‘Reconnaissance Tours’: Congresswoman Claims Colleagues Colluded with Capitol Stormers

The claims come as the FBI and DOJ announced that they are pursuing conspiracy and sedition charges for those involved in the breach.

As we continue to put distance between ourselves and the events of January 6th, law enforcement has been hard at work attempting to fully understand the who’s and why’s of the violent uprising itself.  And, the more we learn, the more disturbing the storming of the Capitol becomes.

The FBI and DOJ have stated that they have already opened over 170 case files in regard to the events, and that several arrests have been made in the 6 days since the incident.  In addition, the agencies have begun investigating possible acts of conspiracy and sedition, suggesting that some semblance of organization was occurring behind the scenes prior to the breach at the Capitol.

Now, a member of the House of Representatives is claiming that some of her colleagues helped show the insurrectionists around the Capitol on January 5th, a day prior to the event.

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.

The claim comes as the FBI is warning of the potential of future, even more violent attacks on the Capitol, meant to interrupt the inauguration of Joe Biden on January 20th.
