The Colbert Seven Arrest by “Cautious” Police “Was Very Professional”

J6 “insurrectionist” Matthew Martin is not guilty of four federal misdemeanors related to trespassing. This marks the first time a US Capitol riot defendant was acquitted of all charges.

Martin, who worked for a government contractor before his arrest following the riot, successfully argued that a US Capitol Police officer waved him into the building. This should be good for nearly 400 other people.

Sen. Ron Johnson counted well over 300 people waved into the Capitol side entrance by the police. He used one of the available videos to get the count. The government currently has 14,000 hours of videos they are hiding.

THAT TAKES US TO COLBERT’S PRODUCERS

No one waved Stephen Colbert’s producers into the Capitol last week. The Colbert thugs tried to hunt down GOP lawmakers and crashed the presser on Capitol Hill. The press conference featured families and lawyers of J6 detainees. The Colbert crew mocked and harassed them.

The thugs were chased off by the police only to return. Colbert’s thugs are now federally charged.

THEY CAME BACK – ILLEGALLY

U.S. Capitol Police responded to a call about a disturbance in the Longworth House Office Building around 8:30 p.m. and arrested the group.

“Responding officers observed seven individuals, unescorted and without Congressional ID, in a sixth-floor hallway,” the police said in a statement. “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 Capitol Police charged the seven with unlawful entry. “This is an active criminal investigation, and may result in additional criminal charges after consultation with the U.S. Attorney,” the USCP added.

While they did not start a violent riot, what were they doing?

COLBERT DOWNPLAYS THE INTRUSION

Stephen Colbert, who likely knew about it beforehand, downplayed it on his show with some bad jokes. He’s not a comedian, but rather, he’s a sarcastic far-left activist.

During Monday night’s “Late Show,” Colbert portrayed the arrests as a “very professional” interaction between his staff and “cautious” Capitol Police officers.

“The Capitol police were just doing their job, my staff was just doing their job, everyone was very professional, everyone was very calm,” the host continued. “My staffers were detained, processed, and released. A very unpleasant experience for my staff.”

THE EVENT

On Thursday, “the Colbert Seven” were arrested for unlawful entry into the Longworth House Office Building.

Among those arrested was Robert Smigel, the puppeteer for “Triumph the Insult Comic Dog,” a character on CBS’s “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”

“After they’d finished their interviews, [my staffers] were doing some last-minute puppetry and jokey make-em-ups in a hallway when Triumph and my folks were approached and detained by Capitol Police,” Colbert said.

He continued, “A lot of paperwork for the Capitol police but a fairly simple story… until the next night when a couple of the TV people started claiming that my puppet squad had quote, ‘committed insurrection’ at the U.S. Capitol building.”

Colbert claims his staff was not in the main Capitol building. So, it “shocked” Colbert that he has to explain the difference. “But an insurrection involves disrupting the lawful actions of Congress and howling for the blood of elected leaders – all to prevent the peaceful transfer of power.”

He tagged the incident as “first-degree puppetry.” Then he blamed former President Trump for the Jan. 6 capitol riot.
