FBI Probes Claim that Rioter Planned to Sell Pelosi Hard Drive to Russia

The FBI is investigating allegations that a woman who entered the Capitol on Jan. 6 stole a laptop or hard drive from Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office and intended to sell it to Russians, reports Politico.  The  FBI emphasized that the claim still remains under investigation and it is also unclear if they have been able to apprehend her or even if a laptop/hard drive was stolen.  According to the affidavit, a witness who spoke to authorities claimed to have seen a video of a woman identified as Riley June Williams of Pennsylvania.  The affidavit quoted the witness as saying she 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,”  However, according to the witness, the sale fell through for unknown reasons.  For now, Williams is facing charges of entering a restricted building and disorderly conduct for her actions inside the Capitol.
