Pelosi Comes Unglued As She Claims Small Inauguration Is ‘Not A Concession To The Terrorists’

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) got defensive during her weekly press conference on Friday as she addressed plans for Joe Biden to have a scaled-down inauguration next week.

Pelosi Comes Unglued

“For a long time now, weeks, it has been determined that we would have a very small inauguration because of COVID,” Pelosi said, adding “that in order to have the distancing and the rest on the platform and then some people down below, it would be necessary to limit it.”

She went on to say that it is “most disappointing” because “we’re excited about nominating a new President of the United States, but not at the risk of people’s health and well-being and, indeed, their lives.”

“So this is always going to be small,” Pelosi continued, before mentioning the Capitol riots last week.

“Now, with the insurrection of last week, it is necessitated by security to have more security but hasn’t changed the nature of the swearing-in,” she said. “I think it’s important for people to know that. This is not a concession to the terrorists. It is a recognition of the danger of COVID.”

Pelosi Says Lawmakers Could Be Prosecuted Over Capitol Riots

Pelosi also said that any lawmakers who played a role in assisting the Capitol rioters last week may face criminal prosecution.

“If in fact it is found that members of Congress were accomplices to this insurrection, if they aided and abetted the crime, there may have to be actions taken beyond the Congress in terms of prosecutions,” she said, according to Politico.

Pelosi specifically singled out a rioter who was wearing a sweatshirt that read “Camp Auschwitz,” a reference to the concentration camp that killed over one million Jews during World War II.

“To see this punk with that shirt on and his anti-Semitism that he has bragged about to be part of a white supremacist raid on this capitol requires us to have an after-action review,” Pelosi said.

This comes days after Pelosi led the charge in the House impeaching President Donald Trump for a second time.

  • Nancy, all this means is the Biden voters would not come any way. People that vote for democrats don’t know anything about democrats. People that voted against Trump, already are wondering what the heck did I do. Nancy you should be run out of this country. The only bad thing that happened is the rioters didn’t get you , Schumer, or McConnell or any other lifetime politicians. Life timers and the fake media are the cause of what is going on in America. It won’t take long to over throw you. The reckoning is coning

  • COVID is the built in reasoning for the small crowds, from the campaign to the inaugeration. The only thing that was not limited by COVID was the number of mail-in votes.

  • I think Nancy Pelosi is right when she says the politicians involved in the Capital riots should be arrested so Lets start with her and then go after everyone else she recruited to infiltrate the Conservative protesters.

  • Pelosi said "if it is proven that any member of congress is found to have been involved in the Capitol 'attack""....leaving it open for proof of involvement...which would only apply to any republicans...democrats would deffinitely be treated differently...including herself. Wods do matter- even for democrats.

  • Biden "rallies" maxed out around 25 people. How many would attend inauguration of a babbling idiot who doesn't know what day of the week it is?
