Officials did not learn of President Trump’s plan to walk through the park until hours after planning to clear it.
- But the investigation released by Interior Department Inspector General Mark Lee Greenblatt, says U.S. Park Police and the U.S. Secret Service concluded it was necessary to remove protestors from the park on June 1 in order to install anti-scale fencing.
- The decision was reached after at least 49 U.S. Park Police (USPP) were injured while policing the protests that took place from May 30 – 31.
