Capitol Riots: Investigation Requested Into Pre-Attack Tours
REP. RYAN SAYS HE HEARD SOME LAWMAKERS GAVE TOURS TO RIOTERS THE DAY BEFORE CAPITOL STORMING
(CNN) – A key House democrat is raising more concerns about what happened the day before the riots at the U.S. Capitol.
Congressman Tim Ryan says he heard that come lawmakers showed would-be rioters their way around the Capitol on January 5th.
But Ryan says he will not name any names until he can verify the information.
The congressman, who leads a probe into how Capitol police handled the riots, says the information has been passed on to authorities.
Earlier, democratic representative Mikie Sherrill made a similar allegation about fellow Congress members.
She said rioters were given tours by some lawmakers, which she called a reconnaissance mission.
More than 30-lawmakers have signed a letter asking for an investigation into those claims.
