According to the affidavit, a witness who spoke to authorities claimed to have seen a video of Williams "taking a laptop computer or hard drive from Speaker Pelosi's office.""[Witness 1] stated that Williams intended to send the computer device to a friend in Russia, who then planned to sell the device to SVR, Russia's foreign intelligence service," the agent noted.

Small potatoes ~ they were looking for Nancy Pelosi to kill her.

I suppose when these dimwits broke into the House chamber they expected to find the confirmation still in progress. Instead they found an empty room and didn't know what else to do. We all heard somebody shout "Where's Nancy?" So they went looking Nancy Pelosi's office ~ to kill her. All they got for their trouble was a computer.

Ted Cruz' name was prominently caught on tape, too, as a supporter of what they were doing there. Was Cruz a conduit for Trump? He'll have some 'splainin' to do, too. I hope he FBI checks his phone records. And Josh Hawleys, too.

These two need to be expelled!

"whose former romantic partner says she took a laptop from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office during the riot at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month."

Tsk, tsk.

It would appear that he/she no longer considered Williams "marriage material" once he/she found out that his/her almost future wife turned out to be "prison material" instead.

Love is sometimes a fragile (and fleeting) thing.

So if they had managed to kill both Pelosi and Pence who was next in line? Pompeo or Grassley, someone else?

Hey Riley, watch out for those broom handles when in the shower. Don't worry, those orange scrubs you will be modeling soon are the official "Dotard Orange" color, which Pantone has selected as the color all Trump-inspired criminal dolts will model in their prison years...

The statement from Pelosi's office is that the laptop that was stolen was only used for presentations.

This episode probably points more to the stupidity of the insurrectionists than anything else.

So it turns out Trump was on the phone with Putin during the attempted coup/riot on January 6, while a Trump supporter was stealing Nancy Pelosi's laptop in order to sell it to Russia. But no, why would anyone possibly believe Trump and Putin are in cahoots to overthrow democracy in America?

Imagine being 22 and destroying your life over ------- and insane right wing conspiracies!
She will likely spend 10+ years of her life in prison thinking about this either doubling down on her beliefs or regretting her lif choices

According to Trump, he's been the victim of numerous hoaxes:

Enabled insurrection, fake
Russia, hoax
Covid, hoax
Biden election, fraud
News media, fake
Obama's birth certificate, fake

None of his followers and very few of the leaders of his party noticed anything odd about this long list. Everyone else was lying, not Donald.

In other words, Dems should hail him as the best activist of our time, the same they did to Snowden.
