The further we are removed from the turbulent events of January 6th, the more worrisome those events have become.
Investigations are ongoing and fervent six days after the fact, as authorities attempt to determine just how and why an enormous mob of angry Trump supporters were willing and able to breach the US Capitol – an action that has not occurred since 1814 when the British Army briefly took the building.
The FBI and DOJ have been suggesting that a vast conspiracy may have been at play, stating in a press conference on Tuesday that they are actively investigating what organization or financial backing may have been provided to the group.
Now, on Congresswoman is suggesting that some of her colleagues gave “reconnaissance” tours to rioters the day before the attack on the Capitol.
Rep. Mikie Sherrill, D-N.J., said Tuesday that she witnessed some lawmakers leading people through the Capitol the day before the riot in what looked like a “reconnaissance” tour, and said members will be held accountable.
Sherrill made her comments during a roughly 13-minute video on Facebook, where she addressed her constituents about the steps that Congress will take to hold President Trump and “those responsible” accountable for allegedly inciting the riot.
“I also intend to see that those members of Congress who abetted him, those members of Congress who had groups coming through the capitol that I saw on Jan. 5 for reconnaissance for the next day. Those members of Congress who incited the violent crowd. Those members of Congress that attempted to help our president undermine our democracy, I’m going see that they’re held accountable,” Sherrill said.
Sherrill has not named names, but there is little doubt that her comments will be thoroughly investigated by authorities.
