President Joe Biden has been keeping National Guard troops tucked away in cold Washington D.C. parking garages for no good reason that anyone knows, but that needs to end now, according to Sen. Tom Cotton.
“It is time to send the troops home,” said. Cotton “Look, there are too many — too many troops left in Washington. I’m not aware of any threat to justify continued presence today around the Capitol, much less into the fall.”
Cotton then called out Pelosi for also having blame in the debacle:
I think Nancy Pelosi will have a lot of questions to answer about what she knew leading up to the riot on January 6. There was a clear failure by the security leaders on Capitol Hill to prepare for January 6. The officers of the Capitol police performed bravely, but they’re right to have no confidence in their leadership. That doesn’t mean, though, that we should turn the Capitol into an armed fortress or camp for thousands of soldiers.
