It was not possible a conviction could be obtained and continue because the nine people arrested were permitted into the building and their bodyguards never ordered them to leave, said a spokesperson of the U.S attorney.

Nine persons were detained by Capitol Police, according to a source aware of the situation, even though Capitol Police has refused to provide the names of those arrested. Triumph the Insult Comic Dog’s voice actor, and writer Robert Smigel was among the group.

US Attorney’s Office made the judgment, and Capitol Police personnel said they respect that decision.

Congressional staff advised the group numerous times before they entered the buildings that they must remain with a staff escort inside, and the group did not comply, according to police. The group was arrested on counts of unauthorized entry.

Group invited by congressional workers, according to prosecutors, and never asked to leave by those staffers. It was reported that police had informed certain members of the nine-person group that they should have an escort when they were detained.

An attorney’s spokesperson for the US attorney’s office said the Office would have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that these guests were guilty of unauthorized entry because their escort chose to leave them alone. “We don’t think the Office will be able to achieve and sustain convictions on these counts,” the office said.
