Nancy Pelosi Implicated In House GOP Report Over J6 Security Failures

A House Republican committee released its own Jan. 6th report on Wednesday.

In their assessment, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi bears at least some responsibility for the failed police response to the Jan. 6th riot.

The reason, the Speaker of the House was heavily involved in drafting the security plan for the Capitol building.

“The Speaker of the House and Democrat leadership were closely involved in security decisions in the lead up to and on January 6, 2021,” the report bluntly states.

Documents and texts reviewed by congressional Republicans demonstrate how then-House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving had “carried out his duties in clear deference to the Speaker, her staff, and other Democratic staff.”

“Speaker Pelosi exercised her authority with respect to the safety and security of the House of Representatives when she directed the use of magnetometers outside the House chamber in the name of safety. She announced the use of punitive fines for Members who refused to go through the metal detectors. Similarly, she required masks in the House chamber and around the House Office Buildings,” the report points out.

“The Speaker also exerted influence on security protocols at the Capitol related to the perimeter fence. Following January 6, 2021, the fence was quickly erected and remained up until July of that year when Congressional leaders started getting pressure to take it down. She also oversaw the fencing that was erected for a purported rally on September 18, 2021, that never materialized, and the State of the Union in March 2022.”

These findings contradict Pelosi’s claim, made in February of 2021, that she had “no power” over how the Capitol Police functions.

“Irving — who served on the Capitol Police Board by virtue of his position — succumbed to political pressures from the Office of Speaker Pelosi and House Democrat leadership leading up to January 6, 2021. He coordinated closely with the Speaker and her staff and left Republicans out of important discussions related to security,” the report notes.

The important decisions were left to Pelosi and her crew who were apparently focusing, prior to the Jan. 6th riot, on optics.

“Concerns about the optics of military personnel close to the Capitol were shared by Democratic staff in the House of Representatives,” the report notes.

“USCP officers expressed various concerns related to the use of force at the Capitol, including ‘a concern with optics by leadership’ and ‘several respondents stated that the concern with optics was related to leadership’s perception of the desires of Members of Congress,’” the report reads, quoting from another report.

A number of officers were reportedly deployed on Jan. 6th without their standard equipment.

Why? Because of optics.

When one officer was caught wearing his helmet and wielding a baton, he was actually chastised for it and ordered to remove both because it wasn’t “the image we want to portray,” as said by the officer’s commanding captain.

“The documents and communications show concerns about the public perception of military personnel at the Capitol and how the use of force by officers against violent protestors were well known among Irving, Democratic leadership, and USCP leadership,” the GOP report reads.

“Those concerns diminished the capacity of USCP officers to effectively defend the Capitol and prevented the D.C. National Guard from responding to the violence at the Capitol on January 6, 2021,” it continues.
