In an unparalleled spectacle reminiscent of a Hollywood scene, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, escorted by her security detail, was seen dramatically evacuating the Capitol on January 6 during the ongoing protests. This revelation came to light via recently obtained Capitol Police security footage, showcasing Pelosi’s exit through a secret passage, while her daughter dutifully recorded the entire episode. This made it clear to many that neither Nancy Pelosi nor her daughter faced any significant peril throughout the demonstration.
However, ex-Capitol Police Chief has remarked that Pelosi’s actions that day served as a ‘major distraction,’ imposing an unnecessary burden on her security team. This compelling narrative, captured by Just the News, reveals the untold side of January 6th, bringing fresh scrutiny to the long-standing Democratic leader’s response to the protest.
According to Just The News:
The footage, made available by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and aired for the first time on the Just the News, No Noise television show on Real America’s Voice on Thursday night, provides three different angles of Pelosi’s evacuation the afternoon of Jan. 6. Each show her daughter Alexandra roving around her mother’s delegation with a camera as they moved briskly through corridors, led by members of the Capitol Police protective detail.
The video shows then-Speaker Pelosi was not in jeopardy after fleeing the breached Capitol chamber, because the footage shows no protesters or rioters penetrated the evacuation route. Capitol Police confirmed to Congress the woman holding the camera in the footage was Pelosi’s daughter, Alexandra.
Just the News plans to air several more never-before seen security videos from the Jan. 6 riot in the next month that identify security failures and questions left unanswered by the Democrat-led House Jan. 6 select committee.
Alexandra Pelosi, the daughter of the erstwhile House Speaker, revealed that her mother didn’t know she was being recorded for certain sections of the HBO documentary, “Pelosi in the House,” which premiered this past December. The documentary notably features multiple instances from the protest, but doesn’t accurately reflect the additional burden borne by the security personnel due to the filming process.
Pelosi later affirmed that the ‘Trump thugs,’ who were reportedly engaged in assaulting and injuring Capitol Hill police, would be brought to justice. Nonetheless, it’s evident that incidents such as the ones Pelosi underscored were not commonplace, and the largely peaceful demonstration is being portrayed as a tumultuous riot. Given that the then-House Speaker was able to evacuate the protest area promptly, it’s apparent that a negligible number of protesters intended harm to the lawmakers.
