Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement on House Republicans’ 140 page report that outlines Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats’ many failures to secure the U.S. Capitol on January 6th and their politically motivated partisan committee.

"The House Republican report on January 6th confirms everything we’ve known for the last two years about Speaker Pelosi’s abysmal failure to secure the U.S. Capitol," Stefanik said. "The facts are clear, Pelosi and House Democrat leadership were more worried about 'optics' than securing our nation's Capitol. Pelosi's illegitimate committee was never about seeking the truth. In fact, the only member of Congress that was off limits from these investigations was Nancy Pelosi, who FAILED to secure the Capitol.

"Make no mistake—House Democrats and their all too eager mainstream media stenographers used this taxpayer-funded illegitimate committee to punish their political opponents.

"In the new Majority, House Republicans will demand accountability for Pelosi’s complete failure to secure the Capitol and their partisan sham investigations against their political opponents.”
