Rep. Troy Nehls, R-Texas has been outspoken about the injustice of the January 6th committee—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s baby. Nehls has also been outspoken on the death of Ashli Babbitt, the veteran shot and killed during the January 6th Capitol protest. Now, Nehls says that Pelosi has ‘weaponized the Capitol Police’ in order to ‘silence, intimidate, and destroy him’.
Pelosi’s committee, not to be confused with the active indictments against people who broke the law on January 6th, is a sort of witchhunt that seems to only serve as a way to connect people to the protest. People, who have all been outspoken against Democrats, like Pelosi. It’s a sort of political hitlist, in my opinion, and Nehls says he’s exposing Pelosi and the committee:
“I’m being targeted right now. And I believe that Nancy Pelosi is weaponizing the U.S. Capitol Police to investigate me, to try to silence me, intimidate me, and quite honestly, to destroy me,” Nehls explained.
Nehls addressed the supposed ‘evidence’ found in his office:
“I mean, absolutely silly, absolutely ludicrous. Why were the Capitol Police inside my office investigating me? And I was under criminal investigation.”
According to Nehls, the Capitol Police claimed that his door was open and that it was ‘suspicious’. Adding that when they went to investigate they discovered his whiteboard where Nehls says he jots his thoughts about plans for future bills and agendas.
REP. TROY NEHLS: I’ve exposed [Jan. 6] and I’ve been very vocal about it. I’ve been vocal, too, even on your program a few months back about the death of Ashli Babbitt and questioning why Lt. Byrd’s investigation did not go to a grand jury. So this really doesn’t surprise me. Quite honestly, I’m being targeted right now. And I believe that Nancy Pelosi is weaponizing the U.S. Capitol Police to investigate me, to try to silence me, intimidate me, and quite honestly, to destroy me.
Well, the claim is that they discovered one of my office doors wide open on a Saturday afternoon. The officer entered my office and said, you know, to check to see if anybody was there [who] shouldn’t be there and saw suspicious writings on my whiteboard, where is where I draft my legislative proposals. Couple days later, I’ve got these secret agents — secret agents from the Capitol Police — knocking on my office door, questioning my staff — one of my staffers — as to the language on that board. Why was there body armor written on your board? Interrogating this staffer, asking him questions related to a handwritten map of the Rayburn Office Building, which is an office building for members of Congress and the “X” on it. I mean, absolutely silly, absolutely ludicrous. Why were the Capitol Police inside my office investigating me? And I was under criminal investigation. The chief of police, Manger, … he’s downplaying this, but I’m telling you they’re coming after anyone [who] has a dissenting point of view, anybody [who] doesn’t agree with them.
