Congressional security officials Thursday were investigating a report of a second man who may have passed through security to join a press gaggle inside the U.S. Capitol building earlier this week awaiting President Trump, sources said.
News of a possible second intruder came after another protester managed to infiltrate a group of reporters waiting for Trump, who had been meeting with lawmakers on Capitol Hill, the source told Fox News.
The second person was described as a middle-aged man who stood about 6 feet, 3 inches tall and was dressed in a gray suit and bow tie. When asked by reporters who he worked for, the man replied, “I’m a tourist,” and bragged about being able to sneak inside the Ohio Clock Corridor in the Capitol building.
It previously reported that a protester on Tuesday shouted “Treason!” at Trump and threw mini Russian flags at him as the president arrived for a meeting with Senate Republicans.[contentcards url=”http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/10/27/second-tresspasser-may-have-been-near-trump-in-us-capitol-source-says.html” target=”_blank”]
