Rep. Barry Loudermilk has had hell rained down on him this week, because someone photographed at the Capitol on January 6 also supposedly took a Capitol tour with the Republican representative — and the rest of a tour group on a perfectly normal day in a perfectly normal way.
But Democrat scuzz Adam Schiff let a crew from Stephen Colbert’s show into the House offices in the Capitol complex after hours and left them unescorted to do whatever they were planning to do to Lauren Boebert’s office, and the media is giving him a total pass.
The Judiciary dropped the dime on Schiff late last night.
Adam Schiff’s cronies snuck in Stephen Colbert’s staff to the U.S. Capitol and facilitated unauthorized reconnaissance tours of GOP offices.
Barely a peep from the mainstream media.

On Saturday, Loudermilk set him ablaze in a speech at the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference.
From Washington Examiner:
“They’ve accused me of giving this family that came to my office for a meeting. We took them to lunch, [and] they’re accusing us of that being a reconnaissance tour,” he said Saturday at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference in Nashville.
“Adam Schiff, a member of the Jan. 6 committee, illegally brought Stephen Colbert’s comedy team into the Capitol and left them unescorted at night, and they were arrested,” he said. “So while they’re accusing me of giving illegal tours of the Capitol, they are giving illegal tours of the Capitol.”
Loudermilk described the criticism he has received over the Jan. 5 tour, which was the subject of much of the questions from the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot, as part of a broader “cancel culture,” saying that he is determined to “stand up for truth.”
“We’re in a war against truth in this nation,” he said at the conference. “If they can destroy the truth, they will undermine everything that we stand for in this nation and everything that it’s about. And they do this through hypocrisy.”
That is so dang right.
