Pelosi likens Jan. 6 Capitol riot to 9/11

During a speech in London on Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi compared the Jan. 6 US Capitol riot to 9/11, saying that one was an assault on democracy from within.

Pelosi said 9/11 was an “assault from the outside,” while the Capitol riot was an “assault from within.”

“Horrible in both cases. What had happened to our democracy on January 6 was horrible,” Pelosi said.

The House Speaker went on to say a “cult” is hijacking the Republican party.

“I would say to my Republican friends – and I do have some – take back your party, the Republican party. The Grand Old Party has made tremendous contributions to our country founded by Lincoln. Don’t let your party be hijacked by a cult – essentially, that is what is happening.”

“This is not conservative. This is radical right-wing, off the spectrum, anti-governance, and if you are anti-governance it is very difficult to govern.”
