The committee is investigating the question Whether Republicans have facilitated a tour of the Capitol and allowed tour members to carry out surveillance prior to the riots.
“We train officers to be alert to those who monitor and scout, and we do not consider any of the activities we have observed to be suspicious,” Manger said, Illinois Republican Rodney Davis. I am writing in a letter addressed to. House Management Committee.
Last week, Davis asked the Capitol Police Board to review surveillance footage from January 5, 2021 related to a tour of Loudermilk, a member of the Administration Committee.
Loudermilk, citing the surveillance video, said that Manger never entered the Capitol building itself, with a group of members that initially consisted of 12 people, but eventually increased to 15 people. I confirmed the statement.
Instead, the group spends all its time in or around three large buildings that are part of the Capitol complex and house the offices of parliamentarians with a system of underground tunnels to access the US Capitol. It seems that I spent it. About five minutes of that time was spent at a series of exhibitions in the Canon House office building.
Manger wrote that Loudermilk never took his members “in a tunnel that would lead to the US Capitol.”
Loudermilk wrote in a tweet containing a copy of the manger’s letter that “the truth will always win.”
“As I said, I never toured the Capitol on January 5, 2021 because the January 6 committee made unfounded criticisms of me in the media,” he said. wrote. There is never any suspicious activity. Parliamentary police have now confirmed this fact. “

The Houses of Parliament have two parliaments, the Senate and the House of Representatives, and a rotunda with a unique dome that has become a symbol of Washington, DC.
On January 6, riots broke corridors around Rotanda, the Senate, and the Houses of Parliament, interrupting hours of a joint parliamentary meeting in the process of confirming Biden’s elections.
The house was not torn because of barricades and security by armed police. One of the police fatally shot a mob trying to climb through the window of the speaker lobby door leading to the room in the house.
In a statement on Manger’s letter on Tuesday, Davis called his findings “a blow to the credibility of the party’s 1/6 selection committee.”
“This follows false accusations from the 1/6 election committee, where Democrats and Republicans, including Commission member Barry Loudermilk, conducted a reconnaissance tour,” Davis said.
However, the Special Committee did not say that Loudermilk had a reconnaissance tour.
Instead, the January 6 panel wrote in a May 19 letter to Loudermilk: “Public reports and witness accounts collect information about the US Capitol layout and the House and Senate office buildings. Shows some individuals and groups engaged in the effort, prior to the riot.
The committee of the same letter claimed that a Republican member of the House Administration Committee, to which Loudermilk belongs, reviewed daily security video footage leading up to the riots, saying, “No one, no tour, no large group. I didn’t. “When [Make America Great Again] I’m wearing a hat. “
