Loudermilk has a private stake within the knowledge and information obtained by the January sixth committee. The highly-partisan group overtly accused him of conducting a ‘reconnaissance tour’ previous to the riot on the Capitol.
Even though the Capitol police flatly contradicted their claims, the committee continued to push the debunked conspiracy concept merely to plant the seeds of doubt.
Carlson made public a video exhibiting Loudermilk giving a tour in a congressional workplace constructing down the road – not the Capitol – to constituents, none of whom had been linked to the so-called “rebellion.”
