WATCH: New Footage of Capitol Riot Defendants On January 5th Tour (Led By A House Republican) Will Chill You

The January 6th Committee has released additional footage both from the attack on the Capitol, and from a tour given the previous day by Representative Barry Loudermilk (R-GA). The chilling compilation links the tour and the attacks — and reveals a series of threats made by individuals on both.

The Committee is asking Representative Loudermilk to answer questions about a tour he led on January 5th, 2021, in which individuals can be seen taking photos and videos of “areas of the complex not typically of interest to tourists, including hallways, staircases, and security checkpoints.”

Along with the video seen below the Committee has also made public a new letter to Loudermilk laying out allegations against the tour attendees, and renewing the request for him to address the concerns.

The video shows a January 6th participant boasting about a flag with a sharpened tip “for somebody special,” and contains a series of threats.

“There is no escape, [Nancy] Pelosi, [Chuck] Schumer, [Jerry] Nadler. We’re coming for you. We’re coming in like white on rice, for Pelosi, Nadler, Schumer. Even you, AOC [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez].” We’re coming to take you out!We’ll pull you out by your hairs.”

The person recording can be seen, along with others in January 5th security footage inside the Capitol, taking what appear to be recon photos of offices, stairs, and tunnels, apparently on a tour led by a Member of Congress, despite the Capitol Complex being closed to visitors that day.

In a letter, the January 6th Committee addresses Loudermilk:

Surveillance footage shows a tour of approximately ten individuals led by you to areas in the Rayburn, Longworth, and Cannon House Office Buildings, as well as the entrances to tunnels leading to the U.S. Capitol…Individuals on the tour photographed and recorded areas of the complex not typically of interest to tourists, including hallways, staircases, and security checkpoints…While we had hoped to show you the video evidence when you met with us, and since you have thus far declined, the Select Committee provides the video in question for your review.
