Speaking on Fox News this Sunday, former GOP Rep. and current Fox contributor Sean Duffy accused Democrats of playing a role in the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, suggesting that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi failed to act in a manner that would have prevented the attack.
According to Duffy, the reason Democrats didn’t call witnesses during Donald Trump’s impeachment trial is because they didn’t want to see “what we were going to find.”
“What did Nancy Pelosi know?” Duffy told Fox host Will Cain. “When did she know it? If she knew that there was an attack on Capitol, why didn’t she secure it earlier? Why didn’t she bring in the National Guard? What did Mitch McConnell know? What did AOC know?”
Duffy’s wife, Rachel Campos-Duffy, then chimed in and floated D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser as a possible conspirator.
“That’s right,” her husband agreed. “They don’t want to look there … They want to keep the focus on Donald Trump, not on what they didn’t do to protect the Capitol.”
According to a recent report from Fox News, top Republicans on several committees are demanding answers from Pelosi over security decisions made leading up to the storming of the Capitol.
