Political commentator Ana Navarro made a false claim on “The View,” stating that Republican Rep. Troy Nehls held a gun to Capitol incursion individuals.

Later, she retracted her statement, acknowledging her mistake.

Nehls responded, demanding a public apology and hinting at potential legal action. (Trending: First Moon Mission In 50 Years Blasts Off)

“That’s in the well of the House. That’s a Republican congressman holding a gun to the insurrectionists who were about to break in, who were coming for them,” Navarro said.

“How those Republicans can then go and endorse and support and campaign for Donald Trump, who was the cause for that insurrection, who incited it and promoted it?”

“How they can pretend it was tourists touring the Capitol? How they can go around … calling them hostages?” she pressed.

“How dare he play with that word! How dare they try to whitewash history!”

“I misspoke,” she later said.

“I said that a Republican congressman had been holding the gun. Actually, we don’t know if it was a Secret Service [agent] or a police officer.”

“The two Republican congressmen were behind the guy — the law enforcement officer — holding the gun.”

“Today, the dishonest View said I was holding a gun on January 6th,” Nehls wrote.

“This is a false statement and made with RECKLESS disregard for the truth. I look forward to a public apology from Ms. Navarro and speaking with their attorneys.”

This incident follows a previous controversy involving Navarro and former co-host Meghan McCain, leading to threats of legal action.
