The liberal media hasn’t been able to stop talking about what happened in Washington, D.C. on January 6.

On this day, thousands of Trump supporters gathered to protest and many breached the Capitol building and vandalized areas, taking selfies and causing trouble.

Trump supporter Ashli Babbit was shot dead by a police officer, another Trump supporter was trampled by the crowd and a third died of a heart attack.

Capitol police office Brian Sicknick died of still undetermined causes, although the media initially claimed it was due to being hit on the head with a fire extinguisher. Now police believe it may have been because he ingested a lot of strong bear spray that was shot at him by a Trump supporter.

In any case, according to the liberal press this incident on Jan. 6 was the worst insurrection and horrible event of all time.

They ignore the fact that numerous Trump supporters die, of course, but talk constantly about how Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was scared or how the precious “norms” of democracy were threatened.

Now President Trump is opening up about what happened.

What he said in a recent interview could change everything and flip the whole narrative.

Trump Says He Asked for a Troop Presence on Jan. 6

Speaking to Steve Hilton of Fox News following his epic speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Trump opened up about what really happened on January 6.

The most shocking thing is that Trump said he knew that more protection was needed and requested 10,000 National Guard troops so that no dangerous disorder would happen.

According to Trump, his administration told the Department of Defense that they expected a big crowd of supporters and warned them that due to the tense atmosphere DoD should prepare 10,000 troops for deployment.

This notice from Trump’s team went to Congress, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, but Trump said his understanding is that “Capitol leaders” like Pelosi turned it down because they didn’t like the idea of thousands of troops outside the Capitol.

Seriously?

There’s now a permanent troop presence around the Capitol that looks like something out of George Orwell’s 1984 but Congress was worried how troops would look? Something doesn’t smell right at all here.

“So, you know, that was a big mistake,” Trump told Hilton.

Talk about the understatement of the year.

What Actually Happened?

According to Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows, the President gave a direct order for the 10,000 troops, although this hasn’t been independently verified, but a memo from then-Sec Def Christopher Miller appears to back it up.

What does this mean if Trump ordered the troops to show up and someone blocked it?

It would be a disaster and show up the current Democrat investigation as a total joke, since part of the issue they’re trying to investigate is why there wasn’t more protection on that day.

Nonetheless, even though he says he hated to see what happened on Jan. 6, it’s also clear that Trump has a fairly positive view of it and has called it a “lovefest,” so it’s not clear he’s doing more than just trying to cover for himself.

“That rally was massive. I mean, the press doesn’t like to talk about it, but the real number was much, much bigger in terms of the people that were at the location. It went all the way back practically to the Washington Monument. Not the Capitol, I’m talking about the rally itself,” Trump said.

At this point very difficult questions have to be asked:

Were the Democrats trying to keep security low and entrap Trump supporters in order to get an even tighter grip on power? Was this all a set up?
