D.C. National Guard Commander Brigadier General William Walker testifies before a joint Senate committee hearing on the January 6 attack and the delay in receiving Pentagon authorization to send in National Guard troops to help secure the Capitol perimeter, which he says was "unusual." Brigadier General Walker also speaks about concerns raised over "optics" of armed National Guard troops at the Capitol and the possibility their appearance would incite the crowd. He also says that when he sought approval during the summer protests following the death of George Floyd there was no difficulty in getting approval and that there was no concern over optics on that occasion. General Walker says he finally received authorization from the Pentagon to send in National Guard troops at 5:08pm on January 6--four hours after the breach. close
