More details have emerged on the nine staffers of the Colbert show arrested on Capitol Hill.
The group was charged with unlawful entry.
Fox News reports:
The group reportedly banged on doors of several Republican offices – including that of Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, Jim Jordan of Ohio and Lauren Boebert of Colorado — as they allegedly filmed a skit for Colbert’s “Late Show” program that was to center around the January 6 hearings.
Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Ill, the ranking member on the House Committee on Administration – which has jurisdiction over the Capitol Police and House chamber operations – told “Jesse Watters Primetime” Friday he will demand answers when Congress returns to session next week.
Davis noted the Colbert group visited the same buildings as those on Rep. Loudermilk’s,heavily-scrutinized January 5, 2021 tour.
Earlier in the day Thursday, the Colbert group was milling around an area of the Cannon House Office Building being used for media staging during the January 6 Committee hearings, after reportedly being helped in by members of Schiff’s team.
Davis said they were later ejected by members of the press, who had them escorted out.
“It’s my understanding they were offered a way back into the House office buildings by a staffer for [Auchincloss],” he added, as they traveled to Longworth, where Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert’s office is located.
