(ReliableNews.org) – Americans are increasingly concerned about their safety and welfare in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Last week’s events at the nation’s capital added to that concern. The country remains bitterly divided after the bitterly disputed presidential election, and with the inauguration ceremony days away, many Americans remain on high alert.
A recently revealed internal FBI memo warned agents of the potential for armed protests at the state capitals of all 50 states and in the nation’s capital in Washington, DC. The protests are expected to begin as early as January 16 and could extend through the January 20 presidential inauguration.
"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," according to an FBI bulletin obtained by @ABC
