Speaker Nancy Pelosi finally faced the reality that peaceful tourists boycotting Washington, D.C. by the millions hurts democracy and that America's bad image worldwide was personally being blamed on her delusion that peaceful tourists from Japan are a threat to her squad of extremist Congressmen. That's why the National Guard isbeing sent home now, " said Eugene Delgaudio, president of Public Advocate.
The thousands of National Guard troops who are still serving in Washington, DC following the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol will reportedly be returning home this week.
The Department of Defense declined to extend the deployment of the remaining 2,149 troops past Sunday, according to TV station WUSA9.
“The Capitol Police have not requested the Guard to stay past May 23,” Capt. Chelsi B. Johnson, a DC guard spokesperson, told the news outlet.
“Once the mission concludes, D.C. National Guard will return to normal operations and the out-of-state Guard members will return to their home station.”
About 26,000 National Guard troops were deployed to the nation’s capital after the deadly riot by supporters of former President Donald Trump in a bid to prevent Congress from certifying President Biden’s victory.
