FBI files arrest warrant for woman who may have stolen Pelosi’s laptop during riot at the Capitol

Authorities are looking for a woman who is accused of stealing a laptop from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) office during the riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6, the Chicago Tribune reported.

This information comes from an arrest warrant filed by the FBI on Sunday for 22-year-old Riley June Williams of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

The tip

The FBI filed the arrest warrant for Williams after it received a tip from an individual who identified himself as an ex of Williams. The ex claimed that he decided to call the FBI after friends of Williams showed him video footage of the riot that took place at the Capitol building.

In the footage, Williams can be heard yelling “upstairs, upstairs, upstairs,” which would have been in the direction of Pelosi’s office. According to the ex, Williams can be seen “taking a laptop computer or hard drive from Speaker Pelosi’s office.”

On Jan. 8, Pelosi’s Deputy Chief of Staff Drew Hammill revealed that a laptop had been stolen from the conference room. However, Hammill said the laptop that was stolen “was only used for presentations.”

The allegation

According to the ex, Williams had intentions to sell the laptop to someone in Russia.

The FBI’s arrest warrant said the ex “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.”

However, the ex told the FBI that “the transfer of the computer device to Russia fell through for unknown reasons and WILLIAMS still has the computer device or destroyed it.”

The charges

Williams has been charged with knowingly entering a restricted building, violent entry and disorderly conduct.

She has not yet been charged for stealing the laptop.

The FBI said that Williams changed her phone number and deleted several of her social media accounts.

Her mother told local police that her daughter packed a bag and took off, saying that she would be away for a couple of weeks. FBI authorities said that Williams had likely fled. Late on Monday, however, federal law enforcement announced that Williams had surrendered to authorities in Pennsylvania, NBC News reported.

  1. Nancy should be more careful with her laptop and the sensitive information it contains. Nancy, shouldn’t you be keeping something this important under lock and key?? What happened??? Did you forget to secure the laptop??? This is a pretty important issue. Do you have any idea who took it and what they did with it, or what they plan to do with it??? This is pretty careless on your part!!! And, after all YOU are the Speaker of the House??? Should the voters re-think their approval of you as House Speaker???

  2. Don’t worry, old nanny goat has her axx covered by all her lackeys! That laptop and it’s contents will never see the light of day if recovered. The fbi will see to that, just like crackhead hunter biden’s. It will be buried never to be seen!

      1. Why do we, the people, have to face the issues for our crimes and misdemeanors, when Pelosi and Hillary get by with murder and no one does a damn thing about it.

        It’s time to stop paying taxes to fund these pieces of whatever!!

      3. You know? The FBI, and CIA are now commy cookie.
        That Girl should have exposed the contents immediately!! What a doof!
        Old puttyface has nothing to worry about because her lapdog, see nothing, do nothing Wray will accidently drop it into a pool of hydrochloric acid, and oooops!

  4. Don’t worry, it’s being considered to put nancy pelosi in a mental institution! She can’t remember anything about the constitution of the United States, I mean she has broken so many laws, omitted things, and changed what it says. What the hell can you expect from a 80 year old bag?

  5. This seems to be hearsay by an ex and how does hearsay hold up. Is it truth or love/hate situation by adding all this other stuff. Earlier read Pelosi laptop taken and FBI had it. How many laptops did she leave out? In a secure environment you aren’t suppose to have everything out? How many does she take home because bringing personal laptops in we use to say there could not be taken out again for security reasons of what someone may have on them after being in the secure office. Is Congress exempt from law and can just blame someone else for their mistakes?

  6. For anyone in her position to leave a laptop unsecured is unacceptable and so careless as to warrant immediate dismissal from her position. In
    a private corporation she would be terminated within 24 hours. Let’s call this one *Nancygate*.

  8. I know how she can she can turn things around for herself All she has to say is she got the idea at the DC rally that morning.

  9. Nancy should have her clearance taken away from her. It is her responsibility no matter what to keep her laptop safe.
