New Footage Shows Pelosi Admit Responsibility For Not Having National Guard At Capitol

House Republicans have been provided with previously unaired footage that reveals the then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi admitting responsibility for not having the National Guard protect the Capitol building ahead of the January 6 protests in 2021.

Politico noted that the footage was “was shown in a video shot by the former speaker’s daughter, documentarian Alexandra Pelosi, and recently provided to congressional investigators by HBO”.

The footage was never aired and did Alexandra Pelosi did not provide it to the January 6 Committee when it was supposedly investigating the Capitol riot.

Breitbart reports: The January 6 Committee also never subpoenaed Speaker Pelosi or her daughter for documents about the riot.

The video substantiates claims by former President Donald Trump that Pelosi was responsible for failing to prepare sufficient security ahead of the protest. Trump offered the National Guard in the days before the “Stop the Steal” rally 6, but was refused. (Trump was later faulted by critics for not intervening quickly to send the Guard during the riot.)

In the video, Pelosi is shown lamenting: “We have responsibility … we did not have any accountability for what was going on there. And we should have. … Why weren’t the National Guard there to begin with?”

She continues: “I take responsibility for not having them [the National Guard] just prepare for war.”

Pelosi later rejected Republican nominees for the minority positions on the January 6 Committee — the first time in congressional history that the leader of the majority party had done so — and instead hand-picked two anti-Trump Republicans. The result was a completely one-sided investigation that declined to question Pelosi’s role in events.
