Last week it was reported that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for the first time in the history of the House of Representatives rejected members for a committee selected by the minority party’s leadership.
We now may know the reason why Pelosi rejected Representative Jim Banks (R-IN) from the January 6 Committee.
On Sunday, Banks made an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” and divulged what Democrats were hoping would remain a secret that Pelosi was fully responsible for the “breakdown of security” at the Capitol on January 6.
“Nancy Pelosi is not interested in an investigation. She’s only interested in a narrative,” Banks said.
“Once you go up to the top of the flagpole of who is in charge of the Capitol Police … Due to the rules of the United States Capitol, the power structure of the Capitol, Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, has more control and authority and responsibility over the leadership of the Capitol Police than anyone else in the United States Capitol,” he said on Sunday.
The House Sergeant at Arms reports directly to the Speaker of the House, Pelosi, and the Sergeant at Arms was the one who kept refusing the Trump administration’s repeated offers to bring National Guard troops in to protect the Capitol days prior to January 6.
The media mob has already gone out of its way to cover for Pelosi by saying that it’s a conspiracy theory to say that Pelosi rejected National Guard troops from coming in to protect the Capitol. Yet the former Capitol Police chief Steven Sund testified in February that his requests for National Guard troops were rejected two days prior to January 6.
Also, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows for the Trump administration said that the administration made multiple offers of National Guard troops to protect the Capitol and Pelosi turned it down every time. A point to make is if the Sergeant at Arms turned down the requests, it was Nancy Pelosi who was behind the rejections.
“So, she doesn’t want us to ask these questions because at the end of the day, she is ultimately responsible for the breakdown of security at the capitol that happened on January 6,” Banks said.
Martha MacCallum was the guest host on Sunday (and did a superior job to the Democrat sycophant who usually sits in that seat) and brought up the fact that Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY), who Pelosi picked for the committee, had defended Pelosi’s decision to remove Banks and Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH).
“Whether it’s Speaker Pelosi or Liz Cheney or anyone who sits on this committee, it’s clear that those are questions that we should be demanding answers to. Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want me on that committee, but she also doesn’t want us to ask those questions because it leads to a series of answers that don’t fit her narrative,” Banks said.
The answers would also possibly end her speakership if the truth got out. That’s what she is trying to avoid. People died that day and it’s looking more and more because Pelosi pulled a political stunt to harm Trump’s efforts to point out massive voter fraud in the key battleground states. Pelosi is playing high stakes politics, and she does not want to lose which makes her desperate to contain the truth of what happened on January 6 and it makes her dangerous.
Banks also replied to Pelosi’s message on the ABC show “This Week” hours before where the Speaker said she is considering appointing fellow Trump hater Representative Adam Kinzinger (barely R-IL) to the committee.
“It’s clear that Pelosi only wants members on this committee who will stick to her talking points and stick to her narrative,” he said.
Pelosi appeared on ABC’s “This Week” before she started drinking that day and told Clintonista host George Stephanopoulos that she intends to appoint more Republicans, other than the delusion Trump-hating, war-mongering RINO Liz Cheney, to her committee and she mentioned one by name.
“That would be my plan,” Pelosi said of adding more Republicans to the committee.
“When will that be announced?” Stephanopoulos inquired.
“Perhaps after I speak to Adam Kinzinger,” she said followed up by a Cheshire cat grin. “You could say that that’s the direction that I would be going on.”
You would be hard pressed to find a more anti-Trump Republican in the House than Liz Cheney, yet Pelosi did in Adam Kinzinger.
Rightfully so, House minority leader Kevin McCarthy pulled all Republicans from the phony January 6 committee calling what Pelosi did “an egregious abuse of power.”
We’ll see if Cheney and Kinzinger break ranks with the party leadership and sit on the committee, anyway.
