Kida was like a tour for some, given that LEOs were holing the door open for them.

Capitol police appeared to let a mass of Trump demonstrators right into the Capitol building at one entry point Wednesday after the crowd breached the perimeter surrounding the complex. "I ...​

Jan 7, 2021A Capitol police officer was seen politely holding the door for pro-Trump protesters to walk out of the building after causing mayhem that forced lawmakers to barricade themselves inside.​

This only serves to deflate the left's overblown hyperventilation, politically driven push narrative for perceived political advantage of the day's events, and deflates the J6 'House Select Committee', revealing it being politically driven political Kabuki theater, which has been observed and proven correct, since it's first day.

Completely irrelevant. There is no indication of anything that needs to be investigated. He's calling for them to look at the camera footage. Why do you think they are not doing that? That would clear things right up. That's probably why they aren't looking at it.
I’m not saying string him up or that he’s guilty, but it’s bonkers to me to hear anyone say that there’s no need to look into anything.

Many democrats (military vets) had concerns that republicans gave recon tours to terrorists. I have no idea if that was true or not. But if it was true it would be heinous.

So its fair to ask, “were there any tours?” Loudermilk said there were no tours, not just by him… but by anyone. Now it turns out he gave a tour. So we have serious potential crime followed by a lie. Why lie? Maybe he had a reason? Maybe he was just a hyperpartisan pos that refuses to follow the law because he hates democrats but otherwise did nothing wrong. Who knows?

But we need to at least investigate.

Let me know when the J6 political circus has elevated their integrity to actually ask about this and even more actually does anything about it.

I'm skeptical that the J6 committee will do either.

What stinks is an attack on our capitol and multiple coup plots never seen in America before. So yes, we need to know all we can about this. The DOJ can sort out who is criminal and who is just a democracy hating republican. It won't come soon enough.
Please, you can't see the forest for the trees.

Congress is not doing a criminal investigation, the DOJ is. Congress cannot be silent if they come across a federal crime. They are obligated to pass it to the DOJ. Been going on in America like this for many years.

You just don't like it because it's exposing so many of your hero's.
Incase you hadn't noticed, DOJ just requested all their information.

It means that suspicions has been raised about Rep Loudermilk and the 1/6/21 assault on our Capitol. The Committee has every right to question any Congress Critter that may have information about that assault. They may also question others who may have information or played a role into that assault. Much like connecting dots.
There are suspicions about Pelosi. When do you think they will be asking her about the security around the Capitol? Mitch as well.

You actually think there is any basis to think that he was giving tours, the day before the attack, to people to help with the attack? First, it's a little crazy to think that, especially without any indication that it happened. Remember that. There is zero indication that this occurred, other than Democrats blurting it out and pointing fingers. But, the committee on unamerican activities is pulling people in on a whim.

How many years is this Jan 6 Panel ala witch hunt going to go on?

Is it taking so long because of irrelevant digging or because of obstructionist witnesses or grandstanding by both sides of the aisle or a combination of all of the above?
It's purpose is to damage Trump and try to salvage whatever the Democrats can of the coming election.

Anybody got a scorecard of anyone the committee HASN'T contacted? This investigation ala Mueller is getting silly; and not in a good way.

This committee has people that pushed the discredited Russian collusion lie, people on the Democrat impeachment team, and the worst liar of the worst, Adam Schiff. Lied about having evidence against Trump that showed he was a Russian operative, pushed the fake impeachment, and altered Jim Jordan's texts about the Capitol riot, and presented them as authentic. This guy is on a committee to supposedly find "truth". The last guy on Earth that should be involved.

Big one here! The guy who held the virtual map, recon tour, for the invaders to learn where and how to infiltrate and maneuver, even as sloppy in which it went down in real time.
Rep. Barry Loudermilk of Georgia is the latest GOP lawmaker to be asked to cooperate with the House select committee probing the violence that took place on Jan. 6, 2021.
“Based on our review of evidence in the Select Committee’s possession, we believe you have information regarding a tour you led through parts of the Capitol complex on January 5, 2021,“ Reps Bennie Thompson and Liz Cheney, the chairman and vice-chairwoman of the committee, said in a letter Thursday.
"Public reporting and witness accounts indicate some individuals and groups engaged in efforts to gather information about the layout of the U.S. Capitol, as well as the House and Senate office buildings, in advance of January 6, 2021," they wrote.

Yes, also known as the enemy of the state.


Plus this added information given by Loudermilk when interviewed on a radio show.


But in the interview—given as the riot was winding down—Loudermilk made it clear that he met with people who were planning to protest on Jan. 6, and that he discussed how they wanted to be in the crowd that day to protest the results of the 2020 election.


“We actually had about a dozen people up here that wanted to come by and visit, we had them in our office, they definitely were peaceful people, people that we met at church. They were supporters of the president, they wanted to be up here as if it were another rally.”



The Daily Dot has reached out to Loudermilk’s office for comment. In a video statement released today, Loudermilk claims that the family was wearing red baseball caps, which is why he's being singled out by the committee, but also admits the family brought guests with them, which he had not previously mentioned.
Loudermilk’s a ****ing liar, and got caught lying.

And yet some here are dismissing his lying or shrugging their shoulders like it’s no big deal.

All these congressional Republicans refusing subpoenas - they're up to it to their dirty necks.

And I'll bet the committee has video evidence. No way they would put this out there without some damn good evidence. And if they do have it, he lied through his teeth when he said no one gave any tours on Jan. 5th.

This will get really good really fast.
The Democrats are going to put on a great show in June. I think they should put in in documentary form, like Tucker's "false flag" bullshit. The difference is - every bit of what the Democrats are presenting is supported by evidence - texts and documents. It won't be like Benghazi, where Republicans just pulled bull out of their behinds.

I know, gotta defend the democracy hating anti Americans.

The truth is he lied about giving any tours, then when confronted with evidence he did, he changed his tune. Why did he lie?

"“A constituent family with young children meeting with their Member of Congress in the House office buildings is not a suspicious group or ‘reconnaissance tour.’ The family never entered the Capitol building,” Mr. Loudermilk wrote in a joint statement with Representative Rodney Davis of Illinois, the top Republican on the House Administration Committee, adding: “No place that the family went on the 5th was breached on the 6th, the family did not enter the Capitol grounds on the 6th, and no one in that family has been investigated or charged in connection to January 6th.”

So you believe this liar? :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
If it's true, testify to it under oath. It's that simple.

Many criminals are caught in this manner. Investigations tend to roll this way. Relax.
He can't relax. The conspiracy is unraveling and he's too invested.

Trump and his allies pressuring state legislatures to reject the outcomes of their voters and name their own electors, Trump pressuring the DOJ to announce fraud when they found none, pressuring Pence to violate his constitutional duty, egging on the violent insurrection with a tweet about Pence betraying them, and refusing McCarthy's plea to stop the insurrection don't impress you?
