A House Democrat is suggesting that GOP colleague Rep. Lauren Boebert (CO) may have helped the Capitol rioters scope out the building ahead of the attack.
Speaking with Jim Sciutto on CNN Monday, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) stated that Boebert led a number of people through the Capitol on a guided tour in the days leading up to the riots.
“We saw Congressman Boebert taking people for a tour sometime after [January] 3rd and before the 6th,” Cohen said. “I don’t remember the date. We were walking in a tunnel and we saw her … and she had a large group with her.”

“It’s pretty clear that … she’s not on the home team,” Cohen said about Boebert. “She was with the visitors.” https://t.co/A1Bp5GgqnZ
