FBI warns of violence during Joe Biden’s inauguration
The US Federal Police are concerned about calls for armed protests. Vice President Mike Pence promises an orderly handover.
The FBI is concerned about calls for armed protests ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. Employees followed a large number of worrying online conversations, said FBI Director Christopher Wray. Protests and rallies in Washington and state capitals could turn into violence.
Also, gunmen could get near government buildings or elected people, Wray said. The riots by supporters of the outgoing President Donald Trump on and in the Capitol last week could be a role model for them. The FBI has a significant amount of information that it passes on to other agencies. However, it is often a challenge to distinguish between the author’s claim and intent.
