Pelosi Adviser Wants Permanent Military Presence in Washington, D.C.
A panel led by Lt. Gen. Russel Honore is recommending that a permanent military presence be created in Washington, D.C. The report, which was obtained by Fox News, describes a Quick Reaction force for the District of Columbia and is motivated by the continued threats government officials claim to be detecting regarding violence in the capital following the January 6 events in Washington, D.C.
On a related front, government officials were fearful of a QAnon assault on the Capitol on march 4, as this was the original date for the peaceful transfer of power in the Constitution. Regardless, there was no materialization of this threat. In the meantime, these same officials are now claiming renewed threats for March 20.
