Fox News’ Chat Pergram is reporting that multiple people associated with “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” were arrested last night and charged with “illegal entry to House office buildings after hours”:

Here’s who got arrested:

Statement from the USCP:

“On June 16, 2022, at approximately 8:30 p.m., U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) received a call for a disturbance in the Longworth House Office Building. Responding officers observed seven individuals, unescorted and without Congressional ID, in a sixth-floor hallway. 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. They were charged with Unlawful Entry.  This is an active criminal investigation, and may result in additional criminal charges after consultation with the U.S. Attorney.”

UPDATE

Jesse Watter just aired a segment that said the group was initially invited in by House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff:
