Democrats don’t have any evidence to support their wild conspiracy theory.
But that isn’t stopping their reckless statements.
Nancy Pelosi made a shocking criminal accusation against her Republican colleagues.
The vast majority of Americans condemn the violence of the Capitol riot and do not support political violence in any way, shape or manner.
This could be a moment where all Americans, regardless of party come together in unity but the Democrats won’t let that happen.
Four Freshmen Texas Republican Congressmen, Reps. Troy Nehls, Pat Fallon, Tony Gonzales, and Ronny Jackson, all with military backgrounds, stood alongside the short-handed Capitol Police to defend the House Chamber.
This goes against the narrative that the Democrats are trying to build to attack Republicans and take greater control of the government.
They want to blame every Republican, no matter what their views or their actions are, for the rioters who broke the laws.
New Jersey Democrat Rep. Mikie Sherrill and others claimed “Republican Congressional colleagues led people through the United States Capitol last Tuesday on what appeared to be a ‘reconnaissance’ mission ahead of Wednesday’s attack.”
“I also intend to see that those members of Congress who abetted him, those members of Congress who had groups coming through the Capitol that I saw on Jan. 5 for reconnaissance for the next day,” Sherrill said in a Facebook Live event. “Those members of Congress who incited the violent crowd. Those members of Congress that attempted to help our president undermine our democracy, I’m going to see that they’re held accountable.”
So far, no evidence to back up these claims has been given.
Four members of the Democrat leadership say they are going to investigate what failures led to the breach of the Capitol, including whether there was inside help.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), House Oversight Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), and House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) are launching a joint investigation.
“They’re also asking specific questions, including on the evidence each intelligence agency gathered ahead of Jan. 6 and what they did with it; if there was evidence of any foreign efforts to either assist the insurrection, spread misinformation about it or exploit the aftermath; if any current or former officials with security clearances participated in the insurrection; and what policy responses the intelligence agencies have implemented to apprehend rioters and disrupt potential future actions,” Politico reported.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said on Friday that lawmakers who are found to have helped rioters will face criminal charges.
“We must trust each other, respect the people who sent us here. We must also have the truth, and that will be looked into,” she said. “If, in fact, it is found that members of Congress were accomplices to this insurrection — if they aided and abetted the crime — there may have to be actions taken beyond the Congress, in terms of prosecution for that,” she told the media, referring specifically to Sherrill’s allegations.
