Just to follow up on our post from earlier tonight on Colbert-gate, Fox News’ Chad Pergram is reporting that a staffer to Rep. Jake Auchincloss (D-MA) let the Stephen Colbert’s film crew into the Longworth House Office Building after the U.S. Capitol Police had kicked them out:

According to Pergram, the group had tried to get press credentials to cover the January 6 hearings but were rejected “out of hand because they are not ‘news.’”

But they could have been in the building lawfully if they were invited:

“Fox is told the Colbert team conducted interviews earlier in the day Thursday with 1/6 committee members Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Stephanie Murphy (D-FL).”

They also interviewed Rep. Auchincloss before getting bounced from the building:

CBS released a statement saying that the “interviews at the Capitol were authorized and pre-arranged through Congressional aides of the members interviewed”:

This is when the Auchincloss staffer comes into play:

And it sounds like CBS is claiming that this second trip was authorized, too:

We need a hearing to get to the bottom of it!

This *is* the question:

We’re going to need to see phone records, too:

Our democracy is at stake!
