**BREAKING** Mikie Sherrill says Congress members gave 'reconnaissance' tours day before Capitol raid

Rep. Mikie Sherrill, during a live webcast Tuesday evening, said she witnessed some members of Congress leading people through the Capitol on Jan. 5 in what she termed a "reconnaissance for the next day" when insurrectionists took part in a deadly siege on the legislative branch.

During the Facebook Live, Sherrill (D-11, Montclair) addressed her constituents to explain why she voted for a resolution to ask Vice President Mike Pence to remove President Donald Trump from office by invoking the 25th Amendment. That measure passed late Tuesday 223-205, but Pence had notified House Speaker Nancy Pelosi earlier in the day that he would not comply with the request.

That makes it likely that the House will, for the second time, impeach Trump on Wednesday. Sherill said she intends to support an article of impeachment against Trump for "incitement of insurrection."

The Feds, when they interview the people they have arrested, will be asking them questions around who helped them.

I suspect that they are going to need cast iron evidence of Congressmen and women aiding and abetting the rioters, because these are powerful people, with powerful backers that the Feds are dealing with.

Several years ago I was at the Hyatt Capitol Hill for work and there was this schmucky Arizona congressman trying to pick up the woman sitting next to me at the bar by discussing his disdain for healthcare and contempt for Congress . (This was in the evening after the work related activities were over.) Anyway I was checking my messages with an Arizona friend to see if it was one of the seditionists, and sadly it was Trent Franks. BUT my friend said in the messages that Biggs was the biggest asshole in Congress. Clearly she was prescient.

This really does stink.

by Anonymousreply 7101/13/2021

I believe they were allowed to have guests for the swearing in which happened only days before the attack. The newbies in congress had more leeway with the restrictions too. So this occasion would have allowed them to also give tours maybe welcome their biggest donors and supporters to celebrate. There certainly would have been a lot of people coming to the building for the swearing in ceremony that would have given cover to anyone wanting to give someone a 'tour'

by Anonymousreply 7201/13/2021

The CCTV cameras show the most indicting information of sitting congressmen and / or their staffers giving "tours." Preliminary reports (unconfirmed) of the feeds show the following Reps:

Rep Louie Gohmert GOP-TX

Rep Jim Jordan GOP-OH

Rep Matt Gaetz GOP-FL

Rep Lauren Boebert GOP-CO

Marjorie Taylor Greene GOP-GA

Paul Gosar GOP-AZ

Andy Biggs GOP-AZ

No word about staffers. I can't imagine the Reps didn't delegate this!

Again, info is not confirmed yet.

If Paul Gosar, Mo Brooks and Andy Biggs were involved somehow then they need to be immediately removed from Congress and charged, tried in a court of law and punished to the full extent of the law. (+ any of R73's list). There is obviously a lot of investigation to be done yet.

IF TRUE - facilitating the MAGA terrorists was TREASON.

I suspect the allegations are true because we have all seen them on social media and in the news media screeching MAGA/stolen election/fight epitaphs.

R87 -- Thanks. FYI, the source of this information is the CEO of a consulting firm dedicated to emerging technologies. He founded 3 businesses. Was employed as a director at three Fortune 500 corporations. Strategist for over 480 companies. He is a Programmer and Product/Service/Software Developer.

And, like so many people of his age, he was originally a journalist for Knight-Ridder, back in the day when it was a good newspaper organization.

I cannot vouch for what he's saying. However, it's interesting to note that Mikie Sherrill's info first appeared in an NJ publication a few days before it was reported widely. Ali's information was posted on Twitter, again a few days before it was reported widely.

There are currently lots of rumors floating around DC. IT WILL BE INTERESTING IF THE EVENTS OF 1/5 WILL BE CLARIFIED OR SIMPLY SWEPT UNDER THE RUG.

I don't think anything is going to happen Inauguration Day that'll prevent Biden from taking office. Hope I am right.
