Regarding the Capitol Riot, and the effort by Capitol Police to HELP in preparation for a potential problem, note that "....House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving rebuffed the idea, arguing he was uncomfortable with the "optics"..."

You. You're the missing link.

But, it IS a fact that the DC police, prior to the day of the riot and knowing in advance that there could be a Capitol breach (long before Trump spoke), asked the House Sergeant at Arms (a Democrat) if he wanted the National Guard. And, the Democrat said "no."

Oh, that's funny !

But you should not call him that since you only have a few posts. You have to be on the website for at least 10 years before you can say what you think on here, or they will call you out on it. So be very careful and only criticize new people.

Cite your source. No source, no credibility.

Sounds like it was a police failure. Whether there was a motive or not is not mentioned.
Three days before supporters of President Donald Trump rioted at the Capitol, the Pentagon asked the U.S Capitol Police if it needed National Guard manpower. And as the mob descended on the building Wednesday, Justice Department leaders reached out to offer up FBI agents. The police turned them down both times, according to senior defense officials and two people familiar with the matter.

Despite plenty of warnings of a possible insurrection and ample resources and time to prepare, the Capitol Police planned only for a free speech demonstration.

Still stinging from the uproar over the violent response by law enforcement to protests last June near the White House, officials also were intent on avoiding any appearance that the federal government was deploying active duty or National Guard troops against Americans.
So the Capitol Police had set up no hard perimeter around the Capitol. Officers were focused on one side where lawmakers were entering to vote to certify Biden's win.

Barricades were set up on the plaza in front of the building, but police retreated from the line and a mob of people broke through. Lawmakers, at first unaware of the security breach, continued their debate. Soon they were cowering under chairs. Eventually they were escorted from the House and Senate. Journalists were left alone in rooms for hours as the mob attempted to break into barricaded rooms.

If you're going to quote someone else's words, it's common procedure to provide a source link. If you don't, how is anyone to know you aren't pulling them out of your ass for click bait? It doesn't help your credibility.
