The FBI arrested a man in Florida who was allegedly planning to recruit people to violently attack pro-Trump protesters who might show up at the Florida State Capitol to continue the effort to overthrow the election.

Daniel Alan Baker referred to himself a "hardcore leftist" in an article cited by the FBI in the criminal charges filed on Friday.

Federal prosecutors accused Baker of making a "call to arms for like-minded individuals to violently confront" any pro-Trump supporters at the Tallahassee Capitol.

On Sunday the FBI alerted state and local officials that there might be more protests leading to violence at state capitals in line with the lethal rioting that transpired at the U.S. Capitol.

Prosecutors allege that Baker wanted others to join him in encircling protesters and confine them with firearms.
