Rep. Loudermilk was not telling the reality. It wasn’t simply one other day. The Capitol Police despatched a letter to all members on January 4th banning excursions of all Capitol buildings on January sixth and placing the Capitol on lockdown.
The Capitol was getting ready for hassle, so when Loudermilk claimed that January fifth was simply one other day, he was mendacity.
