Beginning this week and going up to the Inauguration Day at the least, armed demonstrations are presently being laid out at all 50 state capitols, including the U.S. Capitol, based on an internal FBI memo acquired by outlet ABC News.
The FBI has also got documents in the last few days about a group urging breaching the local, federal, and state government courts and administrative structures if ever President Donald Trump is ousted from the White House before Inauguration Day.
The said group is also reportedly targeting government agencies of each state on the Inauguration day of President-elect Joe Biden, irrespective of whether the said areas confirmed electoral votes for Trump or Biden.

Following the storming of pro-Trump supporters at the U.S. Capitol, Democratic legislators in the House of Representatives responded on Monday with an attempt to make the Cabinet and Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment, which will proclaim that Trump is unable to do his presidential duties and would place Pence as stand-in president until Biden is installed Jan. 20.
The attempt was eventually stopped by West Virginia Republican Rep. Alex Mooney, and Democrats in the House then presented an article of impeachment against the president for the “incitement of insurrection” charge.
The resolution, which has co-sponsors of over 200 Democratic lawmakers states that Trump has shown that he will continue to be a danger to the security of the country, Constitution, and democracy if permitted to stay in office. The file also wrote that the president has presented himself as someone unsuited with the rule of law and sovereignty.
