    House Jan. 6 Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., continues to
    keep House Speaker Nancy Pelosi out of the panel's investigatory
    purview, a top House Republican told "Life, Liberty & Levin" in the
    face of claims she rejected precautionary National Guard troops ahead
    of the riot.

    House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y. — who
    took over the role after House Jan. 6 Committee Vice Chairwoman Liz
    Cheney was voted out of the post — called the panel "un-American."

    Stefanik pointed to Thompson's 2021 comment that "nobody is off-limits"
    from investigation including former President Donald Trump, but also
    cited further comments by the 13-term Democrat she said suggest he
    excepts Pelosi.

    "Again, you have only one office that's off-limits to investigation,
    and that office is Nancy Pelosi's office. The Democratic head of the
    committee, Bennie Thompson, said at the start of this witch hunt...


    "[W]e know that the speaker's office was made aware of potential
    threats, potential violence that day. They failed to do their job to
    ensure the Capitol Police had the support they needed to secure the

    Republicans have cited comments from Thompson stating in-part the
    resolution governing the committee speaks to "facts and circumstances
    around Jan. 6," she said.

    "I don't see the speaker being part-and-parcel to that," he said.


    Still investigating Trump after two and a half years.

    They should have been investigating Nancy Pelosi from the beginning.
    She was in charge of security, and refused to have the National Guard
    present. She was warned there would probably be violence.
