MINNEAPOLIS (TNS) — The FBI believes it has credible evidence of a threat of violence on Sunday specifically aimed at the Minnesota and Michigan state capitols by right-wing extremists as part of their preparation for armed protests in every state and Washington, D.C., leading up to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next week.
The evidence is spelled out in an alert dated Dec. 29 that was written by the FBI’s Minneapolis division based on what it said was intelligence from two “collaborative” sources with “direct access” to vital information.
The “potential activity alert” was first posted Monday by Yahoo News and verified to the Minneapolis Star Tribune on Tuesday as legitimate by a source who has seen the document.
