Breaking Now: Democrats in Congress are so scared of supporters of former President Donald Trump they are having the fence that was just taken down re-installed around the Capitol in advance of an upcoming pro-Trump rally.
“The fence surrounding the U.S. Capitol is set to return ahead of the pro-Trump rally on Sept. 18, the head of the Capitol Police confirmed Monday,” according to The Hill. [emphasis aded}
“‘The fence will go up a day or two before, and if everything goes well it will come down very soon after,’ Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger told reporters in the Capitol.
“The remarks came just moments after Manger, along with the sergeants-at-arms in both chambers, had briefed the top congressional leaders on the intelligence gathered by law enforcement ahead of Saturday’s “Justice for J6” rally at the Capitol, which will protest the treatment of the hundreds of people arrested in connection with the Jan. 6 riot. [emphasis added]
“Leaving the intelligence briefing, Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) declined to comment on the threat level posed on Saturday. But he said he’s confident there won’t be another security debacle like that of Jan. 6…
“The original Capitol security fence was erected in the days following the deadly rampage at the Capitol on Jan. 6, and quickly became a symbol of both the failure of law enforcement to prepare for violence that day and the ongoing effort by former President Trump to overturn his election defeat.” [emphasis added]
