National Guard troops are to be kept in Washington D.C. until mid March, according to a Politico report, with sources claiming that the soldiers will stay until the Democrats’ second attempt at impeachment of President Trump is complete.
The report claims that 7,000 troops will remain until the trial gets underway in February, after which 5,000 will stay until it condoles, which is likely to be six weeks later.
he official justification for keeping troops around the Capitol is “impeachment security concerns,” according to the report.
However, the Guard have been given virtually no information about what they are required to do, with one soldier describing the situation as “very unusual for any military mission.”
As we reported last week, thousands of the troops were forced to sleep OUTSIDE and in a parking Garage near the Capitol building after a Democratic lawmaker complained that ONE guardsmen was not wearing a face mask.
MILITARY SOURCE IN DC:
“For the last week my battalion has been sleeping on the floor in the Senate cafeteria. Today the Senate kicked us out & moved us to a cold parking garage.

This is how Joe Biden’s America treats solders.”
