Congressional security officials are expected to authorize the installation of a seven-foot fence and use of deadly force for a far-right rally next weekend on Capitol Hill's plaza demanding the release of rioters who descended on the building on January 6, according to The Guardian.

Look Ahead America said on its website that the "Justice for J6" rally in Washington DC is scheduled to take place on September 18 in Union Square, along with additional rallies at capitals, parks, and courthouses in 13 other states.

The organization's Executive Director Matt Braynard, former director of data and strategy for the Trump campaign, said in a video that the goal of the rallies is to raise awareness about the civil rights violations endured by "political prisoners" arrested in relation to the January 6 riot.

He also asked attendees to refrain from wearing or bringing political paraphernalia, banners, or flags referencing a political candidate, organization, or the 2020 election.

Braynard predicted 700 people will be in attendance when he filed for the event's permit, according to The Guardian. Sources familiar with intelligence gathered by federal officials said far-right extremist groups like the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers are planning to attend the rally.

Security officials weighed whether to request the National Guard at the Washington DC rally but decided against its deployment following a threat assessment, The Guardian reported.

Final recommendations will be unveiled Monday in a briefing with congressional leaders.
