The police of Capitol Hill is preparing for the possibility that the protesters of Saturday’s rally in support of the attackers of January 6 are armed and violent. CNN reports this, citing its own sources.
Local police and the FBI have raised the level of security in the capital, Washington, ahead of the demonstration of Trump supporters scheduled for Saturday. The rally, organized in defense of the arrested insurgents, who stormed Congress on January 6, could bring thousands of people to the city. The police forces want to avoid a re-issue of the siege eight months ago. Security cameras have been installed throughout the area and around the Capitol buildings the two-meter-high protective barrier that was installed after the January siege will be restored.
“We will guarantee – said the Capitol police chief, Tom eat – the right to demonstrate peacefully. But if someone wants to come to cause trouble, we recommend that they stay home. We will not tolerate violence. “
One of Donald Trump’s loyalists, the Republican elected in Georgia, Marjorie Taylor Greene, which had sided in favor of the insurgents, at the moment it seems that it will not participate in the demonstration.
