In never-before-seen footage from January 6, 2021, Nancy Pelosi can be seen discussing security and a plan to certify the election during a call with Mike Pence while the Capitol siege was underway.

CNN released the footage on Friday, captured by the House Speaker’s filmmaker daughter, Alexandra Pelosi.

The politicians, who were second and third in line for the presidency at the time, talk about a plan to certify the presidential election during the call, despite the Capitol grounds being packed of violent protesters who sought to halt proceedings and install Donald Trump as president for a second term.

“Well, we’re definitely not safe enough yet to go back,” Pelosi tells Pence in the clip. “They’re still even trying to break into the building and that’s not a sure thing because we’re trying to figure out how we can do this job today.”

Pelosi mentions Fort McNair, an army base in Washington, DC, as a potential “backup plan” location for the House and Senate to meet to complete the certification process. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer can be heard telling Pelosi that security forces indicated it would take several days to clear and clean the Capitol sufficiently for it to be usable.

Pence’s responses cannot be heard in the footage, but Pelosi can be heard saying the politicians in attendance were ‘unified’, with no ‘bias, nothing’, with the then vice president and stressed the importance complete the certification on the same day.

“I’m afraid you’re at the Capitol,” Pelosi tells Pence at the end of the clip.

In additional videos of never-before-seen footage, Pelosi told Pence not to let anyone know where he was hiding and told an aide she would punch Donald Trump if he arrived on Capitol grounds.

Representatives for Pelosi and Pence did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.

The North and South poles do not observe a time zone. Longitudes divide the globe into different time zones but since all lines of longitude converge at the poles, it means that the poles are technically located within all time zones simultaneously.
