“We’re coming in like white on rice, for Pelosi, Nadler, Schumer, even you AOC,” he said, using the nickname for progressive rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

‘We’ll pull you out by your hair. And that Pelosi?’ he continued. ‘You might as well make another appointment. When I’m done with you. You need a polish on that bald head,” the man said.

Loudermilk had previously claimed that he took a constituency family on a tour of the House office buildings and not the Capitol itself.

Manger said police viewed surveillance video of Loudermilk touring the Rayburn and Cannon House Office buildings

“At no point did the group appear in tunnels that would have led them to the Capitol,” Manger said in the letter.

“There is no evidence that Representative Loudermilk entered the US Capitol with this group on January 5, 2021,” the letter read. “We train our officers to be on the alert for people monitoring or conducting reconnaissance, and we don’t consider any of the activities we’ve observed as suspicious,” Manger added.

Loudermilk called on the select committee to “double down on their smear campaign” and push a “false story.”

“As the Capitol Police confirmed, nothing about this voter visit was suspicious,” the Georgian Republican said. “The photos show children holding bags from House’s gift shop, which was open to visitors, and taking pictures of the Rayburn train.”

He also pointed out that nowhere where he traveled with the composing group was violated by the MAGA mob the next day, furthermore “no one in that group was charged with any criminal charges related to January 6.”

“Once again, the committee released this letter to the press and did not contact me. This kind of behavior is irresponsible and has real consequences, including continued death threats to myself, my family and my staff,” Loudermilk said.
