Rep. Barry Loudermilk denies offering a reconnaissance tour to terrorists and says he solely gave household excursions.
Loudermilk and Rep. Rodney Davis mentioned in an announcement:
MORE: …. Committee is “pushing a verifiably false narrative that Republicans performed reconnaissance excursions on Jan fifth. The details converse for themselves; no place that the household went on the fifth was breached on the sixth, the household didn’t enter the Capitol grounds on the sixth..”

The 1/6 Committee claims to have video evidence of the tour. The Republicans are claiming that they had been simply exhibiting a household round on 1/5. If the Republicans stick with this story, it may get ugly quick if the video tells a distinct story.
Republicans have lied and refused to testify earlier than the committee, so there isn’t a good motive for anybody to imagine them once they declare that they had been giving “household excursions.”
If Loudermilk was solely giving a household tour, he shouldn’t have any downside with explaining this to the committee. The denial and declare that the 1/6 Committee is pushing a false narrative is political spin, not a proof for what was occurring within the Capitol on 1/5.
Home Republicans have gone from denying that there have been any excursions of the Capitol earlier than the assault to claiming that they had been solely offering household excursions.
One thing isn’t including up, and the 1/6 Committee ought to launch the video and permit the American individuals to see who’s telling the reality.
