Totally predictable, and totally needed:
“Former President Donald Trump’s upcoming Senate impeachment trial poses a security concern that federal law enforcement officials told lawmakers last week requires as many as 5,000 National Guard troops to remain in Washington through mid-March, according to four people familiar with the matter.
“The contingency force will help protect the Capitol from what was described as “impeachment security concerns,” including the possibility of mass demonstrations coinciding with the Senate’s trial, which is slated to begin the week of Feb. 8….
“…There is also some concern over potential unrest surrounding March 4, the date some QAnon conspiracy theorists believe Trump will be inaugurated for the second time.
“A Capitol Police spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.”
I bet not.
Imagine the fever dreams of springing Hair Füror from the trial, and who know’s what mischief sedition enthusiasts and insurrectionist fan bois Sens. Hawley and Cruz have dreamed up.
