sites have also promoted a “Million Militia March” on the inauguration day. The calls are allegedly organized by a promoter of the pro-Trump QAnon conspiracy theory that draws a massive crowd. The protests are supported by anti-government, pro-gun Boogaloo movement followers, which advocates for a second civil war.
