A federal law enforcement source told Fox News that an internal bureau memo is warning that the protests could be before, on, and after Inauguration Day.
An internal Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) memo is warning of plans for armed protests in all 50 state capital cities ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s Inauguration, Fox News has learned.
The memo comes as Fox News has learned the FBI has received more than “40,000 digital media tips, including video and photos, from the public” regarding participants in last week’s Capitol riot.
Sources told Fox News on Sunday that the FBI visited extremists prior to the Jan. 6 pro-Trump rally and Capitol riot, urging them not to travel to Washington D.C.
It is unclear, at this point, how many extremists were contacted and how far in advance of Jan. 6.
Pro-Trump protesters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, sending Congress into recess and the Capitol building into lockdown as members attempted to certify the results of the presidential election in favor of President-elect Joe Biden
