Democrats have been on the warpath in the aftermath of the deadly and destructive riots on January 6 that changed America forever.
According to The Hill, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) seems to be under the impression some lawmakers were potentially somehow complicit in the Capitol riots and as a result, has recommended that they be charged criminally if that ends up being the case.
While there is literally zero proof or indication that any lawmakers assisted in the deadly events of that day, some Democrats — again with no proof — have suggested otherwise, sparking Pelosi to take an aggressive stance presumably just in case evidence eventually surfaces that proves otherwise.
“If, in fact, it is found that members of Congress were accomplices to this insurrection — if they aided and abetted the crime — there may have to be actions taken beyond the Congress, in terms of prosecution for that,” Pelosi announced this week.
The belief by some Democrats that a handful of Hosue lawmakers might have “assisted” some of the Capitol rioters stems from a letter sent to the Capitol police by a group of 30 Democrats in which they claim “suspicious behavior and access” took place outside of the Capitol Building the day before the riots.
A number of those Democrats reported “an extremely high number of outside groups in the complex” on January 5, only to discover that some of those same people were present again on January 6.
“Given the events of January 6, the ties between these groups inside the Capitol Complex and the attacks on the Capitol need to be investigated,” the group of Democrats wrote. The suspicions were raised in part by Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ) who happens to be a U.S. military veteran. Several other Democrat veterans in the group made clear that they’re “trained to recognize suspicious activity.”
According to the New York Times, Capitol Police on Friday announced that they have launched an investigation into the possibility that any House lawmakers provided tours or other logistical assistance to people on January 5 who would join the rioters in the destruction on January 6.
