A newly leaked video shows former Speaker Nancy Pelosi acknowledging her responsibility for the security breaches during the events at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. This admission is a major shift in the narrative, as for years the blame had previously been placed squarely on President Trump.

The footage, released by the House Subcommittee on Oversight led by Chairman Barry Loudermilk (R-GA), shows Nancy Pelosi in a candid discussion during the January 6 events, acknowledging her role in the inadequate preparation that led to the Capitol breach. “We have responsibility, Terry. We did not have any accountability for what was going on there, and we should have,” Pelosi can be heard saying in the video.

This footage has emerged three years after Pelosi spent millions of taxpayer dollars on investigations and consistently blamed President Trump.

Then-speaker Nancy Pelosi and Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser were both warned about potential security issues prior to January 6th, yet both declined the deployment of National Guard troops to the US Capitol that day.

Pelosi and Bowser rejected the offer of thousands of National Guard troops at the Capitol that day for political reasons.

The newly leaked admission is significant not only because it directly contradicts the long-held narrative that solely blamed President Trump but also because it underscores a failure at the highest levels of congressional leadership to ensure the Capitol’s security. The responsibility for deploying the National Guard and the overall security framework for significant events like the certification of the Electoral College votes falls on congressional leaders and the Department of Homeland Security.

The Oversight Subcommittee’s release of the video appears to be an attempt to correct the record, demonstrating that the responsibility for the January 6 events isn’t what was previously portrayed.
