Police are reportedly planning to reinstall the fence that surrounded the U.S. Capitol for months after the January 6 protest in response to a rally on September 18 demanding “justice” for jailed Capitol protesters. 

According to the Associated Press, which cited an anonymous source, a security plan “is being finalized” to put fencing outside the inner perimeter of the Capitol building and the Supreme Court. 

“The fence had been a stark symbol of the fear many in the Capitol felt after the mob pushed its way past overwhelmed police officers, broke through windows and doors and ransacked the Capitol as Congress was voting to certify Joe Biden’s electoral win,” according to the report, which repeatedly called the January 6 protest an “insurrection,” despite contradictory FBI evidence.

Police are reportedly tracking intelligence “indicating far-right extremist groups like the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers are planning to attend the rally.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she “intend[s] to have the integrity of the Capitol be intact,” during her weekly press conference Wednesday, though she did not name specifics. 

Another dangerous story is being spun by the mainstream media ahead of the 20th anniversary of 9/11

In August, the FBI found “scant” evidence that the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol was part of a plot to mount an insurrection against the U.S. government, or instigated by then-President Donald Trump, according to sources in a Reuters report.
