Ordered by Obama: D.C. National Guard head to be removed just seconds after Trump’s transition
Is Obama setting the stage for disaster on Inauguration Day? Riots? Anarchists?
WASHINGTON D.C. (INTELLIHUB) — President Obama has ordered U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz to be removed from his post as Head of the D.C. National Guard, against standard protocol, effective as of Jan. 20, 12:01 p.m., just 60 seconds after Donald Trump takes the helm at the Presidential Inauguration Ceremony.
The uncanny maneuver is designated to be classified as a “national special security event” which comes with suspicious timing, considering that Schwartz was an integral part of planning the National Guard’s event operations for the past few months, which will include thousands of guardsman currently under Schwartz’ command.
In a Friday morning interview, Schwartz said, “The timing is extremely unusual. During the Inauguration Schwartz was set to “command not only the members of the D.C. guard but also an additional 5,000 unarmed troops sent in from across the country to help. He also would oversee military air support protecting the nation’s capital during the inauguration,” as reported by the Washington Post.
Schwartz said that he would have never planned “to leave a mission in the middle of a battle” and regrets that he will not be able to welcome his troops “back to the armory.”https://www.intellihub.com/d-c-national-guard-head-to-be-removed-seconds-after-trumps-transition/
