The DC National Guard deployed a Immediate Response Force( IRF) composed of National Guard soldiers and airmen to the Capitol complex this afternoon to support the U.S. Capitol Police.

Currently, approximately 2,300 National Guard members are in DC supporting local, state, and federal authorities in DC.
The [National] Guard is 90 some-odd percent male,and only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden, you've got to figure that in the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative… they'reprobably not more than 25 percentof the people there protecting us that voted for Biden.
