When the Jan 6 Committee was being assembled, Chairman Bennie Thompson made a big deal of saying that “Nothing is off limits.” Nothing was off limits as far as Trump was concerned, that is. However, there was something very specifically to be off limits, according to Thompson.
I found that very curious at the time but the reason for this has become crystal clear. A few days ago, the media heralded the release of a “new video” from January 6th. In it, Pelosi is seen fretting, complaining and threatening to punch out Donald Trump
New footage from Jan. 6, 2021, shows a candid moment when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi threatened to physically strike then-President Trump, should he have joined those protesting at the Capitol.
In the video, which was publicly shared Thursday, Pelosi admits the actions could have resulted in her going to prison — a consequence she said she would “be happy” to accept.
“I hope he comes, I’m going to punch him out,” Pelosi tells her Chief of Staff Terri McCullough, who discourages her boss from making the comments. “I’ve been waiting for this, for trespassing on the Capitol grounds. I’m going to punch him out.”
As you probably know, there are a number of unanswered questions about January 6th, not the least of which is why Pelosi didn’t seek additional security for the Capitol that day. The House Sergeant at Arms, who is appointed by the Speaker of the House, oversees the security of the House and answers to the Speaker. The Sergeant at arms at the time was Steven Sund. Sund did say that the House and Senate rebuffed his requests for additional security. This was later confirmed.
But there are even larger questions.
Did you catch it? She says, “I’ve been waiting for this, for trespassing on the Capitol grounds.” Waiting for what, exactly, and since when? Did she know what was coming?
The answer seems to be yes. She knew.
The filmmaker of the above “new video” was one Alexandra Pelosi. Dutch American journalist Michiel Vos, Alexandra Pelosi’s husband, was outside reporting on the crowd. You watch some of the video and a really good question follows:
Why was a film crew allowed to tag along in the secure locations with Ds during J6?https://t.co/aAesGAS4BV

Why was a film crew allowed to follow Jan 6 committee members to this “undisclosed secure location”? Why was a film crew there at all?
The big one- why did Nancy Pelosi summon her daughter to make a documentary of this day if she did not know what was coming? Why did Pelosi want to record the events of that day?
Because she knew. Sund knew. Everyone knew. The problem is additional security would have made the documentary effort moot. They rolled the dice and wound up facing a bigger problem than they expected.
When Kevin McCarthy sets up the next committee- January 6, Part Deux- he needs to ask “what did Pelosi know and when did she know it?” I suspect Pelosi will resign her position in the House before McCarthy can take action.
There is an opening in the diplomatic ranks- Biden has yet to appoint an Ambassador to Italy. Pelosi is said to be interested, particularly if the GOP takes the House and Biden is holding the seat open for her.
She won’t testify as a member of Congress, but perhaps McCarthy could issue a subpoena, have her arrested when boarding the aircraft to Rome, have her shackled in public and tossed into Jeffrey Epstein’s cell. If she remains in office, her ass is fried.
Or perhaps order up a pre-dawn SWAT team raid on the Pelosi mansion as she is a flight risk.
Either way, we need to know the truth.
