3. OK, let's try this again

Let's try this again.
The Speaker is no more at fault than Mitch McTurtle and the former guy, As a matter of fact, possible less

The Capitol Police Board is made up on the House Sergeant at Arms, the Senate Sergeant at Arms and the Architect of the Capitol.

The House SAA is selected by the Speaker and then Elected by the House

The Senate Sergeant at Arms is selected by McConnell and voted on in the Senate

The Architect is appointed by the President (Trump) to a 10 year term that is confirmed by the Senate, so it looks like 2/3 of the Police Board was approved by Republicans.

Additionally, Paul Irving was first appointed by Speaker John Boehner

4. Don't think Pelosi is responsible. But the two Congress people who

have oversight over the Capitol Police do have some explaining to do, IMO. Somebody should have checked on readiness.

[Appropriation Committee Chairs have changed since 1/6.]

But, even if the Capitol Police had all called in sick, that doesn’t excuse insurrectionists.
