Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, in a letter to Defense Sec. Lloyd Austin and Gen. Daniel Hokanson, the chief of the National Guard Bureau, alleged a “dangerous and troubling trend” of National Guard troops being used to “harass members of Congress and their staff.” Greene specifically accused San Nicolas of using more than two dozen National Guard troops to “ambush my office unannounced” and “subsequently video record my staff without solicitation or defense.”
The Military Times reports:
In a statement Tuesday, Maj. Gen. Esther J.C. Aguigui, adjutant general of the Guam National Guard, said the force remains a “non-partisan entity” despite the event. “We appreciate Congressman San Nicolas’ efforts to represent our culture of Inafa’ Maolek, or bringing harmony, practiced here in Guam,” she said. “We also thank Congresswoman Greene for ultimately helping raise awareness of Guamanians as citizens of the United States, and our rich tradition of service and sacrifice to our nation.”

It’s time for our great men and women of the National Guard to go home and be with their families.
The Democrats need to stop using them as political theatre and drama on Capitol Hill.
Shame on Democrats for disrespecting our military.
