Trump Nancy Pelosi Is Responsible for Jan 6 Riot

Former President Donald Trump accused former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of being “responsible” for the riot at the Capitol on Jan 6, 2021.

During an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Trump said, “Nancy Pelosi was in charge of security and turned down 10,000 soldiers; if she didn’t turn down the soldiers, you wouldn’t have Jan 6.”

Host Kristen Welker asked, “Did you call military or law enforcement?”

“I’m not going to tell you anything. Let me put it this way: I behaved so well. I did such a good job. Nancy Pelosi turned down 10,000 soldiers. If she didn’t do that,” Trump responded.

Welker said, “Nancy Pelosi doesn’t have the authority that you have as commander in chief, though.”

“Listen to me, Kristen. Listen to me,” Trump responded.

“I understand that the police testified against her, Capitol Police, great people. They testified against her, and they burned all of the evidence, Okay? They burned all of the evidence. They destroyed all of the evidence about Nancy Pelosi.”

Welker then asked, “What do you say to people who wonder why you, as commander in chief you, have authorities that Nancy Pelosi doesn’t have.”

“She has authority over the Capitol,” Trump replied.

“Why didn’t you say help in the moment, though?” Welker asked.

“Frankly, I assumed that she took care of it,” Trump said.

“When you realized that the National Guard wasn’t coming?” Welker asked,

“You don’t realize anything until quite a while that the National Guard aren’t coming. I asked it to be there three days in advance, and she turned it down,” Trump said.

“She says that that request was never officially made,” Welker said.

“Just stop it. The mayor of D.C. gave us a letter, saying that she turns it down, okay?” Trump said.

“We have it. Nancy Pelosi also was asked, and she turned it down. The police commissioner of Capitol Police.”

“Capitol Police said that he wanted it, and Nancy Pelosi wouldn’t accept it. She’s responsible for January 6,” Trump said.

Nancy Pelosi is responsible. And the J6 Committee refused to interview her,” Trump continued.

Watch

Welker interjected, “Mr. President, you’re the president though. You have — you have authorities that no one else has as the commander-in-chief. Do you think you showed leadership on that day?”

“Yes. Absolutely. I did,” Trump responded.
