Were Pelosi, McConnell warned of potential violence before Capitol riot? Offices remain mum

Representatives of the Speaker of the House and Senate Republican Leader are also silent on whether the leaders weighed in on having National Guard troops bolster security at the Capitol prior to the events of Jan. 6.

The offices of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell won’t say whether the congressional leaders were briefed on potential violence ahead of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol — or whether they weighed in on requesting help from the National Guard to bolster Capitol security.

Just the News reached out to representatives for Pelosi and asked if the speaker was briefed about threats of violence in advance of the rally. Her office was also asked if the speaker favored or opposed having National Guard troops help Capitol Police to protect the Capitol Building before the rally. Her office didn’t provide a response.

McConnell’s press office was asked the same questions, but they did not return a request.

My thoughts, this was all a set up to delay and then fast pace the approval of electors to get Biden election certified quickly. The swamp wins again. As I have been saying for years we have one party rule in the United States. Ruling class aristocrats looking down on the will of the people. The fake crocodile tears of our Congress is pathetic. They were never in danger, they controlled the storming of the capital. Prove me wrong.
