Several suspicious visitors were seen entering the Capitol on the 5th of January before the building was violently broken into. Sources claim that only personnel or other members of Congress would have permitted entry. There is no other way in.
The demand was made through a letter that was signed by over thirty Democrats. The letter was forwarded to Capitol Police’s head along with armed sergeants of the Senate. The tour to the capital on 5th January was deemed suspicious because tours in the building were shut down. The shutdown was due to the Covid19 pandemic, taking place back in March 2020.
