New Jersey Democrat Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill Spread an unsubstantiated conspiracy theory against her peer, Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert back in January. It turns out, that claim is false and the House Ethics Committee says so.
On January 12th, Sherill said she witnessed Congresswoman Boebert giving U.S. Capitol incursion protesters a recconaisance tour of the Capitol Building the day before the riot. It turns out, this never happened, and Sherrill made the whole thing up.
“The tours being conducted on Tuesday, January 5, were a noticeable and concerning departure from the procedures in place as of March 2020 that limited the number of visitors to the Capitol,” Sherrill wrote in the now debunked complaint. “These tours were so concerning that they were reported to the Sergeant at Arms on January 5.”
“The visitors encountered by some of the Members of Congress on this letter appeared to be associated with the rally at the White House the following day. That group left the White House and marched to the Capitol with the objective of preventing Congress from certifying our election,” Sherill continued. “Members of the group that attacked the Capitol seemed to have an unusually detailed knowledge of the layout of the Capitol Complex. The presence of these groups within the Capitol Complex was indeed suspicious. Given the events of January 6, the ties between these groups inside the Capitol Complex and the attacks on the Capitol need to be investigated.”
An investigation was conducted and on Friday, Boebert was cleared by the U.S. House Ethics Committee of any wrongdoing. Read more on that here: Democrat conspiracy complaint against Lauren Boebert dismissed.
