TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): January 6 is one of the most discussed events in modern American history, and yet, more than six months later, we still don't know why that happened. No one has explained it.
Nancy Pelosi knows why it happened. She could tell us why it happened if she felt like it. The Sergeant at Arms reports directly to Nancy Pelosi, she's the speaker of the House, and yet, repeatedly, Pelosi has worked to stop any inquiry whatsoever into the state of security at the Capitol on January 6th. In fact, the very next day on January 7th, Pelosi forced Steven Sund to resign from the Capitol Police. End of discussion. What exactly is going on here?
Congress' new January 6th committee was supposed to tell us what's going on here. Figuring out what happened that day was the whole point of having the committee. We have heard that again and again. And yet, it turns out that Nancy Pelosi has no intention of revealing everything she knows about January 6th, so she has turned that committee into yet another instrument of cover-up.
Today, Pelosi banned two Republican members of Congress from serving on that committee. They are Jim Jordan of Ohio and Jim Banks from Indiana. What did they do wrong? Those two specifically seem most likely to ask questions about January 6th that Pelosi did not want to discuss. They pushed for openness, so she booted them. At a briefing at the Capitol today, Pelosi did not even bother to deny. That's why she did it.
