Skip to comments.Fact checking Rep. Jim Jordan's claim that Speaker Nancy Pelosi was responsible for Capitol security on January 6
Posted on 07/22/2021 6:56:29 AM PDT by where's_the_Outrage?
Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio suggested Wednesday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had been responsible for the security presence at the US Capitol on January 6, after Pelosi rejected his appointment to serve on the select committee investigating the insurrection.
"Why wasn't there a proper security presence at the Capitol that day," Jordan asked at a news conference after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy pulled all five members he had tapped for the committee in response to Pelosi rejecting two of them. The Ohio Republican added, "Only one person can answer that question. Only one. The Speaker of the United States House of Representatives."
Facts First: The Speaker of the House is not in charge of Capitol security. That's the responsibility of the Capitol Police Board, which oversees the US Capitol Police and approves requests for National Guard assistance.....
And according to testimony from the former Capitol Police chief, Pelosi was not involved in the decisions made ahead of January 6 regarding the National Guard. In his testimony before the Senate in February, former US Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund said that he approached both Sergeants at Arms on the House and Senate side on January 4 to request the National Guard through an Emergency Declaration from the Capitol Police Board.

the useless, ChInA-loving, ELECTION-fraud-IGNORING,
voter-backstabbing, POTUS-backstabbing GOP
should have gone after PELOSI before.
even the tearing up of the State of the Union Address
the GOP are scum. scum. they stole $$$$$ given
to Pres. Trump for THEMSELVES.
Responsibility for Capitol security shared
Capitol security is provided by the sergeants-at-arms , who are the chief law enforcement officers for the House and Senate, in coordination with the Capitol Police, a federal law enforcement agency.
The House sergeant-at-arms reports to the speaker of the House, or Pelosi at the time of the attack. The Senate sergeant-at-arms reports to the Senate majority leader; in the days leading up to and including Jan. 6, that was Kentucky Republican Mitch McConnell.
Security of the Capitol Complex is the direct responsibility of the four-member Capitol Police Board, which includes both sergeants-at-arms, said Jane Campbell, president and CEO of the United States Capitol Historical Society.
So Pelosi, through the House Sergeant at Arms, does bear responsibility for refusing additional security measures requested by the White House.
Everything WRONG with US politics right now is down to that cadaver, Nancy.
She is the one driving the Liberal agenda and pulling the strings!! If you don’t believe it, just ASK her... just listen to HER domineering speech and conduct.
It’ ALL about her...so, yes SHE’S responsible and HER fingerprints on on everything
I can hear Pelosi talking to the Capitol Police Chief. - “one freakin’ word, and you’ll be walking a beat in Anacostia”.
This sets up an evetual confrontation.
‘’Holmes is a man’’
Elementary my dear Watson.
“Hello, Chief. This is Nancy. I’m a little concerned about the planned demonstrations on the 6th. I suggest you beef up security”
So why didn't CNNs Tara and Holmes report that salient fact?
Did they not know, or am I asking a rhetorical question?
I believe they call it gaslighting
Another inconvenient salient fact: The official events scheduled for January 6th, 2021, (the opening and counting of Electoral votes) was taking place in the House of Representatives main chamber, making the House Sergeant-at-Arms the lead person in charge of security.
So is China Mitch
Pelosi is responsible for house security check
Pelosi knew 6 days in advance of event check
Pelosi refused to allow security check
The poster girl of failure then try to spin it on Trump democrat indeed.
You don’t suggest, you order.
Coming back from Pelosi, that would be taken as an order.
Prior to the rally President Trump offered Pelosi National Guard troops for security, so I heard (probably here, I don’t recall). She declined. My conclusion: She knew that the Antifa disruptors would stage the false flag attack. She belongs in prison!
