Legal Group Alleges Pelosi and Schumer are Withholding Info About U.S. Capitol Riot

A conservative activist group is accusing Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of ducking its requests for information related to the tragic Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Judicial Watch, a legal affairs group, announced on Friday that it had sued the U.S. Capitol Police for information relative to the riot.

The group maintains it did so after the police agency failed to respond to a Jan. 21 public records request.

Specifically, Judicial Watch wanted emails exchanged between the Capitol Police Executive Team and the Capitol Police Board, whose members are appointed by Congress and the president, from Jan. 1 to Jan. 10 about security at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. The agency is overseen by four separate congressional committees.

The group also sought emails traded by the Police Board and the FBI, the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security.

Finally, Judicial Watch asked for “all” video footage from inside the Capitol between 12 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Jan. 6.

In a terse reply to Judicial Watch, the Capitol Police’s general counsel wrote, “We decline to provide the information requested in the attached January 21, 2021 Records Request. The email communications and video footage information requested in the attached are not public records.”

The response did not cite any legal authority by which the request could be denied.

“The public has a right to know about how Congress handled security and what all the videos show of the U.S. Capitol riot,” Judicial Watch said in a press release.

“What are Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer trying to hide from the American people?”

Recall that GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham more or less made the same point during former President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial.

Graham warned in a Fox News interview that if Democrats called witnesses to testify, Republicans will “want the FBI to come in and tell us how people actually pre-planned these attacks and what happened with the security footprint at the Capitol.”

  1. I pray to God that they all (Everyone of the Sons- of-Bitches Democrat’s and Republicans) get life in prison for the fiasco that they tried to pin on Trump.

    1. How about this for a NOVEL idea, instead of just calling names why don’t you PROVE there was no vote fraud this has NOT happened yet because not a single judge or government office has seen or considered the EVIDENCE everything was put down without any interest in evidence. So no this has not been debunked ,COME ON MAN , PROVE ME WRONG by actually going over ALL evidence. We deserve the truth after all we spent 3 years debunking the fake ass Russia hoax. Until the above happens there was in fact vote fraud just in the actions of those who are trying to supress an investigation.

    2. trump won 2/3 of his lawsuits where the merits and evidence were heard, and then evrry case started getting dismissed on technicalities after that. what a weird coincidence, right?

      trump didnt lose, he had it stolen from him
      theres evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that trump should have won. just because youre dumb enough to believe the media that has been proven time and time again to be completely dishonest and corrupt doesn’t mean the rest of us are wrong for actually looking at yhe evidence. you probably dont think there was any to look at, and that’s exactly my point.

    3. It isn’t the Trump loss concerning. People need to understand that wide scale cheating did occur and there is no integrity from those hired to display integrity but the elections like the government itself completely void of integrity.

  2. They are scared to look at the evidence cause they know if there was to be widespread fraud that all hell would break loose. Plus if you noticed they say their is no evidence of wide spread fraud. Not there was no evidence of fraud at all. So basically they are admitting there was fraud. So it makes you think what are they are hiding. I think the hate for trump that they are going to do whatever it takes to make sure he did not get a second term no matter what.
