  • Another protest is being planned in honor of Ashli Babbitt, the USAF veteran who was shot at point blank range by a police officer as she tried to clamber into the Speaker's Lobby during the Trump mob's siege 
  • FBI alerted staff to possible armed protests at capitols in all 50 states in the days leading to Inauguration Day 
  • Agency says it discovered intel a group was calling for the 'storming' of state, local and federal government buildings, as well as court houses if Trump is removed from office before Joe Biden enters the White House
