WOW! Laptop Stolen from Top Democrat During Capitol Protest
Last Wednesday, during the protest in Washington, D.C. there was quite a bit of damage done and there were quite a few items stolen as well.
One person appears to have stolen a podium. How on earth he made that happen or why he thought that was a good idea is beyond my understanding.
But something much more important was stolen from the Capitol that day. It has now been confirmed that a laptop belonging to Nancy Pelosi was stolen as well.

According to Reuters,
Drew Hammill, an aide to Democrat Pelosi, said on Twitter that the laptop belonged to a conference room and was used for presentations. He declined to offer further details.
The theft of electronic devices from congressional offices has been a persistent worry following the invasion by pro-Trump followers. They were encouraged by Republican President Donald Trump at a rally beforehand to march to the Capitol while Congress was certifying Democrat Joe Biden’s Nov. 3 election win.
Senator Jeff Merkley, a Democrat, said on Twitter on Thursday that a laptop was taken from his office.
The demonstrators who broke into the Capitol posted several photographs of themselves using congressional phones and various other devices. One reporter with the right-wing outlet Blaze posted a photograph of what purported to be a computer from Pelosi’s office with emails “still on the screen.”
During the protest, I did see a photo someone took of a computer in Nancy Pelosi’s office, but I decided not to write about it or include a photo of the screen at the time because I honestly was concerned as to whether or not it could come back as a federal crime for sharing the information that was on the screen. I truly don’t know what was on the screen so I wasn’t going to play chicken with the government.
Who knows what kind of secret information was on that computer, but I’ll guarantee that they are tracked down and caught, because I’m sure the laptop had some sort of tracking on it and that whoever took it doesn’t know how to avoid detection.
