If you thought Rudy Giuliani was the last Trump “co-conspirator” to have the feds noisily swarm through his home in an early morning raid, think again. Paul and Marilyn Hueper, an Alaska couple knows better. On the morning of Apr. 28, the Huepers were awakened when a dozen armed FBI agents kicked down their front door. Paul Hueper, according to the Alaska Watchman, “recalled that he was alarmed and shocked to come out of his bedroom” to find “seven guns pointing at him and his wife.”

“It was a little alarming when I turned around the corner,” Paul said. “The first thing they did was start barking out commandments.”

Ultimately, the couple was handcuffed and interrogated for the better part of three hours. …

Paul said he repeatedly asked to see a search warrant but was denied until two and a half hours had gone by. During that time, he was separated from his wife.

“We sat there really for the first hour, not knowing what’s going on. … They never offered for us to be comfortable,” he added, “It was very harshly done.”

Paul said the agents ransacked the house and left a huge hole in his front door, which they offered to replace.

Paul said he knew he was innocent of whatever they suspected of him and his wife, but that it was still “all pretty confusing.”

After more than an hour, the agents told him that the raid had to do with the Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol.

Marilyn Hueper resembled a woman who is believed to have stolen a laptop belonging to Nancy Pelosi, which purportedly went missing during the “insurrection.” The “agents claimed that they had positively identified Marilyn as being in the Capitol building and that they wanted to know who she was working with.”

The Huepers were in D.C. for Donald Trump’s rally that fateful day, but they never came close to entering the Capitol, Paul Hueper submits. What’s more is that despite similarities, the differences between the two women are marked enough for the agents ultimately to concede it was a case of mistaken identity.

But before the agents ultimately arrived at that conclusion, they made life a living hell for the Huepers.

It would be interesting to learn whether any of the suspected rioters in Portland who attacked a federal courthouse and set fires in March were subjected to the same type of ordeal.
