A GOP lawmaker who has said there was no insurrection was seen barricading the House on January 6.

But he had been photographed pushing furniture against the chamber's doors.

A photo emerged of a GOP lawmaker who last week downplayed the Capitol siege and compared the rioters to tourists barricading the House doors with furniture on January 6.

Rep. Andrew Clyde said during a House oversight committee hearing on Wednesday that it was a "bald-faced lie" to call the riot an insurrection.

He said the riot, in which hundreds of Trump supporters breached the Capitol, resembled a "normal tourist visit.".

In the hearing last week, Clyde addressed his attempts to barricade the House and suggested that because rioters did not breach the chamber it was not an insurrection.

He also falsely claimed that police officers had not confiscated any firearms from people who breached the Capitol. »
