Colbert’s Toadies Arrested at Capitol for Unlawful Entry

Gee, where’s Michael Leroy Byrd when he’s actually needed.

A production team associated with Stephen Colbert’s late-night comedy show was arrested on Capitol grounds Thursday night.

Members of the group, initially on location around the time of a hearing conducted by the Democratic-led Jan. 6 committee, were charged with unlawful entry and released after they were found in the Longworth House Office Building, which was closed to the public at the time, the Washington Examiner has learned. The U.S. Capitol Police did not identify who was arrested but did acknowledge charges.

“On June 16, 2022, at approximately 8:30 p.m., U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) received a call for a disturbance in the Longworth House Office Building,” Capitol Police said in a statement obtained by the Washington Examiner. “Responding officers observed seven individuals, unescorted and without Congressional ID, in a sixth-floor hallway.”

“The building was closed to visitors, and these individuals were determined to be a part of a group that had been directed by the USCP to leave the building earlier in the day,” the statement added. “They were charged with Unlawful Entry. This is an active criminal investigation, and may result in additional criminal charges after consultation with the U.S. Attorney.”

Among those in the group was Robert Smigel, known for being the man behind Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, a cigar-smoking puppet, a congressional source told Fox News. The other people in the group, which numbered more than seven, were identified as Jake Plunkett, Allison Martinez, Tyrone Dean, Stephen Romond, Nicoletta Green, Brendan Hurley, Josh Comers, and David Feldman.

……A source familiar told the Washington Examiner that the Late Show group was initially let into the Capitol complex on Thursday for prearranged interviews with members of Congress but “overstayed their welcome.”

The interviews were with Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), who both serve on the Jan. 6 committee, which held a hearing Thursday, as well as with Rep. Jake Auchincloss (D-MA), according to Fox News. A congressional source told the Washington Examiner that the Late Show crew members were asked to leave earlier Thursday when they were outside the Jan. 6 committee hearing room without proper media credentials. Despite the earlier warning, the staff came back later to film segments for the show and were creating a disturbance by banging on congressional doors at night, the source said, adding, “They knew what they were doing was wrong.”

A GOP aide referred to the situation regarding the Jan. 6 committee’s interest in Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) conducting a tour of the Capitol the day before the riot, even though the Capitol Police said there was nothing suspicious about the activities they observed.

“On the 50th Anniversary of Watergate, Democrat staffers from the offices of Adam Schiff and Jake Auchincloss got a film crew into the House Office Buildings that then went around the same buildings that Rep. Loudermilk was accused of giving ‘reconnaissance’ tours of — a claim that’s been debunked by Capitol Police,” the aide told the Washington Examiner.

“Late last night, CBS employees who work for the Colbert Show were arrested by Capitol Police for unlawful entry and spent the night in jail,” the GOP aide added. “They were not credentialed to be walking around without an escort, and they were banging on the doors of the offices of Republicans like Kevin McCarthy, Jim Jordan and Lauren Boebert as they were filming a skit on the Jan. 6 hearings — a topic the Left and woke media keep trying to use to distract the American People from issues like inflation, crime, and the border.”

The Washington Examiner reached out to representatives for Schiff, Murphy, and Auchincloss for comment.

Rep. Rodney Davis (IN), the top Republican on the House Administration Committee, told Fox News host Jesse Watters on Friday that he “just found out about the arrests today” and vowed there would be some sort of inquiry, including into what the group was doing “without an escort.”

……“Adam Schiff’s cronies snuck in Stephen Colbert’s staff to the US Capitol and facilitated unauthorized reconnaissance tours of GOP offices,” said an official account for the House Judiciary Committee Republicans.

“On the 50th anniversary of the Watergate break-in, @RepAdamSchiff’s cronies sneak in Stephen Colbert’s staffers and provide unauthorized reconnaissance tours of Republican offices throughout Capitol Hill,” they added in a follow-up message, which included an embedded Fox News segment on the arrests by host Jesse Watters.

……All nine reportedly spent the night in jail and were released Friday.

Capitol police said they were changed with “unlawful entry” and that “this is an active criminal investigation, and may result in additional criminal charges after consultation with the US Attorney,” Fox News reported.


These shitbags were cleared into the complex by staffers for Rep. Jake Auchincloss, D-Mass., and House January 6 Committee Member Adam Schiff, D-Calif.  They knew what was going to happen and why. Where’s the fucking capitol police investigation?

They should be carted off to the same DC gulag where the January 6 protesters are being held without due process.
