Nancy Pelosi Calls Jan. 6 an Inside Job

( – On Dec. 6, former House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi agreed with 2024 Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, who called Jan. 6, 2021, an “inside job.” However, Pelosi disagreed with Ramaswamy about who was in charge.

During the Dec. 6 Republican primary debate, Ramaswamy commented that federal agents were behind the Jan. 6 events in the U.S. Capitol. The fourth Republican primary debate, held in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, was moderated by SiriusXM radio host Megyn Kelly, NewsNation anchor Elizabeth Vargas and Washington Free Beacon editor-in-chief Eliana Johnson.

Ramaswamy asked if he was the only candidate on the debate stage who could say that Jan. 6 looked “like it was an inside job.” The moderators and other 2024 Republican presidential candidates did not push back against Ramaswamy’s claim that Jan. 6 was an “inside job.”

During an interview for “The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell” on MSNBC, Pelosi stated that Jan. 6 was an inside job. However, she said that behind the events of Jan. 6 was former President Donald Trump and “his henchmen,” referring to Republicans in Congress.

She also discussed the decision of the House Speaker and Louisiana Rep. Mike Johnson to intentionally blur the faces of people seen on security footage from Jan. 6, taken inside the U.S. Capitol. Johnson stated the faces of people would be blurred in the footage “because we don’t want them to be retaliated against,” or charges be brought against them by the Department of Justice. Pelosi stated that is “just not right.” Pelosi added that he blurred their faces “Because he knows it’s an indictment on them.” She claimed Johnson cared more about protecting the people than the law enforcement officers at the Capitol on Jan. 6.

Pelosi added that those who previously voted for Trump should consider “what’s at stake” if Trump is re-elected.

Polling shows that Trump continues to dominate the field of Republican candidates, with the first Republican nominating contest scheduled for Jan. 15 in Iowa.
