    The CIC doesn't request troops, he orders them. Wake up and smell what you're shoveling.

    Trump is lying, you think it would take Trump this long to say that, lol, the guy lies like most breath air

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

    so what the op is saying is that Trump "knew" of the dangers... and incited his supporters anyways?

    Trump was the one that invited them there on the 6th, never canceled the event knowing this danger, gave a speech knowing this danger... really?

    The DC national guard was already deployed in the area that day. There just aren't many of them and they were mostly there to handle traffic. The 40 members who were the quick reaction force were not allowed to respond on their own initiative as that power had been taken away from commanders in the field because they were deemed to have been racists by the left due to the manner they unilaterally responded to the June race protests. Their commanding general also cited that they didn't get the request from the capitol police until 25 minutes before the capitol was breached, not giving them enough time to get the approval to respond and get there.

    All during our summer of love it was said that the Governors were who decided to call the guard or not. Trump offered, they rejected. Why would it be different in DC?

    Forgetting Trump for a minute, why are the troops still there?

    Is Biden embalmed and sewed to his desk and there is no one to call them off?

    In DC the national guard's chain of command is the Prez. He did give an order but that officer sat on it. No reason why at this point in time. It may had something to do with his discussions with Pelosi.

    That was a Trump rally, not a SOTU speech. It was despicable.

    He has time on the 6th to tell the rioters he loved them, but no way he could mention he wanted the guard lol

    There was no need for that faux request for additional troops if Il Duce Donnie hadn't lied about the election being rigged and asked his supporters to come to Washington DC: "Big protest in D.C. on January 6th. Be there, will be wild!"

    You might want to look up the House Sergeant of Arms and his role and who he answers to.....

    You might learn something!

    You might want to look up the Chief of the United States Capitol Police and their role, and who they answer to.

    Capitol security is provided by the sergeants-at-arms , who are the chief law enforcement officers for the House and Senate, in coordination with the Capitol Police, a federal law enforcement agency.

    The House sergeant-at-arms reports to the speaker of the House, or Pelosi at the time of the attack. The Senate sergeant-at-arms reports to the Senate majority leader; in the days leading up to and including Jan. 6, that was Kentucky Republican Mitch McConnell.

    Security of the Capitol Complex is the direct responsibility of the four-member Capitol Police Board, which includes both sergeants-at-arms, said Jane Campbell, president and CEO of the United States Capitol Historical Society.



    Again...

    So Yes Nancy Pelosi plays a roll.. Thanks for playing.. Take your sarcastic video and shove it.


    As far as what you said.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Capitol_Police

    The United States Capitol Police (USCP) is a federal law enforcement agency in the United States charged with protecting the United States Congress within the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its territories. It answers to the Capitol Police Board and is the only full-service federal law enforcement agency appointed by the legislative branch of the federal government of the United States.

    I guess we all learned today that POTUS can only ask nicely for the military to do stuff. Apparently all troops answer to Nancy Pelosi.
