House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy announced his opposition to a commission investigating the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th. Citing the Democrat’s refusal to investigate violent acts committed by their supporters and activists, he asserted that he “cannot support” the legislation that would create the supposedly bipartisan commission: “The renewed focus by Democrats to now stand up an additional commission ignores the political violence that has struck American cities, a Republican Congressional baseball practice, and, most recently, the deadly attack on Capitol Police on April 2, 2021. Given the political misdirections that have marred this process, given the
Outer fencing surrounding the U.S. Capitol complex will be removed this weekend, with acting House Sergeant-at-Arms Timothy P. Blodgett admitting there is no “credible threat” that “warrants” the perimeter. “In an email to members and staff, Blodgett said that by Monday, Independence and Constitution avenues will be open for traffic. The inner layer of fencing will remain around the Capitol Square area while the Architect of the Capitol makes security repairs to the Capitol,” Roll Call explains. The acting House Sergeant-at-Arms emphasized, “there does not exist a known, credible threat against Congress or the Capitol Complex that warrants the temporary
Republican senators wrote to the acting Chief of U.S. Capitol police questioning the presence of the National Guard and extensive fencing around the Capitol. The March 12th letter emphasizes how the justification for the two security measures remain unclear to the American people – and even the Senate. “Since the events of January 6th, Capitol Police has repeatedly failed to provide specific credible threat intelligence to adequately justify the current Capitol security posture, which remains disproportionate to the available intelligence,” the letter signed by five Republican senators notes. “As it relates to fencing, it is entirely unclear to us why
National Guard troops surrounding the U.S. Capitol have received meals that have been undercooked and contained metal shavings, sending over a dozen people to the hospital. A whistleblower – a Staff Sergeant with Michigan National Guard – spoke with ABC7 meals he and his team have been receiving. “Yesterday, for instance, there were 74 different meals found with raw beef in them. Just yesterday, soldiers had found metal shavings in their food,” he outlines. The quality of the meals has sent more than a dozen soldiers to sick call or the hospital according to the Staff Sergeant, who insists the
Former Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving’s discussions with Nancy Pelosi factored into his “blender of decision making” to delay deploying the National Guard at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, according to reports from the Daily Caller. “Pelosi’s office had previously impressed upon Irving that the National Guard was to remain off Capitol Grounds, Irving allegedly told House Admin,” the article summarized. The article’s sources – three individuals “with direct knowledge of Irving’s talk with House Admin” – also revealed the discussions centered around “optics” and “occurred in the months prior to the Jan. 6 riot.” The article also discredits
Senate Democrats introduced legislation to designate the Mayor of Washington D.C. as the Commander in Chief of the National Guard – despite reports Mayor Muriel Bowser refused to deploy the troops ahead of January 6th and during violent Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots. The January bill – District of Columbia National Guard Home Rule Act – seeks to “extend to the Mayor of the District of Columbia the same authority over the National Guard of the District of Columbia as the Governors of the several States.” Appearing to be in response to the events on January 6th at the
