Here’s what she said.
According to CNS News, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attacked Republicans stating that the enemy is “within the House of Representatives.”
“Today, when I meet with General Honore, he is looking at members here and at home and in between,” Pelosi told a news conference.
“So we want to have a scientific approach to how we protect members. I do believe and I have said this all along, that we’ll probably need a supplemental for more security for members when the enemy is within the House of Representatives. A threat that members are concerned about, in addition to what is happening outside.”
“But this is very, very important. It shouldn’t be — it shouldn’t be that not only is the president of the United States inciting an insurrection, but keeps fanning the flame, endangering the security of members of Congress to the point that they’re even concerned about members in the House of Representatives being a danger to them.”
A reporter asked Pelosi, “What exactly did you mean that the enemy is within?”
“It means we have members of Congress who want to bring guns on the floor and have threatened violence on other members of Congress,” Pelosi said. You can read the full article here.
