Pentagon reviewing inaugural security detail to make sure none are terrorist sympathizers

Rep. Jason Crow, a Democrat of Colorado and a former Army Ranger, said he spoke with Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy on Sunday and was told that “at least 25 domestic terrorism cases have been opened as a result of the assault on the Capitol.”

A Defense official who was informed about the call initially confirmed that the cases involved troops but later corrected that statement. The official said some troops – active and reserve duty – may have been involved in the riot, and the military will investigate them as necessary…

The Pentagon also has been asked to review all members who will be a part of the security detail for the Jan. 20 inauguration to ensure the are “not sympathetic to domestic terrorists,” Crow said.
