Previously suppressed transcript proves Trump called for 10K National Guard troops for J6 protests

 June 11, 2024

New revelations regarding Jan. 6 and how the select committe and powerful Democrats handled the situation have come to light in recent days. 

According to The Federalist, one of the shocking revelations included a previously "suppressed" transcript that proved former President Donald Trump pushed to have some 10,000 National Guard troops deployed to protect the Capitol.

The outlet claims former Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R) January 6 Committee purposely suppressed that information, which had been contested in the mainstream media for years.

Cheney and the committee had previously claimed that there was "no evidence" to support Trump's claim that he attemped to have National Guard troops deployed at the time.

What's going on?

The transcript, reported exclusively by the outlet, noted that Cheney personally attended an interview during the investigation from a "key source" that confirmed Trump had made the request.

The interview in question was with Deputy Chief of Staff Anthony Ornato.

The Federalist noted:

Deputy Chief of Staff Anthony Ornato’s first transcribed interview with the committee was conducted on January 28, 2022. In it, he told Cheney and her investigators that he overheard White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows push Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser to request as many National Guard troops as she needed to protect the city.

Not only did Ornato confirm that Trump had suggested deploying some 10K troops to help keep the peace during the Jan. 5 demonstrations at the Capitol and around Washington D.C., he also noted that the White House was frustrated with Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller's slowness in rallying reinforcements.

The transcript from the interview, not surprisingly, was buried from the public view, for obvious political reasons.

The Federalist noted:

Not only did the committee not accurately characterize the interview, they suppressed the transcript from public review. On top of that, committee allies began publishing critical stories and even conspiracy theories about Ornato ahead of follow-up interviews with him. Ornato was a career Secret Service official who had been detailed to the security position in the White House.

Loudermilk weighs in

Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA), chairman of the House Administration’s Subcommittee on Oversight, explained how the House J6 Committee hid the transcript that would have immediately busted the anti-Trump narrative at the time.

"The former J6 Select Committee apparently withheld Mr. Ornato’s critical witness testimony from the American people because it contradicted their pre-determined narrative. Mr. Ornato’s testimony proves what Mr. Meadows has said all along: President Trump did in fact offer 10,000 National Guard troops to secure the U.S. Capitol, which was turned down," Loudermilk said.

Loudermilk's committee is currently reviewing the work done by the highly partisan J6 Committee.

There's no telling what bombshell will come as a result of the oversight.
