Rep. Kinzinger’s Smear Against Rep. Greene Reveals the Holes in the Leftist Narrative About Trump and January 6 Security Arrangements

At Christmas time, the majority of people focus on Christmas. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who hasn't been able to stop embarrassing himself through his Twitter tirades, is the exception. This time, however, his tweets revealed just how uninformed and partisan the January 6 Committee's “investigation” was. He proved this when he attempted to criticize Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA).

Kinzinger tried to denigrate his co-lawmaker by claiming she played a role in “fomenting” the riot. He provided no evidence to support this, only the usual smear-and-run job. 

Greene tweeted: “1,000 people have been charged for J6, with possibly 1,000’s more to be charged. Most of these people were nonviolent. But Nancy Pelosi refused to bring in the National Guard ignoring Intel briefs & requests for the NG by Capitol Police and Pres Trump. Pelosi is complicit.”

Kinzinger responded to her argument about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the National Guard by claiming that only the president and secretary of the U.S. Army can send them out. He continued by declaring that if President Donald Trump had ordered the National Guard, they would have been present, and that Pelosi wasn't able to thwart the orders of the president.

If Trump ordered “10,000 or 20000” Guardsmen to be on hand for January 6th, there would have been 10.000 or 20,000 Guardsmen there on January 6th.

But he doesn't mention many details in his false rant, which is the problem. This is one reason why a large portion of the left is misinformed regarding the subject.

As mentioned in the past, the IG’s (Inspector General’s) report suggested that President Trump wanted to ensure that his rally that day was a “safe event.” On January 3, Trump asked about calling in the National Guard for what was believed to be a massive crowd.

“Mr. Miller and GEN Milley met with the President at the White House at 5:30 p.m.,” the IG reported. “The primary topic they discussed was unrelated to the scheduled rally. GEN Milley told us that at the end of the meeting, the President told Mr. Miller that there would be a large number of protestors on January 6, 2021, and Mr. Miller should ensure sufficient National Guard or Soldiers would be there to make sure it was a safe event. Gen Milley told us that Mr. Miller responded, ‘We’ve got a plan and we’ve got it covered.’”

On January 2, the Capitol Police's timeline of events indicates the Secretary of Defense's Carol Corbin texted USCP Deputy Chief Sean Gallagher to determine if the Capitol Police would like the National Guard at the Capitol. Gallagher replied to Corbin that he did not want to request the National Guard after consultation with Chief of the Capitol Police Steven Sund.

So Trump suggested the idea; however, it was rejected by the Capitol Police, who chose not to request the National Guard. If they're not asking for it, it's unlikely that it will be used. Of course, this challenges the notion that somehow Trump wanted violence, even though, in reality, the president not only believed it was necessary to have the National Guard present but also exhorted the people who were at his rally to behave “peacefully and patriotically.”

According to the Republicans’ report on January 6, House Speaker Pelosi's staff worked with the Capitol Police on the security for the day, in contrast to her claim that she was not involved in security. The Capitol Police are responsible for the security of the Capitol, not the National Guard. In addition, the Capitol Police rejected the offer of National Guard support.

Some left-leaning members of the public point to a letter written by Christopher Miller about the deployment of the National Guard to suggest that Trump somehow disabled the National Guard from protecting the Capitol. However, the people on the left failed to understand the letter and its context. The letter mentions a small body of the National Guard who had been assigned, at the request of D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, to crowd control. They were not sent to guard the Capitol, as there had been no formal request by the Capitol Police.

In a letter on January 5, which Bowser published on Twitter, she specifically mentioned the unarmed National Guard and not needing additional security people. “To be clear, the District of Columbia is not requesting other federal law enforcement personnel and discourages any additional deployment without immediate notification to, and consultation with, MPD if such plans are underway.”

As such, Bowser was acting on her own limited wishes.

Why? Because there was an abundance of leftist anger regarding the National Guard's reaction to the BLM/Antifa riots. It is important to comprehend the context of the discussion. In the event of any concerns being raised, they would likely originate from the left based on its history.

Why doesn't Kinzinger reveal all this information? Because it could destroy the carefully constructed story he and the mainly Democratic committee members have been using to deceive the American people. This is shameful.
