Rep. Rogers: No reason for fencing around Capitol
UPDATED 10:30 AM PT – Sunday, March 28, 2021
Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) called out the show on Capitol Hill being put on by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
In an interview on Friday, Rogers blasted Pelosi’s insistence to keep the fencing up around the Capitol building and forcing National Guardsmen to stay on duty there.
The Alabama Republican said the move to keep the razor wire between Americans and the Capitol building was strategic.
“That’s all theater that Nancy Pelosi is trying to create the impression that Republicans are dangerous and Trump was the cause of all of this. It’s silly,” Rogers stated.
Rogers added Pelosi is “out of control” as she is still making members of Congress walk through a metal detector on their way in, and taking $5,000 out of their paychecks automatically if they fail to comply.
