As House Republicans get ready to be in the majority again, they, unlike their softer-spined and weaker-kneed RINO colleagues in the Senate, are preparing to start flexing that power a bit and using it to take on people like Nasty Nancy Pelosi.
With Nancy, at least, that means trying to turn the January 6th tables by noting her failures on the days leading up to that incident. Rep. Jim Jordan, who will become the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee come January, said as much when speaking to Just the News. In his words “The reason there wasn’t a proper security presence on that day goes right to the Speaker’s staff and the Speaker’s office.”
Similarly, Rep. Troy Nehls of Texas said that he had spoken to a National Guard Commander who told him that the day never would have happened had the National Guard been summoned to the Capitol, but it never was. Speaking on that and also placing the blame firmly in Pelosi’s lap, Rep. Nehls said:
“He said if his men would have been here, January 4, then January 6 would have never ever happened. As for Nancy Pelosi, you do have questions that that you need to answer.…Nancy, we’ll get you and we’ll fly you back from Italy once you’re the ambassador.”
Rep. Jordan connected the dots between Pelosi and the security failures, particularly the non-summoning of the National Guard. He said that the GOP had uncovered evidence that her office was communicating with the House Sergeant at Arms about what to expect and what preparations to make, which ended up meaning the National Guard was not summoned. In his words:
“As you go back and look at the communications, there’s this pattern that develops where the sergeant of arms was meeting with Pelosi’s staff. For many of those meetings, Republican staff wasn’t allowed to be there. But they had this pattern where everything had to be run through her office and her staff before the sergeant of arms can make a decision.”
That’s not all. In addition to Pelosi looking bad, the Republicans have already created a report that shows massive failures inside the US Capitol Police on January 6th, as the Epoch Times reported, saying:
In addition to the speaker and her staff, the Republicans’ report (pdf) also called out the USCP Intelligence and Interagency Coordination Division (IICD) for ignoring intelligence that indicated a need for heightened security due to politics, bureaucracy, and the “misplaced priorities of their leadership.”
“In fact, IICD’s leader—Julie Farnam—spent the weeks leading up to January 6, 2021 attempting to overhaul the division, including by reassigning expert intelligence analysts to new roles and creating new processes for synthesizing threat data,” the report notes, adding that key information and threats of violence were disregarded on Farnam’s orders.
Further, the report stated that USCP officers were ill-equipped and unprepared for the events of Jan. 6, holding that they were “set up to fail.”
