Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

House committee Democrats investing January 6 claimed that Republican lawmakers led “reconnaissance” tours through the United States Capitol Complex on Jan 5, 2021. Rep. Barry Loudermilk, a target of the accusation, has admitted to providing a tour to constituents the day before January 6. However, Loudermilk said last month the group never entered the Capitol, but toured parts of the office complex. Capitol Police Chief J. Thomas Manger wrote a letter on Monday confirming there is no evidence that Loudermilk gave a “reconnaissance” tour. Manger declared, “…we do not consider any of the activities we observed as suspicious.”
