previously unseen video has emerged from January 6 2021 that reveals Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had a camera crew set up inside the Capitol building ahead of the riot.
The video was obtained by CNN from Pelosi’s daughter.
After the protests start getting out of hand, the behind-the-scenes footage shows Pelosi excitedly saying that she hopes President Donald Trump heads to the Capitol.
“I’ve been waiting for this!” she says.
The speaker is also seen threatening to “punch” Trump if he appears at the Capitol, adding that she’d happily “go to jail” for it.
The video clip opens with Pelosi, in her office, watching Trump deliver a speech during his “Save America” rally on Jan. 6.
Pelosi, knowing that Trump and his supporters blamed the outcome of the 2020 presidential election on alleged voter fraud in several key swing states remarks, “it’s very dangerous what he’s doing.”
She then kiddingly tells aides to relay to Trump “if he comes here, we’re going to the White House” – a comment that drew laughter.
After Pelosi looked out the window and saw a large crowd marching toward the Capitol, her chief of staff, Terry McCullough, informed her that the Secret Service had discouraged Trump from joining demonstrators.
They said they did not have the resources to protect him there.
