We just covered the disturbing news that Nancy Pelosi is using the National Guard as her private army and actually ordered machine guns to the streets of Washington for the inauguration.
Now, we’re learning that the 25,000 ideologically vetted guardsmen are set to remain in Washington DC for unspecified reasons.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The matter of why thousands of National Guard troops remain in Washington has become the capital city’s newest game of hot potato.
The acting Army secretary deferred a question to the bureau about why so many National Guard troops remained positioned around the District of Columbia on Monday. The FBI then declined to respond to request for comment by the Washington Examiner.
“What I can tell you is in terms of what [the FBI is] briefing us is, there are several upcoming events,” acting Army Secretary John Whitley told reporters Monday on a conference call when asked about the current threat assessment in Washington, D.C.
“We do not engage in that intelligence work ourselves,” he said. “We rely on our federal partners and particularly the FBI to provide that information.”
This is chilling. First of all, we should never “rely on the FBI” for anything. We learned that on 9/11, and we learned it again during the Mueller investigation.

Now we’re learning that those troops are staying in DC. What is going on?
