At least seven staffers who work for CBS News' "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" were arrested after allegedly entering a U.S. House of Representatives building, specifically the Longworth House Building, where they were not legally permitted to be, according to Fox News. They had been escorted out from January 6 select committee hearing because they did not have the proper press credentials, which is investigating the actions of people who were also not where they were legally allowed to be.
Despite being escorted out, the seven people re-appeared that night after the Capitol complex was closed to the public. "The group was unescorted and charged with illegal entry to House office buildings after hours," the report notes.
Fox News' Chad Pegram also has a lengthy thread explaining the details over Twitter, including a statement from the U.S. Capitol Police.
Another report from Fox News has more on the alleged behavior of the individuals, explaining that they "reportedly banged on doors of several Republican offices – including that of Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California, Jim Jordan of Ohio and Lauren Boebert of Colorado -- as they allegedly filmed a skit for Colbert's "Late Show" program that was to center around the January 6 hearings."
The individuals were arrested near Rep. Boebert's office.
That same report mentioned demands from Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL) for answers once Congress returns next week:

I think the FBI gave them a one way ride out over the ocean
Arrested for doing EXACTLY what the Jan 6th protestors are accused of but didnt have to spend ONE day in solitary confinement..is Kinzinger gonna cry on TV about how this is a serious threat to democracy..is Liz Cheney already scheduling hearings, yeah I didnt think so..they took video and photos of McCarthy and Boebert’s office..for what, did they plant bugs in their offices?
Typical ‘Rat supported terrorists working on Insurrection and a LW coup...
This will be quietly dropped.
thanks. 😵💫 I searched a couple ways using different terms and nothing popped up.
Let’s see if they get the same treatment as all the non violent so called tresspassers of 1/6. Will they rot away in dank cells for a year?
Yeah, that was a tough one. A keyword search of “Colbert.”
Hey Biden sat down and had a chit chat with Colbert so maybe Colbert asked him if his staff had access to all government buildings then and Joe said sure and then forgot to tell the Capitol Police.
Put them in detention for a year, then sentence for couple of years. Get them the treatment of Jan 6 people.
Why not add them to Jan 6 hearing?
I’m curious how many 1/6’ers were escorted out and then returned with the purpose to harass HOR members?
Sounds like these were the only ones. And the only ones who didn’t spend any time behind bars.
Sometimes the simplest things evade us. 🤣🙌
Demand that they confess if they want less than 20 years.
The Left must get the same treatment.
People will call this laws for thee, but not for me; however, there is a btter phrase to describe this: a title of nobility for the lib/commie hordes -- but what is the Constitution to our lib/commie friends, anyway?
“Yeah, that was a tough one. A keyword search of “Colbert.””
You don’t know when the key word was added.
Search engines work better than the search on this site
Was it an insurrection? Will there be congressional hearings?
Their only transparency is what we can see through their Machiavellian machinations.
In Machiavelli's The Prince (1513) we can read about the political maneuvering that is often defined as 'Machiavellian' – where the taking of political scalps (“the killing of innocents”) and dishonest and unscrupulous dealings are detailed as a necessary means to an end.
