Right Wing Politician Lauren Boebert Tweeted whereabouts of members of Congress, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi


Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert is facing new calls to resign or be removed from Congress over two brief messages sent from her Twitter account during last week’s deadly attack by right-wing extremists on the U.S. Capitol.

The tweets, which received fresh scrutiny after being widely recirculated by Boebert’s critics on Sunday, were sent in the minutes after a violent mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters breached the Capitol building on the afternoon of Jan. 6. As rioters, who killed one U.S. Capitol Police officer and injured many others, began rampaging through the building and vocally targeting elected officials, Boebert’s Twitter account relayed information concerning the whereabouts of members of Congress, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“We were locked in the House Chambers,” Boebert tweeted at 2:17 p.m. One minute later, she added: “The Speaker has been removed from the chambers.”
