It sure is starting to look, smell, and sound like a coup eh? Reconnaissance tours, disarming panic buttons, purposefully lax security, denying requests for assistance and backup.

Not only is this terrifying, but this also explains why the National Guard is literally sleeping in the Capitol. Although there was clearly a portion of the mob who showed up for a rally and accidently got themselves caught up in an insurrection, it is becoming clear that all of that may have just been cover for an actual planned and coordinated coup attempt.
