Thursday, U.S. Capitol Police arrested three employees of late-night talk show host Stephen Colbert after they allegedly attempted to illegally enter the Longworth House Office building.
According to a Fox News report, the group was allegedly apprehended in the Longworth House Office Building after it was closed to the public. Fox News said that they took photos and recordings near the offices of California Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Colorado Republican Representative Lauren Boebert.
“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. Responding officers observed seven individuals, unescorted and without Congressional ID, in a sixth-floor hallway,” Capitol Police said in a statement to Fox News. “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.”
“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,” they told the media outlet.
When sessions restart, Illinois Republican Representative Rodney Davis will allegedly demand answers, he told Fox News anchor Jesse Waters.
