The week after the attack on the Capitol, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joins Hillary for a candid, no-holds-barred conversation. In a detailed firsthand account of what Speaker Pelosi and her House members experienced that day, she shares how she felt when she learned what was happening, her takeaways from her call with Vice President Pence amidst the chaos and violence, and why she was so determined to resume congressional business the second it was safe to do so. They also talk about what needs to happen to ensure that those responsible are held to account, how we got here, and what a new administration can do to address the many challenges facing the country.
Nancy Pelosi is the 52nd Speaker of the House (and first woman to serve as Speaker), recently re-elected for the 117th Congress. Nancy has represented California’s 12th Congressional District in San Francisco for more than 30 years.
