Popular Fox News host Tucker Carlson accused Stephen Colbert’s production crew of committing “insurrection” after 9 staffers were arrested by U.S. Capitol Police after they illegally entered a Congressional office building Thursday night.
“Last night, producers from Stephen Colbert’s show on CBS committed insurrection at the United States Capitol,” Carlson said.
“Adam Schiff illegally gave producers from CBS access to the Capitol and then the crew, which includes the show’s senior producer, director, comedian and writer, remained in the House, Longworth House office building after hours and the point of them being there was for them to harass sitting members of congress,” he added.
