I think I missed something in the J6 hearings

There were no calls (or any communication as far as we know) from TFG to the military, Homeland Security, National Guard or any other department/force in an effort to repel the riot. There was communication between Pence and at least Gen. Milley.

When did the latter communication occur?
Did Pence call anyone else?
Did Pence issue an order (did he have the authority?) that mobilized them?


What’s astounding is that Pence knew he couldn’t call TFG.

One question I have about the Secret Service deletion debacle

Did anyone follow the law and the directive to preserve data?

Per their website:

“The Secret Service employs approximately 3,200 special agents, 1,300 Uniformed Division officers, and more than 2,000 other technical, professional and administrative support personnel.”

If it can be demonstrated that the deletion detail was the presidential security detail, it would be pretty damaging to any claim of simple incompetence.
