U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona on Monday morning denied giving reconnaissance tours the day before the deadly siege on the U.S. Capitol that interrupted the electoral vote count certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
“I haven’t taken anyone on a tour of the Capitol in I don’t know how many months,” Biggs told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s The Mike Broomhead Show.
“I know exactly where I was on Jan. 5, I had a series of meetings and then I was home with my family.”
The comments are in response to Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-N.J.) who in a Facebook video accused some members of Congress of having groups come through the Capitol on Jan. 5 for reconnaissance.
