Weeks after the Capitol riot, the National Guard still hasn’t left their post in Washington DC.
Nearly 25 000 National Guard members were called upon following the unrest on January 6th.
The place looks like a war zone.
Around the Capitol, you can see officers and guardsmen standing outside of a fence with shields and tactical gear. There are military vehicles blocking entrances to certain streets on Capitol Hill.
Let’s not forget that members of the National Guard were made to vacate the U.S. Capitol and sent to rest in a nearby parking garage, while providing security around U.S. President Joe Biden’s inauguration.
And now a video shows more busloads of National Guard as they arrived in DC this morning.

As Raheem Kassam tweeted:
It’s below 28 degrees F (feels like -6C) on Capitol Hill tonight and Democrats have National Guard members standing outside around the Capitol in order to underwrite their phony “insurrection” narrative.

The upcoming second Senate impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump is a “major” security concern for Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Capitol, according to a Jan. 25 Instagram post that states the National Guard will remain in the city out of an abundance of caution.
Given the huge numbers of national guard members that are still present at DC, why did they called for more national guard members?
