Evidence has surfaced suggesting that the Trump administration indeed offered to deploy the National Guard to D.C. on Jan. 6, 2021, thanks to a new police report on the timeline of events. According to the report obtained by Just the News, the Trump Pentagon suggested sending National Guard troops to Washington D.C. four days before Jan. 6.
The Capitol Police’s official timeline states that “Carol Corbin (DOD) texts USCP Deputy Chief Sean Gallagher, Protective Service Bureau, to determine whether the USCP is considering a request for National Guard soldiers for January 6, 2021.”
President Trump has long said he recommended moving thousands of National Guard troops into the U.S. Capitol in January 2021, blaming Nancy Pelosi for blocking the attempt to secure D.C.
In a statement made in February, Trump stated, “There would have been no January 6, as we know it, if Nancy Pelosi heeded my recommendation to bring 10,000 soldiers, or the National Guard, into the Capitol. End the Unselect Committee January 6th Witch Hunt right now.”
Further, the report contends that the event “may lead to a significantly dangerous situation for law enforcement and public safety.”
Just the News reported that Gallagher stated via text that support for the National Guard was not “forthcoming.” Additionally, the official timeline states that on Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2021, “COP Sund informs SSAA and HSAA in separate discussions about the DC National Guard ability to provide 125 troops if necessary.”
However, based on the official report, DOD support via the Pentagon, which would have been provided in the form of National Guard troops, was allegedly refused.
Former chief of staff to President Trump, Kash Patel, told Just the News that this new, official timeline of events lends even more credibility to the notion that National Guard support was stonewalled by the House and Senate sergeant at arms, who “report to Pelosi.”
Ultimately, the National Guard was not deployed to the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 before the event, leading President Trump to post the following question: “Why is Crazy Nancy Pelosi and her files, which reportedly have been largely destroyed and deleted, not under investigation for not properly securing the Capitol with Soldiers or the National Guard that were strongly recommended to her by me and others?”
