This must be some bad joke. The Capitol Police did not arrest insurrectionists but arrests a comedy show crew that permission to be on the premises. These people obviously have no sense of humor or sense of irony. What is the crime here? Don’t you realize how this leaves you open to criticism for showing a double standard? You can’t make the argument that the law is the law. They overstayed the right to be in the capitol building. But you didn’t arrested anyone on January 6th. It’s buffoonery:
Members of a production team for “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” were arrested earlier this week by police as they filmed a comedy segment at the US Capitol, in an incident that was used by prominent right-wing voices to assail the probe into the January 6 insurrection.
US Capitol Police said in a Friday statement that at approximately 8:30 p.m. Thursday, officers “observed seven individuals, unescorted and without Congressional ID, in a sixth-floor hallway” in the Longworth House Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington.
“The building was closed to visitors, and these individuals were determined to be a part of a group that had been directed by the USCP to leave the building earlier in the day,” the statement said.
Capitol Police said the individuals were charged with unlawful entry, adding that the matter is considered “an active criminal investigation” and that it “may result in additional criminal charges after consultation with the U.S. Attorney.”
