      President Trump on Monday declared an emergency in Washington, D.C. and ordered federal assistance to supplement efforts to prepare for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration later this month.

      The move came after D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) over the weekend asked Trump to issue an emergency declaration amid concerns about potential threats to the inauguration on Jan. 20 after a mob of Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol in a deadly and violent attack last week.

      House Democrats earlier Monday formally introduced an article of impeachment charging Trump with inciting the Capitol riots last Wednesday.

      “Specifically, FEMA is authorized to identify, mobilize, and provide at its discretion, equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency,” the declaration released by the White House Monday evening states. “Emergency protective measures, limited to direct Federal assistance, will be provided at 100 percent Federal funding.”

      Not only is he abandoning you, he is sicking the troops on you.  Have fun at your next insurrection, it may get wilder!  And if you have any left over after you pay your bail, don’t forget to send money to the Trump Defense Fund.

      Probably some Nazis in there too. If I were Biden, I’d be very careful about who to trust.

      This looks to be more about providing federal funding and not security personnel. But even fund administrators can throw a monkey wrench into the works.
