REPORT: Pentagon Did Not Delay Sending Guards to Capitol on Jan. 6th


The Pentagon responded quickly to urgent requests for National Guard assistance on January 6th, according to a Defense Department inspector general report released Wednesday. 

“We also determined that DoD officials did not delay or obstruct the DoD’s response,” the report reads, per Just the News.

The report contradicts Pelosi’s narrative that the Pentagon delayed National Guard dispatch. 

It also found that former Defense Secretary Chris Miller and former Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy acted reasonably in deploying an additional round of soldiers more than three hours after calls for assistance were made by local and federal officials.
