Previously unseen footage shows Capitol rioters shouting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s name outside her office shortly after she was evacuated from the building on January 6, 2021.

The footage shows the rioters repeatedly chanting “Nancy, Nancy” outside her office in the Capitol. The video was taken minutes after Pelosi was evacuated from the building by Capitol police, ABC News’ “Good Morning America” reported.

It also shows a rioter shouting: “All we want is Pelosi.”

The footage, captured by documentary filmmaker Nick Quested, was obtained by the House committee investigating the riot, “GMA” reported. Quested shared hours of footage with the committee, the program said.

Rioters entered Pelosi’s office during the attack, and her staffers were forced to hide in a conference room, where they barricaded the doors with filing cabinets.

One rioter was photographed sitting at her desk, and is accused of leaving a note on her desk that called her a “bitch.” He was also pictured holding a letter that appeared to belong to her outside the Capitol later that day.

Pelosi was frequently attacked by Donald Trump throughout his presidency. Much of the mob that stormed the Capitol on January 6 were Trump supporters who had attended a rally where he had spoken, and were looking to disrupt the certification of Joe Biden as president.

Pelosi said last year that she would “never forgive” the rioters for the “trauma” they caused congressional staff members.

She also said that she initially wanted to stand her ground before relenting to being escorted to an undisclosed location.

The House committee investigating the riot is set to hold its first public hearing at 8 p.m. ET Thursday.
