President Donald Trump did not intentionally delay deployment of the National Guard to the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, the Pentagon’s inspector general has determined.
Democrats and their Big Media wing have long claimed that Trump ordered military leadership to hold up the National Guard for over two hours after the Capitol Police chief requested assistance.
The Pentagon IG destroys that narrative. The IG found no intentional delay in deployment of the Guard occurred and that Trump and his national security team responded reasonably to the situation and requests from the Capitol Police.
Based on the Pentagon IG’s report, The New York Times falsely reported that “Trump initially rebuffed and resisted requests to mobilize the National Guard to quell violent protests at the Capitol, according to a person with knowledge of the events.”
