Appearing on Fox News, Rep. Jim Jordan asked why House Speaker Nancy Pelosi didn’t call on the National Guard to help on January 6th.
Jordan said. “Look, what happened to these guys never should have happened. They needed backup there. These guys risk their lives. They protect us. They protect you and everyone else when we’re around Capitol Hill.”
“So they should have had help. They should have had more — more National Guard or more police there. Why didn’t they?” The Ohio Republicans asked. “Why didn’t — reports have surfaced that said that, before January 6, Speaker Pelosi vetoed having the National Guard. Press reports said that. Press reports said, on January 6, that Speaker Pelosi hesitated in calling up the National Guard.”
