    Wise people are always saying "Democrats accuse you of that they themselves are doing." Truer words were never spoken.

    This is just so typical of democrat scheming while counting on the press for cover.

    But Trump is a pathological liar.

    Let him produce an official record of the request and I will believe him.

    That doesn't make sense. Why would he need 10K NGs If he didn't ask his supporters to show up ("going to be wild!") or incite them into going to the Capitol? Is there a history of him asking for the NG to oversee any of this other speeches?

    Trump never said 'go into the capitol', or riot, kill people, anything remotely leading people to break any laws.
    The FBI had reason to believe there would be trouble. They warned the Sergeant at Arms and Capitol Police. Trump did offer 10,000 NG. This isn't new info. If I recall, the mayor wanted to deploy them. Pelosi did not.

    I was thinking the same thing. Why would he need 10k national guard troops, if the protest was going to be "peaceful"? This doesn't pass the smell test. However, Trump supporters are easily duped.

    Congress doesn't give the DC National Guard orders - the President does. OP complete and utter fail. You should be embarrassed for posting such easily debunked drivel.

    OK, Mooooving along now. It is not necessary to believe or not believe, but to follow the evidence.

    I'm impressed that so many took time out of their busy days to crap all over my thread. Is there a trophy for that?

    The evidence is that Congress doesn't give ANY branch of the armed services orders. The President is the CIC. End of story, end of discussion. You can't crap on what's already bullshit.

    Yes, yes, he requested 10,000 national guard troops, and his inauguration crowd was the biggest ever, and 3 million illegals voted in 2016, and he won the 2020 election by millions, etc, etc. Let's see some actual receipts. I mean, the guy regularly made official proclamations via Twitter. Surely there's a tweet in the wayback machine indicating he was making such a request. What? There isn't? It's almost like the guy lies all the time or something.

    The request for troops if you honestly mean a request by the POTUS would not likely have been turned down. So who turned down Trump's request for troops, Putin?

    Mark Meadows (Chief of Staff) confirmed Trump's request for 10K Troops.

    You just nuked all the Leftists that posted in this thread up to the point of this post. When you take people down like that it's hilarious. I would have said "multiple head shots", but that is not allowed on this forum as Leftists complain that is a call for violence, when it's just a common forum statement when someone kills the opposition like you just did. In conclusion... well done.

    On the other hand, I wouldn't put it past her. Trump made a great SOTU speech, and Pelosi ripped it in half right in front of the entire nation and world as he was giving it. She is a bitter thing, brimming with animus.

    What you claim to “recall” was. made up very recently and peddled on one of the right wing trash blogs or social media feeds you listen to.

    There is NO evidence that Trump ever asked for anything. And a lot of evidence that suggest that HIS DoD sat on requests for reinformcements for hours.

    Other parts of your made up claims are refuted by testimony in Congress last week.

    And Trump certainly did say “march down to the Capitol (for the purpose of intimidating Congress into stopping certification of the election Trump lost). Do you need to see the video again???

    Oh, and since you’re batting 1000 in the BS department, tell us about what caused “The FBI had reason to believe there would be trouble”

    I’m sure you will be equally creative there too!

    Mark Meadows has no more credibility than Trump does.

    Not putting it past someone is not a source.

    I disagree he made a great SOTU address.
    Nothing that seeks to divide should be considered great and that speech had plenty of lies and divisive rhetoric

    Her ripping it apart was not warranted though.
