The most underreported story of January 6th was the fact that there was a stunning lack of security at the Capitol.
Hundreds of thousands of Trump supporters descended on DC to attend the Jan 6th rally.
Yet the Capitol was lightly guarded.
During an interview with John Solomon, Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows said that while Trump requested 10,000 National Guard members be stationed at the Capitol, Pelosi asked about lunch.
President Trump asked for 10,000 National Guard
Pelosi asked the Pentagon about "lunch" on Jan. 6. She was really scared for our democracy, wasn't she?

Mark Meadows, former chief of staff to President Trump, said that during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) asked the Department of Defense what time Congress members could get their lunch.
Meadows told the John Solomon Reports podcast on Tuesday that while he wasn’t in the room at the time of the call, Pelosi contacted Department of Defense officials later on during the riot and “made an inquiry about what time, you know, our members could actually get their lunch.”
“I find it amazing that she was more interested in their culinary position than they are in anything else,” he added.
Trump “had asked for up to 10,000 National Guard troops to be available to Nancy Pelosi and to [Washington, D.C.] Mayor [Muriel] Bowser,” Meadows said. “And, unfortunately, they did not take him up on that. But he did put them on the ready, and that’s why they were able to respond as quickly as they did.”
Meadows explained that Trump had made the National Guard available two days before the Capitol riot because he knew a lot of people would attend the rally on Jan. 6 and remembered Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and others had been previously accosted leaving the Republican National Convention.
Pelosi should be questioned about this under oath.
