Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert responds to statements of Capitol excursions

DENVER (KDVR) — Three times just after the Speaker of the Residence declared an investigation into lawmaker involvement in the insurrection, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is going through new allegations.

Tennessee Congressman Steve Cohen stated in an interview Monday morning:

“We saw Congresswoman Boebert taking a team of persons for a tour sometime immediately after the 3rd and ahead of the 6th.”

Boebert responded late Monday afternoon, indicating: “Representative Cohen’s declare that he saw me give a reconnaissance tour with folks not on the staff is 100% wrong. I have hardly ever supplied any tours of the U.S. Capitol in the 117th Congress to any person in addition to spouse and children customers in town for my swearing in. As Customers of Congress, we have a responsibility to elevate the discourse and unify during situations of disaster. However, Rep. Cohen instead chose to go on CNN currently to repeat irresponsible lies in get to elevate his personal political relevance and to more gasoline the division of our place.”

In a letter to members of Congress attained by FOX31, the Sergeant at Arms specially stated the Capitol and Capitol Conference Middle continue to be closed to all excursions, such as member-led and staff-led excursions.
