Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., may have to stand and answer some serious questions if House Republicans get their way. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Troy Nehls, R-Texas, have hinted recently that the California lawmaker needs to be held accountable for her actions on Jan. 6, 2021.
According to a report from the Conservative Brief, Rep. Jordan brought up Pelosi’s role in failing to secure the U.S. Capitol before the “insurrection” took place in 2021 following a report released to GOP members that took aim at Pelosi’s shortcomings.
Per the Conservative Brief, Jordan stated:
“The reason there wasn’t a proper security presence on that day goes right to the speaker’s staff and the speaker’s office. As you go back and look at the communications, there’s this pattern that develops where the Sergeant of Arms is meeting with Pelosi’s staff. Many of those meetings, Republican staff wasn’t allowed to be there, but they had this pattern where everything had to run through her office, her staff, before the Sergeant of Arms could make a decision.”
Pelosi left her position as Speaker of the House in January, returning to her home state of California as a representative and giving up the gavel to newly elected Republican Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy (Calif).
As reported by RSBN, President Trump has long accused Pelosi of turning down National Guard troops at the U.S. Capitol Building in 2021, via his recommendation as president of the United States.
He wrote on Truth Social, “Why aren’t the Unselects asking Nancy Pelosi and the Mayor of D.C. to testify as to why they turned down my recommendation on January 3rd of 10,000 to 20,000 troops to stand guard at the Capitol Building on January 6th. Had they followed this recommendation, there would have been no problem on January 6th! They must testify!”
