Many will not understand why this is so distressing

Former and current members of law enforcement and the military appear to have participated in the Capitol riot.​

Defense officials say they are worried about an inside attack or some other threat from service members involved in securing President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, The Associated Press reported.​
As a result, the FBI is vetting all service members on hand in the capital to support the inauguration, an Army official told NBC News on Sunday.​
"The Army is working with the FBI to vet all service members supporting the Inauguration National Special Security Event," the official said.​
Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy told the AP that officials were conscious of the potential threat, and he warned commanders to be on the lookout for any issues as the inauguration approaches.​
Former and current members of law enforcement agencies and the military appear to have participated in the Capitol incursion. A corporal in the Virginia National Guard was charged last week in federal court in connection with the violence, which has been linked to five deaths and widespread damage throughout the building.​
Defense officials have said they have seen no evidence of any threats.​
"While we have no intelligence indicating an insider threat, we are leaving no stone unturned in securing the capital," acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller said in a statement Monday. "This type of vetting often takes place by law enforcement for significant security events."​
FBI vetting would involve running peoples' names through databases and watchlists maintained by the bureau to see whether anything alarming comes up.​
The Army and the Justice Department are investigating members for involvement, as well, and U.S. Capitol Police announced last week that they had suspended "several" of their own and will investigate at least 10 officers.​

Probably going on reports that far right wing groups have been encouraging young members to join the military for the sole purpose of acquiring military training that they can bring back to their militia groups but that has being going on for years. The Oath Keepers are primarily made up of retired/active military and police personnel.

Guess “Defund the Police” was a bad idea? Eh?

Every single one of those people has already had an extensive background check. Why waste more money finding out information we already know?
They have also taken an oath to be loyal to the commander in chief. It is an illegitimate leader who fears the people who protect him.
They don't protect him. That's not their job...

Defund the Police was a metaphor for requested budgets be contingent on revised training methods. More emphasis on community outreach and less on 'warrior' training.

I imagine they're looking for information they may have missed initially or information that may have developed more recently or in the least since they were last background checked.

I agree, but since the first gulf war, the NG has been used in place of the military and whether you or I like it or not, these guys have been ordered to provide defense of the capitol and they are doing as they are told. I believe it is going to be a bust. There will be no demonstrations. It will show this illegitimate usurper as the incompetent coward that he is. Kameltoe will use it to 25 him.

Soon the Democrats will kick all Trump supporters out of the military and then require that all remaining members pledge loyalty to China-Joe!

You're bit behind the times with your post.
The important question is why should a president fear the military?
I mean seriously,you dont see a problem with this?

So did the metaphor burn down the police station in Minneapolis? Powerful metaphor.

If a president fears his own military that should bring questions too your mind.
Of course you being a liberal the questions wont be the right ones.
