FBI warns of armed protests in 50 state capitals, after impeachment charge

Trump’s words are accused of causing supporters to engage in “violent, deadly, destructive, and seditious acts” amid impeachment charges

Democrats are charging the US President with “incitement of insurrection” as part of the impeachment proceedings following the attacks on the US Capitol building in Washington DC, with the FBI warning that more armed protests have been planned nationwide ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.

Democrats have filed one article of impeachment which states that the US President made statements at a rally of his ‘MAGA’ supporters that “encouraged and foreseeably resulted in” last week’s violence.

Republicans have so far blocked an attempt to immediately consider a resolution asking US Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment which would remove Mr Trump from office by declaring that he is unfit to act as President.

This comes after US Democrats are charging United States President Donald Trump with “incitement of insurrection” as part of their attempt to impeach him, following the invasion of the US Capitol by pro-Trump supporters that left five people dead, including one police officer.

Proceedings within the House of Representatives were adjourned for 24 hours, when a vote on that resolution is expected to be made.

Mike Pence is believed to be against forcing his party’s leader from power, so a vote on the second impeachment could happen on Wednesday, and needs to gain a simple majority of the votes to pass.

It says that he repeated the false claims that he had won the Presidential election by a “landslide” and “wilfully made statements that, in context, encouraged – and foreseeably resulted in – lawless action at the Capitol, such as: ‘if you don’t fight like hell you’re not going to have a country anymore’.”

It states that Donald Trump’s words incited his followers to storm the Capitol building, where they “injured and killed law enforcement personnel, menaced Members of Congress, the Vice President, and Congressional personnel, and engaged in other violent, deadly, destructive, and seditious acts”.

This comes after Arnold Schwarzenegger has compared the Donald Trump-supporters who broke into the US Capitol to Nazis in an online video message detailing his experience of growing up during the aftermath of World War 2.

The second impeachment article for Donald Trump also cites “prior efforts to subvert and obstruct” the certification of the true election result.

The article specifically refers to a call to Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s secretary of state, urging him to “find” enough votes (11,700) for the current sitting president to win the state.

The President-elect himself, Joe Biden, has suggested he has no concerns over his own safety, telling news reporters on Monday: “I’m not afraid of taking the oath outside.”

The National Guard will be having up to 15,000 personnel in the US Capital city, with 10,000 troops in place by this Saturday.
