The DC Detention Facility has refused to let Representatives Paul Gosar, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, and Louie Gohmert tour the prison and is accusing the members of Congress of trespassing. The prison has now locked the representatives out of the building. An attorney who arrived with the members of Congress has also been barred from speaking to his client.
The DC Detention Facility, where January 6 detainees are being held, has refused to allow Representatives Paul Gosar, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Matt Gaetz, and Louie Gohmert to tour the facility to see how the inmates are being treated amid reports of torturous, inhumane treatment. The facility received a letter last week informing them that the Representatives would be coming by to tour the prison, but received no response. When the Representatives attempted to tour the facility, they were accused of trespassing and seemingly threatened with arrest. While inside, the warden lied to the Representatives, saying that a superintendent was outside waiting to speak to them. When the members of Congress walked out to speak to the supposed superintendent, the doors were locked behind them. The prison is a public building and the Representatives had arrived during business hours. Despite this, the members of Congress have been literally locked out of the jail. An attorney who arrived alongside the Representatives has also been prevented from seeing his client.

Yesterday, the Representatives held a press conference outside of the Department of Justice regarding the mistreatment and abuse of January 6 detainees. The conference was interrupted by leftist agitators who showed up with whistles and a large flatbed truck that played loud music.

Speaking exclusively with National File, Congressman Gosar spoke out against the indefinite detainment of January 6 prisoners, slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s partisan January 6 Select Committee, and suggested that the FBI-sponsored alleged plot to kidnap Michigan Governor is “proof in the pudding” that undercover federal actors likely infiltrated the pro-Trump crowd on January 6 to sabotage the peaceful protest.
