Watch: GOP Congressman Barry Loudermilk Led Capitol Tour The Day Before January 6


The January 6 committee released video footage on Wednesday showing Republican Rep. Barry Loudermilk of Georgia leading a tour of the Capitol complex on January 5, 2021, the day before a mob of former President Donald Trump’s supporters swarmed the building.

One of the individuals on the tour returned the following day, and can be heard in the released video making threats against several Democratic lawmakers including now-Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, and Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.

“They got it surrounded. It’s all the way up there on the hill, and it’s all the way around, and they’re coming in, coming in like white on rice for Pelosi, Nadler, even you, AOC,” the man says in the video released by the committee. “We’re coming to take you out and pull you out by your hairs.”

The footage also shows a man with a flagpole “appearing to have a sharpened end,” according to the committee. “That’s for somebody special, somebody special,” the man says.

The video also shows photos taken by members of the tour, including a photo of Nadler’s office plaque.

“When I get done with you, you’re going to need a shine on top of that bald head,” the rally attendee also says, referring to Pelosi.

The committee’s video also shows a member on the tour group took photos of lawmaker’s headshots and of Nadler’s office.
