GOP Rep. Jim Banks claims Pelosi scripted all of the damning police testimonies at the Capitol riot hearing

GOP Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana has accused, without providing evidence, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her office of scripting the testimonies offered by police officers at Tuesday’s hearing about the Capitol riot.

At the hearing, several police officers emotionally recalled defending the Capitol on January 6, describing being beaten, receiving racial abuse, and fearing for their lives.

Banks made the claim of Pelosi’s authorship in a Tuesday night appearance on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.” Pelosi’s office denied the claim to Insider, calling it “despicable.”

Pelosi had previously blocked Banks and fellow GOP Rep. Jim Jordan from the House Select Committee that was investigating the riot, saying the pair – Trump loyalists who voted against certifying President Joe Biden’s election win – would “impact the integrity” of the probe.

Banks responded last week by accusing Pelosi of constructing a “purely partisan exercise” with the commission.

He told “The Ingraham Angle” on Tuesday: “Everything that you saw today was carefully scripted by Speaker Pelosi and her staff.”

“Even the statements that these police officers read, you could tell at times they didn’t write the statements, they were merely reading them as they stumbled over some of the words that they weren’t familiar with as they were reading.”

The host Laura Ingraham did not ask him for evidence of the claim.

Banks went on to say that the lawmakers selected to join the commission were picked on the grounds of pro-Democratic partisanship, echoing a sentiment Ingraham had earlier introduced.

A spokesperson for Pelosi told Insider on Wednesday: “The claim is despicable. Neither the Speaker nor her staff scripted their testimonies in any way.”

Banks’ office did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

  1. Nancy Pelosi is working overtime to take Trump down. All that extra work and probably sleepless nights will give her a stroke which is a fitting endeavor for a cruel evil wicked witch that she is. I hope she does not die.She needs to be hospitalized for the rest of her life and at the age of 80, this could become a reality. imagine the embarrassment it would be to her to have to be fed, bathed,dressed and have her self cleaned after using the toilet or maybe from a bed. She deserves all that will happen to her for being so Satanic in life.

    1. One thing for sure, she is not serving the citizens of America and judging from the many comments I have read here and else where, she is not respected or well thought of. A good name is of great value.

  2. I watched part of the Circus, The Police could not even pronounce some of the words, that was suppose to be their own words. All of them would read a little and then would try to figure out what was written down for them to say, They would read and then, go um and try to made up stuff. No Doubt it was written out for them.

    It could not have been more obvious. And anyone who did not realize all along that this so-called “hearing/investigation” was going to be scripted down to the last word is truly self-delusional. Hitler and Stalin would be proud.
