A dozen National Guard members removed from Inauguration Day duties after security vetting

1 min read

Chief of the National Guard Bureau General Daniel Hokanson confirmed that 12 members of the US National Guard were removed from Inauguration Day duties after a vetting process.

Two were removed due to inappropriate comments, while 10 were removed due to questionable behavior identified in the vetting process, according to Hokanson.

The officials, a senior intelligence official and an Army official briefed on the matter, did not say which fringe group the Guard members belonged to or what unit they served in. The officials were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller said in a statement Monday that vetting of National Guard troops continues and that the Pentagon has found no intelligence so far that would indicate an insider threat.
