The U.S. Congressional Police Committee notified members of Congress and staff on Wednesday that the remaining fence around the Capitol will be demolished as early as Friday.
The big picture: After the deadly rebellion on January 6, the fence was in place when a group of Trump supporters stormed into the building. According to the Associated Press, Congressional police removed the outer fence in March, but there are still signs of the inner fence that the area is closed to the public.
What they mean is: "Based on the USCP's assessment of the current threat environment; the recent enhancement of the USCP's responsiveness; and enhanced coordination with local, state, and federal law enforcement partners, the Congressional Police Committee supports the USCP's proposal to remove the temporary fence in the Capitol Near the square," armed sergeant Karen H. Gibson of the U.S. Senate said in an email obtained by Axios.
