Trump Wanted To Deploy 10K National Guard Soldiers To Protect Him And Insurrectionists On Jan 6: Report



A new report on the January 6 insurrection revealed this week that Donald Trump wanted to walk along his supporters that day and wanted the National Guard to protect him and them.

“On Jan 2nd, rally organizer Katrina Pierson informed Wren that President Trump’s Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, had said the President was going to ‘call on everyone to march to the [C]apitol,'” the report cited. “Inside the White House, the President’s intent was well-known. Cassidy Hutchinson, an aide to Meadows, recalled in her testimony that she overheard discussions to this effect toward the end of December or early January. One such discussion included an exchange between Meadows and Rudolph Giuliani that occurred on January 2nd. Hutchinson understood that President Trump wanted to have a crowd at the Capitol in connection with what was happening inside—the certification of the electoral count.”

The goal, she explained was to delay the certification and then they’d be able to send the vote to state legislatures to overturn it. The questionable legal theory is now before the Supreme Court as a question about the future of elections.

“During a call with members of the House Freedom Caucus,” the report continued describing the tea party members, “the idea of telling people to go to the Capitol was discussed as a way to encourage Congress to delay the electoral college certification and send it back to the States. On January 4th, [Women for America First’s] Kylie Kremer informed Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow and an ally of President Trump, that ‘POTUS is going to have us march there [the Supreme Court]/the Capitol’ but emphasized that the plan ‘stays only between us.’ The ‘Stop the Steal’ coalition was aware of the President’s intent. On January 5th, Ali Alexander sent a text to a journalist saying: ‘Ellipse then US capitol [sic]. Trump is supposed to order us to the capitol [sic] at the end of his speech but we will see.'”

Pierson then told the committee that Trump thought, “Well, I should walk with the people,” but at the time she didn’t take him “seriously.” Advisers tried to talk him out of it, including White House Senior Advisor Max Miller, who “shot it down immediately,” the report said, because there were concerns about Trump’s safety. Pierson agreed, but Trump was firm. That’s when he first floated the idea of 10,000 National Guardsmen deployed to protect him and his supporters from any supposed threats by leftwing counter-protesters.
