NJ congresswoman alleges Congress members gave 'reconnaissance' tours day before Capitol violence
Jersey Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill said in a 13-minute Facebook video that
she witnessed members of Congress escorting people through the Capitol last
Tuesday, describing it as "reconnaissance" ahead of the next day’s
, Sherrill made the allegations as part of a call to hold President
Donald Trump's allies in Congress accountable.
"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," Rep. Sherrill said.
