Why are there thousands of armed guards in the capitol?
I don’t know.
Apparently, lawmakers don’t know either.
In an interview with Fox News, Rep. Michael Waltz of Florida reveals that lawmakers really aren’t getting any answers as to why there is still a troop presence in Washington D.C.
Could it be that Democrats knew what they did was wrong?
Could it be simple political posturing by Pelosi and her cronies?
Who knows……after all they won’t tell anyone including lawmakers, so who really knows what is going on here?
Take a look, weigh the evidence, and decide for yourself:

Most Americans may not realize that after Democratic leaders in Washington, D.C., insisted on mobilizing and deploying tens of thousands of National Guard troops to protect Joe Biden from absolutely nothing during his inauguration last month, several thousand of them remain in the nation’s capital.
Yet, many members of Congress don’t seem to know why. Worse, they can’t get anyone who is in charge of Capitol security (we’re looking at you, Speaker Pelosi) to explain it.
"We still have National Guardsmen out there, away from their families, away from their jobs, supplementing the police, and yet we can’t get a briefing on what is this dire threat that requires so many people. We still don’t have answers,” Rep. Michael Waltz, R-Fla., told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on Monday.

From a security standpoint, there are Capitol police officers at these magnetometers, frisking us down ... rather than being out there, securing the Capitol grounds, from, by the way, threats that we can't get briefings on. We still have National Guardsmen out there, away from their families, away from their jobs, supplementing the police, and yet we can't get a briefing on what is this dire threat that requires so many people ...
Why do we have more troops in the Capitol than we have in Iraq and Afghanistan combined? We still don't have answers.
We turned out the Republican base [in Florida in 2020]. We turned out President Trump's base, and we grew the tent among Black, Hispanic ... and Jewish voters, and really, we focused on the issues, whether it was school choice, that resonated with Black women ... At the end of the day, we tripled his [Trump's] margin [of victory] from 2016 from 1% to 3% ... The party really operated in concert, from the national level to the state level to the local level, toward those goals.
