We lost Mags and gained Dazey.    Worst trade in history. 

People don’t even use their 5 senses anymore. This demonstration was quite tame. Watch the videos. Always go to primary sources.

The national guard  is basically a state sponsored militia, so command falls to the governors. DC is weird but command is given to the Secretary of the Army but the request has to go through the Secretary of Defense first of all. 

 

The problem is the DC national guard is less than 3,000 active soldiers. The bulk requested would come from Virginia and Maryland, both ran by Democrats. Trump has no power beyond requesting the troops. So you request 10k troops from three places controlled by Democrats. 

 

Where Pelosi comes into this,is the Capitol Hill Police are technically part of Congress and are under their command. The Capitol Hill Police in turn are responsible for the security of the Capitol. Trump requests 10,000 national guard troops to secure the Capitol, the Capitol Hill Police decline the invitation. 

 

After the 6th, Pelosi forced the Capitol Hill Police Chief to resign, he basically critized Pelosi for not allowing the national guard to assist them. This is why during impeachment, Democrats requested witnesses, Republicans agreed a d said their first witness was Pelosi. The Democrats immediately dropped their request and went straight to closing arguments.

Thank you.
