A little-known bill was passed before the Republicans took control of the House that proves that Democrats were well aware of the instrumental part that Nancy Pelosi played that led to the riot at the Capitol on January 6th. That bill removes security from the Speaker of the House and turns it over to the Capitol Police. If Pelosi had done her job there would never have been a riot and four Trump supporters would not have been killed.
The January 6th Committee did not investigate Pelosi’s role, which should come as no surprise since Democrats always interfere with the prosecutions of fellow Democrats. Pelosi was more responsible for the marauding mob at the Capitol that day than anything President Trump did. On December 12, senators unanimously passed a measure to remove authority from the Speaker to the Capitol Police. There were 500 pages of threats of violence expected on January 6th, and Pelosi did nothing to shore up security. In fact, her staff reduced the security detail.
Pelosi’s staff were in control of the security decisions as Pelosi aided her daughter in setting up to film the protest.
From early December 2020, Pelosi’s aides attended regular meetings with Irving and Sund to discuss the security plan. So hands-on was Pelosi’s chief of staff Terri McCullough that, at one point, she was editing details of parking, event timing, and “language regarding official business visitors” for the Joint Session.
The New York Post reported that the GOP investigation showed that:
“House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving, who answered to Pelosi as one of three voting members of the Capitol Police Board, ‘succumbed to political pressures from the Office of Speaker Pelosi and House Democrat leadership,’ was compromised by politics and did not adequately prepare for violence at the Capitol.”
The Pelosi team’s messages and posts were exposed in an investigative report by the same House Republicans Pelosi removed from the J6 Committee. The messages show how Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund begged Pelosi and the Sergeant at Arms to plus-up security. His request for help was only satisfied after the riot fizzled out.

The House and Senate sergeant at arms and Capitol Police Chief Sund resigned their jobs after the disaster, which could have been prevented.
But in a move the same week, the Democrat-run Senate tacitly affirmed that Nancy Pelosi royally screwed up by failing to take Trump up on his offer of using the Guard and preventing what the J6 Cassandras said was worse than the Civil War or the 9/11 attacks. How incredibly insulting.
Of course, after the unrest, neither woman was held accountable for failing to act. And the aftermath of the breach was more politicized than anything we’ve seen since the FBI and Hillary Clinton worked with actual Russian spies to create a fiction that Trump was a Russian secret agent.
Efforts to smear the outspoken Trump lived on in the outrageously one-sided January 6 Committee proceedings and continue to this day.
After kicking off Republicans from the January 6 Committee, unprecedented in the history of our country, Pelosi also struck a deal with her hand-selected gaslighters to not be a subject of the probe. Her fingerprints were to be wiped from the proceedings.
