Colbert Capitol Complex Breach: Report Adam Schiff Was Involved

As we reported earlier, a group of nine people who were with the “Late Show With Stephen Colbert” was arrested after they allegedly illegally entered a U.S. House of Representatives Office Building — the Longworth Building. They had tried to get into the Jan. 6 Committee hearings at the Capitol but were tossed out because they didn’t have press ID. But then, they were caught later after the Longworth building was closed to the public, taking pictures and video around the offices of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), and banging on people’s office doors.

From Fox News:

A senior source in the U.S House of Representatives told Fox News that nine individuals associated with Stephen Colbert’s show were arrested: Jake Plunkett, Allison Martinez, Tyrone Dean, Stephen Romond, Nicoletta Green, Brendan Hurley, Robert Smigel, Josh Comers, David Feldman.

The group was unescorted and charged with illegal entry to House office buildings after hours.

U.S. Capitol Police said they were called to a “disturbance.”

“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. 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 says. “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.”

As Jesse Watters notes, these were not flunkies, but producers, writers, and associate producers. According to Watters, a Congressional source told them that it was Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) (one of the Jan. 6 Committee members) who had let them in, along with Rep. Jake Auchincloss (D-MA).

Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL), the ranking member of the House Administration Committee, said they were let in by someone from Schiff’s office.

According to Fox’s Chad Pergram in a thread on Twitter, they had gotten interviews with some members of Congress earlier in the day, including Schiff and Auchincloss. Then an aide to Auchincloss allegedly let them back into the building at around 4 p.m. But then, instead of leaving, they roamed the hallways, unattended, for hours. They were arrested, ultimately, near Boebert’s office

This happened Thursday (last night)–why are we only hearing about it now? Are they going to hold them for a year in solitary like some of the Jan. 6 folks?

This is incredibly ironic that Democrats went after Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) for just having guests at the complex taking pictures of the artwork. But none of those people were arrested like this, and the police said nothing they did was suspcious. This is also the anniversary of the Watergate break-in. More irony of ironies.

How is Adam Schiff going to justify his actions in letting these people in, given their behavior?

    ZERO. ACCOUNTABILITY.

    I am sick to death of this bogus “justice” system. This is no longer the land of the free because there are too few brave patriots — especially the politicians.

    The vile communist Pig Shifty shift doesn’t need to be investigated, he needs to be executed and all his scumbags in his corrupt satanic government agency of New World Order elitist scum need to go with him.

  • Kathy says:

    Is Kevin McCarthy putting pressure on Adam Schiff to resign from the January 6th committee – at the very least? This should be brought up day after day until the January 6th committee is dissolved. Call out the hypocrisy. Stephen Colbert went on his show to “excuse” what happened. That should NOT have been allowed. Where are the Republicans? Why aren’t they lighting this up? What are they doing to dismiss this ridiculous sham?
