11) On January 22, 2021, US Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin wrote on his Facebook page, “I met with a contingent of the Wisconsin National Guard yesterday. I thanked them for their service and was happy to hear they all had hotel rooms during their deployment in DC. However, some of the treatment of the National Guard deployed during the inauguration – the questioning of their loyalty and being asked to leave the Capitol and sleep on garage floors – has been shameful. That treatment, together with the decision not to deploy during the January 6th joint session because of bad ‘optics,’ needs to be fully investigated and those responsible held accountable.
