The lie, which I saw in a thread here a couple of days ago, was debunked today by the independent fact-checking website Politifact. (It's not a hoax if usmb conservatives didn't amplify it).
The National Guard told PolitiFact that members of Congress had no knowledge of the relocations. Many offered their personal offices and conference rooms to the troops after they were alerted to the situation.

Who told them to go there? Who is responsible and who has been relieved of duty?

Yes, it was another attack on the truth so Trumpet's could score some points. That is all these guys do is lie and misinform, exactly what they accused everyone else was doing for the last four years...

They were told to go there for break.

Interesting information and yet there remains conflicting reports.


There are conflicting reports

In a statement to Politico, Capitol Police spokesperson Eva Malecki said the department recently asked that troops’ shifts be reduced from 12 hours to eight. This was meant to allow for additional rest hours away from the Capitol complex.
Politico and other outlets, including the Washington Post, reported Jan. 21 that the National Guard said the instruction to relocate came from the Capitol Police.
But in another statement released the morning of Jan. 22, Acting Capitol Police Chief Yogananda Pittman said that with the exception of specific times on Inauguration Day, Capitol Police "did not instruct the National Guard to vacate the Capitol Building facilities."
"The Department is also working with the Guard to reduce the need for sleeping accommodations by establishing shorter shifts," Pittman said, "and will ensure they have access to the comfortable accommodations they absolutely deserve when the need arises."
PolitiFact reached out to the Capitol Police for more information, but we did not hear back.


Looks like PolitiFact might have jumped the gun on this one, like the Dems have with impeachment.

So no one wants to take responsibility, sounds vaguely similar to something one would expect from Congress. The guard claims it was the DC police, so who do you suppose had the authority to direct them? Who would have authority to authorize the DC police commander to instruct the guard? Is it the Mayor, Nancy, Trump, China Joe, or Chucky?

The whole idea of bringing the national guard in large numbers when no reasonable person thought that there was a plot against Sleepy Joe's big day was from the Left.

Why did they demand the guard go to Washington, if they didn't have hotel rooms to put them up in?

That's why we need a peaceful transition of power. The previous administration is in charge of security for the inauguration of the next administration.

It was the capitol police under the direction of crazy black lady Mayor bow wow a democrat.
The mayor is in charge of the DC metro PD, not the Capitol Police.
Just from the name "capitol police" you should realize who is in charge of it. And it ain't the Mayor.

The United States Capitol Police (USCP) is overseen by the Capitol Police Board and has Congressional oversight by appropriations and authorizing committees from the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate.


The Chief of Police is responsible for administering the Department in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, and ensuring that organizational objectives are met. The Chief reports directly to the Capitol Police Board and is assisted in the management of the Department by the Assistant Chiefs of Police and the Chief Administrative Officer. These leaders collectively are recognized as the United States Capitol Police Executive Team, the highest-level management team within the Department.
