“Many of the members who signed this letter, including those of us who have served in the military and are trained to recognize suspicious activity, as well as various members of our staff, witnessed an extremely high number of outside groups in the complex on Tuesday, January 5,” the lawmakers wrote. They called the visits suspicious, noting that tours have been restricted because of the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Holy fuck.

Members of congress allowing terrorists with military training to do reconnaissance the day before the attack.

 

It would definitely explain how they knew where the Dem offices were.

“Those members of Congress who had groups coming through the Capitol that I saw on Jan. 5, a reconnaissance for the next day, those members of Congress that incited this violent crowd,” Sherrill said, “those members who attempted to help our president undermine our democracy, I’m going to see that they’re held accountable.”

There is nothing illegal about a member of Congress leading a tour (of constituents).  It happens all the time.

It's illegal if they conspired with their constituents to assassinate members of the Democratic party.

 

How would they know what those people had planned for the next day?

 

Besides, doesn't this contradict the allegation in the Article of Impeachment?  Trump is accused of inciting insurrection with his remarks of 1/6.  But if leaders/participants were gathering recon information the day BEFORE the speech, they had it already planned.  Nothing like shooting down your own case.

Because they conspired to help them.

 

I'm not saying it's true, just saying it's possible. There are a lot of QAnon types who have entered congress recently... these are people who believe the Democrats are satan worshippers and pedophiles who control the world, and that Trump is the only one trying to stop them.

 

Are you telling me that if you sincerely believed this, you wouldn't try to kill the Democrats? You wouldn't try to overturn the election and keep Trump in power?

No.

 

Not everyone who stormed the Capitol was part of whatever this was (QAnon assassination attempt or what-have-you). There were plenty of them who WERE following Trump's lead.

 

And Trump has been inciting this for a very long time with his lies and charged rhetoric. Even if you didn't know he was lying about the election fraud, HE knew he was lying... and so did every GOP member of congress who went along with it.
