(RepublicanWire.org) – On the first anniversary of the violence that took place at the United States Capitol Complex in Washington, DC, the mother of Ashli Babbitt, who was shot and killed by a United States Capitol Police Officer as she attempted to crawl through a window into a locked off and barricaded part of the Capitol, had a message for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

You can see all of what she had to say in the video below.

In part, Micki Witthoeft, Babbitt’s mother said at a small gathering on Capitol Hill:

“I would like to say to Nancy Pelosi, this is not your playhouse; it is not your private domain. These surveillance cameras were put up to capture what happened that day. The American people have a right to see the 14,000 hours of the footage. It is not her personal footage. You’re not the Queen, Nancy Pelosi. This is America’s 14,000 hours of missing footage. We have a right to see it…” 

Witthoeft went on to say that she believes the January 6 defendants currently in jail or prison are “political prisoners.”

Do you agree or disagree with Babbitt’s mother when she calls on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to release the 14,000 hours of video footage that she believes Pelosi is hiding from the American people?

President Donald Trump wanted National Guard troops in Washington to protect his supporters at a Jan. 6 rally that ended with them attacking the U.S. Capitol, leaving five dead, Trump’s former Pentagon chief testified on Wednesday.

Former Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller told a House of Representatives panel that he spoke with Trump on Jan. 3, three days before the now-former president’s fiery speech that preceded the violence and led to his second impeachment.

According to Miller’s testimony, Trump asked during that meeting whether the District of Columbia’s mayor had requested National Guard troops for Jan. 6, the day Congress was to ratify Joe Biden’s presidential election victory.

Trump told Miller to “fill” the request, the former defense secretary testified. Miller said Trump told him: “Do whatever is necessary to protect demonstrators that were executing their constitutionally protected rights.”

House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) presides during a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing titled “The Capitol Insurrection: Unexplained Delays and Unanswered Questions,” regarding the onMiller made the remarks during a contentious hearing held by the House Oversight Committee, which is investigating security failures in the days leading to and during the riot.

Representative Carolyn Maloney, the Democrat who chairs the committee, demanded answers from Miller on why National Guard troops did not arrive until hours after the building was Miller testified that the U.S. military was deliberately restrained that day when Trump’s rally turned into an assault by hundreds of his followers that left five dead, including a Capitol Police officer.

Miller testified that he was concerned in the days before Jan. 6 that sending National Guard troops to Washington would fan fears of a military coup or that Trump advisers were advocating martial law.

If Pelosi was really that concerned about protecting the Capital, wouldn’t she have accepted Trump’s request for additional troops, who’s fault is it now Nancy?

During her weekly press conference in the United States House of Representatives (watch the videos below), House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) once again accused former President Donald J. Trump of instigating and inciting a violent insurrection against the United States Congress on January 6th of this year.

Pelosi’s accusations about Trump came as she gave extremely defensive responses to reporters’ questions about whether she had taken adequate and effective steps to safeguard the U.S. Capitol Complex from a similar attack like the one that took place when Congress met in January to certify the election of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

According to Pelosi, who seemed to be ducking her responsibility for not having enough security available on January 6th:

I don’t think that whatever preparation anybody would’ve made, that anybody could predict that the President of the United States would incite an insurrection and a violent one. So I don’t fault anybody for not knowing – who have responsibility for communication and the rest on all of this – that the President, the President, was instigating this.”

Pelosi also blasted congressional Republicans for not addressing and taking action against Republican members of the House who she believes are inciting Islamophobia in the House and across the country.

See the video below…When will she ever just give it up? It never ends.

Do you agree or disagree with Pelosi? Do you believe Trump instigated and incited the January 6th riot at the U.S. Capitol? Why or why not?
