(ConservativeUnit.com)- According to the Daily Caller, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is responsible for the lack of security at the Capitol Building on January 6 when far-left and far-right rioters broke into the building.
The Caller revealed how the former Sergeant at Arms, Paul Irving, had a discussion with Nancy Pelosi which played a part in his “blender of decision making” to delay the deployment of the National Guard during the day of the riot.
Pelosi’s office reportedly pushed Irving to keep the National Guard away from Capitol Grounds.
Citing three sources who had “direct knowledge of Irving’s talk with House Admin,” the Caller explained how discussions were more focused on “optics” rather than controlling the riot and stopping people from getting hurt. The discussion reportedly took place in the “months prior to the January 6 riot.”
And if Democrats really did believe that former President Donald Trump had spent four years inciting violence – which he didn’t – then shouldn’t they have thought ahead when they knew the president would be speaking in Washington, D.C.?
The timeline previously offered by Pelosi’s office, which claims that the Speaker approved the deployment of the National Guard at 1:43 p.m., was also discredited by the piece. Paul Irving also insists that he was only contacted about the issue after 2 p.m. that day.
Paul Irving is seen on the House floor at 1:09 pm on Jan. 6 and briefly glances at what appears to be his phone.
Steven Sund said he called Irving to request National Guard troops at 1:09 pm.
Irving said the request was not made until after 2 pm.

Speaking to the Caller, a source said that Irving’s timeline – which he testified to under oath – means that he asked for permission from the Speaker some 20 minutes before he received the request. Which doesn’t make any sense.
“Also if you believe his sworn testimony that he never had to run the request up the chain, why did the Speaker’s office confirm he did just that?” the source also asked.
Five people died during the Capitol Riots. Democrats described the incident as an “insurrection” and attempted to impeach former President Donald Trump with false allegations that he “incited insurrection.”
If House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had asked for the National Guard to be deployed sooner, rather than caring about “optics”, might those five people still be alive?
The Senate voted to acquit the former president on February 13.
