The FBI is investigating whether a woman who took a laptop belonging to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) during the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol tried to sell it to Russians.

Bureau investigators said in a court filing on Sunday that it received a tip from someone claiming to be a former romantic partner of Riley June Williams. The caller directed the agency to a 32-minute video from inside the Capitol posted to ITV News.

The witness also said friends of Williams showed them a video of her taking a laptop or hard drive from Pelosi’s office. The witness told the FBI 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,” according to the court filing.

The transfer fell through for unknown reasons, according to the affidavit, and Williams either “still has the computer device or destroyed it. This matter remains under investigation.”

  1. Nobody steals the laptop of such a high ranking official without a major profit motive. She had to have known she would get caught and find herself in major hot water for such a thing. Even so the tip is coming from someone she is no longer friends so it has little credibly. How would he know what she stole it for? He isn’t getting updates from her
