Ratings and polling suggest that Americans are not interested in Democrats’ J6 commission. But that hasn’t stopped the liberal media from trying to make a big deal out of it.
Some of late show host Stephen Colbert’s crew tried to infiltrate the hearings. They were even caught trespassing a House of Representatives office building and were arrested.
From Fox News:
The U.S. Capitol Police arrested a group of staffers with CBS’s “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” after they allegedly illegally entered a U.S. House of Representatives office building on Thursday night, Fox News has learned.
The group of seven people were arrested in the Longworth House Office Building after being escorted out of the Jan. 6 committee hearing earlier in the day.
Apparently, they did not have the right press credentials to view the hearings. So, they “illegally entered” another office building and were caught.
And now, Fox’s Tucker Carlson is making a big demand.
From The Hill:
“Last night, producers from Stephen Colbert’s show on CBS committed insurrection at the United States Capitol,” Carlson said, referring to the producers’ unescorted entrance into a House office building authorized by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.)…
The producers were arrested for unlawful entry into the Capitol complex, although Carlson said hey should spend a year and a half in solitary confinement before going to court because of the “precedent” set by the trials of Jan. 6 insurrectionists.
Tucker Carlson accused Colbert’s staff of “insurrection” for trespassing onto Capitol Building property.
The same accusation was used against many Americans who trespassed on Capitol grounds on January 6, 2021.
The news host is demanding Colbert’s staff to be treated the same way as many of those arrested over J6.
You might be thinking that is harsh, given that Colbert’s staff weren’t “rioting” from what has been reported.
But the crew illegally entered Capitol grounds and reportedly “harassed” Republican congressional staff.
It appears Tucker is playing devil’s advocate, calling out the dramatic contrast between what happened to J6 participants, and what will probably happen to Colbert’s crew.
It’s unclear what charges these television workers will face. They might receive a slap on the wrist or perhaps heftier fines.
But the episode brings back to light those forced to stay in jail, some without bail, over the events of J6.
Many have claimed their constitutional rights were ignored. Some of them were even denied medical treatment.
