The fence is back.
The U.S Capitol Police have reinstalled the fence around the Capitol building, and have added security cameras along the barrier, according to The Washington Times.
The agency also has asked for security support from the National Guard and received authorization to deputize law enforcement officers from other agencies, if needed.
The Times notes all the precaution is in preparation for the “Justice for J6” rally, scheduled for Saturday.
A group led by Matt Braynard, the data director for Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, is gathering to protest on behalf of the hundreds of suspects the federal government rounded up after the riot at the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.
The USCP told the Times it erected the fence because of “online chatter” about the rally. No more details were provided. But, the Times noted, “Officers are monitoring hotel bookings, flights, car rental reservations and buses chartered to bring groups to the nation’s capital.”
Braynard said the event will focus attention on the alleged mistreatment of the Trump supporters in custody and awaiting disposition of their cases for involvement in the unrest earlier this year.
Some GOP lawmakers, including U.S. Reps. Matt Gaetz of Florida and Majorie Taylor Greene of Georgia, have also raised such concerns.
Trump is not expected to attend Saturday’s rally.
Braynard told the Times the rally will be “peaceful, and that attendees are expected to be “respectful and kind to all law enforcement officers.”
USCP Chief Tom Manger said the installation of the fence is temporary,
“We are here to protect everyone’s First Amendment right to peacefully protest. I urge anyone who is thinking about causing trouble to stay home. We will enforce the law and not tolerate violence,” he said.
The fence stood for more than six months until it was taken down in July. The Capitol Police are under the authority of Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Business Insider reported on Tuesday that the feds have charged 642 people in connection with the riot. Fifty-eight of them have pled guilty,
While liberals have routinely claimed it was an “insurrection” and an act of “sedition,” most of the defendants have been charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct.
