Footage of Pelosi at the Capitol on Jan 6 was part of a recent HBO documentary

More information has come out about the previously unexplained video that CNN released last month of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) threatening to strike back at President Donald Trump on Jan. 6.

According to a recent report by Breitbart News, the footage was actually a trailer for a documentary that will play on HBO Max, the sister channel of the far-left cable news network.

A new HBO documentary titled Pelosi in the House, made by her daughter Alexandra and available to stream starting on December 13, will focus on outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Pelosi in the House “offers a candid, behind-the-scenes chronicle of the life and career of the first female Speaker of the House,” the cable channel said.

According to Breitbart News, Pelosi was captured on camera in October, declaring she would gladly serve time in jail for punching President Donald Trump if he visited the Capitol on Jan. 6.

“I hope he shows up.” Pelosi said, “I want to punch him out.”

It wasn’t immediately obvious where the unusual video footage originated. But it is now evident that the video was taken while the HBO Max documentary was being produced.

After the Republicans successfully took control of the House in the midterm elections, Pelosi announced her resignation as House Speaker.

The 82-year-old lawmaker, who has served as the Democratic House leader since 1987 and has represented her California seat in Congress since then, said she will not run for reelection.

The most recent HBO film to portray top Democrats favorably is called Pelosi in the House. Year One: A Political Odyssey, a laudatory account of Joe Biden’s first year in office, was broadcast on HBO last month, just before the midterm elections.

Twelve years as minority leader and eight as speaker later, Pelosi has survived three of her Republican rivals. She is the first speaker to preside over two House votes to impeach a president, both times against Donald Trump in 2019 and 2021.

“Never did I think I’d go from homemaker to House Speaker,” Pelosi said, wearing her Mace of the Republic brooch and a suffragette white suit, according to Axios.

It featured talking-head appearances by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, and former White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki.

Pelosi made the announcement about her resignation after news that her husband, Paul Pelosi, was attacked in their home dominated headlines for several days just weeks ago.
