In a disgusting and disgraceful decision, the U.S. Capitol Police who operate under the authority and direction of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer – both Democrats – banished the National Guard troops, who’d been brought in from all over the country to guard the Capitol, to a parking garage.
“At least hundreds of National Guard members were forced out of a U.S. Capitol cafeteria resting area and into a parking garage nearby, putting them in close quarters with moving cars, exhaust fumes and troops potentially infected with the coronavirus, two soldiers told The Washington Post.
“The abrupt transfer came Thursday afternoon with no explanation, the soldiers said. Images of National Guard members sleeping on concrete Thursday night sparked outrage and an apparent reversal later in the night, as lawmakers said the service members would be moved back to the Capitol.
“The soldiers said they were not given a reason for the initial transfer. But defense officials said Capitol police moved the Guard members off the grounds as foot traffic from lawmakers and other officials increased in the area.”
