A growing group of Republican lawmakers are playing chicken with the Capitol police after refusing a new mask mandate despite the threat of arrest.

A growing group of Republican lawmakers are playing chicken with the Capitol police after refusing a new mask mandate despite the threat of arrest.

Capitol police chief Thomas Manger ordered officers to report any members of Congress who refuse to wear a mask, warning they would be subject to arrest for unlawful entry under DC Code 22-3302.

While officers were directed to report members to the Sergeant at Arms before an immediate arrest, they weren’t told to give any staff or visitors the same leeway.

House representatives Thomas Massie and Nancy Mace dared Nancy Pelosi and police to come at them, while Lauren Boebert aurait dropped an offered mask to the floor and Marjorie Taylor Greene called on every Republican to ignore thebulls*it”.

This is INSANE,” Mr Massie tweeted. “Might as well come into my office and arrest my entire staff. We are not wearing masks. I support the Capitol Hill Police, but the Chief of Police made a mistake here. The physician and the chief of police don’t have this authority.
