As we highlighted earlier, at least 5,000 National Guard soldiers will remain in DC until the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump is completed, a process which won't be concluded for at least six weeks.
"President @JoeBiden, have you declared martial law? Because that is what it's starting to look and feel like. Let our troops get back home to their families," Gabbard tweeted.
During an appearance on Fox News, Gabbard was asked if it was justified to have so many troops guard the Capitol building given that there was absolutely no unrest during or after Biden's inauguration.
While asserting that troops had been "mistreated" after they were made to sleep on cement floors, the former Congresswoman said that the 25,000 troops used to occupy the capital was a massive overreaction given there was no evidence of an imminent attack.
