Capitol Rioter Accused Of Stealing Nancy Pelosi’s Laptop Arrested

A female Capitol rioter who was accused of stealing Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Laptop has been arrested by Police.

According to reports, the female Capitol rioter was arrested on Monday after her former romantic partner accused her of taking the laptop or hard drive from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office with the intention of selling it to the Russians, authorities said.

Riley June Williams, of Pennsylvania, who was seen on video taking part in the Capitol siege, was charged with entering a restricted building and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, according to Department of Justice records.

The FBI is also investigating the Nancy Pelosi’s laptop theft claims, though there is no indication that one was actually pilfered from the speaker’s office. Williams has not been charged in connection to that allegation.

According to an affidavit filed Sunday, a witness described as a former romantic partner of Williams claimed to have seen footage of her “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,” court documents allege.

“According to [Witness 1], the transfer of the computer device to Russia fell through for unknown reasons and Williams still has the computer device or destroyed it,” according to the affidavit, which includes a link to a news segment on the US Capitol raid produced by Britain’s ITV News.

A woman who has been identified as Williams — wearing glasses, a green shirt, brown trench coat and carrying a bag over her shoulder — is seen on video yelling, “Upstairs, upstairs, upstairs,” and pushing people toward Pelosi’s office.
