Posts revive US Capitol riot, Pelosi conspiracy theory

Published on 23/03/2023 at 21:55

Social media posts claim documents released under a law requiring public access to information show former House speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke by phone with Ray Epps, a man frequently mentioned in conspiracies surrounding the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol. This is false; there is no evidence such records exist and only the executive branch is legally required to comply with freedom of information requests.
