"Suspicious" Tours In Capitol Day Before Riot Prompts Investigation

Some House Democrats are calling for an investigation into what they call "suspicious" Capitol tours that took place the day before the deadly mob attack last Wednesday.

The lawmakers say they witnessed "an extremely high number of outside groups in the complex, on Jan. 5, which is unusual given that public tours of the Capitol ended in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic."

The group of House Democrats also referenced that "Members of the group that attacked the Capitol seemed to have an unusually detailed knowledge of the layout of the Capitol Complex."
