House Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Jim Banks (R-IN) told Breitbart News Saturday that corrupt, decrepit Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is covering up the “systemic breakdown of security” on her watch during the January 6 protests.
Banks spoke to Breitbart News after Democrats and two anti-Trump Republicans, Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), held the first public hearing for the January 6 select committee during primetime on Thursday evening.
Banks described the hearing as a “complete dud” that was designed to “divert attention away from gas prices on average over $5 per gallon,” inflation, and the other crises facing the Joe Biden administration. “They did everything they could to change the subject, Matt,” Banks remarked.
“It’s more important to focus on what they didn’t talk about, what they didn’t focus on, and what they didn’t talk about was the systemic breakdown of security at the Capitol on Nancy Pelosi’s watch and the cover-up of documents and questions on that she doesn’t want to be asked,” Banks said. “That is why they kicked me off the committee: because we were going to ask questions about her involvement in calling off the National Guard and questions about that and documents she refuses to give up – documents to the bipartisan Senate Homeland Security Committee about the calling off the National Guard on January 6.”
Banks said that the “bread crumbs” relating to the lack of security at the Capitol “lead back to her office.” Instead, he said Pelosi continues to lead a witch hunt against former President Trump and his supporters.
