Nancy Pelosi Says Mike Pence’s Brother is Lying About Her Actions During Insurrection
Republicans have spent of the last few weeks trying to paint the January 6th insurrection in a different way. The people weren’t rioters, claimed some GOP congresspeople, they were patriots fighting for their country.
But there is plenty of video of the insurrectionists and their actions. “Hang Mike Pence,” a number of them shouted as they attempted to breach the Capitol.
Mike Pence’s brother, Greg, recently voted against an investigation into the events of January 6th. In addition, the Indiana Rep. accused Nancy Pelosi of not wanting to come back to the building for a vote. Pelosi furiously shot back, saying Pence has no idea what he is talking about.
In an attempt as to why he didn’t want to investigate people who wanted to kill his brother, Pence said, “[Mike Pence] was a hero. He wouldn’t leave. [He said] I’m going to gavel back in.” The Indiana Rep. continued, “Nancy Pelosi said, ‘We can’t come back for two or three days,’ and [the vice president] said, ‘As soon as the Capitol Police, the heroes, clear the building, I’m gaveling back in.’”
When asked about those comments yesterday, Pelosi shot back, “He completely does not know what he’s talking about. I was a force for coming back from the start, and I was glad it was bipartisan that we all agreed to come back. But he knows not of what he speaks, and he can ask his brother if he wants to get any information.”
