On Inauguration Day, Joe Biden will become the 46th President of the United States. According to the FBI, there will most likely be protests in Washington, D.C on this day because of the anger from people about possible voter fraud.

The protests will supposedly take place in all 50 state capitols when Joe Biden is inaugurated. The FBI received this information on Jan. 8 that a group was planning these protests to happen as they plan on storming state and federal buildings.

Over the weekend and in the days before Biden takes the Oath of Office, demonstrators, though small in number, have shown up in Richmond, Va.; Lansing, Mich.; Denver, Colo.; St. Paul, Minn. and others. For an updated list, click here.

There will be lots of security in place across the whole country in preparation for all this. 25,000 National Guard Troops (twice as many as is normal for an inauguration) will be on hand Wednesday, forming a permiter around the US Capitol where Joe Biden will be sworn in.

The FBI is working very hard to find out who is planning these protests and threats of violence. These could possibly be the same rioters outside the US capitol building.

Everyone must work together to ensure a peaceful transfer of power.
