Washington, DC — Today, Congressman Troy E. Nehls (R-TX-22) released a statement on the one-year anniversary of January 6th:

“One year ago today, we saw the total breakdown of Capitol security, allowing hundreds of protestors to infiltrate the building and cross one of America’s most sacrosanct grounds,” said Congressman Nehls. “It was the first event of its kind in American history and a black eye for the country and for the American people. It should have never happened. The intelligence reports were there and Capitol leadership chose not to act on them. Nancy Pelosi had every chance to impartially investigate the security failures of the day, but she didn’t. Instead, she used the hyper-partisan January 6th commission as a weapon against President Trump and chose to take no responsibility for her failures to protect the Capitol grounds. One year later, there are still many questions to be answered. Why did Capitol Police not act on their intelligence findings on the days leading up to January 6th? Why was the deployment of the National Guard delayed? Why has this sham of a Congressional committee not investigated Ray Epps? I remain committed to uncovering the failures of January 6th and will do everything in my power to prevent it from ever happening again.”
