(AmericanProsperity.com) – Not all members of the National Guard are on the same page about what really happened in the US Capitol on January 6. Colonel Earl Matthews, a former Trump official, has accused the Pentagon’s Inspector General of publishing a report containing a veritable torrent of lies collected from top military brass.

Matthews claims Army officials lied when testifying to the House Oversight Committee about how the January 6 capitol protests unfolded. In a 36-page report, he blasted the Inspector General, claiming he failed to approach the matter objectively.
Matthews also pointed a finger at two specific witnesses, Gen. Charles Flynn and Lt. Gen. Walter Piatt. He called both “unmitigated liars” who sought to rewrite history by perjuring themselves on the stand.
Matthews’ former commanding officer, Major General William Walker, previously called for a retraction of the alleged faulty information contained within the Inspector General’s report. Walker served as the National Guard’s commanding general in D.C. during the incident, lending him an inside perspective.
Flynn and Piatt could find themselves in hot water if the Senate agrees to investigate these accusations. The fact that both Matthews and Walker had “boots on the ground,” so to speak, on January 6, does lend credence to their complaints. Still, a final verdict is not yet available; complaints are not convictions.
Will Americans ever learn the truth of what really happened on January 6th? Moreover, will Flynn and Piatt ultimately be required to revise their stories?
