Speaker Nancy Pelosi has meticulously staged the aftermath of the Capitol riots. She’s suggested a 9/11-style commission, chaired by a clearly partisan general, to investigate what happened.
The decision came the same day she was told by high-ranking Republicans that she would have to answer a slew of questions about the Capitol attacks.
The questions include what she knew about threats of a planned assault on the Capitol building, why the House and Senate Sergeant at Arms turned down security requests from former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund six times, and why Capitol security was so bad that police officers even kept the doors open for rioters and gawked as unarmed miscreants took over the Senate chamber.
Due to “optics,” Speaker Pelosi is now being accused of undermining security before and after the Capitol riots. According to several unnamed sources cited by the Daily Caller, the former House Sergeant at Arms is “covering for her.”
The Daily Caller offers a timeline that shows Irving’s allegedly being approached on the request at an inconvenient moment.
The Speaker’s office reported that the National Guard was approved around 1:43 p.m., according to the New York Times. According to CNN, Sund said he requested assistance from the National Guard about 1:09 p.m. According to Axios, Irving was informed about the matter after 2:00 p.m. Irving received the request after 2 p.m., according to reports, but Pelosi accepted it at 1:43 p.m.
One of the sources told the Daily Caller, “If you believe Irving’s timeline that he testified under oath to, how could he ask for permission from the Speaker 20 minutes before he got the request?”
“However, if you believe his sworn testimony that he never wanted to run the request up the chain, why did the Speaker’s office confirm he did?” The same source was used again.
“Irving is filling in for Nancy Pelosi. “There’s no doubt,” said another.
The Daily Caller explains why the sources aren’t available right now.
“The three sources who verified the conversation to the Daily Caller did so on the condition of anonymity because they did not want to put a chill on more witnesses to how the security situation unfolded on Jan. 6,” the DC reported.
“If the debate is correct, it raises concerns about what role Pelosi’s office played in the security failures that led to Irving’s and former Chief of Capitol Police Steven Sund’s resignations. In a statement to the Daily Caller, Pelosi’s Deputy Chief of Staff Drew Hammill did not refute the allegations.”
According to the National Pulse, not only was there a delay in getting clearance, but it also took hours for more National Guard to arrive on the scene, despite the fact that they were supposed to be on ‘standby.’
Sund summoned the House and Senate Sergeants-at-Arms at 1:09 p.m., even before the President had finished speaking. He told them that the National Guard will be called up. He also claimed that he wanted a state of emergency declared. Both, on the other hand, vowed to “run it up the chain” and get back to him.
The Capitol was breached at 1:50 p.m. Even before the rest of Trump’s audience may have arrived.
After that, there was an hour-long back-and-forth between D.C. officials, Army officials, and Capitol police.
The National Guard eventually arrived after 5 p.m.
It’s important to remember that the questions aren’t only about what happened during the Capitol riots, but also in the days leading up to them.
Days before the building attack, former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund warned Congress six times that there was a high risk of rioting. Following the riot, Speaker Pelosi forced Sund to resign, and he wrote her a letter detailing exactly what went wrong.
“In the days leading up to the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol, former Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund said he demanded that the National Guard be put on standby, but House and Senate security officials turned him down,” USA Today reported.
The prospect of a violent riot erupting at the Electoral College session of Congress on January 6th, following a disputed election in which Donald Trump allegedly “incites” a protest, was predicted in detail as early as March.
This was exposed in a Time article revealing a full-fledged campaign by progressive parties, influential businesses, and trade unions to “fortify” the US election and prevent Donald Trump from winning. The Time article also shows that these prominent left-wing organizations and radical leftists worked together to maintain a low profile during the riots.
