Supporters of President Donald Trump are expected to gather at the Texas Capitol today in concurrence with protests across the country as Congress meets to certify the 2020 presidential election results.
The protest, set to begin at noon, has been set in place for the past month as the president warned via Twitter that there would be a "big" and "wild" protest in D.C. on Jan 6.

Organizers of the rally have said they will be at the Capitol with both signs and megaphones to voice their support. The Proud Boys have also said they will be at certain events across the country in an incognito capacity after the arrest of their leader Enrique Tarrio on Monday.
"We are going to smell like you, move like you, and look like you," Joe Biggs, another Proud Boys organizer said in a video last week. "The only thing we'll do that's us is think like us."
Trump's consistent assertion that widespread voter fraud affected the election results has been shot down in at least 50 different cases, including by the Republican-majority Supreme Court.
