Stefanik criticizes Pelosi's 'off-limits' status as a member of the Jan. 6 committee

Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), chairwoman of the House GOP Conference, asked Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Calif.) why Pelosi (D) was excluded from the committee's examination of the events leading up to violence on Jan. 6, 2021.

“You have only one office that’s off-limits to investigation and that office is Nancy Pelosi’s office,” Stefanik told Fox News’ “Life, Liberty and Levin” on July 16.

“Bennie Thompson said at the start of this witch hunt that everything is fair game,” she added, “except for the speaker of the House’s office.”

There were potential threats, potential violence that day, which were brought to the attention of the speaker's office. Stefanik said they failed to ensure Capitol Police had the necessary support for securing the Capitol. The communication with the sergeant at the arms office has not been turned over."
