Biden has no current authority. Is this the mayor's doing? Are these president Trump's orders?
Someone is making this call. I'd really like to know who?
Doesn't it bother you that we don't know who's actually giving these orders?
Same here, but no one is taking ownership.
The request came from federal authorities and was approved by Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy – who oversees D.C. Guard deployments since the District is not a state – indicating it was not a request from the local government.
