(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Never-before-seen video footage from January 6, 2021, has revealed Democrat US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi vowed to “punch” then-President Donald Trump ahead of the US Capitol’s breach by pro-Trump protesters.
You can watch the video further down this post.
The video in question was captured by Alexandra Pelosi, the Speaker’s filmmaker daughter, and was obtained by CNN, The New York Post reported.
Part of that particular footage was included in a seven-minute video compilation on the 1/6 events played during the latest hearing of the House’s January 6 select committee.
The video in which Nancy Pelosi declares she would like to “punch out” Trump and then serve the time for it shows her in her office while the then-president is giving his speech at the “Stop the Steal” rally in Washington, DC, on January 6, 2021.
In his address, Trump called upon his supporters to “walk down to the Capitol” and promised never to concede losing the 2020 presidential election.
“It’s very dangerous what he’s doing,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi remarks in the video.
“If he comes here, we’re going to the White House,” she tells her staffers, a comment they partly greet with laughter.
Then Pelosi looks out the window onto the National Mall, saying that the pro-Trump protesters “are marching up.”
At that point, her chief of staff, Terry McCullough, tells her the Secret Service had persuaded Trump not to go to Capitol Hill due to potential security risks.
“That could change,” the Democrat Speaker of the House reacts.
“If he comes, I’m gonna punch him out,” Pelosi exclaims.
“I’ve been waiting for this, for trespassing on the Capitol grounds. I’m gonna punch him out, and I’m gonna go to jail, and I’m gonna be happy,” she declares in an agitated voice.
The video compilation played by the January 6 House select committee at the end of last week also showed more footage of Pelosi but later in the day, after the US Capitol had been breached and the US lawmakers had been evacuated.
Some of the footage shows Pelosi and the top Democrat of the US Senate, Chuck Schumer, hiding in Fort McNair and making frantic calls to different federal and state government institutions.
“They’re breaking the law in many different ways. And quite frankly, much of it at the instigation of the president of the United States,” Pelosi says in one clip.
In another clip, together with Schumer, she argues that the US Congress should complete the certification for the 2020 election results regardless of the Capitol storming.
“We have got to finish the proceedings, or else they will have a complete victory,” the speaker argues.
