An FBI bulletin obtained by ABC News on Monday raised alarm about a group calling for the ‘storming‘ of state, local, and federal government administrative buildings and courthouses should President Donald Trump be removed from office prior to Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20.
Something tells me the FBI warning will only make the Democrats try even harder to use the 25th amendment to forcibly remove Trump from the Oval Office.
The bulletin comes as TuskerDaily reported earlier this morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced an article of impeachment accusing Trump of incitement to insurrection, five days after the mob of the president’s supporters stormed the Capitol grounds in a futile bid to block Congress from certifying Biden’s election victory.
As the FBI and Capitol Police worry about another possible wave of violence, officials vowed that they wouldn’t be caught flat-footed this time.
More than 6,000 members of the National Guard were deployed to Washington, DC, over with weekend, with dozens of them standing guard over the Capitol during Monday’s proceedings.
Meanwhile, the Pentagon is reportedly considering sending as many as 13,000 guardsmen to secure the area on Inauguration Day.
Prior to last week’s breach, officials had planned to deploy roughly 7,000 guardsmen.
Washington DC’s hardened security plans come after the Department of Defense said it was aware of ‘further possible threats posed by would-be terrorists in the days up to and including Inauguration Day’
Congressman Jason Crow (D – Colorado) said in a statement Sunday after speaking with Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy about security preparations.
The Department of Homeland Security is working with the Defense Department, local DC authorities, and inauguration officials to sharpen the law enforcement response in the coming days, including by erecting non-scalable fencing and security checkpoints around Capitol Hill.
