Florida GOP Sen. Rick Scott on Tuesday got no response from security and law enforcement officials when he asked why the National Guard is still deployed at the U.S Capitol complex roughly six weeks after the Jan. 6 riot — with no known credible security threat.

“Is that a no from everybody?” Scott asked after questioning three former congressional security officials and the acting chief of D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department about the matter during the joint congressional hearing on the preparation and response to the riot.

“No one has any idea why we have the National Guard here?” Scott asked after a brief silence.

None of the witnesses had concrete reasons as to why the Guard continues to be deployed behind a roughly 7-foot-high, razor-wire topped fence. There are currently 5,000 National Guard troops around the Capitol.

Acting MDP Chief Robert J. Contee said he has not received any threat assessment connected to why Guard troops are still in the Capitol.

Former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund told Scott that when he was at the Capitol two days after the riot he “wasn’t aware of any additional intelligence at that point.”

“They were just concerned about possible violent extremists regrouping and staging another attack on the Capitol,” he said about officials now in charge. Sund resigned in the aftermath of the breach.

Scott ended his questioning by saying he was “flabbergasted” that there was no public information to explain the National Guard still at the Capitol.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
