Once again we appear to have lopsided justice in favor of the left.
Stephen Colbert’s staffers, who were arrested in June for unlawful entry and trespassing in the US Capitol after they were trying to ambush Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, are being let off the hook by federal prosecutors even though they deliberately disobeyed warnings they’d been given.
Via DC Examiner:
Federal prosecutors have declined to prosecute members of a production team associated with Stephen Colbert’s late-night comedy show who were arrested last month on Capitol Hill.
A production team involved with The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, which airs on CBS, had been charged with unlawful entry and had a court date set for this week after being arrested by Capitol Police while filming segments for cigar-smoking puppet Triumph the Insult Comic Dog handled by comedian Robert Smigel.
CBS acknowledged last month that a production team involved in filming segments for cigar-smoking puppet Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, handled by comedian Robert Smigel, was detained by Capitol Police, and Colbert himself addressed the arrests on his show Monday.
“The United States Capitol Police (USCP) has been working with the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia on the June 16, 2022, Unlawful Entry case that involved a group of nine people associated with The Late Show,” the U.S. Capitol Police said in a statement Monday.
“The USCP arrested nine people for Unlawful Entry charges because members of the group had been told several times before they entered the Congressional buildings that they had to remain with a staff escort inside the buildings and they failed to do so,” the Capitol Police added. “The United States Capitol Police was just informed the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia is declining to prosecute the case. We respect the decision that office has made.”
Just imagine if these were staffers of James O’Keefe or Joe Rogan. Do you think for one moment that they wouldn’t be prosecuted? Heck no. They’d be prosecuted to the hilt, just like all the ‘trespassers’ from January 6th.
I tell you what, it pays to be a criminal Democrat in a city currently being run by Democrats. Because they always seem to get off the hook.
