Protesters Trade Barbs at 'Justice for J6' Rally Near US Capitol

Demonstrators organized close to the US Capitol on Saturday, September 8, during a planned rally at Union Square in support of those charged in connection with the Capitol riot of January 6.

Video from Brendan Gutenschwager shows a brief but heated verbal confrontation between a rally attendee and a counter-protester. Police officers quickly stepped to separate the two men, escorting the man with the megaphone away from the area. Credit: Brendan Gutenschwager via Storyful
