House Republicans Release Footage of Pelosi on J6 That Undermines a Key Democrat Narrative

House Republicans say newly obtained footage of former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on January 6 undermines a years-old narrative about the security failures on Jan. 6. 

The video, taken by Pelosi’s daughter Alexandra as she’s being led away from the Capitol, was obtained by House Republicans from HBO. Alexandra had helped the network with a documentary about the J6 riot, but the full clip was not released until Monday.

Pelosi can be heard saying “I take responsibility” for the security failures. 

“We have responsibility, Terri," Pelosi is heard saying on the videotape to her chief of staff, Terri McCullough. "We did not have any accountability for what was going on there, and we should have. This is ridiculous.”

Pelosi also said: “You’re going to 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?” 

McCullough, replied as the speaker’s SUV raced through an underground parking garage: “They thought that they had sufficient ... resources." 

Pelosi responded, clearly frustrated: "No, that’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 seemed to be referring to congressional leaders, and McCullough seemed to be referring to the U.S. Capitol Police force. (Just the News)

A spokesperson for Pelosi said "House Republicans are still trying to whitewash January 6th. It’s shameful, unpatriotic and pathetic."

"Numerous independent fact-checkers have confirmed that Speaker Pelosi did not plan her own assassination. Cherry-picked out-of-context clips don't change that," the spokesperson told Just the News.
