After Democrats Plan For National Guard To Stay In D.C. For Months – Republicans Demand Defense Department To Give An Explanation

What’s Happening:

Americans were stunned when Nancy Pelosi and Democrats ordered thousands of National Guardsmen to D.C.

They were disgusted and outraged to see our men and women forced to sleep on floors and in garages.

Some states called back their troops, fed up with how they were treated. But Democrats in D.C. claim they are still needed, for no discernable reason.

Now, Republican lawmakers are finally demanding some answers.

From Fox News:

A group of House Republicans are asking the Defense Department to brief them on why it is necessary for the National Guard to remain on Capitol Hill, amid plans to keep them there into March…

“Our intention is for the briefing to cover ongoing threats to the Capitol, justification of the decision for a significant troop presence through mid-March, and plans for troop utilization during the time period,” the letter, obtained by Fox News, says.

The American people have been given very little explanation as to why thousands of guardsmen are still in D.C.

At first, Democrats claimed it was to prevent any threats during the Inauguration. That was a bit of a stretch, considering nobody went to the Inauguration.

Now, Pelosi and her henchmen want these soldiers there, because… Your guess is as good as mine.

Republicans are demanding answers for why these troops need to be taken from their homes to sleep in garages and in the streets.

Wild claims about threats against the Capitol don’t appear to be materializing. Do Pelosi and the left want them there—just as a show of power?

Democrats always balked when Trump wanted military parades, claiming he was showing off his power like some kind of dictator.

What does it say when Democrats want a seemingly permanent presence of force in Washington, D.C.?

Republicans want proof that there are threats present in the city, to justify the guardsmen’s presence.

Will Democrats—or the Pentagon—really explain why?

Or is this more nonsense coming from Capitol Hill?

Key Takeaways:

  • Republican lawmakers are demanding answers from the DOD over the ongoing guardsmen deployment.
  • Democrats want National Guardsmen deployed until March, citing no credible reason.
  • Americans were outraged at seeing our troops forced to sleep on the floor or in the streets.
