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.
