Report Shows President Trump Offered National Guard to the United States Capitol Four Days Before 1/6

Just The News’ John Solomon exclusively obtained documents showing that President Trump offered National Guard protection to the United States Capitol four days before the events of January 6, 2021. According to Solomon’s reporting:

“An official timeline of the Jan. 6 tragedy assembled by Capitol Police shows that a Defense Department official reached out to a Capitol Police deputy chief, Sean Gallagher, on Jan. 2, 2021 to see if a request for troops was forthcoming, but the offer was quickly rejected after a consultation with then-Chief Steve Sund.” 
This reporting flies in the face of Pelosi’s sham political witch-hunt assertion this evening that President Trump did not offer the Capitol National Guard protection ahead of the events of January 6, 2021. Speaker Pelosi could have easily hardened the United States Capitol in those four days, but Capitol Police did not because of “optics.” Read the full report HERE.
