Trump’s interview with NBC: ‘Pelosi turned down 10,000 soldiers’ and ‘is responsible for January 6’

Nancy Pelosi

Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) credited the January 6th committee for a “historic moment” of former President Trump’s arraignment. However, her rhetoric appears to be a cover-up of her own negligence and failure to secure the Nation’s Capitol building. Donald Trump told NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Kristen Welker in a sit-down interview at his New Jersey golf club that Pelosi “is responsible for January 6.”

“Nancy Pelosi was in charge of security. She turned down 10,000 soldiers. If she didn’t turn down the soldiers, you wouldn’t have had Jan. 6.” As for his own actions, “I behaved so well, I did such a good job, Nancy Pelosi turned down 10,000 soldiers” Trump stated.

“I understand that the police testified against her, the chief very strongly against her, the Capitol police, great people,” Trump said in the interview that aired Sunday. “They testified against her, and they burned all the evidence. OK? They burned all the evidence. They destroyed all the evidence about Nancy Pelosi.”

“She has authority over the Capitol,” Trump added. “National Guard not coming? I asked her [for them] to be there three days in advance, and she turned it down…She says that that request was never officially made” Trump continued.

“The mayor of D.C. gave us a letter saying that she turns it down. OK, we have it. Nancy Pelosi also was asked, and she turned it down. The police commissioner of Capitol police…” Trump continued, as Welker attempted to interrupt him. “Wait, a minute,” he pressed on, “Capitol police said that he wanted it, and Nancy Pelosi wouldn’t accept it. She’s responsible for Jan. 6.”

In response to Trump’s interview, a representative for Pelosi told Fox News Digital, “As our office has said before, the former president’s allegations are completely made up. As numerous independent fact-checkers have confirmed, Speaker Pelosi did not plan her own assassination.”

Welker asked, “Mr. President, you have authority as commander in chief that no one else has. Do you think you showed leadership on that day?” Trump said, “Yes, absolutely, I did.” Trump insisted he could have pardoned himself before leaving office to avoid “fake charges” and “Biden indictments” he’s facing now. “They want to arrest their political opponents. Only Third World countries do that, banana republics,” Trump said. “I was given the option; I could have done a pardon of myself. You know what I said? ‘I have no interest.’”
