(ANSA) - WASHINGTON, 18 SEPTEMBER - High tension in Washington for the right-wing rally on Capitol Hill in support of the attackers of the Congress on January 6, even if the night passed quietly and so far no incidents have been reported. The demonstration is scheduled for 12 local time (6 pm in Italy) in front of the Capitol, protected by barriers and fences two and a half meters high, as after the attack nine months ago.
The Capitol Hill police have obtained reinforcements from the capital and from the National Guard, which has deployed a hundred men but not armed.
The rally is organized by Matt Braynard, a former employee of Trump's electoral staff, and his "Look AheadAmerica", an organization "dedicated to defending American patriots who have been forgotten by the government."
In recent days, alarms from the FBI have followed one another, also for online chats that spoke of a new assault on the Congress, of kidnapping a parliamentarian and of taking liberal miraches and Jewish centers. But intelligence did not identify any "specific or credible plans associated with the event". (HANDLE).
