Stephen Colbert staffers arrested for trespassing on Capitol Hill

Seven staffers from “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” were arrested for allegedly trespassing in a Capitol Hill building on Thursday night, authorities said.

The rogue employees were found at about 8:30 p.m. by US Capitol Police officers inside the Longworth House Office Building, which houses offices for members of the House of Representatives, the department told The Post in a statement.

The ‘Late Show’ associates were “unescorted and without Congressional ID” in a hallway on the sixth floor, USCP said.

The building was closed to the public at the time, and Capitol Police said they had asked the group to leave the grounds earlier in the day.

While there were seven arrests, a total of nine people were stopped by officers, including Robert Smigel, the voice behind Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, the Associated Press reported, citing a person familiar with the matter.

Fox News reported that the same group had been escorted from the Jan. 6 committee hearing hours earlier because they lacked proper press credentials.
