There was reportedly a scuffle in the halls of Congress on Wednesday.
One day after interim Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) was defeated by Democrat Raphael Warnock, CNN senior congressional correspondent Manu Raju attempted to ask her if she thought she lost in a free and fair election.
Raju reported, "her aide elbowed me out of the way."
When the aide was reprimanded by a Capitol Police officer, the aide reported lied and denied pushing the reporter.
But the officer did not believe the lie.
"Yes you did. I saw you. You can't just push someone out of the way," the officer said.
The officer said to the aide: “Yes you did. I saw you. You can’t just push someone out of the way.” The aide then apologized.— Manu Raju (@Manu Raju) 1609956260.0
