Capitol Police Officer Caroline Edwards mocked as ‘Nancy Pelosi’s dog’ during January 6 riot

Capitol Police Officer Caroline Edwards said she was mocked and insulted by the pro-Trump mob that attacked the US Capitol.

Mrs. Edwards testified about his experience in service during the riot for the House committee’s prime-time TV hearing on Jan.

She remembered being called a series of derogatory names.

“I’ve been called Nancy Pelosi’s dog, incompetent, hero and villain,” Edwards said. “I was called a traitor to my country, my oath and my Constitution.”

Mrs. Edwards, in her emotional testimony, added that she was a “proud American” who was protecting the nation.

Mrs. Edwards was one of the first officers injured in the riot. She hit her head on the Capitol steps after being knocked to the ground by protesters who were pushing through police barricades.

Mrs. Edwards testified alongside British documentary filmmaker Nick Quested, who was incorporated into the Proud Boys on the day of the riot.

The hearing marks the first of several by the committee on January 6 this month.

Committee members promised that the hearings will reveal the “mountain of evidence” that the riot was a coordinated plot unleashed by then-President Donald Trump.
