Andrew Clyde must pay $15,000 for bypassing the metal detectors at the behest of Dem. Rep. Nancy Pelosi due to January 6 Capitol incursion, twice. It is a Pelosi’s win, due to the new rule, after the first offense, the offender must pay $5,000, and after the second, $10,000.

In her statement in February, Pelosi said that the fines are against Clyde and Louie Gohmert.
“Many House Republicans began disrespecting our heroes by refusing to adhere to basic precautions keeping members of our congressional community safe — including by dodging metal detectors, physically pushing past police, and even attempting to bring firearms into the chamber.”
“It is beyond comprehension why any member would refuse to adhere to these simple, common-sense steps to keep this body safe.”
Now, everything is clear. Clyde said that he wasn’t armed. He intentionally brought Pelosi into court to discuss the constitutionality of the order.
“I did that so we would have legal standing to take the case to federal court, and that’s exactly what I’m going to do,”
“And I’m all teed up to do that. People have to stand for the Constitution. And if I have to get fined in order to give me a legal standing to do that, then I’ll be fined.”
According to the GOP Representative, everything was planned.
“It was all pre-planned to make sure that we had legal standing,”
Regarding Gohmert’s situation, the representative on February 5 stated that he had complied with the metal detectors, but also he had to go frivolously through it again.
“Yesterday, after complying with the metal detector screening, I was allowed to enter the House session where debate was occurring,”
“Knowing that I would soon be giving a speech, I stepped off the House floor to use the restroom right beside the Speaker’s lobby as I have done many times since the metal detectors have been installed.”
He refused to resubmit to screening!
“I explained to the Capitol Police officer. I had never been required to be screened again from the restroom immediately by the House floor. Since the metal detectors had been in place at the other doors. I said they had witnessed me walk the few feet to the men’s room, enter, and take the few steps back. No one ever mentioned or made that a requirement until yesterday,”
“Unlike in the movie ‘The Godfather,’ there are no toilets with tanks where one could hide a gun. So my reentry onto the House floor should have been a non-issue.” – concluded Gohmert.
