WATCH: Pelosi Says January 6 Was Like 'Somebody in the White House Dropped a Bomb on the Congress'


In a preview for an interview with Lester Holt, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that January 6 was like “somebody in the White House dropped a bomb on Congress.”

The full interview will air Thursday evening on “NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.”

In the snippets that have been posted to social media, Pelosi says that she initially disregarded security telling her to evacuate the Capitol. Once she did, she said she was able to see images of what was happening from an undisclosed location.

“It breaks your heart — it’s as if somebody in the White House dropped a bomb on the Congress of the United States,” Pelosi said.

“But the thing that is unforgivable about January 6 is the traumatic impact that it had on the people who serve our country,” she added.

When she returned, Pelosi claims that in her staffer’s eyes she could see “the trauma, the fear of it all.”

“Whether it’s our police officers, or the staff. Our staffs are young, idealistic people who believe in our country and that they should be hiding under tables or behind locked doors with people banging on the door to do violence to them, or seeking their bosses…” Pelosi continued.

On the anniversary of the protest, Pelosi held a moment of silence on the House floor. She also praised congressional staff who were present.

The only Republicans in attendance were Dick and Liz Cheney.

“That day and the days after, they were the defenders of our democracy. And their courage and patriotism remain an inspiration,” said Pelosi. “Today, we accept responsibility as daunting and demanding as any previous generations of leadership have faced,” she said. “As we reflect on that darkest day, we remember that the insurrection sought not only to attack the building, but to undermine democracy itself.”

    Its so sick to see nasty 80-something year old crypt bitch Nancy Pelousy still menstruating so fucking hard over J6

    What a fucking filthy, endless flow of chunky stank blood over nothing… People suffered and DIED for almost a year while this posturing bitch had zero sympathy for it, but soon as the alpha-tard agency glowfucks get a couple bumblers to follow them into the capital…. OMG LOOK OUT MUH INSURRECTION. And the thieving, dishonorable cunt is expecting us to feel sympathy for her incessant victim posturing? Nah, get this trash out of the Swamp and let it drip and gush itself to oblivion over in godless California, far far away from normal people

    anyone that compares the Jan 6 crap to 9/11 needs to be removed from office. Those people are sub-human at best.

    Pay no attention to the noisome pestilence. We are not THAT divided. They just own 90% of the media , a lot of other stuff and they blackmail anyone they can. They don’t own US. And they only have power if we give it to them monetarily . Look at the ratings- CNN would be defunct if Pfizer wasn’t propping them up. Also, if the lack of support is what they are reporting…we know it is truly WORSE. I am reminded of a tune I play on occasions like today. If memory serves, it was written by a Australian kid about 15 about some rich yahoo. Tomorrow…Silverchair
    It’s 12 o’clock and it’s a wonderful day…I know you hate me but I’ll ask anyway .. won’t you come with me to a place in a little town?…The only way to get there is to go straight down…There is no bathroom and their is no sink…The water out of the tap is VERY hard to drink…Wait till tomorrow
    You think you can go on going living like a king?..Ooh babe well I strongly doubt it…
    Wait till tomorrow…Today (Jan 6) is their only leg to try to stand on and it will buckle…We always have tomorrow…and a dark storm is gathering on the horizon . The tide will return to them, what they have cast out upon the water.

    “But the thing that is unforgivable about January 6”
    the fact she says there is something unforgivable about it indicates she is hellbent on avoiding forgiveness and seeking revenge.
