"Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, a Republican, is demanding that the state’s Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon offer a public explanation as to why he told the National Guard which he had previously mobilized to stand down in Ferguson, Missouri, on Monday night as the city burned in riots...." (See "EXCLUSIVE–MO LT. GOV: OFFICIALS MUST EXPLAIN 'UNDER OATH' WHY NATIONAL GUARD STOOD BY AS FERGUSON BURNED" by Matthew Boyle, 11/25/14, Breitbart News [http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/11/25/Exclusive-Missouri-s-Peter-Kinder-To-Jay-Nixon-On-National-Guard-Stand-Down-Order-Explain-Yourself-Governor]). Soon after the events in Ferguson showed that there was a non-presence of police and National Guardsmen in many areas, Rush Limbaugh and the rest of right wing media were all over the story of Washington pulling the strings to allow the riots to proceed and the rioters to run rampant for hours (See for example "DID OBAMA HALT NATIONAL GUARD IN FERGUSON? -- Rush Limbaugh: 'Somebody wanted this to happen' " by Joe Kovacs, 11/26/14, World Net Daily [http://www.wnd.com/2014/11/limbaugh-did-obama-halt-national-guard-in-ferguson/]).
According to reports, on Tuesday morning, Kinder told anchor Martha MacCallum of Fox News that the Missouri Governor, Jay Nixon, kept the National Guard in check as Ferguson burned at the hands of rioters. Then Kinder questioned whether Governor Nxon did so in coordination with top officials from the Obama White House and /or the Holder Justice Department.
According to Breitbart News, "[a]t a Tuesday press conference in response to a question from Breitbart News’ Kerry Picket, Nixon said that Kinder’s questions were 'false and absurd' and that 'politics has nothing to do with what anyone up here is doing.'..."
When the Lieutenant Governor was asked why he suspects it was the Obama administration that told Governor Nixon to have the National Guard stand down, he said: “there’s nothing else that explains this.” He ten called for hearing to question Governor Nixon and other officials under oath about all of it.

Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz confirmed that “Valerie [Jarrett] spoke to Governor Nixon both last night and this morning, and has been briefing the President on an ongoing basis since last night.... And in each of those conversations with Governor Nixon, Valerie has pledged to stay in close coordination with the Governor in making sure that he’s getting the support he needs from the federal government....” ( See "CONFIRMED: VALERIE JARRETT KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH GOV.
