Why Were The Colbert Show Staff Arrested?

On Thursday, there was a third public hearing that was conducted by the House panel. It was regarding the investigation of the 6th January 2021, Capitol insurrection. The reason for the arrest of the Colbert show staff is still unclear but it seems that the group previously attempted to record multiple interviews in the Cannon House but once they were caught, the police removed them as they failed to have proper press credentials.

But as mentioned earlier that the spokesperson of the Colbert show had been authorized and in spite of that the arrest has been made. 

Capitol Police mentioned getting a call of disturbance while the meeting was continuing in the Longworth House Office Building at around 8.30 p.m.  “Responding officers observed seven individuals, unescorted and without Congressional ID, in a sixth-floor hallway,” “The building was closed to visitors, and these individuals were determined to be a part of a group that had been directed by the USCP to leave the building earlier in the day.”
