BREAKING: They’ve Been ARRESTED Inside Capitol Building [Developing]

U.S. Capitol Police arrested nine staffers from CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert for trespassing in the U.S. Capitol on Thursday.

In a statement, the Capitol Police explained that “On June 16, 2022, at approximately 8:30 p.m., U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) received a call for a disturbance in the Longworth House Office Building. Responding officers observed seven individuals, unescorted and without Congressional ID, in a sixth-floor hallway.”

Understandably, in a nation seized by political turmoil, security in the Capitol is paramount and the Capitol Police are on high alert.

The statement continued by saying, “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. They were charged with Unlawful Entry. This is an active criminal investigation, and may result in additional criminal charges after consultation with the U.S. Attorney.”

More concerningly, the group was spotted around the offices of Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA).

The violent rhetoric being thrown at conservative politicians daily and the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has made it clear that in today’s America, there is no room for error or laxity.
