Pelosi: Reps Who “Abetted” Rioters May Be Prosecuted

The New York Daily News reports:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi raised the possibility Friday of criminal prosecutions of Republican lawmakers if they are found to have provided Capitol tours to people who took part in the Capitol riots.

Speaking to reporters a week after a MAGA mob ransacked the Capitol and days after the House voted to impeach President Trump, the speaker responded to claims by multiple lawmakers who have referenced the tours on the eve of the riots.

“If in fact it is found that members of Congress were accomplices to this insurrection – if they aided and abetted the crimes – there may have to be actions taken beyond the Congress in terms of prosecution for that,” Pelosi said.
