From the DC Council: “We understand that the request has subsequently been approved since we posted this online moments ago, but wanted to share it with you for the record.

DC COUNCIL STATEMENT ON DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE’S DENIAL OF DC’S NATIONAL GUARD DEPLOYMENT REQUEST

The District of Columbia Council issued the following statement today:

Today, the Department of Defense denied a request by Mayor Muriel Bowser to expand the responsibilities of the District of Columbia National Guard so that they would be authorized to protect and restore order at the Capitol Building. That request was denied.

The Council is in full support of the Mayor’s request. We are appalled that this fundamental request was denied. We urge the Department of Defense to reconsider their decision, and to allow the National Guard to restore safety and sanctity to the Capitol, the cornerstone of our Democracy.”
