Social media users claim House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "staged" the January 6, 2021 attack at the US Capitol by rejecting security assistance and hiring a camera crew working with her daughter, a documentary filmmaker, to record her response as the violence played out. This is false; the attack unfolded on live television and has resulted in hundreds of criminal charges, nor did Pelosi hire a camera crew or block the deployment of extra National Guard troops to the building.
