House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) demands Congressional members and staff must wear special “well-fitted” masks, and then she ordered the U.S. Capitol Police to arrest the non-compliant.
Pelosi specified, “all USCP personnel must wear a mask at all times when in interior spaces throughout the Capitol Grounds,” in a Capitol Police Bulletin. Additionally, she directed officers working on the House side of the Capitol to “enforce” the policy on staff and visitors.
While it applies to members, any not wearing masks should not be arrested but “reported to the House Sergeant at Arms’ office” to be dealt with. The order states staff and visitors either “comply or leave the premises after being asked to do so would be subject to an arrest for Unlawful Entry.”
“If staffers, who are accompanying a Member, refuses to wear a mask, that refusal should be noted and reported to a supervisor who will, in turn, refer the matter to the House Sergeant at Arms,” the noticed stated.
Breitbart News previously reported on Capitol’s Attending Physician, Brian Monahan, newer “guidance” for members are staff to wear special ‘well-fitted” super masks:
The Capitol’s Attending Physician, Brian Monahan, Tuesday said he is now advising Congressional members and staff is to wear a “well-fitted” super mask while inside if “other individuals are present.”
He wants the special mask worn everywhere by everyone: The House Office Buildings, the Halls of the House, and House Committee Meetings. He noted that the masks are now required everywhere, and masks will be provided to those without. Individuals who do not obey will receive fines.
Interestingly enough, one of the masks Monahan is suggesting to use is the Chinese version of the American medical mask know as N95, but, as Forbes pointed out, nearly 70 percent of Chinese KN95 masks tested last year did not meet U.S. standards for filtration efficiency.
Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) tweeted pictures of the USCP Bulletin, “today’s edition of Pelosi’s abuse of power, Capitol Police have been directed to arrest staff and visitors to comply with her mask mandate for vaccinated individuals.”
“For Members, they advise not arresting but ‘reporting Members to SAA for their failure to comply.’” she added.
“This is INSANE,” was Rep. Thomas Massie’s (R-KY) response to the news of Pelosi’s surrendering tweet.
“Might as well come into my office and arrest my entire staff. We are not wearing masks. I support the Capitol Hill Police, but the Chief of Police made a mistake here. The physician and the chief of police don’t have this authority,” he added.
The mask mandate previously given by Pelosi seen members of the media patrolling the halls of Congress reporting Republicans in violation.
