Washington (CNN)One week after the deadly insurrection at the Capitol, there are still more questions than answers on whether any lawmakers or police assisted the pro-Trump rioters.

And more than a dozen US Capitol Police officers are under internal investigation for allegedly helping rioters.

Rep. Mikie Sherrill, a New Jersey Democrat, made waves Tuesday night when she accused unnamed Republican lawmakers of helping rioters by bringing them into the Capitol one day earlier for a "reconnaissance" mission of sorts.

Sherrill said there were "members of Congress who had groups coming through the Capitol that I saw on January 5th for reconnaissance for the next day. " CNN has repeatedly asked Sherrill's office for details about her accusation, but they have not provided any additional information.

Prosecutors haven't yet accused any of those Trump supporters of coordinating with Republican lawmakers or sympathetic police officers, but the massive investigation is still in its early stages.

At least two US Capitol Police officers have already been suspended, and at least 10 more are under investigation, for allergy playing some sort of role in the insurrection, CNN reported.
