In the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Former Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving recalled to House Admin how previous discussions with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her office factored in to his “blender of decision making,” according to three sources with direct knowledge of Irving’s talk with House Admin.

Pelosi’s office had previously impressed upon Irving that the National Guard was to remain off Capitol Grounds, Irving allegedly told House Admin. The discussions, which centered around “optics,” allegedly occurred in the months prior to the Jan. 6 riot, during a time when deployment of federal resources for civil unrest was unpopular with Democrats and many members of Congress.

The article goes on to state the following:

The three sources who confirmed the discussion to the Daily Caller did so under the condition of anonymity, citing the fear of putting a chill on further witnesses to how the security situation unfolded Jan. 6. The discussion, if accurate, raises questions as to what role Pelosi’s office had in the security failures that resulted in the resignations of both Irving and former Chief of Capitol Police Steven Sund. Pelosi’s Deputy Chief of Staff Drew Hammill did not deny the allegations in a statement to the Daily Caller.

“The Speaker’s Office has made it clear publicly and repeatedly that our office was not consulted or contacted concerning any request for the National Guard ahead of January 6th. That has been confirmed by former Sergeant at Arms Irving in sworn testimony before Senate committees. The Speaker expects security professionals to make security decisions and to briefed about those decisions,” Hammill said.

Hammill continued, “It is our understanding that Committee on House Administration Ranking Republican Member Davis was briefed in advance of January 6th about security preparedness, but took no action to address any security concerns that he might have had.”

The Sergeant at Arms (SAA) is chosen by the Speaker of the House and it one of three officials that can vote with the Capitol Police Board. Irving did testify recently about the Jan. 6 riots which his testimony now brings additional questions to light on the precise timing of events that day.

During his testimony Irving said he had a request from Sund to deploy the National Guard after 2 p.m. Republican Sen. Josh Hawley posed the question to Irving, did he need to run the request “up the chain of command,” Irving replied “no.”

Several reports cite the timing of events that day. It is reported that Pelosi’s office confirmed the National Guard to be deployed around 1:43 p.m. Sund reports sending the request to Irving around 1:09 p.m. Irving says he was contacted after 2:00 p.m. which raises major questions about these reported time differences.

In the article a source with the Daily Caller said, “If you believe Irving’s timeline that he testified under oath to, how could he ask for permission from the Speaker 20 minutes before he got the request? Also if you believe his sworn testimony that he never had to run the request up the chain, why did the Speaker’s office confirm he did just that?”
