Memory Lane: Mikie Sherrill raised the alarm about tours, received ethics complaint.

Rachel Maddow is reminding us tonight on her show that Mikie Sherrill blew the whistle on Capitol tours within days of Jan 6, and that she and other Democrats requested the Capitol Police investigation into the matter. They were named in an ethics complaint because of this. One of the three Republicans spearheading the complaint was Barry Loudermilk.

The nerve.


Members of Congress gave ‘reconnaissance’ tours day before attack on capitol, Rep. Mikie Sherrill

U.S. Rep. Mikie Sherrill, D-11th Dist., said Tuesday she witnessed members of Congress lead “reconnaissance” tours the day before a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump.

The complaint, first obtained by the Daily Caller, alleged three specific violations and called for an investigation by the House Ethics Committee into the behavior of over two dozen Democrats. The complaint specifically mentioned a letter sent by New Jersey Rep. Mikie Sherrill and 33 other Democrats to the Capitol Police asking them to investigate unsubstantiated claims that members of Congress led “suspicious” groups through the Capitol Complex on a “reconnaissance” journey ahead of the riot.

The ethics complaint was sent by the top Republicans on the House Administration Committee, Illinois Rep. Rodney Davis, Georgia Rep. Barry Loudermilk and Wisconsin Rep. Bryan Steil.

4. It's kinda interesting

How so many stories and reports today were news back in 2020 and 2021 and have either not gained traction, or fallen under a radar, or forgotten over time …
And now, it’s back …

Boom

DU has been on it all along 👏

5. It is

I’d forgotten about this but I had seen it here. The tours have been a topic of discussion here for a while. I didn’t realize that the Capital was closed.

9. I think you're right.

Plus the new Congress was being sworn in so there was a lot of moving going on I’d think.
