Nancy Pelosi won’t answer questions about how low she plans to keep the National Guard in DC – but emails obtained by Fox News indicate that the Guard will remain in DC through the summer and perhaps longer.
Why do we need the National Guard in the nation’s capital? Are Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi only able to remain in power by the force of a military dictatorship?
The National Guard could stay in Washington, D.C. for the next several months, with an internal email indicating troops could be on the ground in the U.S. capital until Fall 2021, according to a recent report.
An internal communication obtained by local affiliate FOX 5 DC shows the National Security Council has asked the Department of Defense (DoD) to coordinate plans with the U.S. Capitol Police for continued deployment beyond the previously set March date.
Officials estimate that the total cost for the National Guard deployment at $450 million.
The news had many commentators wondering why the nation’s capital looks like an armed camp. Is this “healing”?
Now that impeachment is done can DC stop having barbed wire fences and humvees around the capitol like this is a military base in Baghdad?
