On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., issued a directive ordering Congressional members and staff to wear special “well-fitted” super masks. Then she issued a directive telling Capitol Police to arrest those who do not follow her order.
Naturally, this prompted a sharp rebuke from Republican House members.
According to Breitbart:

In a Capitol Police Bulletin she specified “all USCP personnel must wear a mask at all times when in interior spaces throughout the Capitol Grounds.” Additionally, she directed officers who work on the House side of the Capitol to “enforce” the policy on staff and visitors.
However, it noted that applies to members, any of the defiers should not be arrest but “reported to the House Sergeant at Arms’ office” to be dealt with. The order states visitors and staff who refuse to comply with her orders, after being warned once, and refuses “comply or leave the premises after being asked to do so would be subject to an arrest for Unlawful Entry.”
The directive follows her past orders on vaccinations for all on Capitol Hill.
Responding to her abusive order, Republicans said they will not comply:
In 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.”

This is so out of control. Pelosi is massively drunk on power, obsessed with control, and hypocritical and partisan beyond belief.
This isn’t just some mask mandate either. The enforcement measures are absurd.

Nancy Pelosi has lost her damn mind, arresting staff and visitors for not wearing masks?
This is the People’s House, not her House.
Let me make it easy for you, Speaker Pelosi, my office, and my visitors won’t comply — have an issue with that? Come see me. https://t.co/5EoqXN7G65

This is INSANE. 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. https://t.co/CgiSuNvE8c

Here are the facts, @SpeakerPelosi:
✅85% of House Members are vaccinated
✅70% of the Congressional workforce is vaccinated
✅Transmission rate on the Hill is .5%
✅Senate has no mask mandate
🚨Pelosi's political theater is only aimed at distracting from her radical agenda. https://t.co/jAw9giM0YL

To be clear: Pelosi is directing police to ARREST vaccinated people who aren’t wearing masks.
This isn’t about science—it’s about power and control. https://t.co/XMXxI0Dw2D

This is insanity. Threatening arrest for not wearing a mask is unlawful and tyrannical! https://t.co/pUo3zkb632

Pelosi’s arrest order comes after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) delivered an impassioned speech on the House floor on Wednesday, in which he specifically targeted Pelosi for her blatant “hypocrisy” after she “broke her own rules” following a new mask mandate for the U.S. House of Representatives.
“Today, the Speaker, who didn’t know even know her own science and said names to people, broke her own rules,” McCarthy said, referring to when Pelosi called him a moron. “Twice today I saw the Speaker in a crowded room without a mask, less than 24 hours after imposing the mask mandate…”
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) noted that “in Biden-Pelosi’s America the maskless are arrested while the looters, shoplifters, and border crossers go free.”
