Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz locked out of facility holding January 6th prisoners

A group of GOP lawmakers have been turned away from a Washington DC prison as they attempted to inspect the conditions of Capitol rioters.

Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene were among the group warned they were trespassing and obstructing the entrance to the correctional facility.
