It looks like Congress may end up with a new member or two because of last week’s violence, in which protesters broke into the U.S. Capitol and vandalized it.
The new situation has developed because, according to a report from Politico, Rep. Mikie Sherrill, D-N.J., has accused colleagues in Congress of escorting people through the Capitol on January 5 for “reconnaissance” before the next day’s riot.
It charges criminal behavior on the part of other members of Congress, according to a video statement she posted online.
She said, in the video, “I also intend to see that those members of Congress who abetted him — those members of Congress who had groups coming through the capitol that I saw on Jan. 5 for reconnaissance for the next day — those members of Congress who incited the violent crowd, those members of Congress that attempted to help our president undermine our democracy, I’m going see that they’re held accountable.”
She declined, however, to identify the legislators. Nor would she explain how she determined those activities were “reconnaissance.” (Read more from “Dem Accuses Congressional Colleagues of Giving Rioters Tours of U.S. Capitol” HERE)
