(PatrioticPost.com)- Former White House Chief of Staff under the Trump administration, Mark Meadows, dropped a bombshell on Fox News recently, telling viewers that former President Donald Trump offered security assistance on multiple occasions before the January 6 riots.
His comments came just before the February 9 Senate impeachment hearings began, where Democrats allege that the former president incited an insurrection by telling supporters to “fight” for election integrity.
Speaking to Maria Bartiromo, Meadows also explained how the former president was very insistent throughout 2020 on using the National Guard to keep the peace on American streets.
“We also know that in January, but also throughout the summer, that the president was very vocal in making sure that we had plenty of National Guard, plenty of additional support because he supports our rule of law and supports our law enforcement and offered additional help,” he said.
Meadows also explained how in January, as many as 10,000 National Guard troops were already told to be on guard by the Secretary of Defense during the Trump administration.
“That was a direct order from President Trump and yet here is what we see, all kinds of blame going around but yet not a whole lot of accountability,” he added.
On January 6, a violent riot broke out at the Capitol Building. Left-wing and right-wing activists broke into the building and caused destruction. They were even joined by a CNN reporter who was caught on film taking part in the riot.
John Sullivan, a Black Lives Matter and Antifa activist, was also caught in the protest and admitted pretending to be a Trump supporter.

The violence on Capitol Hill was also pre-organized, according to the FBI, meaning President Trump didn’t incite the riot during his speech on the day.
As it stands, the Senate does not have the votes required to convict former President Donald Trump, and many Senators have already stipulated that impeaching a private citizen is not constitutional.
Even CNN concedes Capitol Hill violence was pre-planned. The riot was perpetrated, in part, by radical leftists (John Sullivan).
Consequently, the rushed House impeachment appears even more farcical. pic.twitter.com/aHVWjDe707

Nonetheless, Meadows’ bombshell on Fox News that former President Trump called for more security in Capitol Hill could change this entire discussion.
