What did Pelosi and McConnell know about the planned attack on the U.S. Capitol before the House indicted President Trump for inciting violence?
President Trump was blamed for the siege on the U.S. Capitol last Wednesday, but the FBI confirmed the attack was planned days in advance.
Investigative reporter John Solomon dropped a bomb on Wednesday night and said DC police denied his FOIA request for records relating to their investigation into the siege of the U.S. Capitol.
DC Police said the disclosure of the records would be “ personally embarrassing ” and an invasion of privacy to release the documents.

“We are going to fight for these documents, but something tells me that what is in these documents has a very very great relevance to what happened on the Hill and the question I am asking myself is to know what Nancy Pelosi knew, what Mitch McConnell knew in advance about these threats. John Solomon told former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens. “If they didn’t know then, it’s police intelligence failure. If they knew there was something they didn’t tell us before we got into this indictment.
Solomon said the FBI, NYPD and USCP had prior knowledge of plans for violence on the U.S. Capitol, including information threatening to kill police officers.
If it was a planned attack, you cannot accuse the president of instigating a spontaneous attack when it had been planned a few days before.
John Solomon also said inside sources leaked maps, internal documents helping rioters enter and navigate the Capitol building.
The US prosecutor is bringing a conspiracy case which is further evidence that the siege was planned.
