[Ed. – The FBI doesn’t allege she had a gun, and it appears she did nothing but enter the Capitol building when others did and leave it shortly thereafter, having behaved like a moron but not doing any damage. This kind of unnecessary nonsense is very costly, giving narrative-spinners on the Left fodder. Many of these cases may get short shrift in court, but it’s their propaganda impact that will matter. The shrieking on the Left is unserious; if they really cared about incendiary talk, they’d acknowledge the relentlessly bloodthirsty rhetoric of the black bloc groups (Antifa, BLM), among others. But it really is important for the sensible, average Right to do better than this. This genuinely is not what the Right represents.]
Federal authorities arrested two women in Pennsylvania on Friday on charges related to the storming of the U.S. Capitol building after the FBI said one of the women expressed an intent to shoot House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
Dawn Bancroft and Diana Santos-Smith were identified by law enforcement after the FBI said it received a tip on Jan. 12 with a video purportedly capturing the two women as they left the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 amid a large mob of people, according to a criminal complaint.
“We broke into the Capitol. . . . We got inside, we did our part,” Bancroft said in the video she sent to her children, according to the FBI. “We were looking for Nancy to shoot her in the friggin’ brain, but we didn’t find her.”
