Last month, staffers for Stephen Colbert were arrested in one of the buildings at the Copitol. They were there to film a comedy bit and tried to harass Republicans in the process.
They weren’t supposed to be there and that’s the bottom line. At the time, many wondered if they would suffer a fate similar to the Trump supporters of January 6th.
Now we know. Of course they won’t. All of the charges against them are being dropped. It must be nice to be a Democrat.
FOX News reports:
Charges dropped against Stephen Colbert staffers who were arrested for unlawful entry in House office building
The “Colbert 9” were cleared of “unlawful entry” charges Monday after staffers for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” were caught recording comedy skits inside a House Office Building after hours without permission in June.
A statement from the U.S. Attorney’s office read: “After a comprehensive review of all of the evidence and the relevant legal authority, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia has determined that it cannot move forward with misdemeanor charges of unlawful entry against the nine individuals who were arrested on June 16, 2022 at the Longworth Office Building.
The individuals, who entered the building on two separate occasions, were invited by Congressional staffers to enter the building in each instance and were never asked to leave by the staffers who invited them, though, members of the group had been told at various points by the U.S. Capitol Police that they were supposed to have an escort.
The Office would be required to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that these invited guests were guilty of the crime of unlawful entry because their escort chose to leave them unattended. We do not believe it is probable that the Office would be able to obtain and sustain convictions on these charges.
The defendants no longer will be required to appear for a scheduled hearing in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia on July 20, 2022.”
Nothing is fair anymore.

The Biden DOJ will not prosecute Steve Colbert's crew for the exact same crime Trump supporters have been bankrupted, thrown in solitary confinement, and prosecuted as terrorists.

Nothing is going to change until the Democrats are voted out of office.
