Republicans: ‘Pelosi Bears Responsibility’ for January 6 ‘Tragedy’
Republicans slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her January 6 “Crucifix Committee” on Monday as a “pre-written narrative” and that she “bears responsibility as Speaker of the House for the tragedy.”
“It’s clear at this point that Nancy Pelosi has cherry-picked the members to serve on this committee. She has pre-written a narrative. Only members who will stick to her talking points are allowed to serve on this committee,” Rep. Jim Banks (R-ID) said during a press conference before the first committee hearing begins:
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) tweeted about his grievances with Pelosi’s “sham committee.”
“Why was the Capitol left so vulnerable that day? Why wasn’t the National Guard here? Why didn’t we have a better security posture? What changes are needed to make sure it never happens again?” he asked.
McCarthy also said during his speech that “On January 6, these brave officers were put into a vulnerable and impossible position because the leadership at the top has failed.”
