National Guard Bureau Chief General Daniel Hokanson and Pentagon spokesperson Jonathan Hoffman held a briefing on the security preparations for the presidential inauguration taking place the following day. They announced that 12 members of the National Guard had been removed from their inauguration security duties following potential concerns uncovered during a vetting process. The officials declined to provide further details as to why the individuals were flagged other than, in two cases, for “inappropriate” comments or texts. The officials said they were taking the action “out of an abundance of caution” and further investigation would take place. Additionally, Defense Department Washington Headquarters Services Director Thomas Muir, who was leading the agency’s transition efforts, spoke about the new leadership team that would take over in an acting capacity at noon on January 20 until the Biden administration can fill their roles. close
