Jordan and Nunes Blame Pelosi for Jan. 6 Riots Regardless of Proof as She Proclaims Fee to Examine Revolt

Four Republican Congressmen, including Ohio Jim Jordan and California Devin NunesOn Presidents Day, Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives, sent a three-page letter blaming her for the deadly January 6 uprising, calling on her to end “this political charade”.

The sum of their writing that the spokesman – and not then-President Donald Trump – was responsible for the January 6 events contradicts a mountain of facts, including those presented during the impeachment trial last week. Senate minority chairman Mitch McConnell publicly agreed with at least seven other Republicans, 48 ​​Democrats and two independents that Trump was responsible for the deadly uprising.

Jordan and Nunes were among Trump’s most ardent supporters. Trump awarded both congressmen the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Pelosi announced Monday that it is forming a September 11th-style congressional commission to “investigate and report on the facts and causes of the January 6th uprising.”

JUST IN: Pelosi calls for a 9/11 commission probe from the January 6th uprising.

The comment on the “political charade” was taken from a speech Pelosi made after the November election calling on Republicans to surrender and end their “political charade”.

Pelosi’s spokesman Drew Hammill replied to Jordan-Nunes’ letter:

“Apparently these members are trying to divert responsibility for the attack on the Capitol from Donald Trump,” Hammill told Forbes. “We look forward to these ranking members asking the same questions to former Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.”

Here is the Jordan Nunes letter, followed by some reactions from political experts:

Jim Jordan and his passed out crew now use the GOP playbook to blame Speaker Pelosi for the Capitol uprising. It’s Hillary Clinton and Benghazi again.

With no real internal uprising ready to retake the party, republicanism is nothing but a tyrannical clique.

To be clear, some of the rioters tried to murder Nancy Pelosi, and Jordan and Nunes decided it was her fault

They try to hold Pelosi responsible for the MAGA mob that is raging in the Capitol

The attempt to blame Pelosi began last week:

This is a coordinated campaign to blame PELOSI for the January 6th attack.

Ron Johnson was on the same program, saying impeachment was an attempt to divert attention from Pelosi’s guilt.

It’s completely awkward, but there they are.
