Video Reveals Man in GOP Congressman’s Capitol Tour Threatened to “Take Out” AOC

The House select committee investigating the breach of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, released evidence Wednesday showcasing how at least one individual who took part in a Republican congressman’s tour of the building on the day prior to the attack was also part of the violent mob of Trump loyalists who marched to the Capitol. The evidence appears to directly contradict claims by Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Georgia), who said last month that his tour group did not include any violent members of the January 6 mob.

On Wednesday, the commission voted unanimously to forward the consideration to hold Clark in contempt of Congress — but lawmakers added that they will drop their…
