It’s Nancy’s Fault! U.S. Rep. Stefanik Torches Pelosi: Speaker ‘Bears Responsibility’ For Jan. 6th Capitol Riot

NOTE: a claim made in this article about the DC national guard has been corrected as of 9/13/2022. That correction can be read following the original, unaltered claim so that you can see the mistake made and read the truth of the matter.

With President Biden failing miserably in his first year in office, the Democrats are using today’s anniversary of the January 6th Capitol protests to blame former President Donald Trump and his supporters for their “insurrection.”

What is not getting coverage in the mainstream media is the fact that President Trump (at the time) had requested for the national guard to be called up days before, but Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Capitol police refused to take the help, allowing for embedded ANTIFA radicals to enter the Capitol building on the 6th. (NOTE: the National Guard claim is somewhat incorrect. According to the Epoch Times, Trump did request the National Guard be called up before Jan. 6th, but the DC Mayor didn’t use it. Further, there is no evidence Pelosi blocked the Guard from being deployed that day and, in any case, the D.C. National Guard is controlled by the U.S. president and the executive branch, not by the Speaker of the House.)

There are some conservatives who are speaking out reminding America of who is responsible for January 6th. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) asserted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) shared blame for the riot that occurred on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol.

Stefanik, who serves as House GOP Conference chair, released a statement on the eve of the Capitol breach’s anniversary, thanking law enforcement for their work to control the riotous behavior but condemning Pelosi for ultimately being the one “responsible” for leaving the Capitol prone to attack.

Stefanik called it “unacceptable” that despite Pelosi’s partisan nine-person investigatory committee persisting with its probe into the riot, “one year later the American people still do not have answers as to why the Capitol was left so vulnerable.”

Stefanik said in reference to the committee targeting former President Donald Trump and dozens of his closest allies with subpoenas – “Rather than focusing on improving the security of the Capitol and adopting all the recommendations from the U.S. Capitol Police, Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats are instead using their illegitimate partisan sham of a committee to shred Constitutional precedent and punish their political opponents,”

On Monday Stefanik along with Reps. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Jim Banks (R-IN), and Rodney Davis (R-IL) led a call with reporters who emphasized their stance that Pelosi’s January 6 committee is in fact a “cover-up” for Pelosi’s own transgressions.

They pointed to a letter Davis, the House Administration Committee ranking member, sent to Pelosi on Monday in which he accused the speaker of obstructing records related to security preparedness of the Capitol from the Sergeant-at-Arms, the Chief Administrative Officer, and the House General Counsel, all of whom, Davis said, report to Pelosi.

Stefanik on Wednesday also reiterated that the January 6 committee has essentially deemed Pelosi exempt from blame for the riot, despite Pelosi’s history of overseeing security-related actions of the Capitol like installing magnetometers, holding a briefing on security preparedness ahead of a September 18 rally, and limiting Capitol visitation because of coronavirus.

January 6 committee chair Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) told CNN last July. “Well, if you look at the charge that we have in the resolution, it says the facts and circumstances around January 6. I don’t see the speaker being part and parcel to that,

In her statement, Stefanik declared, “The American people deserve to know that the ONLY office that is off-limits to this investigation is the Speaker’s office.”

“The fact is that Nancy Pelosi bears responsibility as Speaker of the House for leaving the Capitol so vulnerable despite multiple warnings and requests, and now she is responsible for the cover-up of that fact,” Stefanik concluded.


Today is Democratic political theater and those trying to use the events that took place on January 6th, 2021 for political gain, should be ashamed of themselves.

  1. Both the treasonous snakes (Pislosi and Biden) need taking to the gallows and hung by their lying necks until DEAD, DEAD, DEAD! We the people are sick of these dishonest phonies living off the taxpayers’ nickel and completely lawless in their behaviors.

  2. What about the 700+ people rotting in jail with no charges as political prisoners? When do they get their day in court? When do they get their lives back? What kind of country are we? The wrong people are in jail!

  4. I hope each and every one of those poor people rotting in that deplorable jail sue the hell out of every member of that Jan 6th Committee and the US Gov. et al. This is the most disgusting behavior I have ever witnessed by politicians who supposedly “serve the people” but really only show up to work for insider trading $$ and sex with Chinese spies.

  5. The top later of both congress and the DOJ,the FBI are a bunch of evil,sorry people who care only about their jobs and do not care about justice or the American people.

  6. The top layer of congress,the DOJ, the FBI only care about their jobs and not about the American people or our country.

  7. Yes of course Pelosi is responsible for January 6th incident and that death of a veteran….she planned the whole thing….arrest Pelosi because everything points to her…..

  8. How can you criticize the Speaker like this? It’s always someone else’s fault. She is stretched thin running the entire government and punishing her enemies at the same time. But she can handle it. She’s a goddess you know. Just ask her, she’ll tell you – if she doesn’t strike you down for doubting her status.
