Fox News has reported that employees for the Colbert Show were arrested for illegally entering the Capitol Thursday night.
According to Jesse Watters, Adam Schiff has been “implicated” in the breach as one who may be responsible for letting them in.
Chad Pegram shared a thread on the situation:
“Fox is told the people were arrested in the Longworth House Office Building. The group was in the Cannon House Office Building earlier in the day trying to get interviews around the time of the 1/6 committee hearing.”
“However, USCP shooed them away because they did not have proper press credentials.”
“However, the group surfaced later that night after the Capitol complex was closed to the public Fox is told they took pictures and video around the offices of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Lauren Boebert (R-CO).”
“They were unescorted and arrested and charged with illegal entry. They were arrested near Boebert’s office. They were released overnight.”
“USCP have issued the following statement: ‘On June 16, 2022, at approximately 8:30 p.m., U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) received a call for a disturbance in the Longworth House Office Building.'”
“USCP: ‘Responding officers observed seven individuals, unescorted and without Congressional ID, in a sixth-floor hallway.'”
“USCP: ‘The building was closed to visitors, and these individuals were determined to be a part of a group that had been directed by the USCP to leave the building earlier in the day.'”
“USCP: ‘They were charged with Unlawful Entry. This is an active criminal investigation, and may result in additional criminal charges after consultation with the U.S. Attorney.'”
