The United States military leadership, led by General Mark Milley, took a step forward after the violent incidents on Capitol Hill last Wednesday to condemn what happened in Washington and defend the Constitution. Through a statement ratify the figure of Joe Biden as future president after months of accusations of electoral fraud from the White House. The message is a call to order after an incident of “domestic terrorism” unprecedented in US history.

“We witnessed actions inside the capitol building that they were incompatible with the rule of law, “the statement said.” The rights of freedom of expression and assembly do not give anyone the right to resort to violence, sedition and insurrection. “

It is an extraordinary intervention in the process of impeachment against President Donald Trump for his speech last Wednesday and the subsequent riots that left five dead, including a Capitol police officer. Democrats have called on the vice president Mike Pence to act to remove Trump from the White House under threat of launching another impeachment trial, the second on the Republican president’s record.

“As we have done throughout our history, the US military will obey the legal orders of civilian leaders, It will support civil authorities to protect lives and property, guarantee public safety in accordance with the law, and remain fully committed to protecting and defending the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. “

In terms of safety, all eyes are now on the presidential inauguration on January 20, when Joe Biden will become the 46th president in US history. The preparations will begin tomorrow, January 13, and not on the 19th as planned.

After the resignation of the Secretary of Homeland Security, Chad Wolf, Peter Gaynor, the head of FEMA – Federal Emergency Management Agency, by its acronym in English – will be in charge of ensuring security in Washington as a temporary replacement for Wolf . The fear is that more violent acts will take place with the guaranteed presence of extreme right groups related to Trump. Some will arrive armed in the capital. At the moment, 15,000 members of the National Guard have been mobilized before what may happen.
