At the January 6 Congressional hearings happening this week, one Committee member said that Trump’s misdeeds were primarily centered around what he ‘did not do’ rather than what he did do. The Committee members claim he had a delayed response to the unrest at the Capitol and should have intervened earlier.
One detail that Democrats continue to hone in on is that President Trump did not activate the National Guard to quell the chaos at the protest. The Pentagon claims that Trump never reached out to them to formulate a response.
On Thursday, critical race theory obsessed Mark Milley and RINO Liz Cheney teamed up to repeat that lie at the January 6 hearings.
“Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said during the January 6 Select Committee hearing on Thursday that then-President Donald Trump did not call the Pentagon to request National Guard troops to address the Capitol attack, but they did not mention Trump had already approved National Guard troops.
During their first hearing on Thursday, the committee aired footage from Milley testifying to the committee that Trump never called the Pentagon that day, although the then-Vice President called several times and gave “very explicit, very direct, unambiguous” orders to deploy the National Guard. The insinuation was that Trump condoned the violence at the Capitol.”
President Trump made a request to Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller on January 5 for 10,000 National Guard troops to be deployed for the January 6th protests, which included a January 4th memo signed by President Trump that gave the Army Secretary the authority to deploy National Guardsmen on January 6th.
The mayor of Washington D.C PUBLICLY acknowledged these requests on Twitter the day before the protests.
To be clear, the District of Columbia is not requesting other federal law enforcement personnel and discourages any additional deployment without immediate notification to, and consultation with, MPD if such plans are underway. pic.twitter.com/FhnNe1dWeJ

General Milley and the sham January 6th Committee are outright lying to the American people to demonize President Trump.
