House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called the Wednesday gyrocopter landing at the Capitol “stunning” at her weekly news conference Thursday, deferring to the investigators when asked about specifics and saying lawmakers “certainly need answers.” “We have to subject what we do the the harshest scrutiny as to how does this enable people to enjoy fine employment, legislate in the Capitol, but nonetheless ensure their safety,” Pelosi said. The gyrocopter incident followed a suicide at the West Terrace of the Capitol that occurred over the weekend.
