Devin Nunes, CEO of Truth Social, questioned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in July about why Capitol Police did not take further security precautions before and on the day of the violence.
The topic was discussed by Nunes, a former Republican representative, and Kash Patel, who worked for Nunes when he was the head of the House Intelligence Committee, in an interview with Newsmax’s “Spicer & Co.” Eventually, Patel rose to the position of top official in Trump’s administration.
“There was intelligence ahead of time that the Capitol Police should have known – which clearly Kash over at the White House, they knew, which is why President Trump authorized National Guard troops,” according to Nunes.
“You know there are tens of thousands of people coming, and you do nothing? And this is the question Nancy Pelosi is going to have to answer because the payback is going to be a ‘you-know-what’ if Republicans are successful this November,” he added.
Donald Trump, a previous president, is now posing questions in a related vein.
According to estimates, 4,000 illegal immigrants are currently “inundating” the streets of Washington, D.C. Given that there are roughly 689,545 people living in Washington, D.C., this amount is not unusual.
Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington, D.C., wants to use the National Guard to deal with these 4,000 illegal immigrants.
She is eager to mobilize the National Guard to evacuate 4,000 people. However, she refused to follow the same procedure on January 6.
On the sixth, a much larger number of people flocked to the area, and President Trump and numerous agencies asked that troops be dispatched to the D.C. region to maintain order.
President Trump posed the following query on Truth Social:
The Mayor of Washington, D.C., wants the National Guard to help with the thousands of Illegal Immigrants, coming from the insane Open Border, that are flooding the City, but refused National Guard help when it came to providing Security at the Capitol Building for a far larger crowd on January 6th. Figure that one out?
If we sent the National Guard to the border we would not need them in Washington DC — James Jay Carafano on July 29, 2022
According to the Epoch Times, “Bowser’s government has sent two separate letters to the White House and the Pentagon seeking federal help, describing the situation at the nation’s capital as a “humanitarian crisis.” In one of the letters, Bowser added that the arriving immigrants had brought her city to a “tipping point””
The other letter from Democrat Bowser targeted Arizona and Texas, claiming that’ “cruel political gamesmanship from the Governors of Texas and Arizona.”
The mayor of Washington, D.C., has additionally asserted that immigrants are “being tricked” into choosing to go by bus to the capital.

Over one million illegal immigrants have been dumped on Texas and Arizona border towns since Joe Biden took office and it took an influx of less than 4,000 into Washington DC for @MayorBowser to call in the National Guard.

Trump asked Piglosy for 10,000 National Guard troops on January 6th, why was that denied? Because that shit was planned by the liberals as a smoke screen to hide the fraudulent election that’s why, prove me wrong, I’ll wait

The 4,000 illegal aliens and border crossers who have arrived recently represent a fraction of the total number of people who cross America’s border illegally every day.
Nearly 130,000 illegal aliens and border crossers were caught in Texas border towns alone in June.
