  • State Of Emergency Declared In Charlottesville For 'Unite the Right' Anniversary

Republican Rep. Tom Garrett said Saturday that he was told during a briefing with the Federal Bureau of Investigation director thatRussian meddling played in a role in "fomenting the flames of what happened in Charlottesville", Virginia, one year ago, when a white nationalist rally turned violent and resulted in the death of a counterprotester.

He was responsible for putting together the Charlottesville rally that led to the death of anti-racism activist Heather Heyer about a year ago.

"I condemn all types of racism and acts of violence", Trump wrote.

President Trump urges peace for all Americans one year after the deadly incidents in Charlottesville.

Police blocked off streets and mobilized hundreds of officers for the anniversary of white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Bro, who was not in Charlottesville a year ago when her daughter was killed, said she understands why some people are in "high anxiety", particularly people who may have seen the violence and are "still living the trauma of that". Some activists have criticized the plans for a heavy-handed police presence this year, while local business owners have also questioned whether it's necessary to partially shut down the city for the weekend.

Shields and Frankel began dating in 2016, just after Frankel's divorce from second husband Jason Hoppy was finalized. Sonja added that the event especially made her sad because the tragedies seem "to be never-ending for [Bethenny]".

Concrete barriers and metal fences were put up and police were searching bags at checkpoints.

Trump came under heavy criticism, including from Republicans, for initially refusing previous year to explicitly condemn white supremacists.

The goal is to keep rally goers and counter protesters separate in order to avoid violent confrontations.

Trump's tweet on Saturday faced criticism on social media as some jumped on the his wording of "all types of racism", after his claim previous year that "both sides" were responsible for the violence.

The violence led to the death of 32-year-old counter protester Heather Heyer who was struck by a vehicle.

On the day's itinerary were several remembrance events, including a "morning of reflection and renewal", a poetry session, and an appearance by University of Virginia President James Ryan, who was on deck to speak. We hope the anniversary of those events passes peacefully, ' he said. "This is not making anyone that I know feel safe".

"They want to be open in solidarity with the community", Fenton said.

Jason Kessler has vowed to press ahead with plans for an August 12 rally in Washington, D.C., after Charlottesville denied him a permit.

Now, ahead of the anniversary of the horrific rally, the governor of Virginia has declared states of emergency for the Commonwealth of Virginia and Charlottesville.

Events marking the anniversary were also expected Sunday in both Charlottesville and Washington, D.C., where Jason Kessler, the primary organizer of last summer's rally, has obtained a permit for a "white civil rights" rally. The state's declaration allocates $2 million in state funds and authorizes the Virginia National Guard to assist in security efforts.

But her stint in the White House lasted barely a year as she was literally turfed out by the President's Chief of Staff John Kelly, reportedly because misused her insider status and offended everyone with her claims fo proximity to the President, who eventually did not come to her rescue when she was sacked.

The FBI did not immediately return CNN's request for comment on the congressman's remarks.
