Gingrich Points The Finger At Pelosi – Newt Squarely Places The Blame On Nancy For Capitol Security Failure
Right now, Nancy Pelosi is shirking her job as Speaker to push a political agenda. Her J6 commission is taking up time that could be spent helping Americans. Instead, she is searching for evidence that will confirm her accusations that Trump is to blame for the events of January 6.
So far, many believe she has been failing.
Not that the media is willing to admit that. Much like the Russian hoax, they are pushing her claim that Trump is chiefly to blame for what happened. But former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has another take. He blindsided Pelosi, saying she is squarely at fault for what went on.
From Fox News:
“Well, I think she is the person who is the most responsible for what happened.
“It was her job to ensure that there was adequate police, and if they didn’t have adequate police it was her job to ensure that the National Guard was there.
“So a lot of this, I think, is a dance by the Democrats, who don’t want us to look very closely at what actually happened…
“Again, as a former speaker, I was deeply offended that anybody would do what they did on the Capitol grounds, but as a former speaker I was also really offended that the current speaker, Pelosi, failed so totally in her job, which was to make sure this didn’t happen.”
During an interview on Fox News, Gingrich blasted Nancy Pelosi for not providing enough security on the day. Knowing that Congress would be convening for that important certification, she should have made sure there were enough Capitol police to protect the grounds. If there were not enough, Gingrich says she should have called in the National Guard.
Gingrich hammered old Nance, saying she “failed so totally in her job,” which is why chaos ensued. Now, she and Democrats are “dancing” around with this political witch hunt, to prevent Americans from asking what really happened. It’s possible Pelosi knows she should be held accountable for what happened.
But if she makes enough noise with her bogus commission, she could be hoping people will pass the blame onto Trump. Gingrich isn’t fooled, however. As a former Speaker, he knows exactly what should have been done to prevent the tragic events of that day. The House Speaker has the authority and responsibility to protect the Capitol Building.
We’ve heard reports that Pelosi was given warnings a day earlier about possible problems. With tensions so high and with so many people in D.C., any reasonable Speaker should have provided additional security. Yet Pelosi didn’t. Why isn’t anyone looking into that? Why isn’t she being investigated by Congress or others?
Perhaps we need to be paying more attention to what Newt is saying?
