Colbert is as much responsible as those who went in. He needs to be brought in with them!!!

So, will they be charged with trespassing and be thrown in jail for a month, like the hundreds of people that entered the open doors of the Capital building and charged with trespassing for taking selfies inside?? I think not, as they all work for a leftist TV show. A federal building is still a federal building no matter what name is on it. Colbert should be fired as he incited this criminal activity. Repubs need an investigating commitee to have hearings on this un-American breach of a federal building!
