Two Republican representatives appeared on Fox News Monday to discuss what Democrats might be planning for the first anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol Hill Riots.
According to Breitbart News, Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) appeared on FNC’s “The Ingraham Angle,” telling the Fox host that they believe House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is actually covering up the truth of the demonstration.
Banks and Jordan said during their interview that they think the speaker has to take responsibility for what happened one year ago on Thursday but that she isn’t willing to allow that to come to her doorstep.
“Now, just like Jim Jordan said, Democrats fear nothing more than the truth,” Banks said. “And that’s why when that’s why Nancy Pelosi kicked Jim Jordan and I off of the January 6 Committee, because we were already asking questions that Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want to answer.
“We don’t know why she’s trying to cover up many of the facts about what happened on January 6. But we know that she’s trying to cover it up. She’s covering up the truth.”
“And I know President Trump has important things to say about what happened that day,” he continued. “Jim Jordan and I and other Republicans are still at work, conducting interviews with Capitol Police officers and others to try to get to the truth.
“And we’re going to expose this – the truth along the way that shows that Nancy Pelosi and Democrats were involved in the negligence that led to the disaster that happened a year ago on January 6.”
“If we’re serious about making sure that another January 6 never happens again, then we need to answer these important questions about the systemic breakdown of security at the top ranks of the Capitol — the U.S. Capitol Police which reports to Speaker Nancy Pelosi,” Banks added.
