Last week, bombshell information came out as documents were leaked that had “exculpatory evidence proving the Department of Justice was aware that a group of Indicted Proud Boys were innocent- yet are prosecuting them anyway.”
It’s being said that an FBI “Confidential Human Source, or CHS, infiltrated the Kansas City Proud Boy Group for over a year and a half before the January 6th event and kept the FBI goons informed on the group’s activity.”
It was revealed that the FBI informant is a person named James Ehren Knowles.
Knowles, the FBI plant, explained to his superiors, that the Proud Boys did not really know what they were getting themselves into. There was no planning or conspiracy to enter the Capitol, and the Proud Boys assisted law enforcement within the Capitol.
Now, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is being pressed by Truth Social CEO Devin Nunes to explain why Capitol Police failed to take extra security measures leading up to and on the day of the violence.
In an interview with Newsmax’s “Spicer & Co.,” Nunes, a former Republican Representative, discussed the issue with Kash Patel, who worked for Nunes when he was the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Patel went on to become a top official in Trump’s administration.
“There was intelligence ahead of time that the Capitol Police should have known – which clearly Kash over at the White House, they knew, which is why President Trump authorized National Guard troops,” Nunes declared.
“You know there are tens of thousands of people coming, and you do nothing? And this is the question Nancy Pelosi is going to have to answer because the payback is going to be a ‘you-know-what’ if Republicans are successful this November,” he continued.
According to Patel, as chief of staff to the Acting Secretary of Defense under President Trump, his department “acted appropriately” in light of the info it had prior to the event.
“The American people have a right to know … how we acted appropriately on Jan. 4, 5, and 6 to include President Trump’s authorization of the National Guard that Nancy Pelosi and [Washington, D.C.] Mayor [Muriel] Bowser refused,” Patel argued.
The Republicans are planning to exert pressure on Pelosi because several of their own members were subpoenaed by the committee.
Almost a month after the incident, four Republicans wrote Pelosi asking why she hadn’t done more to secure the Capitol, including asking for National Guard deployments and a larger Capitol Police force.
As of yet, Pelosi has not responded publicly to the members’ letter seeking an explanation.
However, her handpicked committee has issued subpoenas to several GOP members who are also staunch Trump supporters, which has led several of them to pledge to investigate on their own if the GOP wins control of the chamber in November.
According to CNN:
House Republicans, furious that five of their own have been subpoenaed by the January 6 select committee, are discussing their own plans to retaliate if they win back the majority: Issuing subpoenas to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other top Democrats.
Several rank-and-file Republicans, likely committee chairmen and members of the party leadership told CNN on Friday that the January 6 panel’s subpoenas to House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy and four other Republicans create a new standard they may ultimately choose to replicate in a potential GOP majority next Congress.
At the top of the list: Pelosi, whom Republicans say they plan to target over her communications regarding security matters in the run-up to January 6 and as the riot was unfolding in the Capitol.
“I’m gonna tell you the truth: Yes, I do,” Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA) responded when asked about subpoenaing Pelosi.
“This is setting the precedent, and we’re just not gonna lie down and let this happen. There are serious questions about her role on January 6 and exactly what she did and what she didn’t do. And we need to get to the bottom of that,” Carter continued.
There is also broad support among Republicans for issuing a subpoena to Pelosi, who some predict will retire if she loses the speakership.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a subpoena there,” said Representative Brian Mast (R-Fla.).
Rep. Jim Jordan, a GOP member of Congress from Ohio who has called for a probe into Pelosi’s role, spoke out earlier this year when discussing the committee’s approval of a contempt report for Steve Bannon.
“There’s been subpoenas issued to 11 individuals, 11 American citizens who asked the government permission on an application to hold the Trump rally,” Jordan stated.
“And why would they subpoena me? I didn’t do anything wrong — I talked to the president,” Jordan exclaimed. “I talk to the president all the time. I just think that’s — you know where I’m at on this commission — this is all about going after President Trump. That seems obvious.”
“This is scary where they want to go and what they’re doing to Americans’ constitutional rights. And finally, I would ask the fundamental question, how would you expect witnesses to participate when you wouldn’t let Republicans participate in the committee? How can you do that? We know what this is about, it’s plain and simple, this is about they’ve got nothing else to talk about,” he went on.
