New Capitol Breach: 9 ‘Associates’ of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Arrested for Unlawful Entry

In a major security breach in the shadows of the Jan. 6 hearings, seven individuals were arrested in the Capitol complex for “unlawful entry,” and police told Congress some were tied to comedian Stephen Colbert’s TV show, Just the News has learned.

The apprehensions occurred at about 8:30 p.m. Thursday in the Longworth House Office Building, across Independence Avenue from the U.S. Capitol, in Washington, D.C., police confirmed to Just the News. It was the second time the individuals had been spotted unauthorized in the building.

While authorities declined to immediately identify those arrested, multiple congressional sources confirmed to Just the News that Capitol Police informed Congress that some of those apprehended were affiliated with Colbert’s “Late Show” on CBS.

Spokesperson for Colbert’s show, an agent for the comedian and a CBS spokesperson did not immediately respond to multiple requests for comment.

Capitol Police told Just the News the seven individuals were arrested on charges of unlawful entry into the complex.

“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,” Capitol Police said in statement.

“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.”

“This is an active criminal investigation, and may result in additional criminal charges after consultation with the U.S. Attorney,” Capitol Police added.

Update:

Fox confirms that group of persons associated with The Late Show Stephen Colbert were arrested last night and charged with illegal entry to House office buildings after hours.

Fox has confirmed the arrests of these nine persons through a senior House source.

    But is okay to keep those poor people who attended the peaceful protest about the election. All they could have charged them with is unlawful entry, but then again, we all saw how the Capitol Police opened the door for certain individuals. Nothing will happen to these morons that got caught. They will make up some story and lie their way to freedom. What is wrong with this Government and no one ever doing anything to close our borders. The usual suspects got caught again. This Schiff should have lost his job if we had any rules left. He was one of the Democrats who made up the story about the Russia collusion about Trump. They are all running free and up to their dirty work again. Stephen Colbert is only being arrested for Unlawful Entry which the people they have in jail can only have been charged with. This is a travesty of Justice.

    I do not like being called a Conservative like it is a bad thing. The word Conservatives believe in law and order. We like our children to learn the real history of our country. We do not like them being exposed to so much sexuality by these brainwashing evil people. We believe in God, in which the real wealthy and Democrats have no interest in. We believe in everyone being treat fairly. We believe in the rule of Law. Compare what we believe in and the Liberals and Democrats believe in. Their rule of law is greediness, control, and more more money for themselves. We have to pay using our tax dollar for more Illegals to come across our Borders. One day I truly hope the law does apply to them because what they have done to our country and American Citizens is totally unforgivable.

    They should all be thrown in Prison. No Phone Calls No Lawyers. No Pool No Pets.

    They should all be charged with Armed Insurrection.

    They all entered the Capital Building under a known Conspiracy – no Valid Passes.

    They were all Armed when they entered the Capital Building

    They all entered “Armed” each Insurrectionist entered the Capital Building with two Fully Semi Automatic Side Arms.

    They all had fully loaded Left Arms and a Right Arms.

    And where is that Ringleader Stephen Colbert ? ? ?

    We are sure that Stephen Colbert knew they were going to the Capital Building to enter illegally and Stephen Colbert probably encouraged them to do so.

    Justice Now ! ! !

    Have you heard about the getaways at the Border?? Well this episode of people getting arrested for being in the Capital just like many laws broken by elites in the Democrat Party, Nothing will ever be done. The DOJ and The FBI represents them only. At least until WE do something about it.
