Nancy Pelosi is being named in a new report by Republican investigators which shows she is very much to blame for the security breakdown that led to the January 6th Capitol riot.
Via The Federalist:
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi shoulders much of the blame for the security breakdown at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, a preliminary report from Republican investigators Reps. Jim Banks and Rodney Davis determined.
The Capitol Police (USCP) were half-staffed on Jan. 6, Pelosi’s House Sergeant at Arms denied multiple requests for National Guard assistance from the Pentagon and the USCP Chief in the days leading up to Jan. 6, officers were poorly equipped and had insufficient riot shields and helmets, and they were never trained to handle a riot even after the riots of 2020, the investigation shows, according to Banks.
Despite the J6 Committee’s attempts to blame the Capitol riot on former President Donald Trump and election integrity supporters, the GOP members found that Pelosi, who is responsible for Capitol security according to House rules and has led the Democrat majority for years, repeatedly failed to implement necessary improvements to the Capitol’s security system.
“This inaction left the Capitol unnecessarily vulnerable,” Banks and Davis noted.
Banks and Davis pointed to an After-Action Report from Capitol Police showing that the law enforcement department reorganized its intelligence without authorization which left it without essential “open-source intelligence capabilities” and caused staffing changes that “may have contributed to the tragedy” on Jan. 6.
In light of this information, Banks and Davis added that “the USCP intelligence unit had knowledge of the potential for violence yet failed to adequately communicate the threat or take the necessary steps to protect the Capitol.”
Despite these shortcomings, the Republicans found that even though the USCP Union largely voted it had no confidence in its intelligence division supervisor, the supervisor was promoted to acting chief following the Capitol riot.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy picked Banks and Rep. Jim Jordan to represent Republicans on the committee last year but they were promptly booted off by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi who implied the GOP would hamper a “comprehensive investigation” into the Capitol riot.
Now Banks, Jordan, Davis, and the two other Republicans who were poised to join the Democrats’ show trial committee before McCarthy pulled them out, are leading their own investigation into the Capitol security breakdown that reviews information hardly touched by Pelosi’s picks who are running the show trial.
I’m sure the garbage media will ignore this because it isn’t coming from the official January 6th committee, but we’ve been hearing about this since the Capitol riot happened.
It was reported early on that Trump wanted to send thousands of National Guard members to the Capitol and that Pelosi turned him down, since she’s the one in charge of security on the Capitol. Now we know it was her own House Sergeant at Arms who denied these requests from both the Pentagon and the Capitol police chief.
It’s just another reason you can’t take seriously anything coming out of the January 6th committee.
I’ll leave you with this from yesterday:
