Washington (CNN) - U.S. Capitol Police have requested DC National Guard assistance ahead of planned right-wing protests scheduled for this Saturday at the Capitol, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said Wednesday.
"We have received a request from Capitol Police for some assistance for this weekend's protests, scheduled protests. I'm not going to detail the specific request," Kirby said.
"We're doing the analysis, we are in receipt of it, we're analyzing it, and if it can be validated and supported, we'll do that and we'll look at the sourcing inside the department as to what's most appropriate."
Kirby would not give details but said "it is not an exorbitant ask," adding that "it's not of a particularly large size or major capability. I think it's more in the form of some manpower support."
US Capitol Police said Monday they are in touch with the military ahead of the protests, as the Capitol Police Board approved the return of security fencing around the Capitol building.

If no action is taken by authorities at that point, it will then be time for a REAL insurrection by those who were cheated.
