7 Linked To Stephen Colbert Show Arrested In House’s Office Building

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Capitol Police said on Friday that officers arrested seven unauthorized people at a Congressional office building Thursday night and charged them with unlawful entry.

The people identified themselves as affiliated with CBS’ “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.

Another person familiar with the case provided the AP with a list of nine people detained by the Capitol Police. They include several producers, along with Robert Smigel, the voice behind Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.

The two people who spoke to the AP were unable to publicly discuss the details of the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The incident Thursday night followed the third public hearing by the House panel investigating the Capitol uprising on January 6, 2021.
