Congressman: 1/6 Participant Wasn’t Doing Recon On Capitol Tour

1 0 1

As the January 6 committee holds more televised hearings this week, it has put Congressman Barry Loudermilk on the hot seat about a tour he led of the Capitol complex the day before the attack on the Capitol.

On Wednesday, the committee released footage of the hourslong tour, which took place even though the building was closed to visitors that day. In it, a man appears to snap pictures on his phone of a stairwell and hallways — not generally photo-worthy locations. In the latter half of the video, the same man, who has not been identified, is shown outside the Capitol on January 6. Speaking to the person filming him, he makes violent threats against Democratic lawmakers including Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “We’re coming to take you out,” he says, while holding a flagpole fashioned into a weapon. It’s unclear whether he ended up storming the Capitol or stayed outside the grounds.
