I think the Mayor gets partial blame for not planning ahead, despite the warnings. The overlapping structures that they have in DC definitely didn't help either, there was crap coordination once things went south so the DC National Guard get partial blame as well.

There is a big difference between a Governor - or in the case of Washington DC, the Mayor - calling in the State National Guard

vs

the 10th Mountain Division getting spooled up to go quell a city via the Joint Chiefs.

I think I've effectively beat this horse into the ground.
all you have done is sidestepped. The military knew as well as the intelligence community(safely assume). A better analysis:

The 139 representatives and eight senators who voted to reject the results of a democratic election, were certainly well mannered—speakers wore formal clothes such as ties and suits rather than the outlandish outfits of the mob. The legislators adhered to time limits rather than putting their feet on desks while hamming it up for photos. But this veneer of respectability makes what happened on the floor more dangerous, by making it harder to recognize as a violation of democracy.

The legislators were there to count the votes certified by the states—after months of review by election officials, and after endless court challenges were rebuffed—and, instead, they voted to throw them out. They did this after months of lying to the public, saying that the election had been stolen. They crossed every line a democracy should hold dear. To my knowledge, not one of them has yet apologized or recanted for their participation in what even some Republican senators are openly calling the “big lie.”

Some, like Senator Ted Cruz, have tried to cover up their attempt to overturn the election by saying that their constituents (and indeed tens of millions of Americans) believe that the election was stolen, and that they were merely honoring their beliefs. However, it was they, along with the president, who convinced those millions of people that the election was stolen in the first place, and that Joe Biden was not the legitimate president-elect. Convincing people of outright lies does not excuse attempts to pander to those lies later; if anything, it makes the whole act more damning for those who carry it out.

with the exception of the swimming horse who won the gold medal, didn’t these people take an oath to uphold the constitution?
