On Thursday night, as many as nine staffers for Stephen Colbert were arrested for breaching the U.S. Capitol.
They were there to do interviews and film footage for the show presumably, but didn’t have the proper authorization to be there. The most ironic part? They were allegedly let in by someone who works for Congressman Adam Schiff.
You could not make this up. No one would believe you.
Will these people be held in solitary confinement without being charged for a year and a half? Isn’t that the established punishment for entering the Capitol now?
FOX News reports:
US Capitol Police arrest Stephen Colbert staffers at House office building, charged with illegal entry
The U.S. Capitol Police arrested a group of staffers with CBS’s “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” after they allegedly illegally entered a U.S. House of Representatives office building on Thursday night, Fox News has learned.
The group of nine people were arrested in the Longworth House Office Building after being escorted out of the Jan. 6 committee hearing earlier in the day because they did not have proper press credentials, according to sources.
The same group resurfaced later on Thursday night after the Capitol complex was closed to public visitors and Fox News is told that they took videos and pictures around the offices of two Republican members of Congress, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy R-Calif. and Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo.

People have thoughts about this:
It’s time to seize Adam Schiff’s phone records to learn more about his role in the insurrection and the attempted attack on Lauren Boebert perpetrated by the coup plotters he illegally allowed into the building. https://t.co/2WCelWfiGp

Stephen Colbert must be arrested, thrown in solitary confinement, and prosecuted for insurrection against America for orchestrating the assault on our capitol.
