House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, is feeling her power. In yet another divisive move, Speaker Pelosi is targeting GOP members she claims allowed pro-Trump tourists to enter the Capitol days before the doors of the Capitol were breached.

Capitol Police have opened an investigation on Friday into whether members of Congress inappropriately gave visitors access to the Capitol ahead of the break-in on January 6. Several Democratic lawmakers raised concerns that their own Republican colleagues might have allowed members of a pro-Trump mob inside in the days leading up to the assault.

The New York Times reported:

“The inquiry came to light as Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that she had named Russel L. Honoré, a retired Army lieutenant general, to lead a security review of the Capitol in the wake of the riot, in which a throng of President Trump’s supporters rampaged through the building in a deadly security failure that put the lives of lawmakers and the vice president at risk.”

“Pledging accountability for those behind the Jan. 6 siege, Ms. Pelosi warned that if any Republican members of the House had aided the rioters as they sought to advance Mr. Trump’s effort to overturn the election results, they would be punished. She also said that she had spoken with the secretary of the Army and the Secret Service director to ensure that the necessary resources were in place to prevent a repeat at President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s inauguration next week.”
