The GOP and Republican lawmakers have done everything they can to protect Donald Trump from an investigation into January 6th. That is to be expected. The party has shown that they are all in on the former president and elected officials are terrified of incurring his wrath.What is more concerning, though, is how cagey the Pentagon has been in answering questions about their links to Trump on that day. During his Tuesday show, Joe Scarborough ripped into the agency for their silence.
“It’s more important to know what happened between the White House and the Pentagon,” the Morning Joe host began. “Why was there such delay? Why didn’t the National Guard get moving? We all know Donald Trump, the commander in chief, was loving what he was seeing. We all know he gutted the Pentagon and he had fired a lot of the top people there. There were not a lot of independent thinkers at the Pentagon at that time.”
“I am no expert in what’s going on at the Pentagon, obviously none of us are Colin Powell, but anybody that saw what happened that morning and now is hearing the Pentagon saying, ‘Nothing to see here, move along, move along’ — we all know they’re lying. We all know they’re covering up. We need a tick-tock, a second-by-second accounting of where the Pentagon was, why they were dragging to their feet, why they let our Capitol, why Trump’s leaders inside the Pentagon and why the commander in chief himself, why did they let our Capitol get ransacked and ravaged, torn to shreds excrement spread on the walls — the people’s house defiled.”
