Federal law enforcement officials have also been wary of increased surveillance of military and law enforcement checkpoints and other positions after National Guard troops reported people taking pictures and recording them, said the officials, who spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity to discuss ongoing security matters.

 

The Secret Service issued a bulletin over the weekend about what it sees as an “uptick” in National Guard troops posting pictures and details of their operations online.

 

The Associated Press obtained the “all concerned” message sent to all National Guard troops coming to Washington. Without getting into specific postings, the bulletin read: “No service members should be posting locations, pictures or descriptions online regarding current operations or the sensitive sites they are protecting” and urged them to stop immediately.

 

Asked about the bulletin, a spokesperson for the Secret Service issued a statement saying it “does not comment on matters of protective intelligence.”

 

Contacted by the AP Tuesday morning, the National Guard Bureau referred questions to the U.S. Secret Service and said: “Due to operational security, we do not discuss the process nor the outcome of the vetting process for military members supporting the inauguration.”

To tell a lie, and to tell it so convincingly that others believe you, is one thing.  But, when your lies lead people to ransack federal property and place innocent people in jeopardy, regardless of your exact words or intentions, you stop being just a liar, and start being a clear and present danger to everyone around you.  And it is NOT the first time Trump's words have led others to commit desperate acts with the assumption that they had his implied approval either.  Just ask the individuals who attempted to abduct Gretchen Whitmer.

 

Trump's legal team will argue that he never explicitly told the crowd at the "Stop the Steal" rally to commit acts of terror at the U.S. Capitol, but if "prior bad acts" mean anything at impeachment trials, then Trump's record of volatile and dangerous statements, and the results they produced among his most extremist supporters, must be brought before the Senate as well.  Twitter and other social media platforms have banned Trump, not because he's an inveterate liar and they dislike him, but because his lies have literally gotten people killed.
