PSU: No, it's up to you to prove that they did provide reconnaissance. It isn't up to them to prove they didn't.

I agree with this. And I think it is why it will be impossible to prove that any GOP representatives gave reconnaissance tours to insurrectionists.

A regular tour would show representatives pointing at various hallways and doors and saying things like "Those halls lead to..." and "That is the door to Pelosi's office." A reconnaissance tour would include the same gestures and phrases.

Unless the representatives' directions were interspersed with instructions like "Then, after you push past the police, go down that hall to the big room on the left where you will find a bunch of unarmed Democrats huddled," how could we tell a regular tour (maybe coincidentally for a group of insurrectionists the day before their insurrection) from a reconnaissance tour?
