Mikie Sherrill says unidentified lawmakers led ‘reconnaissance’ tours ahead of Capitol attack (yahoo.com)

From that article -

Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-N.J.) said Tuesday that she witnessed colleagues escorting people through the Capitol on Jan. 5 for what she described as "reconnaissance" ahead of the next day's violent insurrection that left five dead.

In a 13-minute Facebook video billed as an address to her constituents about the House's efforts to hold President Donald Trump accountable for inciting the riot, Sherrill included the allegation as part of a call to hold Trump's allies in Congress accountable as well.


Impressive CV and service provided to this country -

Rebecca Michelle Sherrill[1][2] (/ˈmaɪki/; born January 19, 1972)[3] is an American politician, former U.S. Navy helicopter pilot, and former federal prosecutor[4] serving as the U.S. Representative for New Jersey's 11th congressional district since 2019. The district includes a swath of suburban and exurban areas west of New York City. A member of the Democratic Party, Sherrill was elected on November 6, 2018, defeating Republican Jay Webber.[2][5]

Unidentified lawmakers. Cool story
They have only been reported at this point- I'll take her credibility over someone of your limited skills and patriotism, Probably Deranged.

Watch and Learn, Kiddo.

Many I gotta start charging your leaching azz for all this free knowledge.

EDIT: For her or anyone else to publicly identify them at this point, would be wrong and maybe even libelous (?).

The proper authorities will determine their fates.

Bear in mind, she's sworn an oath for her country three times now: Naval officer, US Attorney and US Rep. Highly unlikely this is a fabrication on her end.

I would think there are security cameras in the building, take some work but matching those getting tours with people that stormed the building would certainly add to or refute her accusations
I would bet everything in my possession the FBI is reviewing the past couple months worth of video.

If it's there, they'll find it.

If its also true they took panic buttons out of offices, there will be evidence. And they will find it.

But I'm going to need proof before I believe members of congress had anything to do with setting this up.

Mr So eager to say Trump is no threat to anything.
Such a stooge. I said to throw Trump into jail and what’s more, this thread isn’t even about Trump. That is all you lefties yell about. Come up with something new.

Someone claims members of Congress premeditated and planned out what happened last Wednesday and no one even needs proof -hang em’ high. Such a stooge.

I think she signed an affidavit, which we all have learned, is the strongest measure of truth possible.

Seems like it should be pretty easy to prove with the technology at the capital. I would assume they could go back to the date these tours took place and use the same facial recognition software to match it will the people who were trespassing.

I remember when spoofin was pretty sure that Tony Bobulinski had the goods on Hunter and "the big guy" too. He was so eager to believe that Biden was going to be implicated....and that savior Trump was going to have four more years as supreme leader.

@howeda7 has lost his mind in this thread. He admits he didn’t watch yet is yelling about how it is all lies. Here is a guy that was personally involved in this, on the TO line in the emails, a veteran, an already wealthy businessman not being paid, who has emails, texts, phones, and recordings - that he has shared with the FBI, and Howie is yelling about Russia misinformation and how no one cares and other unrelated items. Howie is so pot committed on this topic that reality no longer plays a role. We should pin his posts here.

18,000 posts defending Don and they refuse to focus on the 15 where you mildly rebuke him. Where's the fairness?!?!
Again, it would be great if you lefties could tell the difference between someone ripping you and defending Trump, but here we are again.

Now, wanting proof Congressmen scoped out the Capitol and planned last Wednesday before showing OUTRAGE - “defending Trump”. calling you out for posting (yet another) BS Tweet about DT posting videos asking for more violence - “defending Trump”. Calling DT a POS and saying he should go to jail - “mildly rebuking”. Such sheep.

Your just fun to f with.

That said, no assumption about Trump and his supporters, in the last 4 years, has been bad enough.

Getting back to the OP -

remember - public tours of the Capitol have been suspended because of Covid.
For members of the public to even get in the Capitol, they have to be escorted in by a member of Congress or a congressional staffer. And that is supposed to be done only when the visitors have specific business to discuss with a member of Congress. Presumably, there are logs of who enters the building.

Sherrill said that she and other members and staffers saw groups of people being escorted around the complex - and they believe that some of the people who were there on the 5th were part of the group that entered the Capitol on the 6th. And Sherrill is not the only one - something like 30 members of Congress or staffers signed a letter calling for an investigation.

Sherrill also talked about how, when she was on active duty as a helicopter pilot, she was trained to be observant about possible security risks. that is why she said these visitors caught her eye - because of the sheer number of people coming through the building seemed unusual.

Good points - thanks

It's not like it's Mo (I aint' no Mel) Brooks encouraging a mob to go "take names and kick some ass" whilst he and Rudy went to the Trump hotel to drain a fifth of the Blue Label and chuckle at the TV regarding the results. She was excoriating them based on her training & experience, which to do that line of would be extensive.
