(AbsoluteNews.com) – Washington, DC has looked like a war zone since the January 6 Capitol Hill incident. Shortly after, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) asked a partisan retired general to review the Capitol’s security. His recommendations are very concerning — and expensive.
According to CNN on February 26, Lt. Gen. Russel Honore has allegedly written a draft proposal to upgrade the Capitol security. The review reportedly calls for 1,000 additional Capitol Police officers, and more barriers, all for an expected cost of $100 million. Sources said the retired general also recommended a quick reaction force with National Guard members who will stay in DC full time.
On February 23, the head of the Capitol Police called previous comments Honore has made about the officers on the Hill “disrespectful.”

Using taxpayer money to keep the people away from their Capitol building is absurd. Allowing a partisan retired general to make those decisions is even more outrageous. The police officers who work there day in and day out are the ones who should make those decisions, not someone handpicked by Pelosi.
