Several employees of Stephen Colbert’s show were arrested last month for unlawfully entering the U.S. Capitol.
The group of nine people were arrested in the Longworth House Office Building after being escorted out of the Jan. 6 committee hearing earlier in the day because they did not have proper press credentials, according to sources.
On Monday, a Biden-appointed US Attorney gave the Stephen Colbert staffers a get-out-of-jail-free card and dropped the charges.
The US Attorney’s Office announced that they are cleared of “unlawful entry” and the charges are now dropped.
From the U.S. Atty's office: "We do not believe it is probable that the Office would be able to obtain and sustain convictions on these charges"

Matthew Graves, the Biden-appointed US Attorney, is also the prosecutor investigating January 6!
Graves also works for US Attorney General Merrick Garland.
If you’re a pro-regime propagandist, you get away scot free for ‘trespassing’ on the U.S. Capitol.
But Trump supporters must rot in prison for the exact same.
“It turns out [Graves] is also the prosecutor investigating January 6th,” Fox News host Jesse Watters said.
“Is he giving those guys the same treatment?”

President Trump blasted the hypocrisy, saying that Colbert’s staffers “were treated so differently than the Unselects are treating so many of our great American Patriots.”
He ended by calling the decision “NOT FAIR!”
From TRUTH Social:
Wow! Prosecutors have just dropped all charges against ratings challenged Colbert Show staffers, who entered the Capitol illegally, disregarded police warnings, wouldn’t leave the premises, and were very loud and disruptive late into the evening, with no security present as is mandated by law. These Radical Left lunatics, from a failing show, were treated so differently than the Unselects are treating so many of our great American Patriots. NOT FAIR!
