House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (N.Y.) said: “It is a fact that … in December of 2020, Nancy Pelosi was made aware of potential security threats to the Capitol and she failed to act. It is a fact that the U.S. Capitol Police raised concerns and rather than providing them with the support and resources they needed and they deserved, she prioritized her partisan political optics over their safety.”

We gave Four Pinocchios to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) in March for making the same accusation without any proof. Five months later, McCarthy and Stefanik had no proof, either.

They are going to keep repeating this without evidence and ignore the fact that help was delayed by the administration.
