A letter was sent to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday signed by many ranking House members, asking her to answer "many important questions" about security-decisions in the time leading up to the Capitol riots on Jan. 6.

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, House Administration Committee Ranking Member Rodney Davis  House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer and House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan were the four who signed the letter.

According to Fox News, the letter references a security decision made on Jan. 4 that the National Guard should not be called in pre-emptively because of concerns about the "optics" of such a thing.

The letter also references a "very heavy-handed and tightly controlled approach to House operations that has been exerted by yourself, your staff, and an army of appointed House officials."
