On Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blamed the Jan 6 U.S. Capitol attack on the 'intense partisan rancor that has enveloped Congress this year.' She said she will never forgive President Donald Trump, who she believes bears responsibility. “I'll never forgive the former President of the United States and his lackeys, and his bullies that he sent to the Capitol, for the trauma that was exerted on our staff,” the California Democrat said. “The way it traumatized them, it was frightening.” [tweet_embed] December 13, 2021[/tweet_embed] Pelosi was responding to a reporter’s question about “the breakdown of comity in Congress and the tensions between the two parties.” Earlier Wednesday, a group of Muslim workers sent an open letter to party leaders criticizing Rep. Lauren Boebert, a Colorado Republican who called Rep. Ilhan Omar a member of “the Jihad Squad.” The letter was signed, with initials only, by hundreds of staffers, 50 of them Muslim, with initials only. Democrats are considering a solution to denounce Boebert’s remarks and perhaps deprive her of her committee assignments. The Muslim aides wrote that “unchecked harassment” of Omar, a Minnesota Democrat and one of three Muslim members of Congress, has left them feeling unsafe and unwelcome.

Pelosi did not address the letter instantly, nor did she tell whether the House will vote to penalize Boebert. Instead, Pelosi returned to Jan 6 and the long-term trauma she believes was imposed on those in the U.S. Capitol. Hundreds of violent protesters pushed past police and metal barricades and broke into the building. The mob sent lawmakers and staff running for safety, and many were concerned for their lives. “That’s something that you cannot just say, well, we'll do legislation to make sure this or that doesn't happen again. You cannot erase that,” Pelosi said. House Democrats and several Republicans voted to impeach Trump over the Capitol attack, claiming he provoked protesters by suggesting Congress was wrongfully approving the election in Joe Biden's favor. Trump was acquitted of all charges. He denies causing the attack but has not stopped pressing the election fraud in Joe Biden's favor. Democrats continue to seek retribution upon Boebert. [tweet_embed] December 13, 2021[/tweet_embed] Rep. Ayanna Pressley, a Massachusetts Democrat, prepared a resolution that would censure Boebert’s comments and take away her committee assignments. “Representative Lauren Boebert should be removed from her committee assignments in light of conduct she has exhibited,” the resolution reads.
