Pelosi Pushes for An Immediate Investigations Highlighting GOP

“Led by Representative Mikie Sherrill, a New Jersey Democrat and former Navy pilot, more than 30 lawmakers called on Wednesday for an investigation into visitors’ access to the Capitol on the day before the riot.”

“In a letter to the acting House and Senate sergeants-at-arms and the Capitol Police, the lawmakers, many of whom served in the military and said they were trained to “recognize suspicious activity,” demanded answers about what they described as an “extremely high number of outside groups” let into the Capitol on Jan. 5 at a time when most tours were restricted because of the coronavirus pandemic.”

Capitol Police also reported that Speaker Pelosi had asked Mr. Honoré to conduct an immediate review of the Capitol’s security infrastructure, interagency processes and procedures, and command and control.
