Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger is set to brief congressional leaders about security plans for an upcoming rally in support of people jailed in connection with the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol invasion, a person familiar with the matter told CNBC on Wednesday.

The Sept. 18 event at the U.S. Capitol, dubbed the "Justice for J6" rally, comes more than eight months after hundreds of former President Donald Trump's supporters stormed that building, forcing Congress into hiding and temporarily derailing efforts to confirm President Joe Biden's victory.
