The Joe Biden administration is “vetting” our servicemen and women in the military before they are deemed fit to protect the incoming President.
And Texas Governor Greg Abbott is furious about it.
“This is the most offensive thing I’ve ever heard,” said Abbott. “No one should ever question the loyalty or professionalism of the Texas National Guard.”
“@TexasGuard I authorized more than 1,000 to go to DC. I’ll never do it again if they are disrespected like this,” tweeted the Republican Governor.

According to Breitbart News, “Abbott’s remark followed reports of officials vetting troops over concerns of an inside attack, although officials have not identified a specific threat to justify the additional security measures.”
Wait, they are doing all of this even though there is no evidence to support such efforts?
“While we have no intelligence indicating an insider threat, we are leaving no stone unturned in securing the capital,” said acting defense secretary Christopher C. Miller.
I remember when acting on baseless theories with no evidence was frowned on by the left.
