The FBI is expecting armed protests at state capitols across the country, according to tweets from ABC News correspondent Aaron Katersky.

On Monday, Katersky tweeted that ABC had received a bulletin from the FBI stating that the protests are being planned and are expected to begin January 16 and continue through at least January 20 - Inauguration Day.

He also tweeted "The FBI has 'received information about an identified armed group intending to travel to Washington, DC on 16 January. They have warned that if Congress attempts to remove POTUS via the 25th Amendment a huge uprising will occur,' according to a bulletin obtained by @ABC"

The news comes less than a week after violence erupted in the nation's capital on Wednesday as congress was set to count the Electoral College votes, confirming President-elect Joe Biden's victory over President Donald Trump.

There have been calls to impeach the President as well as remove him from office via the 25th Amendment.
