  • Army vet accused of plotting armed response to pro-Trump rally at Fla. state Capitol

DeSantis issued the order hours after Tallahassee Mayor John Dailey asked the governor to call in the Guard to help protect the state Capitol.

On January 6, a violent mob of supporters of the incumbent president, who does not recognize his electoral defeat, stormed the Washington Capitol, killing five people.

The governor's order comes as authorities are on high alert after last week's attack on the US Congress in Washington by supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump.

The precautions have come after an internal Federal Bureau of Investigation bulletin warned that "armed protests" in the days leading up to Biden's inauguration are being organized by Trump supporters at state capitals.

The U.S. attorney's office says an anti-Trump Florida man has been charged with trying to organize an armed response to pro-Trump protesters expected at the state Capitol on Sunday.

"Extremists intent on violence from either end of the political and social spectrums must be stopped, and they will be stopped", said Lawrence Keefe, US Attorney for the Northern District of Florida. "We will not stop in our efforts to detect, deter and disrupt anyone else planning to incite or commit violence", he added.

Prosecutors in charge of the case claimed Mr Baker was actively recruiting and had released videos showing him with multiple weapons. Baker is described as anti-Trump, anti-government, anti-white supremacists and anti-police.

By the time Biden is sworn in as the 46th USA president Wednesday, Trump will already be far away, having helicoptered out of the White House a last time earlier that morning, an official said Friday.

He is expected to be out of town well before Biden is sworn in on the steps of the Capitol building at exactly noon.
