National Guard troops were allowed to return to the US Capitol building late on January 21, after members were removed from the building to a nearby parking garage, according to CBS News.
This footage shows US Rep. Madison Cawthorn delivering pizza to troops in a parking garage at the Thurgood Marshall Judicial Center.
Cawthorn condemned the move to place troops there, and said they had been “abandoned and insulted by our leaders.”
CBS reported that one unit was forced to vacate the Dirksen Senate Office building to the garage. “As Congress is in session and increased foot traffic and business is being conducted, Capitol Police asked the troops to move their rest area,” National Guard Bureau spokesman Major Matt Murphy told CBS. “They were temporarily relocated to the Thurgood Marshall Judicial Center garage with heat and restroom facilities.” Credit: Rep.
