Democrat Rep. Mikie Sherrill Accuses GOP Congressmen of Giving Rioters “Reconnaissance” Tours the Night Before Capitol Stormed

Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ) accused Republican members of Congress of giving “reconnaissance” tours of the Capitol the night before rioters stormed the building while Congress met to certify the Electoral College vote for president. Sherrill did not name the Congressmen she is accusing of colluding with the rioters.

Sherrill made the accusation in a livestream address to her New Jersey constituents on her support for removing President Trump from office via impeachment or the 25th Amendment.

“We can’t have a democracy if members of Congress are actively helping the President overturn the election results. And so not only do I intend to see that the President is removed and never runs for office again and doesn’t have access to classified material,
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 January 5th for reconnaissance for the next day — those members of Congress that incited this violent crowd, those members of Congress that attempted to help our president undermine our democracy, I’m going see that they’re held accountable. And if necessary, ensure that they don’t serve in Congress.”
