Could this be true?

In a statement to Newsmax, former chief of staff to the acting United States Secretary of Defense during former President Donald Trump’s tenure, Kash Patel, said Trump was refused a request to send between 10,000 and 20,000 National Guardsman to the Capitol leading up to the January 6th insurrection.

Patel revealed that Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said “no in writing” to a request to send ten to twenty thousand National Guardsmen.

Discussing the events on “Spicer & Co.” Patel said Trump took preemptive action by authorizing ten to twenty thousand “National Guards’ men and women” two days before the January 6th insurrection.

With the former president’s authorization, Patel said they approached Mayor Bowser and “Capitol Police, who are, of course, reporting to Nancy Pelosi” to get a request from the mayor and Capitol Police to comply with federal law, something he says both Bowser and Capitol Police said, “‘no,’ in writing.”

As reported by Newsmax, the publication spoke to a representative of Patel, who substantiated Patel’s remarks. The representative said the document in which Pelosi said ‘no’ exists “somewhere” but continued by saying he no longer had access to that information.

However, neither Patel nor his representative confirmed whether Pelosi’s statements referred to a DOD timeline or another document.

While on Spice and Co, Patel also revealed that he hadn’t been able to release his transcripts of the interview he conducted with the January 6th panel because, despite him and his lawyers asking them “repeatedly” to release them, the panel continued to delay.
