‘Quite appalling’: Pelosi lashes out at House Republican who said Capitol riot ‘was not an insurrection’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) lost it at a Republican congressman over comments he made last week about the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill.

According to reports, Pelosi’s outburst came after Georgia Rep. Andrew Clyde (R) said during a House Oversight Committee meeting on Wednesday that the events that transpired at the Capitol building earlier this year at the hands of then-President Donald Trump’s supporters don’t amount to an insurrection, as Democrats have labeled it.

“Let’s be honest with the American people,” Clyde told his House colleagues, according to Mediaite. “It was not an insurrection. And we cannot call it that and be truthful.”

“An undisciplined mob”

The GOP member of Congress and former gun shop owner went on to read directly from the dictionary.

“The Cambridge English dictionary defines an insurrection as, and I quote, ‘an organized attempt by a group of people to defeat their government and take control of their country, usually by violence,’” Clyde said, according to Mediaite.

“There was an undisciplined mob. And there were some who committed acts of vandalism. But let me be clear: There was no insurrection,” the Republican congressman claimed. “And to call it an insurrection, in my opinion, is a bold-faced lie.”

Clyde even reportedly remarked that “if you didn’t know the TV footage was a video from Jan. 6, you would actually think it was a normal tourist visit.”

Pelosi rages

That apparently set off Speaker Pelosi, who called Clyde’s statements “quite appalling” in her own remarks to reporters. “A Republican member of the [Oversight] Committee said what happened that day was just a normal orderly visit of people to the Capitol. Really? Really?” Pelosi pressed.

“Well, I don’t know a normal day around here when people are threatening to hang the vice president of the United States, or shoot the speaker in the forehead, or disrupt and injure so many police officers. I don’t consider that normal,” the speaker added, urging reporters to hear Clyde’s comments for themselves. Take a look:

The bottom line

According to reports, the unrest at the Capitol on Jan. 6 left at least five dead and caused upwards of $30 million in property damage. NBC News reports that over 440 individuals are now facing charges over their involvement.

Still, Clyde, who was at the Capitol at the time of the riot, doesn’t feel the term “insurrection” is a good descriptor for the events that transpired. “I can tell you the House floor was never breached and it was not an insurrection. This is the truth,” he declared Wednesday, according to NBC.

  5. If Nancy had done her Job there would have been no January 6th but she wanted Trump to fail since she is the guilty person where is the punishment ?
    O I forgot she’s a Democrat, laws don’t apply to them.
    get rid of Schumer and Pelosi , maybe we can get our country back.
    and while and while were at it lets cancel kamala and buffoon Biden

    1. You are so right. If what peslosi calls what happened at the Capital bldg an insurrection, then what are the protests? Just a nighly stoll.

  6. Carole’s right about that,this was all planned by the Left. I know people that were there and they saw a bus of people unloaded, BLM & Antifa! Pelosi knew about it. Disgusting Democrats! I meant PIGLOSI

  7. Of course she knew ahead of time and wanted To pin an event on Trump. She is a hypocrite because she excused Antifa snd BLM riots and their violence! Those rioters were “peaceful” according to Pelosi! She is an arrogant fool

  8. SNIFF & BLOW GOTTA GO! TIME TO DITCH BIDEN AND HARRIS!

    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action? How much more damage needs to be done?

    I urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONFLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    Then copy and paste this information into an E-Mail and send to friends and family asking them to make the calls, then forward on to their friends asking them to make the calls and forward on! WE NEED TO MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!

  9. January 6th incident was planned by Pelosi and others of the Democrats. China Biden is not president. President Trump is the true President!!!

  10. Jan.6 was nothing more than a protest,if it was anything else you wouldn’t be standing in the capitol right now.

  11. Pres. Trump called Pelosi 5 times for the guard to appear that day, AOC even ask Pelosi to send the guard days before the incident, Polosi said no. That’s one of Pelosi jobs, Protect the Capital” She will never take the blame. A FBI agent said he saw bus loads of Antifa dropped off wearing MAGA shirts & hats ,these people disposed of the shirts & hats when they hit the streets. Pres. Trump had nothing to do with this raid, Pelosi group ordered it & we all know it. Like Sidney Powell says,Masterpiece of deception-again.

  12. I get paid over $190 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 15k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.

  13. Nutsy Pelousy besides being too IGNORANT for anyone’s good is at fault for what happened at the Capital Building. See she and every member of Congress who voted for Closure to the Public the Capital Building VIOLATED both Their Oath of Office and the CONSTITUTION. Nutsy also had Capital Police who were supposedly not called till 20 minutes after the supposed breach of the Capital allow many members of both DOMESTIC TERRORISTS ORGANIZATIONS BLM and ANTIFA into the Building. The other item she has very very WRONG is to be an insurrection those who attacked had to be armed and unless she is charging the Capital Police with being the INSURRECTIONISTS then as ALWAYS she has not a clue as to what she is talking about. No Democrap does. As for someone saying they would shot her in the head that is a LIE because everyone knows the instant the bullet saw her VILE face it would run back into the gun.
