The events at the US Capitol on January 6 alarmed officials.
FBI Director Christopher Wray is tracking more possible violence.
Law enforcement believes there’s a “substantial” danger of bombs at protests.
Trump supporters are asking Conservatives to remain at home.
(NewsReady.com) – The events of January 6 at the Capitol Building have left US officials on edge. President Donald Trump has repeatedly called for the American people to remain calm and stay peaceful in the hopes he can stop any unrest before it happens.
The FBI and other law enforcement are monitoring online chatter, and now they’re issuing a warning.
FBI Briefs Vice President
On January 14, FBI Director Christopher Wray publicly briefed Vice President Mike Pence for the first time since the Capitol Hill incident. The director said his agency is tracking an “extensive amount of concerning online chatter” about the possibility of armed protests in state capitals around the country and in Washington, DC.
Law enforcement believes the events will take place during the weekend of January 16 and 17, as well as the week leading up to the inauguration.
Trump Supporters Tell Conservatives to Stay Home
President Donald Trump’s supporters across the internet are calling on Conservatives to stay home in the coming days. They believe that the chatter about armed protests is being started by activists on the other side of the aisle in an effort to make them look bad. Or worse, it’s an excuse to pass stricter gun control laws down the road.
Messages like the one below are being spread to alert patriots of the possibility that the Left is setting them up.
Patriots: I know we all love Trump! However listen to me! Do not attend the protest on Inauguration Day! It’s a trap for patriots! Again do not go to Washington DC on Inauguration Day.. stay home!

Heed the Warnings
There’s no doubt many Americans will want to make their voices heard as Joe Biden is set to be sworn in. It’s worth considering what’s more important: protesting or your safety? It might be best to stay home and keep yourself and your family safe just in case a rogue actor acts violently, or the warnings are right and this is a setup.
While you’re at home, make a plan to get civically involved when this is all over.
