Pelosi Caught Red-Handed on Video

( – In a crystal-clear admission, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been caught red-handed openly acknowledging her role in the security failures at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Watch the video below.

The footage released by House Republicans was captured for an HBO documentary by Pelosi’s daughter Alexandra.

It reveals Pelosi’s frustration with the absence of National Guard troops as rioters invaded the Capitol.

In the video, 84-year-old Pelosi is seen discussing the chaotic situation with her chief of staff Terri McCullough and expressing dismay over the lack of preparedness.

“We have responsibility, Terry,” Pelosi states in the footage. “We did not have any accountability for what was going on there, and we should have. This is ridiculous.”

During the crisis, Pelosi questioned the timing of a suggestion to call the National Guard.

“You’re gonna ask me in the middle of the thing, when they’ve already breached the inaugural stuff, ‘should we call the Capitol Police?’ I mean the National Guard. Why weren’t the National Guard there to begin with?” she remarked.

McCullough’s reply that officials believed they had sufficient resources did not appease Pelosi.

“It’s not a question of how they had … they don’t know! They clearly didn’t know, and I take responsibility for not having them just prepare for more,” Pelosi declared, accepting fault for the oversight.

This 45-minute segment of the footage was recently provided to the GOP-led House Administration oversight subcommittee.

A 2022 report by House Republicans suggested that Democratic leaders were concerned about the “optics” of having National Guard troops at the Capitol following the Black Lives Matter protests of summer 2020.

In the aftermath of the riot, the House and Senate Sergeant at Arms and the Capitol Police chief resigned from their positions.

Pelosi’s spokesperson criticized House Republicans’ release of the video and accused them of trying to “whitewash” the events of January 6.

“Numerous independent fact-checkers have confirmed that Speaker Pelosi did not plan her own assassination,” Aaron Bennett stated on X.

He condemned the release of the video, saying, “Three years later, House Republicans are still trying to whitewash January 6th. It’s shameful, unpatriotic & pathetic.”
