The national media has learned that the DHS and the Pentagon previously told the National Guard of Mishigamaa to arrest the Governor of Misghigamaa. DHS and the Pentagon attempted to convince the National Guard that the Governor was unstable and not fit to govern.
The National Guard subsequently determined that such orders were both illegal and immoral. They consequently refused to comply with such order.
It is unclear at this time whether the order was due to the fact that the Mishigamaa Governor is currently running for president and does not appear to be favored by the White House.
This leads to the question of whether the White House has taken advantage of the crisis to further its own political agenda over the well being of American citizens.
