The Georgia lawmaker has previously acknowledged hosting people in parts of the Capitol complex on Jan. 5 when it was closed due to pandemic restrictions, but denied it was for a “reconnaissance tour.”

“A constituent family with young children meeting their congressman at the House office buildings is not a suspicious group or a ‘scouting tour.’ The family never entered the Capitol building,” Loudermilk said in a statement in May.

“No place the family went to on the 5th was violated on the 6th, the family did not enter the Capitol grounds on the 6th, and no one in that family was subjected to investigated or charged in connection with January 6,” the statement also said. .

Asked by reporters on Wednesday who he visited on Jan. 5, 2021, Loudermilk said, “It was family and guests of people they brought from Georgia.”

“I don’t know him. I’ve never met him before,” he added of the man in the video.

Loudermilk was also asked about the claim that the man took pictures of security checkpoints in a basement and of a stairwell.

The lawmaker said he brought visitors to these areas because the kids in the group “wanted to see the toy trains” – referring to the Capitol subway system that takes lawmakers to and from their congressional offices and chambers – and a “golden eagle sconce on the wall” in the stairwell.

“They’re not interested in the truth. They’re only interested in creating a narrative for [the media]“, Loudermilk said of the committee, adding that his office had never received a letter asking for his cooperation. “There is nothing there.

Loudermilk also mentioned that Capitol police reviewed the surveillance video and determined there was nothing suspicious about the tour he led.

“There is no evidence that Rep. Loudermilk entered the United States Capitol with this group on January 5, 2021,” Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger said earlier this week in a letter to the top Republican on the House Administration Committee, The Washington Post reported. “We train our officers to be alert to people carrying out surveillance or reconnaissance, and we do not consider any activity we observe to be suspicious.”

Loudermilk is a member of the House administration committee, which previously said a review of security footage determined there were ‘no visitors, no large groups, no one with MAGA hats’ captured by cameras.

However, Chairman Thompson and the committee’s vice chair, Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, said in the May letter to Loudermilk that “a review of the evidence from the Jan. 6 investigation directly contradicts this denial.”
