The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) informed law enforcement partners they are aware of a "small number of recent online threats of violence" connected to the "Justice for J6" rally outside the U.S. Capitol, Saturday, including "online discussions encouraging violence the day before the rally."

The bulletin produced by DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis and shared with state, local, tribal and territorial partners on Thursday "assess[es] that some individuals involved in or opposed to the 'Justice for J6' rally planned for 18 September at Union Square (which encompasses the U.S. Capitol) in Washington, D.C., may seek to engage in violence but lack indications of a specific or credible plot associated with the event."

Capitol and D.C. Metropolitan police, as well as additional officers from surrounding cities and federal agencies who have Civil Disturbance Unit training, have also been activated.

According to the intelligence bulletin obtained by CBS News, social media users have discussed storming the U.S. Capitol on the night before the rally. Earlier this month, one user "commented on kidnapping an identified member of Congress," the bulletin says.
