WATCH: New Video Reveals Nancy Pelosi Admitting Responsibility for Not Having the National Guard at the Capitol Ahead of the January 6 Protests

New released video footage shared with House Republicans shows former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) admitting responsibility for the lack of National Guard protection at the Capitol before the January 6, 2021 protests.

Politico notes he footage “was shown in a video shot by the former speaker’s daughter, documentarian Alexandra Pelosi, and recently provided to congressional investigators by HBO.” It was never aired — nor did Alexandra Pelosi provide it to the January 6 Committee when it was supposedly investigating the Capitol riot.

The January 6 Committee did not issue subpoenas to Speaker Pelosi or her daughter for documents related to the riot.

The video backs up former President Donald Trump’s assertions that Pelosi was responsibility for inadequate security preparations before the protest.

Trump had offered to deploy the National Guard ahead of the “Stop the Steal” rally six days prior, but his offer was declined.(Trump was later faulted by critics for not intervening quickly to send the Guard during the riot.)

In the video, Pelosi is shown lamenting: “We have responsibility … we did not have any accountability for what was going on there. And we should have. … Why weren’t the National Guard there to begin with?”

She continues: “I take responsibility for not having them [the National Guard] just prepare for war.”

Pelosi went on to dismiss Republican nominees for the minority roles on the January 6 Committee, marking the first instance in congressional history where the leader of the majority party took such action.

Instead, she personally selected two Republicans critical of Trump. This led to an investigation heavily skewed in one direction, avoiding any scrutiny of Pelosi’s involvement in the events.

Despite the one-sided nature of the investigation, prosecutors have used its proceedings in criminal cases against Trump and his supporters.
