Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggest charging any member that she says facilitated the attack on the Capitol.
She said at a Press Conference on Friday “If, in fact, it is found that members of Congress were accomplices to this insurrection — if they aided and abetted the crime — there may have to be actions taken beyond the Congress, in terms of prosecution for that.”
Democrats claim that they and their aids saw groups touring the Capitol grounds in large numbers on the 5th of January a day before the siege took place.
Earlier in the week lawmakers sent a letter to DC Police and the Sergeant at Arms of both chambers of Congress to investigate suspicious “behavior and access” of the tour groups at the Capitol on the 5th.
Some lawmakers including Republican House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has called for a bipartisan commission to investigate the attack.
