They are trying to make sure another assault on the capital doesn’t happen during the Impeachment trial. Of course this is crazy, unless Trump gave the order for that. Which he could do at the drop of the hat. An order he did give already, which is why he is the defendant in that very Impeachment trial. Unlikely? Yes. Impossible? No. You don’t want to give these people the idea that they can storm the Capital again. As Spartan has already ascertained, there is no explanation for some ulterior motive to keep a few thousand National Guardsmen around. It doesn’t show strength. It doesn’t serve to improve the public perception of the Democratic Party. It serves no purpose at all except for being a deterrent to the unlikely event that Trump would call his followers to arms. Unlikely, but he did it once already. So not impossible.
